Sophisticated, but soft
by Lorenzo on Oct 13, 2016
I found this scent is very fresh and inoffensive. It can be easily worn in close quarters without being overbearing. Be sure to carry a small decant with you though, because the longevity on this one will only crawl into lunchtime.

If you only buy one cologne this year, consider making this it. Fantastic scent.
Sophisticated. Enticing. Delicious.

I've been wearing L'Homme for several years now and it's become one of my favorite all time scents. I wore it for my wedding in 2012, so it has special place in my heart. The scent is simply sophistication in a bottle; great for formal events and work. Approachable, yet interesting enough to get you noticed. Although not classified as a gourmand, it satisfies my foodie tendencies with a delicious blend of ginger and spices, backed by a rich, warm sweetness. A must-have for my collection.

One of the best scents for gathering compliments. Very likable, safe and charismatic.

This is one of the best fragrances, the longevity on me is a bit moderate but it has a good sillage. It works for both day and night

This is a very nice, safe scent that nearly everyone likes. The ginger and citrus blend well together. Longevity and projection are almost non-existent, though. Ultime is better!

This is very close to being unisex. Its very clean and a little soft. Doesn't last very long but it is magical when you can smell it. I want to dunk my bf in this!
Excellent all-around fragrance!
by Ronald on Jan 14, 2016
This fragrance is amazing and I get many compliments when wearing this. The warm ginger sets the tone with some citrus in the opening, fresh spices in the middle and it dries down with cedar, vetiver and tonka bean. If you only have one or a few fragrances, this would be an excellent choice. Great all round use for office, gym and evenings. Also will be suitable during any time of the year. Light enough to wear in spring and summer, but spicy enough for fall and winter as well. I also layer with the Eau de Parfum version sometimes to give more depth and longevity
Nice fruity balance

Scent has nice fruity balance, not too soft or strong.
Flanker is more interesting
by Nazia on Dec 30, 2015
This is a lightly creamy, spicy scent. The top is fresh and citrusy with ginger, and the softly spicy drydown follows soon after - it is very smooth. It's a nice scent, but I find it a little uninteresting. I prefer La Nuit de L'Homme from this collection.
by Michelle on Dec 6, 2015
Very soft and versatile. I think I like this better than its flanker La Nuit. Starts off creamy with cardamon and ends soft.

What can I say? This is just amazing. I remember smelling this out of a magazine years before I really got into fragrances and I loved it at first sniff. Years later I finally bought a 100 ml. I am now on my 2nd and my love for this is still as strong. There is something about this scent that is just so up lifting and effervescent Lots of ginger and smooth spices with some light woods and vetiver. Very classy scent and can be warm anytime, anywhere. In the spring-summer it is refreshing with the ginger and in the winter it is warming to me with the spices. Just my favorite scent ever. It's only down fall is the longevity, but if you go a little heavy on the sprays it lasts all day without being overbearing or cloying.
Simple, casual fragrance
by Sean on Oct 24, 2015
I think this is a little overrated, but it's not bad. It would be good for work and casual wear. I would not recommend wearing it in the summer.
This is generally a well-received fragrance, so it's worth trying.
Similar to a Creed fragrance.
by Jeffrey on Jul 23, 2015
I like this fragrance. It smells very fresh and green. It very much reminds me of one of the Creed fragrances for men like:Himalaya, Green Irish Tweed, Royal water or even Erolfa. This hardly has any sweetness at all on my skin, and my chemistry usually brings any and all sweet notes to the top. This is a nice fragrance for the day in the Spring or early Summer.

just blows me away EVERY time.
winter in a bottle...
by Hoodie on Dec 14, 2014
This is a pleasant safe scent it smells creamy to me. Could easily be a signature scent. Manly definitely isn't a word that comes to mind.
by Skilar on Nov 24, 2014
This is a very sweet scent, and is not for everybody. However I enjoy it and on my skin it lasts for about 6-7 hours with moderate projection.
by Carrie on Oct 6, 2014
This was an assault to my senses. I couldn't pinpoint a particular note but it reminded me of tobacco leaves.
by Joseph on Oct 3, 2014
one of the best by YSL, very sweet
clean soapy and effeminate
by on the search on Jun 1, 2014
A very effeminate scent fit for everyone from grandma to your neighborhood meterosexual. Right off, the scent is really fantastic, it really is good, honestly. But, for some reason on my skin the dry down is soapy and effeminate with a very clean scent. This is just something you have to experiment on yourself to see... I will rate this high because it is not a bad scent at all, it just doesn't match my taste and body chem.

Yves Saint Laurent's L’Homme is a timeless classic that, I believe, is safe, well-balanced, and nicely attractive. Masculine yet pleasant, this fragrance will certainly appeal to nearly the whole population, men & women, young & old!
This scent works for all occasions and with all audiences. It begins with a fresh opening involving citrus and ginger, and then the bergamot chimes in more as it warms and dries on your skin. Hours after application, you will still be able to appreciate the harmony of woods, spices, and yummy tonka bean. While no individual note stands out, this fragrance is a perfect example of how a thoughtful blend of many notes can engender a marvelous, seemingly linear finish. It's just gorgeous!
If you are seeking a fragrance for daily wear that is certain not to offend others, I would, personally, go ahead and blind buy this one, especially given the discounted prices out there these days. It's up to you, but do try to sample it at least. So good!!
