Pour Homme is a masculine Fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent. The fragrance was launched in 1971 by the perfumer Raymond Chaillan and it was packaged by Pierre Dinand.
Pour Homme is a fresh fragrance with an aromatic chypre trail. The top note is citric, lemon and petit grain, tinged with a touch of mint. The top note is citric, lemon and petit grain, tinged with a touch of mint. All the freshness here is sustained by a vibrant base of oak moss which, combined with patchouli, delivers masculinity and strength, sophistication and elegance.
This is a quote from a previous reviewer.I can agree.
YSL Pour Homme was a fragrance of Early Disco for me.
Darvant speaks of an initial “Dirtyness” Yep! This mixed with the perspiration soaked Silk shirts, were the order of the day. We called those “Wormshirts” with an envious sneer. Smart, Slick, Rayon for us plebes on the wage.
In any case, the dance floor reeked of this filth mixed with Rive Gauche for the girls. Ah, what a time!
Up close it smelled of Pine Sol and Lemony Pledge.
On the floor, in the heat and the grind it’s fragrance was of sweaty, immoral carnality. Glorious!
None of the Classy Formality of Pour Monsieur or the sleek cool casual Elegance of the Armani.
However, for those who remember “The Bump” there really was no better.
