When "less" is more...
Disclaimer: I am an older gentleman of advanced retirement age who has applied fragrances for personal pleasure all his life. I have neither an analytical nose and professional background knowledge, nor the urge to remain as objective as possible in evaluations, as far as this seems at all possible with fragrances.

Do you also know this typical dilemma, namely to want to do it right to many people, but ultimately no one completely satisfied? Whether it is at work as a mediator between the board and the employees, or but in the organization of the big family celebration with participants who can not stand each other to death?

And do you remember how unfairly you feel you are treated at such moments, knowing your own effort best?

It is precisely this injustice that I would not want to inflict on the fragrance Lalique Hommage à l'Homme Edt. here, for example, using the disingenuous accusation of being too little "iconic" or exceptional, since it is precisely in its distinguished universality that its real charm and actual greatness lies hidden.

Usually it is the "loud" fragrances which cause a sensation, which make us stop in the midst of life to bashfully ask our counterpart what fragrance we have just heard.
Suddenly, everyone seems to apply the appropriate fragrance until it already comes out of our ears ourselves, and it is rumored that quite a few ladies and gentlemen here have already felt haunted by Alien, Le Male, Sauvage and similar smells.

Lalique's Hommage à l'Homme goes exactly the opposite way, and does everything right.

He complements an always pleasantly sweet - never dominant - floral bouquet with contoured sharp accents.
In particular, the black pepper in the composition proves to be a high-end dream, which opposes the fruit sweetness with downright cutting minty freshness, to finally unite in the highest harmony with it, and then even as a coronation together at the final chord to fall in love on a Victorian Chesterfield sofa made of the very finest hand-sewn genuine leather.

Who is inwardly ready to part with vain-uncertain resentments, in order to engage instead with all his soul concentrated on the poem-like balance of this composition - this duel-like pasodoble of floral citrus ying and pepper yang - will possibly be rewarded with the discovery of a fabulously signature men's fragrance, which may finally spend modern cautious sweetness with absolute masculinity perfectly formed and cultivated in harmony.

He is not a Compliment Catcher, and certainly not a passionate affair, but just the sort of rare character, which could prove in the long run not only as a trustworthy partner, but also as true love. This fragrance will really understand them, so they should also treat him with appreciation.

The bottle makes a great shelf, and thereby radiates a certain value, but at the same time remains in the form language just as noble-restrained as, for example, typical Guerlain flacon.

The ridiculously low price should not prevent you from wearing it as a daily.

For what reason are you still looking...?

Fahrenheit violets with a kick
Not too long ago I had commented Portrayal Man from Amouage and criticized that its methyloctine carbonate, i.e. its violet leaf substitute, was too reminiscent of Fahrenheit. It's not a crime in itself, but it looked more like a bumpy dupe.

Violet leaf is also included here in Hommage à l'Homme. However, far more interesting integrated and independent.
The smart thing about it: as it progresses, the Fahrenheit violet is accompanied by a rich and noble, warm woody note. But that is by no means all, because the eau de toilette also alternates between fine spicy pipe tobacco and the subtle touch of cinnamon apple pie fresh from the oven. The allspice leaf could have a hand in this.

The oud is almost not noticeable, but nobody would miss it either. Or it is so cleverly woven in that although it reflects a certain warmth, it remains very discreetly in the background.

The same applies towards the end to the musk, whereby Hommage à l'Homme admittedly does not throw the masculine testosterone club, but definitely rather brings out the cultivated side of the gentlemen. One could also call it a chef's fragrance, as long as it has a calm, confident aura and experience. That figures!
You're just an intern? Then go back another five fields and rather look for something among the current sweet mainstreamers ...

The only thing I noticed a tiny bit negative about the Hommage à l'Homme is the plastic cap on the fancy bottle. I think a material of higher quality would have been more consistent for this homage to the man.

Subject: Your product - Hommage à l'Homme
Ladies and Gentlemen,

my name is Profumorist and I am editor of a perfume online evaluation platform surely known to you. As I have tested and appreciated some of your products in the past (e.g. Encre Noire, Encre Noire Sport and White), I would love to devote myself to another of your products. Namely the Hommage à l'Homme. A perfume that I have been able to test several times and which I liked very much right from the start.

But since I am not a trained nose in deciphering individual fragrance components, I would kindly ask you to explain some details and aspects of your product to me. I would be particularly interested in information about the course of the fragrance, the durability, the sillage and the bottle.

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely

Profumorist

Dear Professor,

first of all, thank you very much for sending us your e-mail and the trust you have placed in our products from the Lalique Group.

First of all we would like to mention that we were able to win Christine Nagel for the composition of our product Hommage à l'Homme. Christine Nagel is a recognized master of her trade and is now the successor to the great Jean-Claude Ellena, head perfumer at Hermès.

The top note of our product Hommage à l'Homme is characterized by a fresh and at the same time metallic-cool start. The main component of our product Hommage à l'Homme, the violet or violet leaf, in combination with the bergamot and the spice of saffron, provides this effect. Violet is not used very often in the art of perfume. In our opinion, there are no corresponding comparisons with Christian Dior's Fahrenheit. With the heart note, the interplay of pepper and pimento leaf is added and provides this unmistakable fresh, spicy impression, which continues to be accompanied by the violet slightly cool. Towards the base, the oud and the musk become more recognizable and give the fragrance an additional slightly animalistic touch.

Extraordinary, noble, classic and therefore timeless. A tribute to the man.

Our product Hommage à l'Homme was designed in such a way that you can enjoy a whole working day without any problems, but without taking up too much of your colleagues' time.

As you may know, Lalique has been world famous for its glass art since its beginnings in the 19th century. Of course, this quality should also be reflected in our perfume bottles. The design of our unusual bottle made of heavy glass is intended to remind us of the coffered ceiling of the Pantheon in Rome. This coffered ceiling not only served as a visual design, but was also intended to reduce the weight and thus the bearing load and thus contribute to the enduring durability and stability of the entire building. Our product Hommage à l'Homme is also intended to make it easier to cope with the burden of everyday life and to give you a feeling of freedom.

We wish you continued pleasure with our products.

Yours sincerely

Your Lalique Group Germany

That's all I need! :-)
Slowly my perfume collection is enjoying an unprecedented size. But before I become a fragrance junkie, I'm going to rein in my testing and buying activities for now - that's the plan! ;-) I have recently "swarmed" in all possible directions, approached old classics, tried modern scent grenades, put rare niche scents to the olfactory test and completed my preferred scent fresh-fruity/spicy/woody to suit my budget
And as the headline shows: Hommage à L'Homme has just been missing for me and that in the truest sense of the word. I can also tell you why: Not quite young in years of life (Ü45), I can't usually do much with the harp classics so famous here. They simply don't suit me as a creative designer and alternative music fan who digs out of the closet for a suit and tie at the highest time for a wedding. But of course: I'm no more than 20 and I'm happy to do without most of the current hypes and trends - also with regard to fragrances.

The classic bottle in the Guerlain style naturally indicates that H à H's target group is less the young urban hipster, but rather the seasoned, possibly stylish gentleman. And to 70 percent the fragrance embodies the expected and thus the classic high art of fragrance design, which unfortunately all too often is not my thing: too smoky, too spicy, too leathery, too mossy ... there's almost always something that bothers my nose, even though I think I'm highlighting the quality of the creation. The higher the percentages for "older" are, the more I can be sure that a fragrance and I will not be friends.

But H à H is characterized by the fact that it is not too "anything" for me and does not contain a fragrance that frightens me off from the outset ... and that without slipping into squeaky modernity or trendy sweetness. With a "classic men's fragrance" you simply do without oak moss and leather and instead manage to set slightly flowery, fresh and sweet accents. But not too much of everything, so that I get the impression to have a great year-round scent in front of me, which does justice to the jacket as well as to the hoodie. To make a final comparison: no hearty beer, no peaty single malt, no hip gin gin mule ... simply a good and full-bodied Pinot Gris!

Silver Metallic And Pearl Effect
A strong individual character is what we typically experience with gent's perfumes by Lalique. Hommage à L'Homme is on the market for a while now and also part of my collection, yet, I find it difficult to evaluate.

Not only due to its outer appearance, Hommage à L'Homme is breaking up with the Lalique tradition. This perfume is background only, nothing in there is distinctive or unwieldy, and one has to look for good to find a certain statement.

Even though this note is not listed: Hommage à L'Homme for me classifies into the group of modern, dry amber perfumes, like Prada Amber pour Homme Intense or Eau de Iceberg 74.

A very discreet, dry and greyish smoke stands in the main focus – nothing else. This smells somehow transparent, with a minimal rubber appeal and the idea of burnt amber at last. More friendly and brighter notes - such as violet or bergamot – may be in but are not very discernible. It is a downright anti-perfume!

Hommage a L'Homme projects a dry smoke into the aura of its wearer. I don't see a development that is worth mentioning. This fragrance is as discreet as convenient to wear. There is nothing distracting in there, nothing to provoke objection – one cannot go wrong with it. Wearing Hommage à L'Homme is just as thrilling as choosing silver metallic as the colour of your new car. Okay, this fragrance is really well done and refined: silver metallic with pearl effect!

When should one wear this, and why? I think Hommage à L'Homme should be granted a spot on your bath room shelf, always within reach. You can grab this bottle quickly when you are late in the morning and have no time for musing about your perfume of the day. Hommage à L'Homme will enfold a pleasant carpet before you which with its transparent mist will protect you from the worst demands of the beginning working day. On your way to your job you will notice that you have caught something nice. And the car you are driving (silver metallic, of course!) will slide throught the morning traffic just a little bit more relaxed and elegant .

Such a lot of understatement, but what a bulky flacon! That doesn't fit for me – but maybe for Lalique's marketing people. The massive appearance pretends what is missing in there.

Does Lalique have success with it? I have already seen bargains. Presumably, most buyers would prefer something more gaudy, and so shop assistants will have to work a little for this perfume. When you finally own a bottle of it, you will have to grow into it first before Hommage à L'Homme finally will become your grey working day companion.
