Soapy Fougère
The Pour Homme is a very well-made, modern fougère from a small, new perfume house. That alone is a beautiful story!

The opening is a good indication of where things are going to go. It smells like a spicy curd soap due to the aldehydes and the many herbs. The whole thing is rounded off by a very fresh citrus. This then fades as the fragrance progresses and the soapy tartness of the scent becomes more diverse. In the rather green drydown, it remains "gentle" in this way, it has no rough edges, it simply smells clean, but in an absolutely good way. However, it is not a fabric softener fragrance, but rather a pleasant, classically masculine curd soap. However, the Pour Homme does not smell old-fashioned at all. Hats off!

A fougère is obviously well known as a typically masculine fragrance. This one is no different, even if it is a little softer overall than some others of its kind. Like many other fougères, it works well primarily in spring and fall, but I could also imagine wearing it in summer. If in doubt, even in winter with a few more sprays.

Longevity and sillage are average. But the price-performance ratio is good. However, it is now either temporarily or permanently no longer available directly from retailers.

Finally, a small note: I normally only give it an 8.5, let alone an 8, if I really enjoy wearing it. However, my relationship with Pour Homme is special in that I normally don't really like soapy fragrances. I therefore wear it less often and appreciate it more as an intelligent fragrance creation than because I really enjoy wearing it myself. Every now and then, however, I get a craving for it. I hope others can understand what I mean and maybe even know it too.

Definitely worth a try if you're not put off by soapy fragrances and you can still find a bottle somewhere.

My favorite from Grauton
Why not a review?

That's what I asked myself when I looked at my much too long statement. Then, here's some information spiced up with a bit of opinion.

Aldehydic-soapy with bright citrus, juniper, tart camphor finely blended, floral accents, galbanum. Soft, tarry base, camphor & vetiver clearly, but very smooth and without sharpness. Aftershave vibes.

Surprise on textile: totally soapy and clean, the beautiful details remain largely hidden under the limey soap at first and then appear over the course of the hours.

For me, this is definitely the brand's most successful fragrance to date, also because it is more masculine than the slightly more pleasing other shades of gray, but without smelling old.
I'm also absolutely delighted that someone in 2023 has the courage to make such an allusion to the 70s - and that it hits the mark.

Top and almost timeless!

Björn Müller
Berlin was different back then, a good 20 years ago, when Björn moved from Villingen-Schwenningen to Berlin, into the eternal adventure. Björn was cool. Really cool. Björn had his life ahead of him, had idealistic dreams, wanted to work in NGOs, and wanted to hit every rave in the city every weekend for the rest of his life. It had to be Pberg, what else, his parents bought him the apartment right away without being asked, so that the boy would have a base. And beyond that, it would be a good investment anyway.
Björn studied political science. After 8 years he had finished his master's degree and realized that the low-paying NGOs were not exactly waiting for him. So he had to add a bachelor's degree in computer science. Björn first landed in a NGO for development cooperation with Equatorial Guinea. But when he woke up one night after a 22-hour day and realized that he had completely lost track of his life, he switched to an IT consulting gig. That's where he eventually met Lisa. Lisa used to be cool, too, once had a mullet, once tried a few pills during her law studies, once even lived for half a year in a squatted house on Rigaer Straße. Lisa now works as a lawyer for family law. The Fulda city coat of arms, which she had engraved behind her left upper arm with a forged signature when she was 16, she now conceals again with tops with slightly longer sleeves.
Waldemar was born 5 years ago, then Wilma two years ago. The Kitaplatz for a possible third child has also been reserved for 3 years, but probably Björn and Lisa were too late for this. Waldemar initially grew up without digital influences, with wooden toys and gender-neutral children's books that were read to him every day. Wilma, however, is a somewhat louder child and screams nonstop. By chance, her parents discovered that only colorful videos on their smartphones can soothe her, This fact, of course, they use only very rarely and in extreme emergencies.
Björn is currently taking parental leave for Wilma before she will be acclimated to daycare in a few months.

Björn sports a 10-day beard, tousled blond hair and rides a cargo bike, as do his buddies, all of whom are also currently on parental leave. Björn wears day cream during the day and night cream at night and his favorite perfume is Pour Homme by Grauton. One of his buddies once gave him a bottle and it took over from Sauvage. The perfume smells like curd soap, lavender and rosemary. Björn loves curd soap. He doesn't care about the smell itself, but he loves what it stands for. For honest craftsmanship, authenticity and sustainability. He associates it with childhood, even though he himself grew up with squeaky pink shower gel with a synthetic raspberry smell. He would have liked to grow up with curd soap. And with rosemary and lavender in the garden, and with a grandpa who would have worn one of those old-timey scents. Björn once googled, they call these scents fougères. With an accent grave and without an accent aigu. Björn's grandpas unfortunately died too young and his one grandma got dementia early, with her he mainly associates the smell of her nursing home. Cheap coffee, chlorinated cleaning products and a smell of stale bread and urine.

Björn is here and there overwhelmed with his life. His parents are disappointed that he has not yet reached the executive floor of his company. Lisa, he thinks, would have Waldemar and especially Wilma much better under control, and his buddies all seem much happier and more enthusiastic in their roles as full-time dads. Not to mention the most modern developments, all of which you have to consider today if you want to be a politically correct person and be perceived as such...
And when it's time for daddy-child water gymnastics again and he reaches in the locker room once more for his sweater, which he had just put in the locker room, and smells it, the scent calms him down and reminds Björn that he gives his very best every day. His buddies probably don't think he's all that dumb either, when they're always asking him for tips on cloth diapers. Lisa is great without exceptions. And at least for his kids, he will be the very greatest until their puberty sets in anyway.

Fragrance, durability, sillage:
A wonderfully modern curd soap, perfumed with a great fougère composition. At the beginning, the fragrance actually seems a bit stale. However, while the curd soap always remains constant and constantly gives the impression as if you had just jumped out of grandma's bathtub, the fragrance itself becomes milder, softer and loses its knarzigkeit.
On my (usually quite grateful) skin I perceive the fragrance for well over 14 hours, on clothes even days later, but the fragrance is not too close to the body. A very pronounced sillage did not stand out in my tests the target audience, he is on just under a meter but excellent perceptible, but does not remain forever in the room. The fragrance is extremely suitable for everyday use and with him you will probably hardly ever be able to tick off.

Twilight of the gods
Ladies and gentlemen,
Dear Sirs,

may I present the highlight. That indescribably grandiose green, soapy, herbal fougere bomb from Germany....

Oh boy oh boy! Fougeres and that's right. Green, soapy... the whole range.

Reminiscent of Kouros only without the animalic. Reminiscent of PRpH with a powerful oomph and modern. Reminiscent of masculine Pluriel only in classic. Etc. Etc.
All the stops have been pulled out here.

Lavender, herbs and spices at the beginning. Then more lavender with wood and some florals. On the oakmoss, the absolute version. Performance is terrific. It doesn't fill any halls. But it is very perceptible.

Definitely not a clubbing fragrance. Rather something for the gentlemen's round in the garage with beer and salted pretzels.

My wife thinks it's great. I've even been approached at work.

But it's also suitable for the office, construction site or anywhere else. Rather something for men over 30. It would be out of place on younger people.

I can't stop raving about it. It really gets me. This is what a MEN'S fragrance should smell like. Not for boys and the cigarette brushes and mofo rocker.

It hits the mark without a lot of sweet talk. Contrary to the current zeitgeist.

Anyone who appreciates the fragrances mentioned above and is still looking for a modern yet classic interpretation will find what they are looking for here. This is not a contradiction in terms.

The inclined tine may test this one.

I am completely blown away by this masterpiece. Thank you Martin. Thank you for reading these lines.
