For Man or the Truth, All Naked, by Yves Saint-Laurent!
Each man is unique, each man deserves the best and the new. The very first Yves Saint-Laurent Pour Homme perfume is proof of this, certainly much more than the others, whether in its communication, which spawned a lot of perfumed ink, or in its invigorating and warm composition.
Since the early 1960s, Yves Saint-Laurent’s creations have been recognized both by an audience of modern women with an androgynous look and by elegant but original men. By releasing Rive Gauche the same year as Pour Homme, Yves Saint-Laurent offers perfumes totally in the image of his couture and his creative spirit, to such an extent that he had first created Pour Homme just for his use. staff.
Pour Homme would therefore be the symbiosis in perfume of the colorful personality of Yves Saint-Laurent. Moreover, he will not offer Pour Homme for sale until three years after having created it, declaring in the advertisement that “For three years this eau de toilette has been mine, today it can be yours”. An advertisement that made a lot of noise, since Yves Saint-Laurent chose to be Pour Homme’s own ambassador by posing nude in a black and white universe!
Chic and shocking, the designer, however very shy, wanted with this image of Pour Homme to break the codes of perfumery by giving the image of a man without artifice, raw and above all natural. Needless to say, this approach was not understood by everyone in the 1970s! Anyway, it made the sales of Pour Homme a success …
“Yves Saint Laurent reveals himself in his simplicity and his truth exposing his soul more than his body. I am, I exist, but all you have to do is look… I have nothing but me to offer ”Maison Yves Saint-Laurent, about Pour Homme.
When aromatic elegance meets woody tenderness: this is Pour Homme
Pour Homme wants to be the perfumed alchemy of a man who goes straight to the essential, who displays his “naked” beauty. Quite naturally, the Pour Homme bottle is beautifully sober while displaying an imposing glass cube reminiscent of the masculinity of the perfume. The black cabochon of course refers to the “father of the fragrance”, of which black is the favorite color.
Pour Homme opens with notes playing with their aromatic and citrus tones to sharpen our senses. Bergamot, petitgrain and lemon thus rub shoulders with a sweet and powerful lavender. At the heart of marjoram and rosemary, a pretty rosewood will come together which will nevertheless be pricked with lively carnations and geranium. Finally, the nervous and woody vetiver and cedar will combine for the most beautiful and warmth with woods burning with sensuality such as patchouli, sandalwood, musk or tonka bean.
“HOMME L’Eau de Toilette Pour Homme displays an offbeat sincerity, a form of desire for truth, a quest for the being of beauty and an unveiling in modesty. »Y ves Saint-Laurent about Pour Homme.
