Continuing my celebration of all things Caron…
This might appear at first sight to be something of an odd selection, for The Dandy normally picks perfumes that are equally suitable for all sexes.
Well, I think Caron’s Pour Un Homme is just so for just about everybody and, remarkably, most so in the diluted, airy almost-not-there-after-an-hour-or-so “After Shave” formulation.
Here the picturesque impressionist landscape of lavender which the lotion paints so perfectly, is softened and blurred beautifully around the edges by a delicate, near diaphanous almond-edged vanilla.
Exquisite, but ephemeral… it is gone all too quickly, though to my mind this makes a fine fragrance for the morning, refreshing reapplications in the heat, or even when heading off to sleep.
Delicious almond creme brulee, devoured in the sunshine of a lavender field.
Don’t forget, you can still vote for what The Dandy will be wearing Monday over at The Hit Parade, and there’s more to come from Caron this weekend.
