I love a manly fragrance! I mean, the fruity, sporty ones are nice, but you know the real old-school  smelling fragrances on a man? Yeah those are always my best!

Since I featured the new YSL Black Opium for the ladies today, I wanted to share with you another YSL olfactory gem, this time for the guys!



It’s not a new launch (and there’s even an Intense version out already), but I still think it’s a scent worth checking out! Especially when making those Christmas lists for the men in your lives this holiday season.

Although this fragrance is not totally unique, it’s very masculine and elegant with all the right notes to make it a completely luxurious fragrance.

I particularly like the heart. It’s gorgeous and intoxicating. I wouldn’t mind smelling it all day!

YSL L’HOMME opens with top notes of Cedarwood, Madagascar White Pepper and Ozone to give it both a sparkling a luminous scent.

At the heart, floral and spicy notes of Chinese Ginger, Violet Leaves and Basil Flowers contrast with the fresh top notes to give in an intoxicating, zesty bite.

And at the base, Haitian Vetiver, Tonka Beans and Cedarwood highlight it’s magnetic masculine profile.

Such a gorgeous men’s scent and if you’re into manly-man fragrances that smell like a million bucks, then I reckon you’ll love this one!

Get it for R1 180 for 100ml bottle.
