Guerlain Homme by Guerlain for Men
2.7 oz After Shave Pour
The perfume reveals itself in three horizontal beats. You can listen to it as you would to a musical stave where the notes form chords and respond to one another. To begin with, the Mojito chord resonates with persistent freshness and determination. A zest of limette, slightly bitter and pungent; a few peppermint leaves, shaved to reveal their strong herbaceous aroma; a generous measure of real Jamaican rum.
The second chrod, Fresh Floral, is sophisticated: the leaves and petals of pelargonium, a sort of geranium, rings a green mentholated note to echo the Mojito; and green tea adds its rather harsh, aromatic accents, bitter in a manly way.
The third facet, Green Woody, combines the elegant firmness of cedar with the savage vibration of a vetiver pulled fresh from the earth. You can also recognize the distinctive mark of Jean Paul Guerlain. By suggesting the addition of rhubarb, he introduces bitterness and a bite which further echoes the freshness of the top notes.
