Celebrating 80 Years of Caron Pour Un Homme

 

o.26139

Before 1934, there wasn’t a fragrance made exclusively for men. If men wanted to smell nice when they went out, they would wear fresh lavender water.

Eighty years ago, The House of Caron released Pour Un Homme, a discrete, unique and unmistakable fragrance made from lavender extract, created by Ernest Daltroff. Worn by all men alike, from James Dean to Tom Ford and of course not forgetting Hedi Slimane, Saint Laurent Paris’s Creative Director, the simple elegance of lavender is full of poise and refinement.

A beautiful aromatic fragrance that is not to complicated. The finest lavender oils from the Alps are blended to create this unmistakable fragrance, slightly warmed with hints of vanilla and amber; it really is intoxicating.

To celebrate Pour Un Homme’s 80th anniversary, The House of Caron have created a Limited Edition Collector’s Box. Each bottle is set in deeply engraved silver and topped with a stopper covered in pearl grey shagreen. Each comes with a certificate of authenticity, and all are numbered and signed; this really is for the most discerning of fragrance connoisseurs.

Although this fragrance is an original men’s fragrance, it’s nowadays not exclusivly for men anymore. Its stolen by many women. Created from the finest lavender and having been on the shelves for 80 years, It’s still a beautiful timeless fragrance. Classic and (still) modern at the same time.  But this is perhaps not something that will appeal to everyone, or that everyone will be able to pull off. Even so, it could be worth stepping out of your comfort zone this once just to give it a try, this beautiful heritage…

The use of a very manly (a beard, a black suit, as well as the running stance, are all traits stereotypical to the male gender) athlete is the highlight of this ad. French big, strong and masculair rugby player Sébastien Chabal, photographed by Giampaolo Vimercati, is the new face of Pour un Homme Eau de Toilette.
