Celebrating 80 Years of Caron Pour Un Homme



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.

Top Notes: Lavender
Heart Notes: Lavender, Vanilla
Base Notes: Amber, Musk

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.


The Limited Edition Collector’s Box, priced at £1,000

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…

Come into the world of The House of Caron





Turning boys into men since 1934. For gentlemen only, Caron Pour un Homme

Caron is HOT! Maison Caron, founded by Ernest Daltroff in 1904, created many beautiful precious perfumes. Think of Proivre, Tabac Blond, Infini, Fleurs de Rocaille, and for men: Pour un Homme.

Caron Pour un Homme is a timeless and a classical fragrance for elegant and confident men. This masculine fragrance blends natural and tantalizing notes. Its greenish design inspires peaceful emotions and calm feelings. Since 1934 Caron Pour un Homme has stood the test of time and became an iconic and legendary scent among others. Pour un Homme has successfully succeeded to capture attention of even the most pretentious wearers.

Pour un Homme has always refused to succumb to the dictates of fashion and shows of pretence. While the world around it changes, the power of seduction of Pour un Homme remains a stable value.


Authenticity and refinement abound in this fragrance with its inimitable harmonies that bespeak the finest natural lavender groves of the Haute Provence, combined with vanilla, lending it a naturally fresh sophistication. Pour un Homme comes encased in a no-frills, unpretentious bottle, displaying great purity of line and masculinity.

The nose behind Caron Pour un Homme is famous perfumer Ernest Daltroff. Pour un Homme blends the main ingredients lavender and vanilla, however, the composition also contains sensual notes of bergamot, lemon, rosemary, Tonka bean, cedar, rose, sage, rosewood, oak moss and musk.
