Maxim’s pour Homme by Maxim’s Review
Maxim’s Pour Homme may come from the most unlikely of fragrance manufacturers, but we are thoroughly smitten by the sophistication and quality of the scent. This to us makes it presence known immediately, but that is not off-putting. The aromatic opening made up of florals and citrus becomes more masculine with the introduction of woods, musk and leather. There seems to be a whiff of sugary by the middle that feels out of place, but in hindsight adds more to anticipate with every spray.
We think that this is a well-executed scent
Has hints of sweetness by the heart because of the fruits but still is sophisticated
Has average sillage and performance
Feels dated somehow
Not for everyone because it can overwhelm, although not as much as its contemporaries
Save Big At:
A blast from the not-so-long past, Maxim’s Pour Homme is a loud yet elegant fragrance first introduced in 1988. Dominique Ropion was commissioned by the Parisian restaurant Maxim’s to work on Pour Homme, as well as a handful of its other fragrances. The scent boasts of clary sage, lavender, bergamot, carnation and lemon for the opening, while it has jasmine, clove, rose, sandalwood, amber and cedar for the heart. The base features musk, patchouli, leather, oakmoss and vanilla. It was made available as an eau de toilette in 50 ml.
