Monsieur Balmain by Balmain Review
Description
The fame of Monsieur Balmain led to subsequent attempts to recapture its magic. As expected, this one falls short, although it is not without its merits. Monsieur Balmain sits close to the skin, but then stays longer than most similar scents. If you need to make your summer extra fresh, then the fragrance delivers with its tangy accords. This is also still very wearable even in the absence of the sun.

Positives
We find the opening to be bright and light
There is an extra measure of freshness in the middle of its development
Especially nice during the summer
Lasts longer than other summer fragrances
Negatives
This reformulation fails to maintain the intensity that made the original memorable
Faint on the skin for us

There has been a couple of fragrances taking the name Monsieur Balmain, all released under the house Balmain. This one we’re tackling was released in 1990, and was signed by Calice Becker. Its opening reveals bergamot, mint, bitter orange and lemon, while the heart has ginger, rose, caraway, rosemary, thyme, pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and moss. Meanwhile, the base notes include clary sage, sandalwood, vetiver, amber and musk.
