Description

I think that it could be unisex, but it errs much more on the masculine side of the spectrum if you ask me. Still, ladies, by all means, take this one out for a spin and see if it works for you. When To Wear It

Homme has excellent longevity and average sillage. While Homme is marketed to men I can see women who enjoy a spicy fragrance also enjoying it. Soon, a massive wave of red-hot cinnamon rolls in, accompanied by a brace of earthy vetiver and patchouli. As the fragrance dries down, a distinct note of creamy sandalwood begins to emerge, adding a lush, smooth texture to the fragrance and rounding out the harsh edges. There’s also an irissy tone almost reminiscent of the drydown of Dior Homme Parfum, though it’s faint, only serving to give the fragrance a lustrous lacquer.

I have nevertheless read all of the comments on this fragrance from the Lead Speakers with pleasure and am looking forward to a discussion below the comment :) However, if you are a lover of spices like myself, Costume National Homme Parfum might just be heaven for you. Master perfumers, with their great skill, create authentic works of artin each of the brand's collections, using high qualityingredients.

Cyber Garden EDP: a fresh, enveloping scent inspired by a futuristic garden where rare and unusual notes create a vibrant balance.

Homme is the fragrance of a man with impeccable taste, who prefers a neutral colour palette and loves being surrounded by unique objects, the pursuit of absolute quality and design. His innate elegance is never boasted and is the result of a refined attitude towards beauty, expressed in every facet of his essence. Homme is timeless elegance; a merino wool overcoat; a byword for sophistication. The eau de parfum opens with fresh top notes of bergamot, grapefruit and cardamom.

Costume National Homme Parfum is a scent I’ve fallen in love with ever since I bought it, and I’ve been wearing it almost constantly. Yesterday though I sampled this for the first time. Man, was I surprised! I really liked it, rom the fresh citrussy opening to the heartnotes where you are greeted by cloves and cinnamon. The cloves are clearly present but it's not as if you're dipped into a jar of cloves. They blend really well with the cinnamon actually. It's a very warm, spicy scent. The only thing I had some mixed feelings about was the base that revealed itself after 5 or 6 hours. Performance is absolute beastly. 2-3 sprays max. 1 if you're wearing it to the office. Longevity is 12-14 hours for me and usually lasts through two showers. It’s a very pleasant fragrance, but the spices might not be to everyone’s taste, so spray with caution. Value For Money First on the list would be the original Costume National Homme EDP. It’s still readily available, but usually goes for at or around the same price as the parfum on online discounters. So unless you really love the original (and some do indeed prefer it to the parfum) , I personally would opt for the parfum instead.

In a few words, Costume National Homme Parfum is: rich, smooth, spicy, creamy, woody, dark green, exotic, and festive. Ropion's creations are known for their exact olfactory balance and flawless composition. He is a daring perfectionist who takes risks to create masterpieces that stand out in the industry. His perfumes are like great architectural feats, balancing excessive doses of powerful ingredients with meticulously measured, subtler accords, until the composition holds up on its own. My initial impression stays, this is a wonderful perfume. Even for those that don't like cloves, like me, this can be perfectly accesible. The comparison to Comme des Garçons is one that I can understand, especially during the first few minutes. But this perfume is a lot softer and much less pungent than CDG, which was more medicinal and heavy. I find CNH more versatile and more crowd friendly. It kind of reminds me of the holidays, don't know why though, but it does.

If you want greater performance, you could always amp up the sprays, but I would recommend going easy on the trigger for this one, because… Projection & Sillage It is a pretty versatile fragrance which will do you good at the office (so long as you go easy on the trigger), semi-formal and formal occasions, casual hangouts, and maybe even romantic encounters, though I wouldn’t recommend it for a first date due to the polarizing nature of the spices. Similar Fragrances Dolce di Giorno by Italian niche brand Bois 1920 has often been called a “niche” version of Costume National Homme with a heavy dose of plum. Not having smelt that fragrance myself, I can’t really comment on that, but the parfum already smells “niche” to my nose, so I won’t be seeking it out.

One spray, and I feel surrounded by an incredible and magnetic aura!" - Elisa
