“A Gentleman Tries to Go to a Night Club ”
CARON : Le 3e Homme
by Kamei (1985)
CARON made 3 male scents: Pour un Homme (1934), Yatagan (1978), then this. Floral fougère, with sweaty spices to make it fitting for olfactory nightmare the 80s male powerhouses.
This is dense and heavy. Incense, leather, cocoa; styrax; then after 1 hour it turns and goes in a sweaty cumin direction, sparks of pungent coriander. An aromatic woody powerbomb; quite loud. It's got some cucumber-y oceanic calone, too, but still feels mostly classical.
