Excerpt: this is a mainstay in my collection. I have two bottles, becuz the last time I ran out of the one, I had, and went online, shopping for another 3oz bottle, the price was so out of hand, I had to wait forever for it to come back down...add to that, I couldnt find this at the independent fragrance retailer in my neck of the woods. This is VERY hard to find, and when you do find it on line, its never very affordable.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: Let's dive right into it. The opening of this fragrance is a warm and sweet scent mixed with peppery aroma and slightly smokiness. The vanilla here has almost a boozy smell at the start but this boozy scent faded away really quick. As time goes by the scent become sweeter and darker and beautiful iris note gave it a little powdery feeling. The powdery feeling is not as strong as Dior Homme or even Dior Homme Intense for example, but it's there and you can feel it.
Summary: Intoxicating. The juice in my sample is dark brown. Not purple like the bottles.... weird. This stuff is very sexy. Smooth. Powdery. To me it's useless to try to point out specific notes, since the notes are very interwoven. It contains quite a bit of florals, not only iris. I get a fruity vibe. The vanilla is slightly boozy. Sounds like a feminine fragrance, right? Well, it carefully walks the line of unisex. Slightly tipping to the masculine side.
Summary: Sulty and dominant What can i say? I totally hook up on the review of my dear friend EricRico! A truly great soft'n silky sophisticated scent for the romantic moments in your life. I find it very well balanced and the vanilla is amazingly well blended with the iris and tonka!! Its strong but soft at the same time and that is impressive I feel cozy when i wear arpege pH and i think this is S3X in a bottle!
Summary: Incredible fragrance! Bold, fascinating, a signature scent for social occasions or evenings out on the town. Opens peppery and sweet then glides into a warm, smoky heart that manages to merge masculine florals and intense spices ( I get both nutmeg and clove). Base softens further to a breathable orange blossom, vanilla, and pronounced patchouli with less smoke. Really fun but dignified! Lasts 7+ hours on skin and clothes.
Summary: That's a very refined and elegant scent that lasts for many hours. Sweet but not overpowering, the iris and patchouli notes gives it a sweet powderiness feel. Suitable for colder days. Worth it.
Summary: Olivier Pescheux has created a gem with this offering! The opening is a wonderful combination (to my nose) of fresh-ground pink pepper and nice neroli (personally, I don't think too much) and fresh-squeezed mandarin juice and some orange rind. Awesome! I absolutely love the top notes here - fantastic, masculine and rich but segueing into a powdery iris within a few minutes on the skin (this is a very particular scent in "where" you spray it.
Summary: Arpège pour homme is one of the many fragrance-related disappointments I have experienced in the past years. Once again, this fragrance contains many of my favourite notes. When I tried it for the very first time, I was so impressed with APH, I almost bought a bottle on the spot (fortunately, I knew that one of the first rules of perfume shopping is that impulse buying is a definite no-no). On my wrist, APH had that vanilla/tonka quality I always look for in a fragrance.
