Guerlain L'Homme Ideal Cologne Eau De Toilette by Guerlain Fragrance Review

The idea of the "Ideal Man" has been explored and reprised over and over again in popular culture... but does the ideal man actually exist? Well, in 2014, French perfumers Guerlain suggested he did not, but his fragrance DID; at least, that was the marketing angle Guerlain wanted us to believe when launching their masculine scent "L'Homme Ideal". Then, in 2015, they swiftly followed up with l'Homme Ideal Cologne... a new take on the original.

A fresh, zesty twist on Guerlain's 2014's triumph, L’Homme Ideal, the new Cologne version abandons the glorious praline and sweet-tobacco facets of its older sibling and instead infuses the composition with a good dose of grapefruit... its bittersweet citrus tang steers it away from the comforting ombré of sensual autumnal warmth and instead, sets a course for crisp and sheer summer briskness.

From the bottle, the bright pamplemousse flight and green vetiver notes produce a fleeting cypressy vibe, which lends a sense of Mediterranean sun. The signature heart of almond and neroli shares a welcome, familiar footprint with its wonderful older brother. All in all, l'Homme Ideal Cologne is an excellent all-rounder for daytime and the summer months. 

Make it a priority!
