Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui (fragrance review)

pour luiI remember when I would see my brothers head out to their high school and my Mom would spray a little bit of fragrance on them as they would leave the house. My brothers weren’t really keen on wearing colognes, but they really took well with one particular scent: O de la R Pour Lui’s top notes include juniper berries, lavender, galbanum, basil, caraway, sage, anise and bergamot. I wouldn’t use Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui for a summery day, as the top notes are extremely overpowering, in particular the lavender, sage and bergamot. Middle notes in this cologne include cyclamen, carnation, patchouli, cinnamon, vetiver, cedar and geranium, very much on the floral side.

Base notes in this scent include a very strong sense of leather, sandalwood, musk and oakmoss. Contrary to what my brothers used to wear Pour Lui for (school), I have found myself most comfortable using Oscar de la Renta (in general, and Pour Lui in particular) at night. It’s a bit like La Nuit De L’Homme by Yves St. Laurent. An excellent scent at night, even if it was launched almost 30 years ago. Wow, time goes by fast!
