Pour Un Homme De Caron Sport description
Caron Pour Un Homme Sport is a powerful, crisp, and sweet green scent with quite a bit of aromatic attitude pumping through it.
A trio of lavender absolute, nutmeg, and ginger leap off the cap to dazzle you with their sharp, energetic facets out in full force. If you love these spices, the opening to Caron Pour Un Homme Sport will be a homecoming for you. These aromatics are truly impressive: only the lavender is a top note, and the rest pop up from Pour Un Homme Sports’ eager, restless heart.
It has only after a few minutes that you realize there is also a dash of polite green mandarin, grapefruit, and lemony verbena at the start of this fragrance. Their usually upfront and zesty demeanor dissolves completely into the ginger note, and their top note energy instead gets funneled into making the lavender and ginger brighter at the start.
Another cool feature of this fragrance is how the nutmeg makes its appearance. Its rustic sweetness is amplified to the level of warm, cinnamon bun sugar infused with grapefruit zest. Somehow the citrus and spice create an initial scent impression of a very sweet, slightly spicy citrus with a slight, sensual tingle you experience in the back of your throat. Imagine the first bite from a delectable fruit tart made in a top-tier bakery, and you are close.
The only note left in the heart that does not rush the stage at the beginning is a brisk cedar note that diffuses some of the nutmeg’s intriguing sweetness. The serene and arid qualities in cedar are well-placed for proper balance after the enthusiastic opening rush of throat-tickling spice.
The dry down features a different take on the citrusy sweet theme, with Siamese benzoin and tonka beans replacing the acidity from the top. Instead of a crisp, one-two punch of ginger and nutmeg, the base notes wrap the foundation in a soft, sheer blanket of rich, smoky vanilla and amber tones. The hidden gourmand treats in Caron Pour un Homme Sport is this transition from super-sweet spice to moist, rich, roasted vanilla.
There is also a dash of white musk and ambergris in the base, but again placed for balance and brightness rather than being standout notes. They lighten the weight of the resinous spices and allow them to turn up their vanilla-infused temptation levels.
