Though they are in the same line, each L'Homme Idéal fragrance has an entirely different composition. This eau de parfum in particular starts off with a bitter and citrus head and finishes sweet and powdery. [00:57] Part 1: Composition Firstly, this fragrance's head is very intense, with bitter citrus elements of bergamot and blood orange. Also faintly present are aromatic and herbal rosemary, thyme, and black pepper. The heart brings a light touch of rose and an almond note reminiscent of amaretto. Besides this, there is sweet and woody frankincense. Finally, the base is quite intense and invigorating: tonka bean, sandalwood, and birch tar. Because of this, the base is predominantly sweet and powdery. [02:48] Part 2: Seasonality Because of the intensity and spiciness of this and other L'Homme Idéal fragrances, they are first and foremost winter fragrances. This eau de parfum's woody oriental amber scent is most reminiscent of the festive season. During the hotter seasons, this would generally be too cloying to wear, also true for L'Homme Idéal Intense. [3:42] Part 3: Wake & Strength L'Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum leaves an intense sillage and has strong projection. Therefore, great care is required to avoid applying this fragrance too heavily. The longevity of this fragrance is also quite powerful, easily lasting from morning into evening, or even the next day. [4:37] Part 4: 3rd Party Feedback This is a very polarizing fragrance, with an interesting and contemporary twist on the Oriental fragrance family. Some wearers of the fragrance find it overly synthetic in the head, or rubbery. Women's assessments of the scent place it as either alluring or overly, cloyingly intense. Fans of this fragrance find it intense, invigorating, and immersive. [05:43] Part 5: Impressions This fragrance's spicy, leathery character makes it contemporary yet mature, suited to men in their 30s. It is a good fit for evening formal functions and, if your date is well-disposed to the scent, romantic occasions. Although Guerlain is traditionally known for its unisex fragrance, L'Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum is very masculine. [7:27] Part 6: Presentation This eau de parfum has a very contemporary bottle and package design, befitting its scent. The bottle has a geometric, bezeled design and is topped with a rubber knurled cap. The atomizer gives a very light mist, appropriate for the fragrance's intensity. The box artwork features a black-and-white design that resembles a QR code, but is actually a stylized tagline. It reads "No Need To L'Homme Idéal Anymore, Have Your Fragrance." This fragrance is rather pricey, since Guerlain is a highly prestigious house. Each 50ml/1.6 oz bottle is around 60 Euros, or 70-80 USD. [09:05] Part 7: Conclusion This is an extremely distinctive, polarizing, and bold scent and, certainly, unexpectedly contemporary, coming from a venerable traditional perfume house. L'Homme Ideal Eau de Parfum certainly has enough character to be your favorite scent. Before you buy it, be sure to test it, in order to find out if it's for you. Regarding 2018's L'Homme Idéal Intense, it is similar to the Eau de Parfum. It distinguishes itself with cardamom and chili in the head, labdanum in the heart, and a vanilla and patchoulli base.

So how was with longevity and projection of Ideal L'Intense? Some people stated, that it's not strong at all.

Hi Artyom, I talk about intense at around 09:40 before concluding the video. However, I don't think I mentioned performance as I just tested it for composition. Nevertheless, if memory serves, I don't think the Intense flanker projected or lasted quite as long as the EDP and was actually quite similar aside from the cardamom and chili in the head notes. Meanwhile, the difference between the EDT and EDP is very noticeable. Overall, I'd say that the EDP is the better flanker with everything taken into account. Best, CP

How about lhomme ideal edt? Do you think it can be an office scent during summer spring months?

You're very welcome - and it's great to meet you! Yes, L'Homme Idéal Cologne would be an excellent choice for tropical countries. Best, CP

Thanks sir. I'm new to your channel. I live in a tropical country. May lhomme ideal cologne would be more suited. Thanks for a quick response

Hi Jason, Although I haven't fully reviewed it, I have tried it. I'd say it's more a fall/winter fragrance that should also be fine during the early spring. However, it's a little too heavy for the spring in my opinion. Maybe you could wear it at the office in those seasons instead? Best, CP
