    OH finally! I thought it was a blip in our builds. It appeared on there at the end of last year, then disappeared on the next build.
    Notes list make it sound like YSL Elle/anyrandomfemininedesignerlaunch though.

      But the color makes it sound like anyrandommasculinedesignerlaunch ;-)

        True, I thought this would be a nondescript sporty/aquatic. But I have to say the bottle is quite purdy.

    Wow, they catched me Robin! Wonderful bottle!!! I like blue too much! And that degradee blue is so cool! Sometimes market games really works.

    • Robin says:

      The blue down the atomizer plastic thingie is really nice, so as much as I’m sick of sporty blue men’s fragrances, gotta agree.

      • moore says:

        I haven’t seen it as a sport flanker to the original L’Homme. Its notes doesn’t seen to be sporty. But I’m sick of these too!! It’s like a vicious circle that never ends and paralizes or prune a great part of creativiness in masculine perfumery. Such a pitty.

    Millepied? Isn’t it odd that a dancer’s name is “a thousand feet”?

    That’s Natalie Portman’s boyfriend.

    I want to see the ad. ;)

    I know many people thing the original L’Homme is a boring and cliche mainstream fragrance, but I really liked it. To me, it smells classy and it’s one of those fragrances I bought once, but def would pick it up again now that I haven’t been wearing it for about 6 months. All the flankers thus far have not impressed me however, but curious to give this one a try nonetheless.
