L'homme Cologne by Yves Saint Laurent, L'homme is a classic men’s cologne . The top note is a blend of freshness and spice, with the citrus scents of lemon and bergamot adding a brightness to the warm spice of ginger. The middle notes are decidedly peppery, with the accompaniment of basil and violet leaf. Instead of ending on a sharp note, however, the final scents of this fragrance are soothing yet masculine and include tonka bean, Tahitian vetiver and the woody touch of cedar. This cologne offers moderate longevity and soft to moderate sillage.
