This is an aromatic leather fragrance for gentleman that made its debut back in 1978. Van Cleef and Arpels has battled its way through decade upon decade of trend-driven and fad-conscious fragrance companies who came and went and fizzled out and stayed for good. The whole time, this company is one of the quiet ones that managed to stay steadily relevant despite bribe-inspired hit pieces in magazines and trends that changed like the tides. Van Cleef & Arpels Por Homme stuck with what worked: The ever intriguing and indistinguishably masculine aroma of that is leather. The price has always remained within reach of most, and the note profile distinct, classic, and uniquely simplistic enough to stand the test of the always-changing, fickle world of high fashion and fragrance.
