Fragrance Friday- Yves Saint Laurent ‘L’Homme’ Cologne Gingembre

Let me start this post off with a personal anecdote, one that tells the tale of a man who wouldn’t give a second thought to scent, at all. A man that wouldn’t bother with cologne, until he met a certain girl that stole his heart and changed his scent-less ways forever. Yes, I am talking about my boyfriend.

When I first met him seven years ago, he possessed an aversion to colognes, going so far as to claiming that he was allergic. It wasn’t until I started pushing the issue that he finally started wearing it, and yes, enjoying it. Truly, there is nothing I love more in this world than getting up on my tippy toes, giving my lug of a man a hug, and burying my head in his neck and taking a deep whiff of whatever delicious concoction he is wearing that day. Makes me a little bit crazy, it does.

This post is all about my new discovery for him, a new edition of a favorite (of his and mine), Yves St Laurent’s L’Homme’s Cologne Gingembre. Classified as a fresh scent with a spicy ginger backdrop, it’s no wonder this scent always has me leaning in for a second whiff. Its lighter, fresher feel, as compared to the original L’Homme, makes it perfect for the warmer spring and summer season.

Gingembre opens with a fresh burst of citrusy Calabrian bergamot and sparkling aquatic accords, which immediately fade and give way to the spicy roots of the scent: a blend of Chinese ginger, white pepper, and basil. At its heart, L’Homme Cologne Gingembre is a warm, sexy wood, complete with cedar, oak moss, vetiver, and musk.

The Mr. has been spritzing this on these hot summer months, much to my delight. Yves St Laurent L’Homme’s Cologne Gingembre is a scent that any person would want to get closer to, male or female. Look for this brand new edition, exclusively at Nordstrom.
