Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Lalique Pour Homme Faune

Leave a comment

BimgLalique Le Faune Pour Homme 75ml EDPWHAT I SMELL:  Faune’s opening is sweet with a sugared bergamot and lavender in addition to a minty green, almost toothpaste freshness.  There’s also a light spice, mixed with the soapy lavender.  The projection is big and bright and it sparkles with a beautiful sweetened herbal radiance.  As the perfume develops, the brightness calms and becomes dryer and more woody.  Still radiant, the early sparkles retires to a classic patchouli and lavender, with hints of lightly creamed vanilla.

Top notes are coriander, lavender, mandarin orange, juniper and bergamot; middle notes are pepper, anise and geranium; base notes are sandalwood, amber, patchouli, musk, vanilla, oakmoss and cedar.

WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  A well-groomed 1920’s mobster…looking good and smelling good.

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE FAUNE:  jaunty, fresh, approachable

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FAUNENone to be found, except for comments on Fragrantica.

BOTTOM LINE:  Faune is a no-nonsense, easy to wear, clean and fresh perfume for men that could be worn on any occasion.  It’s light enough to wear to work, but it would also work well for a night on the town.  Faune is perfect when you don’t want to overthink what your perfume choice of the day should be.
