APOM Pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

APOM, which stands for A Part of Me, is one of those “I just got out of the shower” scents. To me, it reminds me of the freshness associated with bathing and the wonderfully clean feeling that you have afterwards.  So given that, what exactly does APOM smell like?  The listed ingredients are simple, orange flower, amber and cedar wood.  This to me is a pretty linear scent; it doesn’t change much and the orange flower is the dominating note.  The amber does warm the scent and tone down the orange flower a bit, but it ultimately remains in the background.  This to me is a safe fragrance;  clean and fresh, but not very interesting.  For those of you who like fresh; this would be a great fragrance.  Me, I like it a little dirty and will stick with my Absolue Pour le Soir.

From the Maison Francis Kurkdjian website:

APOM (A Part Of Me), a bit of oneself that one leaves on others. A relationship inspired from the beauty of the Orient: movement of people, flavors, colors and scents rediscovered from Lebanon. A combination of softness and strength.
