Even today, Guerlain decides to give us a new portrait of L’Homme Idéal . Its star perfume reinvents itself and becomes L’Homme Idéal Extrême.
L’Homme Idéal Extrême by Guerlain, a spicy and woody essence
L’Homme Idéal Extrême takes the DNA of its predecessors and transforms its cult scent into a more spicy and woody edition. Here, Thierry Wasser, the brand perfumer, has decided to reinvent the smell of almonds, a major ingredient in the entire L’Homme Idéal saga, since its release in 2014. Always very sensual, this raw material becomes more fiery and indomitable than ever , especially in contact with spices and warm tobacco. It all starts with very contrasting top notes. L’Homme Idéal Extrême first combines the freshness of bergamot with the glow of pink pepper. Then, its heart contains cinnamon, a very lively and delicious spice, accompanied for the occasion by a juicy plum to perfection. The heliotrope brings a more elegant floral breath to the whole. Finally,
The Extreme Ideal Man, the portrait of a fiery and self-confident man
The Extreme Ideal Man is not the symbol of a particular man, but rather addresses the part of ideal contained in each of us. It does not paint a clearly defined portrait of the man, but aims to highlight the best qualities of each. To get a better idea of his personality, Guerlain has even designed a bottle in his image. L’Homme Idéal Extrême is presented to us in a square bottle of imposing stature. Here, this bottle is the pledge of all the masculine charisma. Its beveled stops also give it greater elegance. Then, did you notice these new red details? They echo the “Extreme” and passionate side of the new Guerlain man. This color is particularly prominent on the label of this perfume, as well as on its cap. Besides, this cylindrical cabochon is now decorated with a guilloché motif, borrowed from the world of watchmaking. Undeniably, L’Homme Idéal Extrême is also a very elegant person. For more modernity, a chrome ring is invited at its collar. If “L’Homme Idéal Extrême is a myth, its fragrance is a reality”. You can choose from this essence in two different capacities, 50 or 100 ml.
What is the definition of the ideal man? According to men and women, in general, he must be “smart, good-looking and strong”! It is therefore on the basis of these three criteria that Guerlain developed a fragrance called L’Homme Idéal, in 2014. Today, this juice is reinventing itself and becomes The Extreme Ideal Man. Following on from L’Homme Idéal Cologne, L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum, L’Homme Idéal Sport and L’Homme Idéal Intense, this essence completely reinvents the scent of almonds. So how is this new juice here extreme? Let’s see in more detail what it is about its composition.
Almond, a central ingredient in The Ideal Extreme Man
L’Homme Idéal Extreme revolves mainly around almonds, which occupy the heart of his recipe. But did you know: almond essential oil is never used in perfumery. In reality, the scent of this ingredient is completely reconstituted in the laboratory, by the assembly of other smells. Here, L’Homme Idéal Extrême is the result of a mixture of coumarin, heliotropin and benzyl alcohol. If Guerlain chooses to work with almonds, it is quite simply because it is a very round, warm and comforting scent, but also endowed with multiple reliefs. Here, the almond reveals all its facets, sometimes more powdery, more toasted or more fruity.
The highly contrasting top notes of L’Homme Idéal Extrême
L’Homme Idéal Extrême by Guerlain is not lacking in temperament and this is evident from its top notes. Indeed, its particularly energizing and incisive start mixes two ingredients that everything opposes. On the one hand, L’Homme Idéal Extrême relies on the extreme freshness of bergamot, a fruit made from the cross between lemon and sour orange. On the other hand, L’Homme Idéal Extrême is immediately heated with pink pepper, for a much more incandescent finish. This explosion of flavors is also immediately relayed by another spicy raw material: cinnamon. At the heart of this perfume, it mingles with a gourmet scent of plum, the ideal ingredient to make our mouths water, while heliotrope brings a more floral and elegant breath to this composition.
The sensual and woody base of Guerlain
Finally, to perfect its recipe , Guerlain chooses to complete its composition with a more intense masculinity. Its trail is particularly woody, containing patchouli and cedar. In addition, it must be recognized that these two woods greatly contribute to improving the persistence of this fragrance. An intense note of leather reveals the more animal and sensual aspect of this essence. Finally, for more originality, L’Homme Idéal Extrême is adorned with tobacco, an element with a warm charisma.
In general, L’Homme Idéal Extrême is an “oriental woody fragrance that will allow you to remain an extremely talented man, for everything “.
