Escada Pour Homme

By Scentzilla!

Escada pour has listed some items at sale price, though it’s kind of unoffficial since there’s no actual sale page yet. Most of the discounted fragrances are out of stock already, but they’ve still got Escada Pour Homme at a great price! $12! I bought two! (Hoarding, always hoarding. If only Chaucer had known a perfume addict: his tales might have been framed a little differently.)

Escada Pour Homme is a sweet woody fragrance, with a boozy aftertaste. It opens with a dry, slightly musky and woody aroma that feels rather boxy, or rigid, in construct. The brief flash of citrus at the top especially lends to this feeling. But the opening gives way to appealingly herbal lilts, with a warm masculine drydown that leaves the mouth watering and begging for a snifter raised to the lips. The heart and base notes also smell woody, even a tad spicy, while the cognac intonatations splash them into a cozy, cocktail sipping buzz.

I rarely suggest any fragrance should be worn exclusively by one gender, but I’m inclined to do so in this instance. The one time I wore it on myself in public, I kept looking around for the sexy guy wearing that delicious fragrance. Oh crap. The sexy guy was me every time. Eeeek.

At least I can definitively testify to its great sillage.

Escada Pour Homme would make a fun birthday gift for loved menfolk, though I specifically would recommend it to my male readers who think they’d enjoy wearing a little vanilla-laced aged cognac. And, sexy little Escada Pour Homme does pair up nicely with a Cognac Coupling cocktail in the evening if you decide you’re sick of only smelling tasty.

I believe Escada Pour Homme may have been discontinued? Although I’m not entirely sure about it, Pour Homme’s clearance price at Sephora seems to indicate that it may well be a goner, indeed.

    What a great review. It’s really descriptive. I want to try this. I wish Sephora had a sale page. It’d be easier to get to the goods! Have a good day.

    Don’t know if it is discontinued, but they had Bandit at half price in the store just because they weren’t going to carry it any more, so it isn’t necessarily a harbinger of doom.

    Sephora with its sneaky Not Really Sales! How did I miss this one? I could have gotten it “for DH”. I did get L’instant Noel, Orange Magnifica and Bandit though…Greedy? Not me!. :-)

    Trina, so adorable! Awww. But your baby lemming is all liquored up!

    Cait, I wish they’d even list them under the keyword “sale.” You have to select “fragrance” then list all sorted by price right now to find them.

    Robin, I haven’t heard anything solid, just rumor, and well - you know how that goes. It’s sometimes right, sometimes just nuts. I picked up the Bandit, too, though :)

    Marina, I picked those up, as well! I wasn’t enamored enough of the L’Instant Millesime to buy it full price, but for that discounted price I totally wanted it! I think that Kenzo Air was discounted, too, but who cares about that one even at a clearance price? Well, I guess folks would care, just not me ;P
