Light, summery colognes are often an elusive addition to a man’s fragrance collection. When we think of cologne, minds wander to ouds, Tuscan leathers and other warm aromas which sees L’Homme Cologne Bleue by Yves Saint Laurent challenge the perception of masculine fragrances.
Cologne Bleue is the latest addition to the sizeable L’Homme collection on offer by YSL. It is a softer, lighter alternative to the L’Homme original. Where the original opts for a woody, earthen-spice driven tone, Cologne Bleue’s scent is one of finer, livelier aromas.
The cologne is cool – in scent and in style. L’Homme Cologne Bleue is dominated by themes of the aquatic. Both the application and the scent of the fragrance are likened to a refreshing dip in the pool. The main aquatic note is accentuated by a soft yet definite citrusy tone; grapefruit and blood orange are immediately brought to mind. However, L’Homme Cologne Bleue’s airiness is grounded by black pepper and sandalwood, paying homage to its less-seasonal forefather.
Summertime Australia is a harsh climate, and finding the appropriate scent to accommodate for such a climate can be difficult. But L’Homme Cologne Bleue suits the occasion perfectly – long sunny days, lounging around the pool, welcoming a gentle breeze. For those limited days, you are at work, L’Homme Cologne Bleue offers the opportunity to throw your linen blazer over your shoulder and with the afternoon sun still lingering in the sky, you’ll make it home long before night.
L’Homme Cologne Bleue is a summer sensation. It’s available now on the Yves Saint Laurent website.
