As a flanker to 2006’s Amor pour Homme, the woody spicy fragrance called Amor pour Homme Tentation arrived on the market in August 2008. A creation of 2 perfumers Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp, this fragrance was presented simultaneously with its feminine counterpart Amor Amor Tentation, as a more powerful version of Amor pour Homme. Regarding the presentation, the scent is enclosed in a bottle that uses the same shape from its predecessor, with a modification of the color scheme which is currently an interesting shade of pomegranate red, a definite “eye-catcher”.
Having a structure that preserves the classic olfactory pyramid with the top, heart and base notes, Amor pour Homme Tentation begins on a tart combination of mandarin orange and ginger. Then, as the scent evolves into the mid development phase a blend of black currant, jasmine and cassis takes over and prepares the ground for the base. In the end, this structure dried down to a warm amber accord, mixed with cedar and wrapped in an unmistakable accord of frankincense.
Since Amor pour Homme was my first and last fragrance purchased without sniffing it first, and on top of that one of the scents that disappointed me throughout time, it is only logical to be reluctant after reading about a re-iteration of the scent that you wanted to be forgotten. Nevertheless, after offering Amor pour Homme Tentation a chance and decided to test it, the scent revealed itself as a well-behaved fragrance. One more thing to add: the shape of the bottle might look feminine to the men that are hesitant in relation to their masculinity.
