Cerruti Pour Homme was introduced in April 2007 as an aromatic fougere fragrance, developed by perfumers Michel Girard and Gilles Romey, from Quest. This scent is meant to be a representative masculine perfume from the Italian fashion house which began its operation in 1881, under the name Lanificio Fratelli Cerruti.
Four years ago, while sampling Cerruti Pour Homme, I was surprised by its watery character, described by the 2 perfumers responsible for this project as a “fluid woody fougere” and the combination of ingredients which created a more than pleasant result.
Cerruti Pour Homme begins on a pungent note of mandarin, destined to confer a refreshing sensation from the outset. Next, after this beguiling opening, a mixed aroma of bergamot and citrus zest is balancing the top notes. The following phase, mid development happens after no more than 20 minutes, with the unmistakable aroma of anise kicking in, accompanied closely by spicy basil and coriander, in order to prepare the atmosphere for the dry down. In the final part, Cerruti Pour Homme turns to a woody facet, helped by the combination of guaiac wood, cedar and sandalwood.
Cerruti Pour Homme comes in a flacon that was designed by Thierry de Baschmakoff. The elegant image is shaped by transparent blue-sky shade, with rectangular shape and adorned on the right side by a metallic plate engraved with the name of the house. The cap is also metallic and this entire image exudes style and class.
