Gucci Pour Homme Fragrance Reviews

OMG......this fragrance is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!
I agree that there's never too much elegance which is an excellent way to describe this frag. Gucci pour homme and Noble are the pillars of Gucci's early success creating two amazing men's fragrance's.
The open notes of this luxurious frag is a hint of bergamot, lavender, sandalwood and a refined mixture of spices.
The heart of this frag is the aromatic and masculine scent coming from leather, cedar wood as well a warm/sweet scent of amber and musk.
After this frag settles you can pickup all the subtle floral notes of jasmine, iris and french labdanum making this juice very desirable hands down.
Having worn this frag both during the day and evening I'm always have someone come up and say that you smell sooooooo good.
Both longevity and Silage are EXTREMELY high-quality. On my skin this fragrance lasts beyond 10hrs.
Finally thoughts,
How can anyone not find this fragrance amazing? Regardless of your skin type or your body chemistry, this fragrance is priceless. Rating this frag less then perfection is an insult on those who worked behind-the-scenes in the birth of this fragrance. Kudos to Gucci...10/10 love this frag ♥♥♥♥♥ :)))

This is the first perfume I wore, given by my father. He was presented as a gift but never wear so it was passed on to me in the beginning of 80's.
It is a classic class, it is simple fragrance perhaps at that time guys would buy too. Probably one of the flagship perfume before many more were released years after. I love it and I can still imagine the scent in my mind.

What does one do when the bottle of this is running empty. You have tried to find a new one but no luck.

These are sad times indeed.

I have not had the opportunity to sample a large amount of Gucci fragrances in my lifetime and experience with scents.

I do have Gucci Pour Homme II, and recently purcahsed this vintage version of Gucci Pour Homme.

This is a very sneaky scent to me. I sprayed some on a card, and the beauty of it eluded me at first. Then i sprayed some on my wrist, and I have fallen in love with it. This is a dynamite fragrance.

I do not so much get the woody notes, as some spiciness with citrus and a hint of what appears to me as vetiver,and definitely musk.

In conclusion, i love this shit! I adore the sheer masculinity and power of this fragrance. It is the scent for an ideally strong and driven man.

Take the time to sample this on your skin a couple times, as you will not be disappointed.

Some time soon I will be sampling the newer version of Gucci Pour Homme from the Tom Ford era.

Being honest, I have never been a Gucci admirer or 'fan' and probably never will be, but one has to appreciate 70's luxury in a bottle.

It's a 'reserved powerhouse', lemons, masculine yet high-quality woods and leather then appear over a background of oakmoss. The mid also feature the famous florals (geranium, carnation) and herbal-lavender of course! See- Gucci Pour Home 1.

Old-skool for sure, but with a touch of assured quality and luxury the brand simply could not translate properly into the 21st century. Gucci Pour Homme 2 remains their best for me, a 3/5 for the surprisingly elegant herbal tea-fume.

High 2/5 for this one. Knock off a point (or 2) if you're an 'old-skool' hater.

First impression after spraying it on cloth: a perfect blend, with clear lemon, vanilla/amber, leather, patchouli, and a floral accord. I don't really get the wood but there's a hint of geranium and some spice element that helps to create a somewhat creamy quality overall. In some ways, it strikes me as Pub Cologne made elegant, though the notes aren't exactly the same (PC has clear anise whereas here there is a suggestion of anise). Though there's a touch of the crude here, the overall suggestion is that of a man with power who uses it judiciously, cognizant of what the masses desire. There is considerable richness and weight here, but it doesn't have the dryness required to produce great depth, not that it's necessary (Joint for Men is the deepest fragrance I've experienced). This is an excellent example of a high quality, blended designer fragrance, and to be honest, I prefer it to Patou Pour Homme. To me it is what I'd call a citric oriental, though with a chypre accord that becomes clear eventually (but it's never very strong). It's sort of like the citric oriental is covering up the chypre, and as it weakens you get a sense that a chypre is present. I get no fougere accord, however.

UPDATE: I wore it normally today and my assessment is roughly the same, though I find it a bit more refined than on cloth. Clearly, it's not for the young, fresh, sport, aquatic or party crowd.

UPDATE: Wore it today and got more lavender this time around, in a fougere accord, but it's light and nicely blended into the whole. The wood notes are no more than a bare background hum. It's a slightly powdery fougere/chypre/oriental hybrid with quite a bit of complexity, but it's subtle complexity. If you felt that Z-14 was way too crude this would be one to try, for example. Fortunately, I have two bottles and can swap one off if the right offer came along (one scent I'm seeking more of right now is Rose d'Homme, for example).

Edit: Found another 60ml bottle, it´s a treasure.

Some thirty five years after this reviewer was handed a miniature of the green and red lined bottle as a nine year old, I remain as awed now as I was then.

The phases are all assertive and designed to make an impression. From the lavender/herbal/citrus opening, the subsequent soapy episode through to the high quality cedar middle, and into the seasoned leather finish. Longevity and sillage appear to have been prerequisites, as the purpose of Gucci Pour Homme was surely to impress the socks off anyone that came into contact with it.

It is unapologetically masculine,and there does not appear to have been a single compromise during its formulation. It cannot conceivably have been created anywhere other than mid-seventies Italy, and most likely premiered by moustachioed Maserati salesmen firing their charges along a sun-kissed autostrada.Quite superb

Rating: 4/5 Excellent

This is a true masterpiece created by Guy Robert and one the most iconic masculine chypres ever created. Gypsy Parfumista's articulate (and wonderfully enthusiastic) review captures what this scent is...for those of us lucky enough to have it, or to have even ever smelled this divine juice. One of my favorite classic male scents of all time. It is simply stunning & timeless.

I am left, almost speechless...Wow!!! Desmondorama, I second your wish that this iconic and sensual fragrance somehow be reissued. However, I have to say, that this is an absolute classic - truly iconic. Sometimes it is better to let the days of yesteryear be forgotten by the new generation and only sought out by those really want to relive them or experience what existed in a bygone era.

Alfarom, who I admire greatly on this forum, has it fully correct. You cannot compare this to anything created under Tom Ford. This is truly a 70's chypre with an awesome warm leather, musk, woody, amber and oakmoss base covered in lavender, sparkling citrus, and beautiful florals - carnation, geranium, jasmine and powdery iris in the heart. It can be worn year-round although Spring, Fall and Summer evenings offer more strength and richness due to the warmth, I find it creates it own sunshine on cool, cloudy winter day. A scent that commands respect and will always be one I reach for on the day of a special occasion.

I could not be happier to have this in my collection! If 2oz of liquid heaven has a price tag - then it is on a bottle of Original Vintage Gucci Pour Homme. "There can never be too much elegance in your life"...what a marketing tagline and this came out when I was a very young child. I have finally discovered what the beauty and hype is all about - it only took me three plus decades to do so in my existence. 5/5 stars!! 10/10 and, please anyone who does not know what a chypre is - do not waste your time. Leave this iconic juice for those who appreciate it and understand the art of perfumery.

Update: I put a couple of dabs from a 4oz/120ml bottle (like the one above with the green and red stripe on the cap & a classic squared flacon - identical to the bottle shown here on Fragrantica) on the back of my hand just 5 minutes ago. I will put this poetically to evoke my sentiment: "To me, this is like coming home to my beautiful wife...and she kisses me the way she did like the first time we kissed, years ago." It is simply...stunning. For me, Gucci Pour Homme Original (1976) is a timeless, masterpiece of scent that will forever be relevant and captivating!

still have some of this fragrance, was able to find a small amount of splash on ebay, smells fantastic still.put into a spray atomizer..i save it , if just to spray it once in awhile to smell this masculine masterpiece...this fragrance says simply..." yep, i got a set." i wish they would produce this again..cannot think of anything new that kicks it's ass..unless you want to smell like a cinnamon bun, still one of my all time favorite colognes,crisp snappy and all man..no confusion on who just walked into the room.
sort of reminds me of armani pour homme.. just some similarities there..

Yep this is rarer than hair on a balding man. I have 15ml left. I'll admit I came by it completely by accident thinking I was buying the modern version.
Want to know what this was like?
Get in touch: now. Before every last drop of Gucci Pour Homme in the world is gone.

Like the ad says: "There can NEVER be too much elegance in your life". THIS is just what the name implies GUCCI ("old school" Gucci, at that) FOR MAN! This smells like a man, and captures, so well, that European sense of quality and luxury that the brand has always signified. This scent, also, is the perfect example (at least for me) of a stunning male chypre.

*Many thanks and reverent bows to Action for the gift of a full sample vial of this wonderful manscent!* You are still the High Priestess of Perfumes...and always will be!

This opens beautifully with clean citruses combined artfully into warm greens and clean floral aromas, manly from whoa to go!! First it is clean and manly then, as it develops, it becomes wonderous with dry flowers like carnation and geranium and irises with the warmth of pepper and earthy woody notes...HEAVEN! Like most TRUE chypres, this takes a while to unfold all of its beauty. And, as it does, I am amazed that Gucci even thought they needed another fragrance besides this one. If this is "dated", you may call me an 'old fogey'! GPH is another disastrous loss at the hands of either the IFRA or those who sought to dilute everything within an inch of its life, while supposedly making things "more modern" and I simply cannot imagine why!?! God, words cannot do this justice, it just HAS to be smelled. There is nothing even remotely feminine (even the jasmine is "butch") or "unisex" about this scent. It is all man, all the time! Strong, but not brutal, and amazingly luxurious without smelling too "rich". The eventual drydown is perfumed paradise for this guy! Warm, like a favorite wool fisherman's sweater, it eventually gets covered with a beautiful soft leather note and sweet tonka, resins and musk. Oh, and the oakmoss here really shines! OAK moss, now, not tree moss or black moss or whatever else they are using these days...REAL honest to goodness Evernia prunastri, that grows on oaks and other deciduous and coniferous trees and has a woody and sharp slightly sweet smell you cannot mistake. Gucci Pour Homme makes me feel like I am dressed in a vintage Italian leather coat and loafers, hand woven sweater and bespoke twill pants; even when I am wearing bleached out ripped jeans and a tee shirt (like today). What I wouldn't give to own an original vintage bottle of this golden elixir...

Sillage: very good
Longevity: amazing
Overall: 5/5 Chyprefect!

It came to my attention when using the search feature on here to bring this page up that the 2005 version is "pour Homme" and this magnificent melange is "Pour Homme"...that P should be capitalised! Everything about this scent is upper case, upper echelon and upper crust! I bow humbly in the face of Greatness...

One spritz on my chest and....what's this?! Chest hair? I don't remember being this hairy, and where did this gold chain come from?! Why won't the top 3 buttons of my shirt button?! Is that Stayin Alive from the BeeGees I'm hearing?! OMG, this is the seventies in a bottle!! This is a remarkable chypre with its lemony lavender opening that hangs around for quite some time...not like today's citrus that burns off in a minute or two, these notes stay around for a Drambuie and a Winston. Then the wonderful creamy leather notes come hustling in with an ever so slight woody beat, and an entourage of oakmoss. Very muted florals dance in and out, as well as some kinky spice. In the end, we are left lying on a leathery mossy bed of vintage goodness. This is an old school chypre and is not afraid to smell like one. There really is nothing modern about this, so if modern citrus and chypre is what you are expecting, you will find yourself a stranger in a strange land. You will hear many singing praises for this throwback fragrance, but know that it is just that. Many will find this inaccessible and ugly to their nose. This is not one of those universal beauties that can transcend time. This is clearly stuck in the past, and that is its charm. Buyer beware. Wow, I had forgotten how comfortable platform shoes are.

The original Gucci Pour Homme and the later Tom Ford's version perfectly represents the two peaks of Gucci's success. The first one back in the 70's when the Gucci family was at the top of their popularity and always protagonist in the main fashion magazines. A family surrounded by mistery, intrigues and extreme luxury and elegance. In this context Gucci Pour Homme (original) was perfectly fitting the bill with a superbe combination of woods (mainly cedar), deep leather, pipe tobacco and some floral notes (lavander and bergamot). A complex composition, that's rich and elegant but not too mannered and one of those perfumes that we can't forget. Great!

In the late 80's the big success of the house started to decline due to several conflicts and scandals in the Gucci's family, but fortunately Tom Ford came in and saved the brand from oblivion. 1999-2003 (perhaps 2004) was the best period for Gucci and the new Gucci Pour Homme, was the expression of those creative years and one of the last good releases form this (once) gorgeous maison.

I agree this was a great fragrance. I used to always be complimented on this fragrance. Masculine, woodsy, a hint of cinnamon note, soft musk and an air of elegance. Genuine wrist sniffer in the office. Come on Gucci, please re-issue.

I had this years ago and I really loved it! It was quite lasting, sexy, warm and quite masculine. I wish Gucci would reissue this iconic and sensual fragrance again!
