In revealing Eau pour Homme in 1984, Giorgio Armani offered a fragrance perfectly in tune with his creative philosophy. The bottle, with its rounded shoulders and masculine architecture, is the visual embodiment of what it contains. At the heart of the perfume lies a timeless fragrance in a purely Italian, classic style, in which Giorgio Armani has infused a hint of nonchalance, a spontaneous freshness, and warm, calm virility. The formula was perfectly conceived, winning over three generations of men as time went by. True to itself, the Eau pour Homme formula remains completely unchanged. First is the fresh vibrancy of citrus fruit: bitter orange and tangerine, like an initial sun-drenched wave, enlivened by peppery coriander notes. Then come spices – nutmeg and cumin – subtly enveloped by neroli. The freshness grows richer and denser before finally being warmed by the woody aroma of cedar and patchouli, a wild-spirited accord, persistent yet perfectly tamed. Skillfully blending light and shade, the brightness of the sun and the mystery of the undergrowth, Eau pour Homme exemplifies the Armani style perfectly.
