Description

 Caron Third Man was introduced in 1985, a beautiful composition created by Akiko Kamei. It is spiced woods over patchouli and vanilla, very slightly floral. This is another Caron classic.

 Caron Third Man (Caron Le 3ème Homme) Reviews

From Basenotes - "What I find most interesting about Number 3 is how it sits squarely between rich orange and lavender orientals like Aramis JHL (1982) or Jaïpur Homme (1998), and fruity floral fougères like Zino Davidoff (1986) or Lapidus Pour Homme (1987), yet also be so distinctly it's own animal because of that wonderfully-French top hat and cane aesthetic Caron seems able to do so well when they set their minds to it. Granted, their other more avant-garde male creations like Yatagan and L'Anarchiste (2000) have been met with mixed reactions and thus are about as infamous as their more-traditional fare is famous, but they're not a house which makes "just okay" fragrances like modern rivals Calvin Klein or Dolce & Gabbana, so it's expected. Number 3 is a timeless well-rounded and multifaceted floral fougère that was nearly a classic upon release, and we're lucky to still have it in the 21st century, as most of it's later rivals have met discontinuation, but here the Third Man sits, waiting to become the new signature of the next unsuspecting guy looking for something unique and mature."

From I Smell Therefore I am - "Caron's third masculine, it teeters like no other male fragrance on a line very few had the balls to venture. Even now, twenty-five years later, masculines approach this line not by walking it but by blurring it. Third Man is a magic act, an ode to classic male beauty, capturing it in a perfect contrapuntal pose, one shoulder still dipping into childish androgyny, the other pointing toward manhood. Some will tell you that the high shoulder isn't quite reaching high enough. For me, it's all just so, and just right. I can't remember a time Third Man struck me as too girly--yet I wouldn't call it a dandy fragrance either. It doesn't have an arch bone in its body, nor does it have a deliberate sense of Wildean irony."

    Sometimes soapy, sometimes not

    There are some fragrances that sometimes smell like soap to me (Faconnable is one) and sometimes they don't...this is one, although more often than not it just smells like an elegant men's cologne. I can't really describe the smell other than that it is fairly complex, though very well blended. I wear this to work as well as to evening functions, and it has really grown on me.

    What's the fuss about?

    I was disappointed after all the hype. I don't remember it very well, but I think I found it too feminine and rich for a man.
