In their time, Caron and Guerlain epitomised French perfumes abroad. The founder of Caron, Ernest Daltroff, who was of Russian-Jewish origin, never gave his name to the business perhaps for fear of racist repercussions (he had bought Caron as an existing perfumery in 1904 and kept the name, but it was also the name of a then famous French acrobat so it was memorable too). A world traveller, his perfumes reflect the influences of fragrances and colours of faraway lands. Pour un Homme is a "soliflore" of lavender with a powdery end note, much appreciated by men yesterday and today is still among the top selling men's aftershaves in France. A soliflore is a composition built around one note, in this case lavender, the queen of fragrances for a whole generation of French and English gentlemen. Pour un Homme combines the aromatic freshness of lavender with the refined warmth of vanilla, giving the fragrance an original contrast of subtle and elegant freshness with a lingering scent. Combining the two with a strong citrus note can take the scent into a much sharper direction but here, as with Guerlain's iconic Jicky, also composed of Lavender and Vanilla but with the addition of Civet, a much softer and creamier finish is achieved without Jicky's animalic undertones.
