In this article we’ll be doing a review of L’homme Yves Saint Laurent Cologne For Men. I’ll kick this article off with some basic information about this cologne, followed by what I see as the pros of this product, followed by answering a lot of questions that most of us have when trying to pick out a cologne.


  • Masculine Smelling
  • Brings In The Compliments
  • Long Lasting
  • Low Key Non Overpowering

The L’homme Yves Saint Laurent Mens cologne has been one of the more recent colognes that I’ve added to my collection. Even though it released in 2006 I didn’t get around to trying it until 2014 if I recall correctly.

This cologne has made it into my top 10 colognes overall for many reasons with most being the points mentioned above.

Finding a cologne that has a sweet yet masculine smell is not the easiest thing to accomplish which makes it pretty rare in my opinion for when cologne companies get just the right combination of ingredients to achieve this scent. This is where I have to really compliment the makers of this cologne to getting this fragrance to just right.

Do Women Like The Smell

Let’s face it, if the answer is no here nothing else really matters, am I right?

Well, I probably wouldn’t even be writing a review about this cologne if the ladies didn’t like it because I would have probably tossed it. With that being said this cologne brings in compliments from not only the ladies but from just about everyone; co-workers, dates, friends, clients & random people walking by.

Sometimes it’s not direct compliments but it can be someone asking what the name of the cologne is because they want to buy it for their boyfriend or husband.

Overall though the ladies really do seem to have a very good liking to the smell of this cologne.

How Long Does It Last

I get a solid 4-5 solid hours of smell from it with a slight hour or two more of a lesser lingering smell.

This is more than enough for me because it really starts to wear off just as I’m getting off of work. If you need a full days use out of it with it being at full strength then I would recommend bringing it to work with you and keeping it in your car.

This allows you to apply it right before you go into work and also be able to apply it around 4 hours later during your lunch break.

Overall though you’re not going to find that lasts at full strength for 8+ hours a day or at least I haven’t found one so I find 4-5 hour to be a good amount of time.

Where To Buy

I buy mine from over at amazon, just because I usually buy most of my shopping there anyways but they usually have it priced competitively to boot.

If online shopping isn’t your thing then possibly check places such as macys or sephora. I would call ahead of time to see because I usually never have any luck with finding the colognes I was looking for when I do decide to try to find them in local stores.

Should You Buy This Fragrance

Hard to say because everyone likes different colognes but overall for me I find this as one of my favorite colognes and will most likely keep using it as long as they keep making it.

Other than that though, try to find either someone you know who uses it to see if you can borrow it to give it a trial run or maybe just buy a small size to give it a go.

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, if you are then feel free to come yell at me to vent your frustrations.
