Woody Basil (inspired by YSL's L'Homme) explodes on top thanks to an uplifting and crisp combination of basil and ginger, with a hidden hint of violet. Next, the fragrance evolves toward a refined woods complex, sweetened with warm spices and tonka bean.

Unmistakably masculine, Woody Basil (our impression of YSL's L'Homme) is a fragrance of timeless elegance, embellished by a sprinkling of innovative raw materials.

The Essence of Seduction

Exciting, thrilling, and adventurous – these are the characteristics of a fantastic men’s cologne. Whether it’s for a trip to the beach, a night out on the town, or a big meeting at the office, the right cologne can put you in the right frame of mind.

In that vein, enter Yves Saint Laurent’s L’Homme Eau de Toilette (EDT).

YSL’s masculine fragrance for men is irresistible, sensual, and magnetic – a classic and arguably trademark scent for the brand. This floral musk combines the finest notes of bergamot and ginger, blended with sweet vetiver and warm cedar. All this to create a fragrance that captures the timeless elegance of the modern man.

But for all its masculinity, the fragrance is pleasantly airy and fresh. The scent may belong to the earthy scent family, but it stands out as something much more delicate due to its distinctive blend of wood and citrus notes. At the same time, it also remains true to the intriguing, mysterious, and alluring elements synonymous with the image of the YSL brand.

L’Homme opens with the bright, warm scents of ginger, lemon, and bergamot. The fragrant heart of this scent is formed by iris and violet notes, giving it a lovely, yet simple floral touch. The cologne also features basil flowers and a whiff of white pepper, solidifying its reputation as a highly masculine scent.

Overall, this is a very light and airy fragrance. Performance-wise, it’s a bit thin on sillage. And it won’t project a whole lot. But we like the effect it creates. It’s a low-key pleasant scent that is easy to like and will definitely turn heads if people catch a whiff of it. This is the type of fragrance you can wear anywhere and at any time, no matter what the occasion.

At this point, YSL L’Homme already occupies a place of honor as a timeless classic fragrance for men. It’s so iconic that it has inspired several other notable YSL colognes, each attempting to capture its woody, delicate scent. There’s the Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Intense Eau de Parfum (EDP), a strong and captivating fragrance that amps up the original power of L’Homme. In this case, we should also point out that, yes, the scent is stronger. There’s also a Cologne Bleue by L’Homme floating around somewhere if you like your cologne with an aquatic twist. Summer perfumistas can also look for Yves St. Laurent L’Homme Sport, a flanker that offers a lemony twist on the classic and gives it the boost it needs to shine on the warmer days of the year.

Woody Basil is our thought-provoking interpretation of this iconic fragrance for men. Unmistakably masculine, our YSL L’Homme dupe is a stunning replica of the original, down to the most intricate of notes. This is a scent of timeless elegance, embellished with the wealth of innovative components, and without being burdened by a high price tag. A truly magnificent dupe fragrance on all fronts.
