Sung Homme by Alfred Sung
Thyme, Rose, Pine Needles, Jasmine, Geranium, Carnation, Aldehyde.
Cedar, Fir, Leather, Musk, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver.
My first impression of Sung Homme is that soap and tobacco lovers should find this offering very agreeable. Released in 1988, it's neither brutish or a powerhouse. It is, however, a very masculine and clean wear that's also very versatile.
With all the listed notes and the expected interplay, what comes to life on my skin is soap with an underlying tobacco note. Upon application, the accord is a tad sharp, but softens within 5 minutes or so to grace the wearer in a smoker's version of "clean". It remains this way ( on me ) for the life of the scent. Extremely linear, Sung Homme possesses moderate sillage and average longevity of about 4 hours. Since I smoke and have been called stupid for doing so, I am persuaded to call Sung Homme Soap-on-a-dope and call it good.
