What started as a promotional gimmick for a business venture resulted in the creation of Maxim's Pour Homme. When someone asks me to name a masculine frag that is, well......masculine, I always mention Maxim's Pour Homme.
The opening accord of Maxim's Pour Homme is eye opening. I mean that literally. The gravity and masculinity is immediate. It rushes across the skin, escalating into a very noticeable sillage before a cease-fire is called. This takes about 5 minutes and then Maxim's is content to simply posture as the aggressor.
I'll never know what aura Pierre Cardin was trying to encapsulate while creating this masculine. To me, Maxim's is a no nonsense, blue collar fragrance that is physical. This is true, not only in aroma, but in presence as well.
Maxim's ( thankfully ) has stamina and endures the initial onslaught. The dust settles and finds Maxim's still in gladiator mode, but now he's in the corner sitting on his stool. The corner man dispenses with the obligatory pep talk and sends him out for round #2.
Maxim's Pour Homme. Heavyweight with a record of 4,681 wins and all by technical knockout. Sillage and longevity will satisfy even the most bloodthirsty.
Big thumbs up from Aromi for this macho S.O.B. that goes by the name of Maxim's Pour Homme.
