It’s sweet, crisp, clean, almost the perfect job interview or “be presentable with a hint of inviting” scent. It’s good indoors 24/7 365, and it is almost usable in all weather save the dead of cold. THM Man comes across like a more ozonic tobacco-less version of Havana, with some of the woods and spices supplanted with gourmand-like fruit notes.
The scent opens with grapefruit and lavender/bergamot mixed with scent of rain, with a touch of barely noticeable mint. The heart of the fragrance is the soft-quoted “apple pie” accord, and semisweet green apple but tart enough to not disturb the shiny/fresh vibe of the top. From there, it goes down into fresh linens. Some resinous accords that are some form of synthetic woods with usual amber fixative are also spooled in here. It’s not a fougère and not quite an aquatic, but neither is it fully a gourmand, so it’s a fully abstract ozonic scent. Clean, sweet, sharp, a bit warm, and sparkling with a slight ozonic nose tinge. THM Man shows a rare display of warmth without the heaviness or reliance on musk.
