The 3rd man, a tribute to Orson Wells

In 1934, Caron revolutionized the world of perfumery with “Pour un homme”. We owe him many successes such as “The Anarchist, Più Bellodgia, Lady Caron”… In 1985, Caron unveiled “The 3rd Man”. The apparent simplicity of the fragrance is in fact the result of a very thorough research into ingredients. This aromatic chypre combines fern with floral and spicy accords… With “Le 3e homme”, the brand is once again a great success!

The 3rd man, a tribute to Orson Wells

Caron puts all his know-how at the service of his third male fragrance, “Le 3e homme”. This name is a tribute to the film by Carol Reed, of the same name, and especially to the character of Orson Wells, Harry Lime. Released in 1949, “The Third Man” is a British thriller film. “Le 3e homme” is a virile fragrance for men in search of elegance. It is aimed at men who know how to maintain their intellectual curiosity in all simplicity, just like its hero Orson Wells. “The 3rd Man” is cultured, intellectual and loves to learn. It remains simple for any occasion, simple, but still elegant. “Le 3e homme” is a virile fragrance, which since 1985 has always remained modern and which manages to adapt to each era with ease. Another of Caron’s great and timeless success stories.

The 3rd man’s exotic fruit accord

The apparent simplicity of the composition is at the origin of its success. However, the accords are the result of very advanced research, such as the accord of exotic fruits with fresh notes, which had never been achieved before in a masculine perfume. “The 3rd man” begins with citrus notes (yuzu, lemon, bergamot), which offer a real breath of freshness. These are associated with those of lavender. The heart is composed of a fern accord with the presence of oak moss, coriander and cloves. The base is more woody and more sensual thanks to vetiver and patchouli. The bottle resembles those of the men’s line of Caron perfumes. Sober and elegant, it lets the color of its juice show through. The bottle is rectangular with rounded corners. It is topped with a metallic gray cabochon,

Caron reaffirms here his taste for non-conformism If the composition of the 3rd man is apparently simple, it denotes a lively, modern and resolutely avant-garde spirit. Caron proves, once again, that he knows how to adapt and remain innovative. As a tribute to Orson Wells, “The Third Man” surely resembles him. It is sober, elegant and cultivated. A composition that has stood the test of time with success.
