olivier-martinez-lhomme-sport Olivier Martinez has no fear of long-term commitment. Proof? The French actor has been in a fruitful eight-year relationship with Yves Saint Laurent as the face of L’Homme. “The longer you stand with people, the better it becomes,” he says of his time with the iconic brand, which he deems “stylish and creative—just like a designer suit.”

Martinez takes on two new projects this year: a recurring role on the television series
Revenge and a campaign for L’Homme Sport. The cologne is a woody amber with notes of bergamot, cardamom, spice, musk and cooling aldehydes—a mix well suited to a man with a love of adventure, travel and fast cars.

lhomme-sport Martinez says the notes in the
cologne remind him of his youth, when he spent time in and around the ring with his pro-boxer father. “There are two smells that I can recognize right away,” he reminisces. “The smell of the boxing ring and the smell of a garage. That’s where I grew up. I can recognize these places with my eyes closed.”
