I've had the chance to try this fragrance again recently after many years and have to say that it didn't impress me, namely i have to agree who with asserts that this juice is mediocre and unispired. I detect some angular (insecticide kind of) citrus at the beginning with a sort of strange white piquancy rising soon from the background before a sort of pungent floral mess starts to bloom out with a sort of detergent/repellent kind of vibe. The dry down is the white strange muskiness ready to attack in a while the sweet/violet/cyclamen kind of floral central burst and to lead the aroma towards a cloying vanillic kind of floral soapiness. Far better some other Moschino's fragrances. Pass by.
Cheap & Chic fascinates me with its diversity and unique blend of both spices and fruits combined with a soapy and clean accord.
I will admit that this fragrance will probably not capture you instantaneously, instead it will grow on you and develop into a scent that is truly difficult to resist.
I love how the coriander blends with the peach and citrus notes in the opening. Together they create such an unusual yet classy scent, which is not too spicy nor too bitter or sour.
The heart is pretty, but not overly feminine. I prefer it that way. It has more of a raw, 'don't mess with me' kind of approach, which would really suit a strong and determined woman.
The musk certainly dominates the drydown, however I don't see this as being this fragrance's downfall. It is a rather nice finish to an incredibly alluring scent.
From start to finish it is obvious that this is an Italian fragrance; such class, such distinction. Beautiful from start to finish, I advise anyone to try this scent.
at first i wasnt keen because i thought the name of it was a bit embarrasing...i decided to try, and thought it was quite a nice smell considering the price tag, long lasting too
Soap. Somewhat zesty at the start, cheap-musky later on. Not good.
Cheap and Chic is it’s extremely soapy, aggressively generic, and decidedly too sweet: Much more on the cheap side than the chic side. Basically mediocre, uninspired, and cheap… and, oh! The bottle makes it what? …a celebrity fragrance? Olive Oyl?
