Reviews of America for Men

Some say Eternity, others say Tommy, I say Polo Sport. It does resemble them all, but really, this is it's own fragrance. Very clean sporty frag, perfect for office and year-round use too. As far as cheapies go, this is very hard to beat. Thumbs up for being a jack of all trades and good at most.

Original review from 2012
A very fruity, very inoffensive daytime fragrance. Strictly superior to Tommy; I find comparisons warranted but complimentary, as America really shines by way of comparison. This is a very youthful fragrance. Perfect for teens. The 25 and up crowd might want to take a pass on this one as it lacks any semblance of sophistication. Still, a pleasant and priced to own spring fragrance.


Edit 3/13/13: Having retried this fragrance for the first time in years, I dare say I have outgrown it to the point of actually finding it quite unpleasant. Really exceptionally cloying on a hot day and the longevity is inconsistent on my skin (and I have average skin; not too dry or oily).

I would now rate this a 4/10. Even though it is very inexpensive, you are better off putting your money towards something better. I'd rather have two or three very good bottles of cologne than 10 not so good ones.

Sweet and fruity top notes that mellow (dry down?) to odd synthetic woodsy/leathery scent. Distinct chemical scent that lasts during wear. Reminds me of those cardboard air freshner trees for your car! Fortunately, it dissipates to nothing in about 4 or 5 hours.

Similar (and better in my opinion) to CK Eternity. It lasts more and smells "cleaner". The Pineapple note is very proeminent.

Another "free sample frag" that came with an order. I kind of felt it was like a spicier Cool Water (again, the silly theory they might have of covering all the scent categories in one blend). It's rather strong, harsh and chemically, with a more leathery drydown than Cool Water, but it's the nasty fake Ass-leather note that I get from cheaper aquatics and fruity scents. Sometimes a particular whiff will be repulsive enough that I really marvel at how bad it is. I won't say that I was surprised though.

Rip off of Tommy? Nah, I think it's a cross between Cool Water and Tommy. But does a copy really make a cologne bad? I happen to like this. I even like Cool Water as well as Tommy. Most predominantly has the sandalwood crisp drydown of Cool Water and Tommy's top notes of "apple pie". This is good for the younger crowd but is probably "dated" by now with kids wearing Axe knocking off niche brands!
