Reviews of Animale for Men

some synthetics don't do too bad by me, but this is not one of them..I get the impression of this chemical cloud surrounding me when I spray this on..The smell is not too too bad, but it smells like a good smelling cleaning product or some flavor of Fabreeze..a burst of citrus at the beginning that goes right into a flowery aromatic green smell..a little fruity-a little sweet..I can see using this as an air freshener but I find that I do not enjoy wearing it...don't really mind the's not bad..just doesn't seem like something to be worn...overall, sort of generic and I can see it appealing to those that like the fruity/sweet, aquatic sporty kind of thing..if it works for you it's definitely a good bang for the buck..dry down is sort of OK..hint of leather, but I don't see why they list vetiver or oakmoss..maybe when it first came out, but not now...
pass on this ( except to use instead of Fabreeze)

Good take on a fresher scent. Long lasting, good sillage. Some of the notes are a tad synthetic, but if I want a fresh fragrance, I want it to last all day, not fade into general rubbish, this stuff does a fairly decent job of it. One of the few fresh scents I find mostly decent from start to finish, that alone gets it a thumbs up.

Yes, it smells green, fresh, simple and cheap, but is effective with women. Personally, I think it resembles some masculine deodorants. My girlfriend and some of my female friends like it, so I respect this fragrance. I don't like its bottle, it looks like an old plastic toy. This perfume is very successful in Brazil where this fragrance is sold everywhere, so I don't kwow why Animale is classified as a discontinued fragrance at Basenotes.Part of the 'Animale for for Men' success in Brazil is devoted to its good price and sillage, as can be read from many reviews.

I smell this citrus floral and I believe I've smelled it before. I have no idea what it was but it's around here somewhere in my brain. Wonderfully dated meaning you know what era this is from. Lasts long and is strong.

What a hidden gem of the early 90 scents. Yes its overly sweet and heady on the lavender and musk - but hey Eternity for men was just has heavy at that time.

The scent just reminds me of 1990 - its a scent to lavish on. It very long lasting and leaves a heady sillage trail. One problem is your nose will get use to it and you will not smell it anymore but trust me other can.

Add it to your collection!

It is not discontinued it is very successful in Brazil and Latin America just not the states. It can be found at Perfumania who is Animale Group and Ebay.

I like! I do not agree smells cheap and simple,
deja vu??!no! like of all phases of this scent, the spicy in the saida abuse of lavanda supported by vetiver and geranium is very well in my skin, good sillage and longevity,
only finds that it could be finer, thumbs above!
