At first sniff, I dismissed Lucky You for Men as just another aquatic/airy scent in the tradition of Cool Water or CK One. But there's actually more going on here. The top notes here don't list citrus or orange blossom, but it sure smells like they're part of the opening chord. Once past that, though, Lucky You mellows into a nice green woody accord reminiscent of Paco Rabanne Sport or Pierre Cardin's Insatiable. The freshness of the top notes stays around to interact with the base notes in a very pleasant and invigorating way. To me it smells like taking a walk in the woods shortly after a rain, when the air is rejuvenated, and the damp earth and fallen leaves add a depth to the scent of the air. Very nice!
The ratings have this right. The first 30 minutes, this is identical to Curve. As it dries down, it improves to a more pleasant sweet, grassy character. I detect the bamboo and teakwood rising as the scent moves past an hour. The duration and projection I receive from Lucky You are exceptional. I did not find this synthetic or offensive, but it isn't one I would wear often either. Nice, but not special.
synthetic bamboo/grassy with musk drydown
why all the hate? Not the greatest but for $15 its a good unoffensive scent and gets compliments...grassy and fresh.
Pros: price for large bottle
I wish Lucky You did smell like Irish Spring but on my skin it does not.
It is fresh smelling but I don't get a soapy fresh I get more of a grass scent.
A little goes a long way and unfortunately this becomes cloying on my skin if more than one or two sprays is applied.
I agree with others who state this is a more wearble version of 'Curve".
Although I will wear it it won't be often as there is nothing very special here.
Nice bottle though.
I bought a sample of this stuff, I had ran out of my only fragrance whilst on vacation, and had a party to attend.. To my surprise, this stuff was a huge compliment getter, although, this could be because, I was more than likely the only person there, wearing something other than old spice/axe.. if anything at all. I personally like it alot, though it unfortunately reminds me a tad of Brut, just.. much more fresh, better, not dirty.
