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.
I like to think of this as Mugler Cologne for a younger audience, although it's not as soapy nor as bitter but rather sweeter and more floral. I went through 2 bottles of this in my teens and for good reason. It just works! No other fragrance I've tried truly captures the complexity of Spring like Lucky You. Call me crazy! The floral opening, with the cotton flower and melilotus herb, blends so nicely with the woody notes in the heart and base. I also get a hint of vetiver throughout the life of the fragrance as well. Longevity is about 4-6 hours and it's projection is moderate. The best part is that a 3.4 oz can be had for under $20 and the shower gel and lotion can be had for a few extra bucks give or take. Either way, it's a wonderful cheapie that's great for the summer and spring months.
Now, imagine yourself in a giant field out in the countryside in the middle of spring. The air is not at all humid. It's just a cool, breezy day, partly coudly, and everything around you seems alive. The field is full of dark green grass with flowers scattered about as they sway in the breeze. You're sitting under the shade of a giant oak tree just admiring nature in all it's beauty and wonder. You close your eyes and nature's aroma puts you at peace. That's what Lucky You is for me. I love this stuff! My final rating B+
