Must admit after the reviews I was expecting too much from reaction. It disappointed me. Almost a sweet melody type of scent nothing too special here, not really a daily wear or signature scent but still sweet enough not to hold a bad review from me. Recommended for daytime wear.
I highly recommend! Although its a synthetic apple/melony fragrance it is still very pleasing! Right now i am in high school and this is my go to signature scent. The ladies love it! Everyday i get numerous compliments from women saying i smell very good! If you are in high school buy this scent! For just $30 you can not beat it! Love it!
poor longevity- fruity
I get the melon/ watermelon notes and it smells nice but fades within the hour..so for $30 its just not worth it...going back!
Mrscologneguy bought it for me many years ago, and it's still a somewhat guilty pleasure. Guilty, because the sweet melon notes should not be so enjoyable in a fragrance worn by mature men. . . but WTF, who are you wearing this fragrance for anyway? Strictly to be applied for personal delight, but don't be surprised if women love it on you, too. Strangely strong compliments from a wide variety of female co-workers. My wife still likes it on me. Hard to argue with that kind of performance from any designer fragrance.
Overall, Reaction has been a staple for me for years.
Reaction can wear across a wide variety of conditions, is pleasant yet pleasing beyond "innoffensive", and gets compliments.
I don't run across people wearing this underrated frag, so it seems that people who compliment me seem to think its unique.
The most recent compliment from a 20-something clerk was "you smell fanTASTIC!". That was the most dramatic one I have received. Sort of caught me off guard.
To get a decent amount of longevity may require a bit more product, and close proximity to others may be best avoided if done, during the initial dry i the first hour or so.
I don't think you can go wrong with Reaction, for its intended casual/regular use.
Always gets replaced when I run out.
