Reviews of Reserve for Men

Despite the long list of promising and exotic notes, Perry Ellis Reserve for Men ends up being a middle-of-the-line average scent with similarities to Calvin Klein's Eternity for Men as well as Platinum Egoiste by Chanel.

It appears that Reserve for Men was meant to be a classy and more formal flanker in the Perry Ellis 360 series. It is more restrained than most of the others (i.e. 360 original, red, green, black, white, etc.); but its mildness takes away from a promising list of ingredients.

Reserve for Men is meant to be an aromatic fougere, which would usually lead to a more formal, even old-school, men's cologne vibe. Overall, I find it plain, uninspiring, and without character, though it has a freshness that isn't altogether bad for informal days out on the town.

I do get the similarity but I wish this did have more of a resemblance to Eternity. That would make this more enjoyable. Instead, this has almost nothing of note other than being inoffensive, kinda clean, sweet and kinda woody.

They should probably change the name to “Reserved” because of its almost nothing scent and it has a soft projection that sticks around for 4-5 hours.

UPDATE: Gave this additional wearings and it does perform better than my original assessment, albeit with additional sprays on my clothes, which seemed to help. The Eternity-like scent does project better than what I thought, but nothing amazing. I'd rate it as just average. I also got much better longevity, lasting all workday.

Probably one of the more generic smelling colognes out there. I was looking for something similar to Calvin Klein's Eternity and though that this might be an interesting take on it.
I didn't really get the sharp, sweet-but-strong seductiveness of Eternity. Instead it was extremely generic, with no real identity of it's own, not even "meh."
Synthetic in the cheapest way, I would not recommend this, but despite the thumbs down, it doesn't smell bad. It's just that I can't see anyone to wear this.

This is Eternity For Men. How has nobody noticed this?

I agree there are more (fill in adjective) scents out there. But this one has balance for me and gets compiments from co-workers and total strangers when I wear it. It lasts longer on me than most, which is nice.

Incredibly unremarkable, to the point of seeming inconsequential once Reserve settles into its dry-down of standard oakmoss and sandalwood. One of the weakest performers in the Perry Ellis line, this one last 4-5 hours but sits very close to the skin and lacks any power projection wise. Very subtle. Fruity and comforting opening accord, really nice blend of lavender, juniper and fruity notes that are certainly inoffensive but also don´t have much of a personality to cling to.
A decent mid-range priced fragrance that is flexible enough to be used for formal occasions, nights out and work, Reserve works best in a rotation rather than as a signature go to scent. The aromas are nice and versatile enough but against such heavy competition the last ten years, this one has nothing really distinguishing to keep it on most people´s mind.
