Reviews of Romance for Men

Foetidus nailed it by describing this as uninspired and pedestrian. I would also add boring and highly unoriginal. I was working for Armani in the late 90's and they were both distributed by Cosmair, so I was invited to the Romance launch party. They were spraying the cologne everywhere at the party and all I could think was how boring this stuff was - like a dressed up version of Tommy Hilfiger. It's like they really just wanted to play it super safe and not make a statement - such a shame! I ended up trading my gratis bottle for Santos de Cartier and I even traded the women's Romance bottle for Samsara so my girlfriend would smell sexy and sophisticated - the exact opposite of Romance for women. I'm a huge fan of Ralph Lauren Monogram and have a few bottles left, but his 90's scents like Polo Sport and Romance really made a poor impression on me as they are the epitome of mediocrity - something in life I always try to avoid.

Nice classic scent with limited projection but decent longevity. Nice for formal situations. Slight citrus start with a woody / musky drydown with undertones of vetiver. You won't be disappointed with the overall smell of this juice. Enjoy!

Citrusy and Woody, great summer nights out!

I catch the citrus-lavender accord and several aromatic herbs at the beginning, before the aroma slides towards something sharply synthetic, vaguely fruity, floral and mild by woods. An indefinite fruity note, on the side of sweet woods and muguet, gives out the romantic intense effect of this fluidy-musky intimate masculine scent vaguely melancholic and solitary. I don't dislike the Romance For Men's perfume itself but unfortunately I catch a sort of chemical contrast between cool-green herbs and resins on one side and some warm woody and fruity notes on the other side and this alternance turns the aroma out a bit too much headache inducing and chemical in perception.

For this one i would have to say just ok. Its nothing special, but my wife did enjoy it so for that i will give it at least neutral. I could find so much more for the same price as this one. Not bad but not great just ok.

Romance is a scent strictly for night occasion. Using this before in the morning got me all dizzy. Its fragrance is just too heavy for my liking.
