Hei? This should be called SHE. Pardon me, if my review is biased on this one, as I put it on my skin once, and was immediately disappointed. While looking for a fragrance with a good bamboo note, this was recommended to me, and the price was within reason for sure.
It is green, but not the type of green I like. It's a little sour, off-putting; I get more floral's than green notes. Not the type of floral's that a man like myself could pull off either. I get a very wet accord too. The dry down is decent, but the opening and mid, really don't go away for a good 4 hours. The base note dry down is a decent soft woods blend, with a little musk.
While it doesn't appeal to me and certainly doesn't condone a neutral rating. It does get 2 out of 5 stars in my wardrobe. Rarely will many fragrances get 1 star by me, they have to smell like diarrhea, vomit, rotten food, etc. Hei smells like none of those, but it doesn't work for my skin.
I ordered Hei after it was suggested as a better Aqua Velva. I got disappointed terribly. Hei is just a cheap copy of Davidoff's Cool Water. Very plain, without character and gets annoying already after a minute.
I stumbled across this fragrance in a local chemist being sold rather cheaply. I was a little dubious at first, however I wanted to buy my man something so I decided to give it a try.
I find the scent to be very similar to Cool Water by Davidoff, I think it's because of the lavender note. I consider that a good thing because both my man and I love Cool Water.
Hei is a refreshing, clean and rather sexy scent. I figured that since my boyfriend already had Cool Water I would buy Hei in the deoderant and aftershave balm rather than the fragrance. When he blended and layered the two it was difficult to tell the difference.
Hei is a fabulous fragrance for those warmer months because it is so light and casual. The lasting strength is also wonderful.
I don't regret buying Hei products for my boyfriend, yet sometimes I wish that women weren't so attracted to the scent. He certainly receives many compliments and interested women when he wears this fragrance.
I bought Sung Hei after seeing comments on basenotes that Hei and Aqua Velva were very similar. I don’t find this to be the case at all. I love Aqua Velva – it’s a dense, pepperminty, musky, distinctive fragrance. Sung Hei is a watery, generic aquatic with an oddly dry edge that I find irritating.
Sung Hei has some dry note, possibly the bamboo, that I find very irritating and headache inducing. I don’t detect any musk or woods or any of the other notes – just a thin, grassy aquatic mess. It’s inoffensive and inexpensive, but I can’t recommend it.
Ice Blue Aqua Velva from Williams Revisited.
Although it is better quality and slightly more sophisticated and modern, it is still Aqua Velva.
