The Secret is out... "For Him 2" is a pleasant man's fragrance that lacks longevity...
Ok... You have to try them all...!! While shopping for Sweetie in Victoria's Secret, I picked up a bottle of Very Sexy For Him 2 - hold the comments, please..!! Based on how the tester smelled, I decided, "what the heck..!!" I have finally got around to try it...
Him 2 comes out of the bottle with notes of the outdoors, water, and floral. It finishes with notes of evergreen and floral. A nice blend that is pleasant to the nose. There has been some comparison to Versace Eau Fraiche - not sure I get that - Eau Fraiche is in my Top 5 (out of a collection of over 300 bottles). The projection/sillage is weak and the longevity is below average. Following the initial application, the fragrance is a disappointment. Following the initial application, you may get favorable comments, i.e. the Wow Factor, but that chance diminishes as the day progresses.
The bottle is a cool design in which the cap serves as a placement holder for the bottle should you decide to use it that way. The packaging is above average. The price/value is not up to par - there are plenty of fragrances out there on-line or at discount stores with better scents at a lower price.
My final tally of Him 2 is 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Only recommended if you purchase at the store - "from what I am told" (i.e. Sweetie may be reading), the scenery is not bad..!! Enjoy life...
To me, initially Very Sexy For Him 2 smells like a light version of Versace Man Eau Fraiche, then it turns into something spicy almost like a light oriental. It has little by way of projection. Its longevity is somewhat confusing - the six sprays I put under my clothes disappeared after four or five hours, but the spray I put on my wrist is still there with some strength as I write this 15 hours later.
The bottle states "Cologne Spray" like numerous other American made EDT bottles have written on them (e.g. Tommy and Michael Jordan). I'm not sure how other reviewers have drawn the conclusion that Very Sexy For Him 2 is thus necessarily an Eau de Cologne.
Initially the fragrance smells nice, but it lasts a solid 5 minutes. After an hour, i cant even smell it when i bury my face in my arm. Dont expect any compliments from this unless you take off the top and pour it on yourself. Even then you would be lucky to get an hour and a half of longevity, with 30 minutes of projection. If they made a EDT version i would consider purchasing it, but with the price being what it is, this fragrance IS A JOKE!!!! it's a good thing it is no longer in production.
Picked this up off a basenoter who was practically giving it away. Seeing the generally favorable reviews and the fact that it is now discontinued, i decided to try it
Pleasantly surprising as a scent. Indeed, i cannot deny that this is rather synthetic upon initial spray, but i find that as the scent wears on, the synthetic smell disappears into a very pleasant and sophisticated scent.
A little bit spicy at first, masculinely sweet as well.
As it is a EDC, the longevity is not great, but it is not nearly as bad as most EDC's. In fact it starts off rather strong, and i find the sillage to be rather good.
Passable for daywear, good for evenings out or intimate nights.
Not an "old-man" scent by any means, and worth a try if the chance comes.

I like this one the same as the first, but they're different in their own way. Very nice smelling, complimented often. Need a new bottle.
Do I think it smells good? 5/5
Compliments from the ladies? 5/5
