Saw a bottle of this juice while waiting in line to check out at Marshalls. Cost was 10 bucks. Box was already open. I said, "what the hell."
United Colors of Benetton Man starts out with a very sweet, minty candy scent. Unfortunately, within seconds this harsh, monstrously loud synthetic woody note rises out of the candied depths like Swamp Thing from the primordial muck. The minty candy gets weaker and weaker and the "woods," which actually smell more like a really strong, really noxious rubbing alcohol, get stronger and stronger until finally you can take it no longer and scrub off this atrocity of a scent.
You can find a lot of good scents at really good prices at Marshalls. Quorum and Azzaro Man immediately come to mind. Unfortunately, United Colors of Benetton Man does fall into that category.
From the "For What It Is" Department: Just another fresh, sporty cologne and is definitely like Acqua di Gio, Perry Ellis 360 Red or Lacoste Style in Play but not as "good". Doesn't last long, smells a tad chemical, etc.
From the "For What It's Worth" Department: Cheap and good for those on a budget and for college kids who just want to smell good.
It doesn't last long on my skin but it is definitely one of the best scent ever smell. acqua di giò could be the competitor.
the bottle has a surprising design: a touch of coloured art for any bathroom shelves!
