Reviews of SoCal Cologne

On my skin, SoCal is a very sweet, creamy lotion scent. It doesn’t seem especially tropical but it does remind me of the hotel scents that I’ve smelled in Florida, so maybe that is tropical-related. To me, it just a pleasant, generic room scent. Not attention grabbing, seductive, refreshing or anything other than just nice to smell.

Projection is fine during the first 10-15 minutes and then the whole thing is gone after 1 hour. Pretty bad performance overall.

Sweet, fruity almost Ice Creamy. It reminds me a little of a Bijan fragrance though I can't quite place it.

As with my review of Jake, here in the UK these fragrances aren't as common so you really don't tend to find EVERYBODY wearing the same thing. That dubious honour went to the likes of CK1 or Le Male, both of which were bearable but all too often over applied to the point of offense....and in the latter case, still are in 2018 by 40 somethings still convinced that it has some sort of hypnotic power over others. Sad really.

Anyway, no this is not one of those fragrances where you will hear people commenting on the quality of the essential oils used because it is totally synthetic but perfectly nice never-the-less. I would envisage this being wearable anywhere you want to smell good.

In summary, fruity and creamy. Borderline edible. Lovely.

Interesting cause one of a kind, I get angular and dry fruity notes, an undiscernible sort of humid edible element from the wood, woody resins, malt, coconut, bark, sweet musk, patchouli and soft suede. Cozy and "country side type". A teenager in leather jacket "at saloon" kind of fragrance. Southern? Yes, may be. Tropical? Naa.
P.S: recently I've tested Iceberg Man which smells in its dry down almost identical to SoCal Cologne on my skin.

I think I would like SoCal more if I tried it years ago.

This basically opens up the same as Diesel Only The Brave Wild, or CK One Summer 2014. Lots of sugary pineapple giving off the pina colada vibe. There could be coconut there as well. A soft suede dry down, which approaches quick in the mid, before a soft vanilla base.

I'd like it more if it were stronger. This is an EDC and it performs like one. It doesn't project much, it doesn't last more than 2 hours, and I find myself reapplying it all day. It smells like a good suntan lotion really.

I do like it smell wise, better than the other 2 mentioned, because this one actually has an oriental vibe due to the vanilla dry down. Well blended.

Neutral from performance. Spend a little more.. or maybe a little less since Hollister "cologne" prices are highly inflated. Get one of the other 2 mentioned, get better performance.

So if you have been inside a Hollister store you have sampled this fragrance. I really enjoyed the scent while I had it but did not feel the need to replace. This suited me because I bought it in the U.S at a time before Hollister opened its stores here in the U.K so I was one of the only ones wearing it. The fragrance satisfied my sweet tooth and had a kind of beachy/coconut/cocoa vibe going on. Anyway it's a thumbs up from me because it served its purpose for a time and I still find it to be a pleasant smell.

This doesn't smell bad, but you will smell like 50% of high school boys in my area lol. They spray the store with the stuff and if you walk in the store its like a punch to the face. Kind of annoying.
