Here we go again with another clone! Well, in fairness it's counterpart Eau De Cartier Zeste De Soleil was released after this. This is a very pleasant long lasting tropical fruit punch with some clean cotton in the background. Projects well and lasts too. Much niceness for a warm summer day or evening even.
In my opinion, there is a little bit of genius in this one. i like it
I purchased this blind after reading the reviews.
The bottle I received has the orange color fluid-not the blue.
It's not a bad fragrance but it's not very unique either.
To my nose this smells so similar to IZOD that I'm not at all impressed. IZOD has better longevity.
Yes 'Reaction T-shirt' is clean and fresh and nice for casual wearing but really, having worn Izod for years this seems like a boring rendition with a little more citrus added. That's it. Why pay the extra bucks for a gimmicky name?
And speaking of gimmicks...what about the name 't-shirt?'
This should be named 'Reaction Underpants' since the longevity of this fragrance is so 'brief'.
I am still waiting for the review that states "I have underpants that smell exactly like this".

Base Notes: Cotton Flower, Musk, Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar
Reaction T-Shirt is actually a very unique and interesting fragrance. It doesn't remind me of anything that I've smelled but does give off the clean vibe from Gendarme for Men. Picture that clean, fresh linen smell from Gendarme. Now add all the fruity notes and gin, and that's what it smells like. In the top I get a puree of all the fruits blended, then I get a bit of the lavender and a heap of gin in the middle with the fruits still sweetening the mix, and in the base, I get a light musk and cotton flower with the gin/lavender/fruit puree dominantly lingering over. It's the scent of your favorite white cotton T-Shirt after it comes out of the dryer, assuming that you also used fruit-scented dryer sheets. You know when you're going out with friends but it's a casual hang out so you wear just any casual cologne? Y'all possibly go shoot pool or have a few drinks at a casual bar, maybe hang out and just have a few beers at each other's house while watching a game, then after the evening is over, you come home and crash out in your clothes. You wake up at noon and have nothing special planned so you stay in that same clothes and for the remainder of that day you keep smelling the light, leftover remnants of your cologne, from the previous night, on your t-shirt. You've just smelled Reaction T-Shirt! I really enjoy this one but sillage isn't so good but then again, that would sort of defeat the purpose of what this fragrance is about. I've only received a handful of compliments while wearing this but they were positive. Longevity is around 4-6 hours and it's a casual scent, nothing too special, good for anyone in their teens to someone in their 30's. It's meant for the warmer months but also works in cooler weather. My overall rating B-
It's clean, fresh, icy, comforting and unique. I love this in my rotation of fragrances.
