24 the original fragrance is certainly a little weaker than the rest of the line; an incomplete citrus, a sort of orange creamsicle vibe akin to Thierry Mugler Ultra Zest, but not quite as good.
It's very pleasant, just not entirely well-rounded. The top and heart are dominated by a blend of oranges (clementine, mandarin, blood) and in the based, woods and some other notes are mixed in. It's relatively simple and relatively pleasant, just not a standout of the line in the scheme of things, nor something interesting enough that I would pursue it, as there are plenty of other citruses out there, and Ultra Zest is a better creamiscle.
6 out of 10
This is one spicy little number. The notes that stand out are the cinnamon, vanilla, amber, pepper, and nutmeg. This is along the lines of Creed Original Santal and Mont Blanc Individuel. I've owned both of those and I actually prefer 24 The Fragrance. The opening is cinnamon overload, but the heart and dry down are a pleasant blend of cinnnamon, vanilla, amber, and other supporting notes. Great bang for you buck fragrance.
I find it very interesting and long lasting. it has an interesting mix of spices, citrusy and woody notes and nothing headachy about it. I wear at night and receive lots of compliment. I think it is a great deal and definitely stands out
Bought a bottle of this after watching a review of it by MastersOfStyle...he sold it to me. Just a shame the fragrance doesn't really last or even project well. Instant close to the skin stuff. Smells decent I guess but can't really make out any of the notes so it's pretty synthetic. No idea why he went nuts for this fragrances.
This stuff is a headache inducing synthetic mess!!!! Its so abrasive and reminds me of a cheaply made Original santal.
