Reviews of Pharrell Williams GIRL

GILR is the cheapest CDG perfume out in the market right now. It has dropped down is price tag a 75%, and one can find online retailers in Europe selling the juice for around 28 Euros only (Originally 120 Euros)

Unisex on the feminine side, it's a well blended fragrance that smells like an experienced power bottom all fresh and groomed, on his way to meet his Saturday hookup. Loves it.

The packaging, branding and bottle are completely beyond my comprehension, so this is just about the scent. I love violet, so this is already a winner for that reason. For me this is violet and black pepper in equal measure at the start, the violet lasting longer as time goes on. It fades to a more powdery skin scent after a couple of hours. I really like the juxtaposition of the slightly sweet, powdery floral and the warm spice, it's a contrast but it works well. It's a pleasant, unisex fragrance. In contrast with others' opinions here, I can't imagine anyone finding this offensive. For me this would be a safe "office" scent (part of me would hope no-one would ask me what it's called though :))

This scent suffers from a sad dead-girl bottle, and a lot of cranky reviews (especially on other sites). Despite all that, I find myself reaching for it whenever the air's a little coolish -- it's got the iris and violet that gives it a mildly powdery quality at the core, but all roughed up by an earthy, woody, peppery edge. This girl likes it.

woody and spicy with good duration and low projection, surely not worth its price tag....

Ew, seriously? The big star of Girl is definitely that generic aquatic "woody amber" smell that's in every cheap men's scent. There's just a minute at the top where it's flanked with interesting sage and vetiver and smells kind of like something Comme Des Garcons might do in their serious line, but then that fake grape smell that's in every mall masculine comes in and cements Girl as commonplace junk.

In a way, if you've somehow managed to avoid every Axe body spray and discount-site men's scent for the last fifteen years, you MAY find Girl appealing as a sort of dumbed-down Black Afgano or as a mediocre entry path into mass-market "niche". But you can smell like this with very little effort for way less money.

I bought this blind upon hearing of Pharrell's involvement with CdG on this, and never having a CdG before, I thought this might be a good intro. It was expensive, the KAWS bottle only in the 3.3oz. of course(!), but the first blast to the neck hooked me! It's a fragrance that appears/disappears over time, and really loving only a scent that I can smell on myself throughout the day, I'm into it! I was dismayed at other BNer's bashing the name 'Girl', but after some fact-checking, apparently 'Girl' is also the title of Pharrell's new album, so maybe this was designed as a kind-of partner-product to the new album? Anyway, another bold step from a true original.
