Reviews of This is Him!

A surprisingly good and inexpensive designer. Smoky and creamy vanilla, which I suppose reminds one of Sandalwood. The incense keeps this one from being cloying, though it's probably not suited to hot and humid weather. Would that many younger men were wearing stuff as good as this rather than the usual dreck foisted upon them.

I had received a sample of this along with a vintage perfume that I ordered from Spain and although it smells 'tolerable', and by that I mean on another individual other then myself preferably from far away, This Is Him is incredibly cheap and synthetic to the core. I would hate to have to work beside someone who wears this on the regular because this stuff is unnecessarily strong with some monster projection. Outside of the fact that this odor naeuseates me, the aroma chemicals implemented into this composition are of the lowest grade imaginable. Seriously, there was next to no effort or money put into this. The whole ordeal is sloppy and it smells outright bad.

This Is Him is basically an Iso E Super nuke laid over synthesized vanilla and a really cheap 'cedary' accord. This is not a sandalwood aroma chemical in the least as even fake sandalwood doesn't smell like pencil shavings, more along the lines of creamy coconuts. Synthesized cedarwood smells like pencil shavings and I'm detecting a lot of that here. I get zero incense in this even if it is an aroma chemical, no incense, none, zip. No 'churchy', no bokhoor, no smoke, none of that and I'm well aware of what different forms of incense smell like including frankincense, copal, myrrh and resins of that nature, none of that here, zero. Just a bucket full of Iso E Super and fake vanilla over fake woods with maybe some ambroxan as a fixative, in that exact order. Personally, I'm highly sensitive to Iso E Super and can pick it out of any perfume from a mile away and sensed it in this as soon as I had sprayed it on, and also any form of aroma chemical as they project like crazy for endless hours right up my nose that feels like 40 grit sandpaper so naturally I hate this composition with a passion. In so many words, this is a chemical soup. It's too simple, the balance is off and I don't like it anyways because it's a handful of aroma chemicals blended poorly, 'and' I'm also a hater of vanilla so this is double no. Moderately feminine smelling which belongs on a woman. If I smelled this trailing from a dude, I'd think to myself that he's wearing a vanilla perfume for women because that's what this smells like, cheap vanilla.

My conclusion is that this is a 100% fake vanilla perfume with nothing in the way of incense. There are far better scents out there in this price range if vanilla is your bag. I think This Is Him is total garbage, great for beginners though who are entirely new to the world of perfume and haven't really sniffed much but, for a seasoned nose, this stuff is atrocious. The only thing natural about this is that glass flacon. People should go and smell some other stuff, particularly some natural compounds and then come back to this and you'll agree, this is terrible, and it hurts your mucus membranes too. On the upside though, forever sillage, lasts for eternity on the skin in the usual synthesized perfume fashion, even after numerous vigorous scrubbings. I allowed this to sit on my skin for a few hours to dissect it until I just couldn't hack it anymore and had to scrub. Believe it or not but I could still detect a soft sillage from this well over 24 hours later after a shower as well and those vigorous scrubbings which made me hate it that much more so kudos to those fixatives, my goodness. Goooo aroma chemicals!

This is one of those fragrances that rely on dissonance. It smells like WD40 with a hint of diesel having a raucous with vanilla.
Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille immediately comes to mind because of the same dissonance. It is almost not like-able but the more you smell the more you want to smell it and then you're in. Hoooked.

It is not for the wearer, but rather for those who will be around the wearer. The aura is beautiful indeed...intriguing and charming. Sexy.

Worth a sniff, requires full wear test.

i like its drydown. anothe masculine scent i like wearing (being a female). it is woody, spicy, and has something romantic and dreamy to it. i did smell more fabulous scents and know that there are many more one sthat are more interesting, but also many, many worse.

Interesting opening, less appealing dry down. Zadig&Voltaire This is Him is structured around a damp spicy-resinous backbone (frankincense, nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon and pepper I suppose) immediately detectable together with dry woods, ambroxan, hints of lime and liquid grapefruit. There is something wet (cardamomish) and stoney (vaguely mineral) along the top notes before the juice goes sliding towards a denser woody-resinous (finally powdery-cedary) dry down which is less interesting and almost balmy (surely gassy-woody). Lot of mild spices joined to balsams finally render this juice somewhat generic and more approachable. Cardamom and pale greens provide a widespread freshness throughout. I dislike the "in here operating" maistream synth cedary "gassy" woodiness (and the final counteracting creamy spiciness) which seems nowadays to be the common shout of poor modern designer perfumery.
