This is without a doubt so good it makes me ANGRY ! What angers me about this will anger others from America that love this fragrance like I do. Well, for those that don't live in America I will tell you if you own this fragrance you will be a lucky guy that has a one of kind fragrance as I gather this isn't sold in other countries. So you don't get the back lash we do of it being from a Teenie-bopper store that is fad oriented, and anything that is known as a fad becomes played out before long. It sucks when a fragrance is known as a fad because even if the fragrance is the best in the world sooner or later there will be a back lash against it. This happened in the 80's with Polo (green bottle), and Drakkar. I remember one day it was ..."WOW you smell so good", and 6 months later in a nasty snear the same person smelling the same scent would say ... "ewwww are you wearing Polo". Fierce has been somewhat lumped into this category. However, since Polo wasn't linked to a specific store for Teenie-boppers it was aloud to resurface and now can be worn now and then without negative comments, but with getting compliments as many don't know this fragrance anymore. Will Fierce be able to do the same ?

I just had to weigh in my personal experience with this Bijan fragrance. Bare with me basnoters, as this is my first review. Before I tell you what I think of this scent. I will start by saying I love all types of fragrances. Those for young, and those considered to be for the old. I have a pretty tolerable nose and good body chemistry. I can pretty much wear anything and get away with it. Yes even Kouros and Van Cleef & Arpels to name just a couple. When I read reviews on how some thing is edgy my interest gets PEAKED ! ENTER BIJAN. Well I found a bottle of Bijan on discount today ($7usd). Purchased it. Took it home. Then sampled as per the many reviewers instructions. At first I thought. WOW this is going to be good. I love fragrances with heavy INCENSE. So, I thought GREAT ! Wrong, wrong, wrong ! I kept this on as long as I could. I possibly kept it on about 5 hours. I literally ended up with a head ache, and a real feeling that I was going to vommit. You know, when the juices come up to the top of your neck ? ! So I jumped in the shower as fast as could ! It took quite a while to wash this stuff off me. Now the reason why I stated my like for edgy frags earlier, is to say... Hey, I love just about everything. I've never in my entire life had a fragrance (even if I didn't care for it) make me physically ill ! Never, ever, ever ! Enter BIJAN ! I really could see where this one was trying to go and wish it went there, because at first whiff I thought I was going to be extremely happy. Now, I'm in a fedal position trying to recover. My suggestion is find a open box at your discount retailer. Let a little drizzle on a wrist (don't spray). If it does to you what it did to me you know not to buy. Oh well, 7 dollars. It could have been worse. It could have been $8 ! Hehehe ... This is headed for the garbarge !
