Reviews of Just Me for Men by Paris Hilton

Total Reviews: 24
Smells good and can be found online cheap. It does resemble AdG, which is why this is still a good smell, but I prefer 360 Red as it smells better (to me) and performs better.

Projection is only good for a couple hours. Longevity is average.

I think this is a thumbs up if you are searching for a value for money scent. Please don't expect wizardry in this isle of the perfume section.

Its an ADG clone that seems to have good lasting power. It's of course more synthetic, with a rough alcohol opening that dries down to a pleasant (if boring) sweetness.

The price, dry down and performance (6-8 hours) make it a buy for me.

I'm not sure I completely follow the ADG comparisons, but Just Me by Paris Hilton is interesting in its own right, and I opted to buy a 30ml bottle (less than $10 on FragranceNet) due to the heap of praise it's received.

Dominated by a sweet, citrus, and somewhat floral mix of top notes that don't give way to anything else, Just Me is bright in the way of a women's designer fragrance but occupies a pleasant unisex space that men can enjoy as well. I was intrigued by the reported blueberry note, but I don't smell this exactly, just an ambiguous tartness/sweetness. It's not blue, but slightly green, and slightly candied.

For the price, it's surely worth trying, knowing that you can have a bottle without much investment, but I cannot add much to the heap of praise. For the money, it's good, but it's a little too congested to be a go-to warm-weather option. Still, it's provocative in its own right.

I'm a new kid in the block, don't know much about fragrances.. But I've smelt a couple of good stuffs, and this is pretty decent. Amazing low budget scent, this fragrance and 360 perry Ellis red for men are often preferred over Aqua do gio in reviews I watched.. And are far cheaper alternatives.

Decent smell, fresh I all I can call it, obviously citrusy(only notes my inexperienced nostrils can pick up) lasts 5-6 hours on my skin. Moderate projection the first 2 hours, and it just close to the skin afterwards. The dry down is pleasant.. My first purchased fragrance.

A light fruity floral that is uninteresting and weakly performing. It has a synthetic ambiance which is exaggerated by the budget-level violet and freesia notes, and these make the whole floral aspect of the fragrance quietly screechy. I had hoped that the woods and musks of the base would eventually make the fragrance a little less screechy and substantially more interesting...

...but no such luck. Boring to the point of annoyance ...righteously discontinued.

The initial citrus impact is quite gentle, and soon develops notions of a mild green with a touch of ozonic notes and with some lotus, the latter appearing a bit contrived in this context. The drydown introduces some woodsy notes that are a bit too generic, with a soft patchouli that us hardly developing on my skin. Silage and projection are limited, but the longevity is quite good at about five hours, although quite faint after the first two. In summary, this is a fresh quite nice scent that not bad at all, albeit a tad generic nut not without the attempt of a twist. Overall a neutral score

Not super original, but a good scent anyways.

This is just so bland. It's not horribly offensive, in fact it could be interesting, but it's just soooo unoriginal, weak, and overall unimpressive.

Wow, this has definitely been reformulated, and for the better. It says discontinued but I scratch my head on that one.

I bought Just Me on the spot in 2006 when it came out because my girlfriend at the time loved the smell on me. We were walking through the mall, tried it, and that's a wrap. I wore it a lot at first, but then I got tired of it. Bought it again some years later and a cheap price, didn't like it at all. Wrote a bad review of it on here.

Recently I read some people saying how great it was, how it smells identical to AdG, but with a more masculine dry down. This sounded different than the Just Me I knew. The one I knew smelled a lot like AdG, but with a bland musky dry down, and a hideous tomato leaf note that smelled like wet farts in the opening/mid.

It appears that either my nose has changed, or the tomato leaf note is gone, and the dry down has become more bold. Either way, I am digging it.

This is very much like a more masculine AdG. There's a metallic thing going on here which I really like about it. The dry down is deeper with woody notes and maybe some patchouli.

Basically this is a slightly darker AdG with better longevity, about the same sillage, and a very cheap price tag. Possibly reformulated too. My review was as harsh as the others who give it a thumbs down.

What a surprise! I have never imagined Paris Hilton making a scent like Just Me. This cologne has a very nice fruity smell, better than Acqua di Giò in my opinion. Lasts a very long time on my skin. Rated with 5 stars!

A really great, inexpensive scent.

There's a bit of "woodiness" in the opening that I'm not fond of. But that fades quickly.

The drydown is VERY nice.

Definately a "younger" scent though.

Just Me actually really surprised me. No, it's nothing new at all, and yes it's a copy cat/morph but for the price you can't beat it! Very similar to Aqua di Gio as others have suggested as well as Burberry Summer(AdG copy with pepper). Top notes scream citrus-lemon(almost like pledge or citronella but not in a negative way) but it mellows out fairly well and the sweetness balances it out in the dry down. Did I mention it's cheap yet? For being reasonably priced, it doesn't have a detracting synthetic smell like most cheap fragrances. Great for everyday wear or whenever you don't want to waste your more expensive stuff. I would say this isn't for anyone above the age of 30, but it is appropriate for teens-mid twenties.

Smells almost exactly like 360 degrees red, just with a touch more fruit. I smell a hint of lemon in the top too for about 5 minutes that isn't in the perry ellis, but besides these factors it is almost exactly the same. Both are great scents in my book!

Other new copy of: Aqua de Gio, 360 Red, more fruity but less floral, overpower, super long-lasting and cheaper.
07th October, 2008
This is a really nice modern EDT that avoids the synthetic, metallic head-hurting freshness of the last decade. Sadly, it isn't terribly original -- its bergamot-heavy crispness is heavily reminiscent of Aqua di Gio, which came out a decade earlier. Its slightly heavier on the floral and fruity elements though -- ever so slightly. The bottom line, though, is that in spite of the dreaded PH brand and an equally dreadful sprayer (that requires you to practically whack it with a hammer -- whereupon it sprays the juice all over like a garden hose), this smells really, really good. There's simply no arguing with that.

WHile this smells pretty good, I would be embarrassed to say what I was wearing subjectively speaking. I'd lie and say I was wearing a Hugo Boss scent, Perry Ellis 360 Red or Aqcua di Gio which are quite similar. A spicy floral (jasmine on top, blue watery notes in the middle and a musky patchouli base) that has character for a few minutes but fades away into oblivion. A safe smelling clone that's slightly different but the longevity is atrocious. Good but could be considered a secret shame.
15th June, 2008
Not bad for the price and a lot better than her other one "PH for Men" Which was awful. This one is safe for everyday use it stays very close to the skin so fine for office work.
22nd April, 2008
Just Me for Men is amazing! And it does not have a watermelon scent at all, that reviewer was most likely confusing it with Paris Hilton for Men. Just Me for Men is a very clean, softly citrus, and mixes very well with your natural scent. Thanks Paris!

Just Me has proven to be a good investment. I found it to be long lasting (when layered with the body wash), not overpowering and I have received many positive comments when I wear it.

The blend of the fresh citrus with the crushed grass and musk make for an interesting combination, and a pleasant, clean scent.

Personally, I find "Just Me" more masculine than the original "Paris Hilton".
30th April, 2007
Just Me for Men does resemble Acqua Di Gio when first sprayed but it is much sweeter with a fruity candy smell after a while (or after a good sweat for me). Overall, it is simply outstanding and it has now replaced my previous 360 degrees red. The only drawback is that it is not very strong and it needs at least 4-5 sprays for longer lasting effect.

Smells a lot like Acqua Di Gio but cheaper and lasts longer.

It STARTS like Acqua Di Gio and changes into something very deep, LOVES it.
23rd October, 2006
This one as opposed to the first Paris for men scent, is not as groundbreaking and is very "safe". Again, not a bad scent at all, a bit sweeter (but not as sweet as PH for men)than regular EDTs for men but this fruityness is very welcomed. It is not the most elegant of scents, but it's fun, it has nice sillage and good lonegvity. Too bad about the sad design of the bottle and the messyness of the spray. But the juice is what's important and its not a bad one, in fact is very nice.

Paris Hilton really knows what she likes her men to smell like! This fragrance is a more masculine reflection of herself. It is rather floral and fruity, but at times smell like boiled candy. This fragrance features a heavy watermelon scent; and unfotunately does not get balance out by any other scent! However, kudos to Paris for trying.
