A high quality fragrance built for multiple uses. Only downside is that it's a bit sharp and "perfumey" at first spray, but definitely masculine with intriguing notes which include the famous watermelon note. Women absolutely adore it and it though it's distinctive, always receives positive attention in any situation. A winner for sure.
Chic For Men by Carolina Herrera, 2004
It is fresh dense and woody without being aggressive. I didn't have any problems at all with the bottle, I thought it was nice though a bit overdone. The scent for me was far too safe, generic, and lacking personality. It smells similar to D&G the One. I had high hopes for this one but those types of scents are not my style. I might have liked them a few years ago but now they're too sweet and soft. It smells like synthetic orange and watermelon with some sweet spices and freshness. 7.5/10
Amazing fragrance. Woody, spice, dense without agressivity. Resume: Chic
The scent is great, however the bottle is horrible. You have to line up the spray button with the plastic upper shoulder perfectly to spray it. Thumbs down to the bottle designer on this one. Poor job.
Fruity-citrus opening, but not the normal take on citruses start like in other fresh fragrances - this one feels very special cause of watermelon which appears clear and nice surrounded by a slight bitter fruity feeling. Addictive indeed, as other user mentioned. On my skin, this initial feeling stayed more than 2 hours, slowly merging into a spicy & little sweet middle that combined with the fruity notes remained from opening create a beautiful and relaxing aura. The base is very similar to Carolina Herrera for Men and 212 Men base notes, almost like a combination of best notes from each one. A hit in my nostrils guide, above average sillage and longevity and definitely a must have for me. My humble rank 8.8/10.
Thumbs up for sure. This is the easiest scent to use when in the evening through the night. Initially I didn't care too much about it, but after try and buy many scents, of all types and nature, this is by far the most safe in terms of charming, happiness, discrition and other things I can imagine I would say about a perfume. Fruity and musk is what I most think about notes. It is my number 1 from Herrera's, following by Herrera for Men. I´m not a fan of any of the 212 series, and a bit neutral about CH Men.
Fresh, yet a bit dark. At first seems kind of mainstream but quickly develops into something different. Has a sharp note, not cloying so it seems to me as an whole year fragrance. All in all, nice work, thumb up. Update: even though it seems fresh, this scent in fact is also so spicy that it works miracles during cold weather, no matter the fact it is easily worn during hotter periods of the year. Strong, yet so versatile, it's way overlooked in my opinion.
A first airy whiff of citrus and watermelon is enveloped in all its freshness by a mossy and ambery base. There is a certain spicy presence whirling in the air and a stressed dosage of black pepper enhances the masculine trail of amber and woodsy note of the base. A touch of suede tames a bit the prickliness of the spices while smoothing the general masculine atmosphere of tonka and woods. The final development is a sort of lemony-woody, slightly angular kind of smell that becomes more dusty and manly with its spicy temperament although manteins a final certain level of fluidity. The fragrance is dynamic, cool and elegant while soars high in the air with its powerful projection.
Reflects its Name.. Truly Chic! I do prefer lighter and more citrussy scents so it took me sometime before I got used to it and felt its beautiful dry-down on the skin and clothes.
Very fresh watermelon opening that with a touch of amber, cinnamon, pepper, and musk. The watermelon transitions into the heart and still hangs on in the drydown which is the note that's most prominent in this fragrance. Silliage is moderate and longevity on my skin is 6 to 8 hours. I wouldn't classify it as a summer fragrance, more of a spring/fall, but can be worn any time for almost any occasion.
