    Default Paris Hilton and eternity Summer

    One never ceased to be surprise, when there are goodies hidden among the common scents!

    I never tried Paris Hilton for men for pretty much the same reason as everyone here. It turns out to be a really good one. Good diffusion and longevity plus a really nice summery scent! The fruity notes reminds me of Polo Black - actually I think they are very similar but after it drysdown, theres a 'burning' sweetness that is very much like Fahrenheit's topnotes. Some people hated that accord which they think is inspired by the petrol station. Personally that is the single accord I love, and this PH for men is the only scent to have captured it on the drydown - its absolutely beautiful!

    Theres one problem with this scent though, maybe its too strong - when I sniff my wrist (where I spray it) it has a pee-note in it, sort of like ammonia. Maybe its only me, but MI and Emporio Armani White does that to me as well. However, when I caught the scent a feet away, its just beautiful!

    Eternity Summer is another one to have surprised me today. I thought its a lighter version of the 'worn-to-death' Eternity. Its completely different. It is L'eau di Issey without the woody basenotes. Maybe its a tad feminine because I can detect a very distinct floral note - but its different.

    Between these 2 I will choose Paris Hilton, but the bottle is so generic and bears the name an amateur pornstar - do they sell splash version of this juice? I want to pour them into an empty spray bottle. If Paris Hilton can make such a nice scent why can't all the perfume houses do it? Thats a puzzle to me...

    Yes, the Paris Hilton scent is surprisingly good.
    But I think it unfair to refer to her as an amateur pornstar - instead, she just had the misfortune of being betrayed by an unscrupulous, money hungry cad.

    Ok, I am a little harsh there for calling her a pornstar, but she is famous because of those tapes. She seems like a nice person just being a little too naive. However, she has good taste in perfume! Compared to Sarah Jessica Parker, JLo and other countless celebrities trash output in the scent department, Paris Hilton is heading in the right direction. I have no doubt she likes Fahrenheit and proposed a fruity scent with Fahrenheit embedded within to the perfumer.

    Does anyone knows who the perfumer was?

    While Sarah Jessica Parker actually blended her own scents...

    I honestly think someone offered Paris 20 fragrances to pick from, and she just picked one that she thought "smells HAWT"

    I thought the Sarah Jessica Parker one (Lovely?), unlike the others, got heaps of rave reviews.

    Anyhow, thanks for your thoughts on Eternity Summer. Basically, I've never smelled an Ete, Summer, light, fresh etc version of a scent that I liked much - so I've walked past Eternity Summer dozens of times without smelling it. I'll be rectifying that now.

    Perhaps it's just me but I found Eternity Summer quite similar to Kenneth Cole Reaction, which I already have and enjoy.

    They're both good, but my wife told me there's no way I'm ever going to wear a scent called Paris Hilton. She's (my wife, not Paris) the boss!

    Eternity Summer 2006 smells great, but could be a little much if over-applied.
    My wife hated it.

    Since my wife likes my other 35 scents and supports my habit, I'll give in on these 2. My wife is very easy-going and normally not very assertive, but Paris gets her blood boiling!

    If not for her, I'd probably own them both, definitely the Paris.

    I have to make an amendment to Paris Hilton for men review above.

    I took a hot shower - the hot water evaporated the scent on my wrist which I had sprayed on for more than 6 hours ago (yes the scent is still going strong, remarkable longevity!) somehow the heat from the water turns the scent into Polo! I kept sniffing my wrist, exactly like the original Polo! How can Fahrenheit smells like Polo?

    My equation is Fruity notes + Polo = Fahrenheit.

    Does anyone smell Polo or Fahrenheit in PH for men? Or am I going crazy??

    Now you got me confuse, because Eternity Summer doesn't smell anything like Reaction. Maybe I tried the women's version? I wasn't paying much attention when I grab the bottle from the shelf. It smells really feminine to me - Renato, if its really Eternity Summer for men that I had sampled, I know you won't like it. I've read your post for years and I know you prefer masculine scents.

    Alright, someone else who admits Eternity Summer '06 isn't that bad. I myself don't see much of a comparison to Reaction either. I find it kinda grassy/floral.

    She recieves half of the gross profit made from any sale of her sex tape. That's a porn star.

    I own (and love!) both Eternity Summer and KC Reaction. I think they're both in the same "genre" of scents....but I think they're both pretty different. Eternity Summer reminds me more of Polo Blue, than KC Reaction. Perhaps it's just my nose, lol.

    I got Eternity Summer the other day as a gift. Have to say i quite like it. What really surprised me was that i could still faintly detect it on my wrists the next day which is very unusual in my experience for such a fresh fragrance.

    Actually she got $400,000 and a certain percentage for the tape by sueing her ex and she donated all of it to charity.


    Ughh you guys are lucky, PH for men just fades right off me in minuets and gives me a bad headache.

    I like both of those scents. Though I do not like ES enough to warrant buying a bottle. Paris Hilton on the other hand is some really really good stuff that I have owned before, and look forward to another bottle!

    Paris Hilton or any other pseudo-celebrity will never make a cent off of me, no matter how good any perfume bearing their name might be. You have to draw the line somewhere. Now if only Bob Pollard of Guided By Voices non-fame ever made a perfume...what a fracas that would be

    I totally disagree with your comment about "trash output." SJP Lovely is, IMHO a really great scent as is, say, J. Lo Still

    I completely agree with you that the top notes of Paris Hilton for men and Polo Black appear exteremly similar..i noticed the similarity when i recently bought Polo Black...though Polo Black seems to have 'mango' and Paris Hilton seems to have 'watermelon', they smell quite alike...i feel that Polo Black is a little sharp and Paris Hilton is subtle...I absolutely love both of them though to get the best out of them you need to constantly reapply them....

    As far as the name behind Paris Hilton for men, it doesn't really matter to me..whats important is to smell good..and this one does make me smell good..yes if the bottle of any scent is good aswell it adds to the whole experience...and if you really detest Paris Hilton so much you can always get a decent size atomiser and spray the whole bottle into the atomiser :-)
    So much to get rid of Paris Hilton!!!!

    I think that PHfor Men fragrance is very nice, it must be one of the best fruity scents for men out there and also, it's very much a child of these times.
    The fact that it's very fruity makes it a bit more interesting than some other lame attempts at creating a truly enjoyable new fragrance.
    I get more melon and mango(the ripe,sweet one) than watermelon, and there's definitely some other "water fruits" and even some flowers in it... now why would i fight something that lasts a decent amount of time, it has a nice sillage, it's very pleasant and it's just to bad at all? The name?
    If it were poured into a (insert respected frag brand here) bottle, it would be almost universally loved, and that, i think, it's a bit sad, but i understand that hatred is part of human nature too.
    I hate the bottle and the packing , for sure, i was never friends with the celebrity name or even the "let's-make-a-celebrityscent-cause-it's-in" thing either.
    As much as i didn't want to like the smell of it, i liked it, a lot.

    To sum it all up, i think it's not bad; she got lucky (she could have gotten a bad perfumer) ; and she picked the right smell too (because as Rashkae said, she picked one out of many samples presented to her -dunno if she said "that's hawt",but i'm guessing she did).


    ...And I like Eternity summer as well.!

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but not much of a fan of either.
