    Default Carolina Herrera 212 Men

    I'm intriqued by this fragrance, mainly because i've heard it described as 'flowery,musky'( if so,i'll probably love it)..and 'like temple incense'. I want lovers of this fragrance to give me their opinions. I've just ordered this blind.....but i just know i'll love it............i hope!

    oh btw, i would prefere if you DON'T like this..NOT to post, mainly because i don't want negative thoughts impinging on my mind before recieving it. Scent reviews are very suggestive and can make you think you smell a note that wasn't there before reading it

    Thanks

    I smell a lot of green tea leaves and moss, with a hint of a nice sweet smell at the basenotes. And I like it.

    This is my "default" scent when I can't choose anything else. I love it.

    There is a certain muskiness/woodsiness especially in the drydown that is really wonderful - I'm not so sure of "flowery" but that may just be me. There's also great spice in the topnote that's fresh and invigorating.

    I think it's a fantastic work scent. Clean, but with definite character. I just bought a new 1 OZ bottle at Kohl's. It is not a scent that disappears or fades into the backgound.

    I think a good comparison, although they smell nothing alike, is Guerlain Vetiver. Just concerning the uniqueness and character/purpose of the scent. It stands on it's own like Vetiver does. Great with a dress shirt and tie.

    Smells like fresh grass. Newly mowed fresh grass, with an incense vibe.
    Like CK Truth with a heavier incense/musk/cedar feel. Like a "thicker" version of Truth. Powdery, actually. A fresh green talc.

    Good for Spring or Summer nights.

    Smells familiar and safe, but not too common.

    Casual and romantic. Great bottle.

    I find that most of the time, people here actually don't read the first post, or any other post for that matter. I too am interested in this frag.

    I like it fine. The green opening notes are truely yummy and nothing creates a mental image of summer for me like this one. Sandalwood creaminess in the base which make it definately more interesting than all the other department store greens out there.

    I would have to agree with the person who made the comparison with CK Truth but slightly thicker, heavier (maybe the presence of that incense note?). Definitely a scent that I would consider 'rediscovering'.

    LOL.....that made me think of kelly's Heroes. Not to worry eluard, i have the coffret set in front of me now.

    Hmmm, a very strong blast of 'green' on initial application ( don't think i'd wear this during hay-fever season). Somewhat like a cross between lanvin l'homme and body kouros. I think of 'allotments' and 'herbal cultivation' while sniffing this.

    Quite a pleasent clean scent. This would be perfect for someone who isn't in to fragrancies as such. As it is, my tastes tends towards rich citrus/florals...but have always been interested in this 212...and since i couldn't find any samples and being incredibly rich , i thought, 'what the hell i'll just purchase a set'....still for £25 not a bad fragrance at all...don't think i'll wear it often though, probably give this to my young nephew who recently passed a few exams
