Thread: Dirty English?

  1. #1

    Default I liked Dirty English, what is similar to it?

    I just got a bottle of Dirty English by Juicy Coutore as a christmas gift, and I like the combination of smoky notes, incense and woods, sort of like a mashup of Gucci Envy, Pour Homme and an autumn campfire. My problem is that I'm afraid I might be anosomic to something in it, because I feel that contrary to almost every review here it simply doesn't project well at all. It smells great, and I can detect it 10 hours later if I stick my head down my shirt but to me it doesn't feel like it has much presence. My female coworkers all liked it but they could only smell it once they got up so close their noses were almost on my collar. Granted, if this scent encourages women to get that close to me on a regular basis, I'll keep a few bottles handy lol

    So, what smells similar to it on the market? A smoky, ambery woody oriental with incense?

    Tommy Bahama for Men reminded me of Dirty English except Dirty English seemed sweeter. I should point out that I sprayed Dirty English from a little sample atomizer that I had so I may not have gotten the full force of what the fragrance was all about. You can try out Tommy Bahama for Men at any department store.

    Try spraying liberally (8+) and see if your female coworkers see a difference. I felt the same way when i did the standard 2-3. But anyways, I find 2 Man by Comme Des Garcons quite similar. Sample first, however if you do

    DE is a surprisingly good designer scent. I have worn it a few times and enjoy the confusing opening it employs. Good and gritty.

    I don't recall anything smelling very similar to this juice.....especially anything designer. The scent lasts a few hours on me with moderate projection and low sillage. When I like a scent that isn't as strong as I'd like, I just carry an atomizer with me to reapply when needed.

    I have wore this scent and thought it was very skin hugging buy when I came contact with others they all complemented on my fragrance -

    You may be right. Maybe the initial blast causes quick fatigue, because I get the same effect as you. My wife can still smell it long after I cannot.

    To me it is kind of similar to Ungaro III.

    Tested Calvin Klein Man yesterday (came in a CK coffret). Same nose punching smoke/incense opening. Smells a bit sharper than DE and lasts quite long.

    I sampled DE on paper & to my nose it reminded me of V&R Antidote

    I have to agree with that, it has all the similarities you like from DE. However, it is slightly less sweet to my nose and a bit more citrus. Overall great longevity and average sillage IMO.

    Amongst the fragrances in my drobe I've still been trying to find an appropriate time / mood to feel like grabbing DE. No dought its a good designer fragrance though.
    I've owned Cuiron by Helmut Lang, and dare I say this is the poor-man's Cuiron?

    Default Dirty English?

    Was in TJ Maxx this morning and there was a 100ml bottle of this factory sealed. It was only $24.99 so I was tempted as a blind buy. I didn't in the end but having read some reviews I may go back tomorrow morning. I do like unusual fragrances and enjoy Bvlgari Black and although it is "full on" by all accounts I may have a (very) few occasions where it may fit the bill. What do you reckon?

    I wouldn't get it unless it is the original version. I've read that it was reformulated badly. The label on the bottom of the bottle should say Juicy Couture, and not EA Fragrances or something else, in order for me to have any interest. I haven't worn in it a long time because it's missing some things I now consider essential, but I might change my mind about it at some point.

    Thank you. I will go back, but if it hasn't got the JC sig i'll leave it.

    They reformulated Juicy Couture? It was only out for 3 years! I love this one and for $25, it's a steal! Very unique and smells like a more expensive cologne than it is. Read my review about it. It's the one that talks about James Bond and motorcycles and stuff.

    I may just take a chance. It will most likely still be there as I am in Naples FLA (Gods waiting room!). I can't imagine Dirty English will be flying off the shelves...

    When you do buy it, keep it and treasure it b/c it's discontinued and was a scent that died to young.

    I've also seen a couple of bottles of Dirty English popping back up lately at both TJ Maxx & Marshall's. They used to always have smaller bottles, then it was gone, and now the 100ml bottles are showing up. It's a good scent if you like woody/incense/leathery types of scents. (another cheapie at these stores that's very similar is Tommy Bahama original, in the brown bottle). The two scents are pretty close & both kind of remind me of cheaper versions of Gucci Pour Homme 1.

    OK, you've made my mind up guys. For $25 it has to be worth it. Thank you!

    ^ This would be worth it at $50, or more. Great frag - it has impressed some fairly finicky noses on BN. I bought the full range - even the deodorant and shower gel.

    I only hope that Juicy comes out with a new men's that's just as distinctive. They're not a house that can really afford a big men's lineup, so I understand the discontinuation, but still. They could make up for it with another ballsy men's like Dirty English.

    Very interesting scent. I would sample it first if possible.

    Discontinued? Must be another rumor, non the less, Dirty English is great. It doesn't go unnoticed. It might appear from time to time that it lacks longevity and projection but that's not the case at all.

    Unpleasant top notes, I found it lacking in projection and couldn't get over the fact that it shared some notes with the dreaded Eternity for men. Bottle I found tacky too. All in all this one was not for me.

    I love Dirty English. I wear it in the winter. $25 is a good deal.

    Someone will have a problem with this comparison but DE reminds me of Serge Lutens Fille en aiguilles.
