    Default Clive Christian X - Ballin Vintage Coca-cola?

    I just bought a 50ml of clive christian X for men, I thought it smelled amazing. The only thing though, is that it smells almost like vanilla coke to me. Maybe its the way my skin chemistry works? (i naturally smell vanilla-y / baby powdery...) But its a really nice smell though, as if its a super-high end super sexy bottle of spicy vanilla coke with all organic rare exotic ingredients with some pure cocaine (like they had it in coke in the old days...) lol~

    Does anyone else get the same vibe / smell from this or is it just me?

    I wouldn't know. I have never smelled vintage Coca Cola. But I don't get vanilla nor baby powder. Are you sure you didn't get X for Women by accident?

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing (as I have never tried X for Women). If we are talking about X for Men, then the answer is not at all.

    It's a great fragrance IMO and glad I own it.

    Ha! Yes - very expensive stale coke that dries leaving a trace of oakmoss and (probably expensive) musk.

    Though I still like it.

    Though if you let it dry on glass - rather than on skin - you're left with a lovely tobacco accord.

    I have it on right now and it smells nothing like coca cola to me. It is warm peppery/cinnamon/vanilla/amber scent. Nothing bubbly or sugary about it.

    I love this one...especially the dry down. I'm not getting a vintage coke vibe from this fragrance either.
