    Save your money for something else, Crusher. If I own it, I would give it to you and also pay for the shipping... seriously. So NO.

    Girls like this frgrance because it smells aquatic, fresh and clean.teenagers love that stuff and when u throw a trendy clothing store there going to goble it up like crazy. It smell like anyotherfresh teen fragrance. It reminds me of eternity by Ck for men I hear the summer one is good if not that then legend.
    Any opinions I post here about frags only reflect MY PERSONAL TASTE and only my personal preference which could change at any moment.

    Definitely agree on this. Mont Blanc is cheaper and smells just slightly different though better. You can smell the A&F stores a mile away and I don't like it! But Mont Blanc smells great.

    yupp

    But fierce isn't bad. It is a safe blind buy. But 120 can get you a lot of different things

    I own this fragrance, and it is my least-used fragrance. Definitely regretted buying it. While the top notes are great, a headache-inducing metallic note quickly reveals itself, forcing me to wash it off in order to function properly for the rest of the day.

    It smells very good, and most people seem to really love this scent. Whether or not it is worth 120 dollars depends on your budget, but it's an extremely safe blind buy just going by smell.

    Here's the long and short of it;

    If you like Eternity, Acqua di Gio, Bleu de Chanel, Chrome, Cool Water, L'eau d'Issey, etc (and despite the impression you might get on this board to the contrary, there's nothing wrong, stupid, or uneducated with liking any of those) you'll probably dig Fierce as well. It shares that sort of same "nothing daring, safe, clean, and well accepted" vibe that make the aforementioned ones so popular. There's nothing that I can perceive in it that would be offensive to anyone (save some fragrance snobs ), and if I could describe it with three words it would be: Trendy, pleasant, and safe.

    If that sounds like something you'd be into, shop around a bit and go for a blind buy. However, if you've got a bit of a daring nose, and are already into niche, I won't say that you'll find it to be bad (because it's not), you just might find it disappointing, or not as good as the hype.

    If you do end up getting it, let us know what you think, and how it's received.

    Fierce is excellent for $50. Fierce is not excellent enough for $120. You can buy Platinum Egoiste for cheaper than that and it smells 90% similar.

    Crusher im from Brisbane and ive had Fierce for about a year now and it works great in our weather, and like you said it would be a rare frag here in Oz. But like others have mentioned, Platinum Ego smells quite similar and also better IMO.

    Its funny because I tested Legend again on my skin and I got PE..which is mentioned here with Fierce and then the drydown was a better Fierce.

    Did you find the projection and longevity was as good as fierce?

    I'm from sydney and I have a decant of it. To me I've only worn it once and it's okay, to me I get a very curve vibe. I think that's another fragrance that didnt hit here in Australia because I've never seen it... either that or it was before my time.

    I have heard quite a few people say PE smells like a higher quality Fierce, which led me to blind buying PE. Although I can see why people would say this I honestly don't think they smell enough alike that I would tell someone who likes Fierce to go try PE because its a better version. And I prefer Fierce over PE if I was going to wear one or the other.

    Are people comparing Curve for men to Fierce saying they are similar in scent, or if you like that type of fragrance you are likely to appreciate Fierce?

    I received my sample of Curve last night, not particularly impressed with it ive got to say, smells like cheap body spray or Adidas body wash.

    Anyway Johno from above has now sent me a sample of Fierce to try so im not going to have to blind buy which I really appreciate! Will report back with what I think

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've since tried it again at lunch time and its growing on me now, its a clean soapy scent which isnt what I was expecting from the Notes people voted for which I think is what put me off initially. I was expecting a fruity pineapple scent.

    I did however accidentally spill the entire 1ml sample on my wrist so im probably experiencing better sillage than most lol. Despite this its not overpowering or offensive in the slightest. However I don't have any left now to test the staying power of a sensible amount. It doesn't seem like longevity would be great at this stage
