I wore it in my early 20s and still keep a bottle, it was my club scent back then lol. I don't really go clubbing anymore but its still usually the best thing at any event I ware it to, I ware it now just to switch it up from the norm every now and again, I get tons of compliments on it, years later no one seems to know what it is and I like that.i own this and really hate smells so synthetic aluminum, fresh cut lemongrass, not in a good way but 45mins when it settles into your skin it's a whole different scent,it smells great after you let it chill on your skin for a bit but as far as the first sprays it sucks don't let them hype you on this bs like they did me to me not worth the money for just the dry down.Freshly applied on (my) skin, projection is about 30-40 cm.It can be sniffed from that distance for about 30 min - 1 hour. 2 hours it's a skin scent that's almost entirely gone!Needless to say I will not be wearing this anymore ever. Even though there appear to be aspects about it which hint towards perhaps a shower gel. Buyers, please do not hesitate to buy this beauty nature.. My wife can smell it when I'm wearing it from across the room. Scent: 8/10 Longevity: 10/10 Projection: 9/10 Sillage: 9/10 Compliment: 8/10 I have restocked on my bottle of 212 and I just think this juice is underrated in the fragrance community. It's unfortunate others have low to moderate longevity out of this one. It is truly legendary and I will peg it with other modern legends like le male, 1 million and Terre d'hermes. I previously reviewed this and said how it is a nice scent but don't last long.Scent: 5/10 Longevity: 8/10 Projection: 8/10 Compliment factor: 0/10 Purpose: Day time casual wear Season: Spring Season: It is morning, spring. smell, perfomance,lasting is awesome give it a try and let the public nuisance blemish like they always do with other masterpiece's out there. It's one of the few fragrances I have repurchased after running out. Now I've tried using it and it don't last on me and I TYPICALLY hold scents.You are walking in the forest surrounded by grass and trees. I can't say it is a nice scent when it don't last on my skin.
Really good fragrance that gets you lots of compliments.
212 Men by Carolina Herrera is a Woody Floral Musk fragrance for men. 212 Men was created by Alberto Morillas, Rosendo Mateu and Ann Gottlieb.
Top notes are spices, petitgrain, lavender, green notes, grapefruit and bergamot; middle notes are ginger, , gardenia, violet and sage; base notes are labdanum, sandalwood, musk, guaiac wood, vetiver and incense.
There is certainly a lot of lavender in this scent and I can detect a tiny bit of musk. Overall it's a masterful crowd-pleaser that is otherwise generic and boring.
7/10 Very synthetic grassy smell in the opening, dries down to an almost different scent with very soft musk that I love and a hint of green.
