Carolina Herrera 212 Men Eau de Toilette Spray 100 ml
About this deal
I notice now it also has the Ginger note, which is probably why I like it -- one of my all-time favorites is BLV from BVLgari. Considering it's strictly a daytime fragrance, something for after the gym or something before a nice meeting, it's nice for it not to linger too long and make way for a night out fragrance. A little on the weaker side with recent formulations, at least on the most recent one I purchased a couple of years ago. A very masculine, woody and fresh fragrance from Carolina Herrera that captures the magnetism of New York.
It does not so much remind me of a mowed lawn in saturated green, as sometimes referred to, rather a sweet tea which was brewed using that very grass and a few delicate white flowers.
The green notes here are very unique, I didn't think that a fragrance evoking a blade of grass to my nose would be enjoyable but surprisingly this just works.Throughout the life of this perfume the citrus and lavender never disappear, which makes this a perfect scent for hot climates and sunny days. Unfortunately I have noticed that the reformulations have dropped in intensity and have slight changes in the notes that come through, but I always remember it being intense at first and then dying down a lot after the dry down.
