Every time I smell Sex Appeal, the image of working class comes to my mind. It is a simple, modest and very nostalgic perfume with rather complex nuances of green, spicy and ambery notes. It is complex as well as simple at the same time and this is the only aspect of Sex Appeal which is appealing to me.
Don't be fooled by its name, there is no sex appeal in it. Apr steve My review is of a vintage 70s bottle the one in the thick frosted glass bottle I'm a fan. It's smooth, like the vintage Jovan Musk Oil for Men and subtly spicy, without being overwhelming. Honestly, I see how this is an attractive fragrance, as it does seem to have a bit of sensuality about it.
It doesn't matter to me if this is a 70s fragrance or not, because I'm happy to have it and happy to wear it. You need to go easy with it -too much and it can become overwhelming very quickly. I apply a single swipe with a fingertip on my arm for wear. Apr aspirina I got this for my husband.
But, this is going to be mine. This is strikingly reminiscent of the bottle of Opium that my mother had when I was child. A lot softer but very similar. I just found a gem in the men's room! This is also similar to Youth Dew but a lot more wearable. Still, this is mine.
Feb Bigsly Want a "super cheapo" version of Ambre Sultan type scents? This might work for you! To be sure, it has a "chemical tinge," as someone else stated, and for some people that might never dissipate, though it seems to be strongest at first. Anyway, it's syrupy, sweet, and more or less unisex so long as a bit of a lavender note doesn't bother you.
What else is there to say? It's not especially complex, and it lasts well, though projection is not monstrous. I wish I was a big amber scent fan, but I prefer this quality in a supporting role. Dec PercivalGoldstone I wanted to like it but it's not very natural smelling; definitely has a chemical tinge. Nov Escoteric I purchased this as it had the words sex appeal written and the marketing hype was about pheromones and androgens, I guess it was the precursor to ISO E polymers and were streets ahead of the game, but the scent was horrible.
I guess it must give of pheromones of I am rich, virile, and a go getter with healthy DNA to pass on. Sep Br'eauDeCologne I can't speak for others. It's cologne, so longevity is only average. Sillage is moderate-plus at first, so go easy on the trigger if you'll be wearing this to the office or other confined quarters.
This gets a big thumbs up in my book. Stupidly, the cheesy name turned me off taking the plunge on this for years. I didn't know what to expect. But how would I actually know for myself until I tried it. Glad I finally did. This is a winner for me and absolutely unbeatable for the price, especially if you like those vintage "manly" scents.
I thought it was hilarious that my grandma got me a bottle of cologne called "Sex Appeal. It smelled like weasel urine or something. I was a Drakkar boy then and that gave me plenty enough sex appeal. Once my buddy and I were smoking cigars in his mom's car and he wanted to cover the smell. He took some of the Sex Appeal and poured it into the air vent and he accidentally poured too much. The car reeked of Sex Appeal for years, lol. Better make sure this is really working with your body chemistry and your not just putting it on because you think something is better than nothing, since that isn't always the case.
You're probably better off with just about anything else than Sex Appeal. Apr orestes Much much better than pierre cardin cologne,much better! Apr romansandals Satisfies your craving for a classic seventies scent. Although it is an edC, I still get 8 hrs with impressive projection. Very similar to Old Spice but much better performance. For less than 8 bucks on ebay for 3 oz.
