212 Men Carolina Herrera

Today is this months perfume review day :-) And i decided to review one of my most favorite men's perfumes. ;-) 

Are you wondering what fragrances are great for men? Confused on what to buy for your man on his birthday?

Have a look at this perfume and see if its something that your man would love to have.

212 Men Carolina Herrera

Top notes-  spices, petit grain, lavender, green notes, grapefruit and bergamot; 
Middle notes- ginger, green pepper, gardenia, violet and sage; 
Base notes- labdanum, sandalwood, musk, guaiac wood, vetiver and incense.

An elegant silver metallic bottle.. very manly. A bit too heavy to carry around but since men dont carry perfumes with them in their handbags :P its not an issue. The design is very attractive and the lid is magnetic! So you just hold the lid close to its bottle and its just clicks on. How sexy :-)

Its a very clever design.. and very convenient.

The fragrance -

The fragrance like its bottle is very manly and very strong.. a very strong sporty fragrance. A man's perfume so boys please stay away. Something that lasts all day long! The smell doesnt fade at all!! I wouldnt recommend it for daily use unless you're someone who loves to draw too much attention to yourself. Perfect for night time use especially during special occasions.  

What i have here is a gift set -

It comes in a really nice silver metallic box and inside you get the perfume and a shower gel. 

The shower gel smells divine :-) just like the perfume but much more stronger and concentrated. It has a watery texture so you have to be careful when pouring it out onto the loofah. A little goes a long way.. so just a few drops and then you will smell fresh all day. The bathroom will smell of your perfume all day too :P

The perfume and the shower gel both have a long lasting fragrance.. the perfume stays on your clothes even after one machine wash!! So careful how much you spray onto your clothes.

Will i recommend?

A perfect gift for your man :-) He will definitely love it unless of course he doesnt agree with strong scents. Give it a try and let me know ;-)

Have a Pink Day :-)


  1. I have used it, yeah I know it's meant for men but id id. and loved to use...but again... just the frgrance which left me asking for more... :)

  2. The notes sound interesting. I have used the women's version which was ok but I'm sure the labdanum and vetiver mixed in the base would be interesting to sniff.

  3. it sound good ya, i like mens fragrance :)

  4. @ Shoppingaholic & Vanity - didnt know girls use mens perfumes :P nice!

    @ Pandora's Box - Never tried the womens version.. maybe i should :)
