    for a 'spicy woods fragrance' there is an awful lot of fruit in the mens esprit…

    Yeah, fruit seems to be “the new black” in men's fragrance these days, sorry to say.

    Perhaps the fruit is not so overwhelming in the juice itself? But yes, men's scents are awfully fruity lately too.

    original 212 was this amazing, light but heady scent (hate those clunky pill shaped bottles though) that i used to wear in the summer… but they keep coming up with these substandard flankers. still, it was pretty cool when they did one inside an actual glass bottle (i think it was blue or aqua colored at the time), and since i was about, 15 years old, the aquatic fruit nonsense was appealing to me at the time…

    212 didn't work for me, but know lots of people love it. The first 212 Summer Splash I saw at Sephora & couldn't even figure out how to get it open :-)
