URBAN Body Spray
Hygiene and smelling as if you're well cleansed in some manner, (even if it isn't the case) gives the impression you well cleansed. twice a day preferably - albeit, work permitting, you'll get time off to do your cleansing duties. Usually, the opportunity and time constraint disables a thorough half an hour soak, every active six hours. Instead men, tend to take a quicker route to get the same cleansing effect; and that is by spraying oneself amorously with a favourable deodorant that is beefy enough to cater for underlining musk of l'eau de naturalle. FCUK Urban body spray is robust enough to fulfil its duty on the most active of men.
Initially, I felt FCUK products indulged a feminine trait in within its; 'design' 'fragrance' and 'durability' - the three main areas, while choosing an effective male deodorant. I say design because men will not buy anything that doesn't convey masculinity; secondly, the fragrance, it must denote an identifiable maleness. Spices generally cajole in male products. Unisex, fragrances can be short-lived (shelf-life wise) due to their lack of credible gender identity. Successful unisex scents are purely based on brand alone, rather than the actual scent qualities.
'Urban' doesn't smell of 'Urban' - the city nor Keith.
Unlike Keith Urban the Country and Western singer; 'FCUK Urban' is designed as a phallic symbol, the nozzle head has a protective plastic cover, an ergonometric mould, with a mildly amusing curvature finish - evidently for the male. I did make several attempts to remove the clear plastic cover thinking it was a cap. However, the giveaway sign is that the nozzle has been sneakily crafted into the cover function. A unique selling point certainly, not that it will make much difference to a potential purchaser. It doesn't hinder the trajectory of the spray - nor can you vary the length of the spray via pressure on the head (plastic cover). One thing the FCUK Urban does have in common with Keith Urban is when activated the sound they make isn't unpleasant.
Irritations; the blocked informative text graphics, in differing fonts, designed as if laminate flooring, Piet Mondrian style. The embossed 'fcuk'; gyrates against my consciousness, even touching the embossed brand name, makes me wonder - why? Ascetically, it cheapens the product. There is an 'fcuk' logo already on the 'Mondrian-esque' label - brand overkill 'extraordinaire'. It boasts of high performance and durability, notably I ponder where this line of advertising is going? Next it'll be boastful of 'fcuk's spray (ejaculation) length.
Duration is a plus, I can't fault the potency of the scent, and it does last for a good 36 hours on your skin, obviously depending on your environment and what activities you're participating in. Generally, the strength of the fragrance gives the impression your fresh, when in realist terms you could do with a proper soak. The standard operation of having the canister a 15 - 20 cm away from the flesh deodorant policy applies while in use. And of course do not use in close proximity to a naked flame, due to the amount of Alcohol Denat in the ingredients. This makes 'Urban' extremely flammable. Now I'm not saying it may spontaneously combust but the likelihood of this happening in direct sunlight is a far greater chance of that occurring than if Keith Urban did. Heaven forbid. It'll be a dreadful loss for Country and Western song lovers.
Scent: Of course everyone smells fragrances differently; I'm not a big fan of posting scent note variants - due to the fact they're not accurate by a long stretch: for a basic scent analysis. 'FCUK' is not wrong in claiming the 'Urban' has a citrus scent, along with spicy herbs, amber and ends off with a palatable lingering muskiness - which is the signature of a male scent. In regards to expense, the 'fcuk' range tends to occupy the higher end of the price spectrum. Mine was a gift, but you can expect to pay 3.50 GBP and upwards for a canister of 200 ml - personally, it is not worth the price and it is far too brand orientated as a product as a whole. Functionally, 'Urban' is unquestionably effective and delivers on durability slightly better than cheaper deodorant/body sprays. I don't wear 'Urban' daily. I'm an intermittent user. Overall: I prefer the fragrance 'Urban' to the Country and Western 'Urban'.
FCUK body spray comes in a 200ml spray can , boasting high performance , long lasting and deoderising body spray. It classes its scent as a mixture of spices and woods, lightend with orange citrus. My first thoughts on this statement is that how can a deodrent be high performance, it does come out of the can at a high speed but so do all its competitors, i do however agree with it being long lasting as it can last you through the work day easily and it is a good deodrent.
The can is a shiny silver , embossed with the FC on the front and UK on the back, the front of the can carrys a small description on the scent, size and ability. The description carrys over to the back with a list of ingrediants , safety warnings and barcode.
The top of the can has a twist function to move the small space over the spray hole, and a small logo on the top of the spray to show this. The top is clear and has small grips on the side to turn it easier, the spray is quite difficult to get out as its not just aim and push , you need to put your finger right at the bottom of the lid and push in, this is confusing as the lid has a finger indent right from the center going down , and this does nothing.
The smell of this deodrent is supposed to be woods , spices and lightend with orange. I thought well this is the usual over used description where its a lot of expected smells, i was surprised to strangely find it has all those sort of smells. When you first spray it you have a woody smell which is quite pleasent and then you start to smell it changing and losing the overpowering smell of wood with a sweet smell of orange and spices. Reading this back i guess i now sound like im talking rubbish but it does really happen and its so odd.
When you do manage to get it out of the can , the application is very smooth , its not harsh on your skin and does feel nice to spray. Some other deodrents can be hard against your skin on impact but this feels quite soothing.
Unfortunatley i recieved this as a gift box for christmas and cant really say how much it would be , looking at its competitors i would imagine its around the £2 mark and can be bought in the usual boots,asda etc. The gift box also contained a shower gel , so that is another review to come.
A very nice fragrence and application , i just think the spray system needs to be changed but apart from that its long lasting and worth the money , Its also a little bit better than the lynx spray as this just has a little more class.
This is one of those deodrants that smells like it should cost a lot more than it actually does. It is similar to my favourite deodrant which is from the Charles Worthington range and similarly it was very favourite considering the expensive smell.
Normally this costs around £3 which compared to the average deodrant is more expensive, but if you wait around you will see good 2 for 1 offers like I did, so effectively getting a can of this deodrant for £1.50 which is a bargain.
I would say that the smell is a cirtus masculine type of scent. Saying that though I find it very hard to describe smells and am sure many people just make up whatever sounds right, so it is best to look at the description which says it has an invigorating cirtus herbal with amber and musk. Not really sure what the last two words mean, but what I can say is that it smells rich. Anyone who catches you with this on would sure think you have put on some expensive designers deodrant or aftershave, and well I guess FCUK is designer, although obviously of the cheaper kind.
In terms of how long it lasts, again like with the smell I am not going to lie to you. After a min or so I become accustomed to the fragrance after putting it on, so can never tell to be honest how long it lasts, although I imagine a few hours or so.
I would recommend this for social occasions. Not for sport, for active stuff like that I recommend adidas or something a bit more designed towards that area. This is definitely a good choice for a date, although like with anything don't go over the top when spraying it on, as too much deodrant can be worse than having no deodrant at all.
FCUK do produce quality products, and this deodrant is another example of this. Mixed in with a good aftershave this is an excellent product for going out and at £1.50 on offer is an absolute steal. Go and buy it now.
When I shop for my toiletries I usually buy them in Boots as I find they have some great offers and I also like to use my Boots Advantage card with my purchase. A while back I decided to change from my usual Adidas or Lynx to choose something different. I saw this FCUK deodorant on offer along with a few other products from the FCUK Brand. I was instantly attracted by the look of the can and the slightly higher price did not put me off. I requested this to be put up on Dooyoo and here's my review.
FCUK Urban is just one of the number of fragrances in the FCUK range for Men. Others include Sport, 1972, and Copper which I also own and will also be reviewing, at a later date. There's quite an interesting story about my experience of the FCUK Urban body spray and that is. I noticed that my mate was wearing a nice smelling deodorant and the next time I was in Boots I picked up this one and it happened to be the fragrance my mate was wearing which I was unaware of what it was.
When I first smelt this fragrance I was hooked and although did not ask my mate what the fragrance was I was fortunate enough to stumble upon it in after I picked it up in Boots. I usually buy Lynx or Adidas which are quite fresh smelling deodorants so I was looking for the same kind of scent with this one. I was not at all dissapointed, In fact I was delighted. Spray this under your arms and you will instantly get the freshness of the citrus scent and you will also smell a slightly musky scent which adds a different touch.
This fragrance is available in Boots for about £3.71 for a 200ml bottle which is quite expensive compared to fragrances from the likes of Adidas, Gillette and Lynx but in this case you really get what you pay for. Luckily there are some great deals on offer on FCUK products like 3 for 2 on all products which will certainly help and may tempt you into stocking up on a couple cans of the deodorant so you have one for when the first one runs out or
you could have two different ones if you wanted.
For most people one thing that is As important as how a deodorant smells is how long it lasts and I can safely say that this is one of the best I have tried for lasting a long time. After using it in the morning I could still smell it rather well late at night. It's versatility will leave you with great protection against odour whether you are playing sports or just wearing it during a day at work. You can really smell the citrus with the herbal musky feel which goes together superbly well all throught the day.
This may be a bit more expensive than your usual deodorant but if you like to try new products then give this one a go and you should not be dissapointed. This has everything, a great smell, good odour protection and it's long lasting, what more could you want in a deodorant?, If you have used other FCUK products in the past then you should know about their quality. Next time you are in Boots give this deodorant a chance by picking up a tester and spraying a little bit. You should be very pleased.
