Carolina Herrera in my view has made some gorgeous fragrances, 212 Sexy being no different. What i love about Carolina Herrera is her fragrances are never tested on animals.
212 Sexy is an absolutely gorgeous perfume and works well as a gift or for yourself. It is a strong perfume, that comes in a sexy brownish glass bottle with 212 Sexy labelled on. Unfortunatly i dont believe it lasts very long, usually about 3-5 hours later you cant smell it, which is a shame. I know some people who have said they found it had good staying power, but like i say i am not convinced at this statement. The fragrance is sweet and spicy in the same time, musky with a citrus scent. If you are not into strong perfumes this maybe isnt the one for you, but if you are you really will get something that is unique and doesnt smell like anything else on the market. The perfume certainly smells sexy, and will leave you feeling good about yourself, especially on a night out.
I think the perfume is well suited for ladys from 18-30 on evenings out. I dont think it is one for the office and meeting clients etc, but i think the design of the bottle,box and title isnt really giving that impression anyway. The fragrance can make you full of confidence, making your night out fun and sensual.
212 sexy can be picked up in a range of different sizes 30ml, 60ml and 100ml, but many little tester bottles can be bought on places like Ebay. 30ml bottle will set you back anything around £20 upwards with 100ml going for around £40. 50ml bottle was £32 last time i checked in Debenhams. It isnt the most expensive of perfumes your probably thinking, which given how overly priced many are on the market now is a fair opinion, but it doesnt lack in anything so dont let that put you off. Its lower priced simply because it has been out since 2005, with so many pumped into the market nowadays its these old favourites whos prices get slashed. You can pick this perfume up in a gift set, usually a 30ml bottle with a body lotion for around £25 from Boots. It comes in a tin gift box labelled with 212 Sexy on and a nice inside, with a big bottle of body lotion. The lotion i find is quite greasy, and doesnt soak in very well and has what looks like shimmer powder in. Like mentioned it is more a night out fragrance which is probably why the lotion has these components. I find the lotion and perfume together is far too strong, but the lotion acts as a back up if i run out of the perfume as it holds its smell the same as the fragrance.
The only downside of this perfume is i dont think its lasts long, but it is quite cheap so it doesnt work out that much of a problem, however i think you need a 50ml bottle+ for you to feel like you get value for money. Maybe the fact it is too strong could be seen as a downside but as long as you are careful with how much you use and dont like to over do it you should be fine.
Just a final word here and that is there is a 212 sexy men, which in no way i believe compliments the womens fragrance, such as with the CKin2u perfumes for men and women. The male one spells a lot different to the womens, and personally i dont like it on my man so if you are thinking of buying one each i wouldnt advise you to do that!
