I got this fragrance for christmas a couple of years ago, and I am just about finished wioth the bottle. But then I dont use aftershaves (I going to call them this from now on as thats what im used to) that much, I sepecially dont see the need to use aftershaves at work. So it will last a long time and I cant say if his is a normal or not.
The smell of this aftershave is quite potent and strong compared to others I have like Armani code, the smell doesnt creap up on you slowly. No, this one really does hit you quick, and although this doesnt sound desirable, the smell is actually really nice. Its distinctly manly smelling, I wouldnt say it smells fresh or fruity, Id say it smells more like a herb or fern with its smell amplified, Im not doing a great job at this, but it works the smell is very distinctive, and when I wear it allot of people ask me what it is.
The bottle is very distinctive as well as they often are as the marketing that goes into the products is quite remarkable. The bottle itself is think glass, the aftershave is green (green with envy which Ive only just realise !), the glass has been carved out nicely and look classy and is thick, so if you drop it as I have many times then your covered. On top fo the glass bit you have a silver spray mechanism that is you find on most aftershaves.
The other half of the bottle is just black plastic that acts as a cover for the spray mechanism, as this ishalf the bottle then yuo can say that the lid is very big. but the bottle is just 50 mls. The hard resin black plastic is hollowed out to cover the rest of the bottle is very light, but the glas makes up about 90% of the weight.
The only problem is that the little plastic tube that is supposed to go to one corner of the bottle, doesnt. so when you get right down to the bottom as I have just done, I will have to accept the fact that I wont be able to completely finish the bottle, this is slightly annoying.
You can get a 50 ml bottle for aorund £38, and it hasnt really deappreciated much in the few years that it has been around.
Gucci Envy is a really fine fresh fragrance that will have you smelling good no matter what you are doing on a night out and how long it lasts.
This product comes with a quite a big black lid and in a rectangle shape bottle and is distinctive by its green tinge to the after shave. I have used this after shave on a number of of occassions and always been well complimented. Gucci are known for their style and sophistication in terms of their brand. They pride themselves on being at the higher end of the market and in terms of class this eau de toilette does not let them down in keeping up their reputation.
To elaborate on that because you smell so good it will give you the confidence to dance the night away and go and chat to girls if thats your thing. From my own experience I know that this is not the only thing that is going to keep someone interested however when you are at the bar making jokes and trying to make yourself sound as interesting as possible one of the things that helps is to smell nice and this does the trick for me.
The smell itself has a real zing to it because of its freshness and strong smell. I find it is quite an alluring fragrance and reminds me of the scent of freshly cut grass on a summers day. It is both sweet and yet has a touch of class to it that you would expect from Gucci.
For me it is a product you should use at night when you are going out not one to use during the day and is certainly for the discerning gentleman who is out to impress. A bottle of this will cost you around £30 for 100 ml and you can buy it even in spray format or in the old fashioned style. I prefer the spray because it tends to last longer and you don't need to have much on you anyway for people to know you are wearing it.
Overall I really like this and it is one fragrance that will get you noticed. You can buy it from all sorts of retail stores such as Boots, John Lewis and Debenhams. If you have been given some vouchers for Christmas then you might want to consider buying this.
As with most men and women, I have quite a large range of scents to hand at home. One of my favourites at the moment is Gucci - Envy for men. The Eau de Toilette Spray comes in a glass bottle with an oversized top. This particular fragrance comes in 50ml and 100ml bottles, which are priced at £21.50 and £32.74 respectively from cheapsmells.com. This website describes the fragrance as "a refreshing, spicy, lavender, amber fragrance. This masculine scent contains a blend of musk, amber and cedar and is accented with nutmeg, ginger and citrus."
My first impression of this scent is that it is very oriental and woody. If you read my Beckham scent review you will find many similarities in this one, too. The scents arent the same, far from it, but I think the whole general impression is that they want to make you aspire to be something and they suggest the product is part of this lifestyle. I were a little surprised I had this impression due to the Tom Ford link with this fragrance.
As you probably gathered from the nutmeg and ginger it is quite spicy and also peppery. Women tend to prefer sweeter fragrances and this one fits that bill. I would say it is more of an evening scent rather than an everyday scent, it projects well and certainly gets the attention. Also, I believe it is not as suited to younger men, but I dont have any negatives as such.
I got a good 8 to 10 hours from this scent worn on an evening. I think this fragrance is quite unique, as I cannot say it is similar to any other particular fragrance. All I can say it is like is Green Flannel. There are one or two similarities, perhaps it is the woody/powdery scents, I also believe it is more of a grown up scent too. Yes, the packaging itself lends it to a very young and impressionable man, but personally I see it more as a grown up scent . I wont be using this every day but overall I was impressed with it.
This probably has to be one of my favourite aftershaves even though I have a collection of about 10 that I frequently use depending on my mood and occasion! This one is long lasting which means that you can guarantee if you go out for the night that you'll still be smelling good by the end of the night. It's also a good one for wearing during the day to work, especially if you end up going out straight from work as the scent will still be there which is more than a lot of aftershaves. Even though it is long lasting it isn't over powering. It has quite a 'woody' 'spicy' scent and is suitable for men of all ages. I think it's pretty suitable for wearing all year round also. I will certainly be buying some more of it once my current bottle runs out. Not a bad price either.
Compared to all he other fragrances I must rate Gucci as the best. They have managed to make a mixture that doesn’t follow the boring fruity style and not so strong as a jungle scent. This scent I have to say really brings your animal instincts out and makes your partner pulling he hair off.It has a very sophisticated odour. This is an outstanding fragrance that I would recommend to anybody and everybody. Every woman I speak to about this fragrance absolutely adores it.
Another winner from Gucci, love the smell, real refreshing. My wife loves the stuff and keeps pinching it. Be warned if you use it after a shave it really burned my face up for a while, the burn went leaving me feeling and smelling great but boy it stings. Nice packaging, as usual Gucci is not cheap but its worth the cash. Its also nice to have a bottle of somthing expensive in the bathroom for when your visitors call round, looks good doesnt it. If you cant afford it regularly, ask for a bottle for christmas.
