Tommy Hilfiger Loud Him Eau de Toilette
Disadvantages: Girlie and delicate
When people do not know what to get you for Christmas then you usually end up with smellies and both my partner and I received a wide selection last year. I have never had a Tommy Hilfiger fragrance before and even in the shops I do not head over to the stand to try them out. We opened the set though and had a smell of the fragrance; we were not expecting great things but we were actually quite surprised.
==Price and availability==
This is a cheap and cheerful fragrance and you can buy it really cheaply. My boyfriend was given thegift set for Christmas that included the fragrance and a body wash. I have googled the set and you can buy it for £17 online. This is a great price as the fragrance is quite pleasant.
The perfume was designed by Aurelien Guichard and Yann Vasnier of the House of Givaudan and it was introduced in 2010. There is female version of the fragrance that has the same bottle design but I have not tried it. Both are supposed to smell vey similar though which I think is quite cliché; his and hers perfumes are a little dated nowadays. The perfume range is aimed at the younger generation and tries to put a bit of rock and roll into the bottles. Music is a definite theme here and I think the bottle is quite cool really. The bottle is designed to look like a record or vinyl disc with a radio knob as the lid. It is silver and little indentations and it certainly looks like a dial to turn an old fashioned stereo up.
The fragrance is not very rock and roll in scent though and it is nice but not very manly. I can happily wear this as a unisex fragrance if I wanted. It is pleasant though but it does not warrant the name "loud" it is definitely a casual daytime scent. The fragrance has a heart of rose and patchouli which is floral and bright with gentle lemon notes to give it a refreshing, zestiness that makes the fragrance light and fresh smelling. There is a spiciness about the scent too and this comes from tobacco which sounds a little gross but it certainly provides the fragrance with a masculine note. My boyfriend likes it but I must admit I was quite surprised as he normally does not like feminine scents and anything with rose usually gets ignored. He seems to quite like this one though and he uses it as a gym fragrance. We must all have a bottle of cheap perfume that you stash in your gym bag to keep you smelling fresh after a work out.
==How it lasts==
The body wash that goes with this is lovely and we had it in the shower where we both used it. It is bubbly and soapy and it has a very pleasant fragrance to it. It seemed a little darker than the fragrance though and you probably would not be able to guess it was from the loud range, very different. It was more like a Lynx body wash rather than a Loud one. My boyfriend uses this two or three times a week after a workout and I can always tell he has it on. It is not a memorable fragrance though and it does fade quickly but in the initial stages it is quite strong and floral. There is nothing sexual about this and I think this is because of the lack of masculinity from the fragrance but it is clean smelling and it is the perfect after shower perfume. It is very clean and pleasant. After a few hours the fragrance fades and there is nothing left at all.
There is a real delicacy to this fragrance that you do not get from regular aftershaves and I think this is nice for a change but it is certainly not living up to its 'loud' name. I would have expected more of a statement perfume but when you are only using rose and patchouli as the main notes you cannot expect miracles. I would be really interested to see what the female version smells like.
I probably would not buy this again for him as although he liked it, it did not knock either of us over and I prefer a fragrance that is going to make a statement. I want sex appeal and style not roses. Roses are pleasant but more suited to old ladies. Overall though this was a nice gift and for the price, it is not something I would replace but it is inoffensive.
Summary: Cheap but not the best
