You've made it big in the music world what's there left to do? I know I'll release my own fragrance. It certainly seems that way Over the last couple of years with a number of big stars releasing their own brands of perfume. Stars including the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and now R&B superstar Usher has followed Prince and Sean Coombs into the mens fragrance line. Like most normal fragrance brands Usher has two different fragrances, one for men which is called He and one for women called She. As a man I am of course reviewing Usher He.
Usher He is housed in a very distinctive looking black bottle which has The name Usher in silver Capitals and the screw cap is a very interesting looking one which has a very posh look. Like most fragrances Usher He comes in two different sized bottles. The 50ml and 100ml bottle. He was created by perfumer Richard Herpin who had previously worked on the Celine Dion perfume called Spring in Paris as well as work for Ralph Lauren.
Usher He opens with gorgeous notes of verbena, pineapple and melon to create a fresh scent which leads to the middle notes of a very sensual warm mix of blue lavender, white pepper and violet leaf and finally the soft notes of The dry down of vetiver, amber wood, black suede, sandalwood, sensual musk and guaiac wood make the fragrance a sexy smooth and very fresh scent. Each part of the fragrance lasts well and gives you many hours of the scent. One of the longer lasting fragrances I have tried. The smell of this is absolutely gorgeous and will impress many people around you for it's sensual passion and fire. This is a great woody fragrance that will suit men around 18-35 as it has a very nice youngish fragrance.
This fragrance is very versatile which allows it to be great for just about every occasion. Wear it whilst you are on a night out and you will get the girls around you saying "Is that Usher's fragrance?" It's also light enough to be worn as an everyday fragrance and will last you throught the day without you needing to reapply it every few hours.
**Price and Availiablity**
As you would expect as a top fragrance this isnt that cheap and you can quite easily pay somewhere around £40 in store for a 100ml bottle of this fragrance which may seem steep to you but you get what you pay for as this fragrance last a long time. The 50ml bottle is around £29.50 in Boots and you can find some great deals online for both the 50ml and 100ml bottles as you can see to the right of the review. You can also find some good deals on the extra after-shave products, deodorant and shower gel that are in the Usher He range along with the eau de toilette's.
This is one of the nicest ever fragrances I have owned and as a fan of Usher's music I am very pleased that I enjoyed his fragrance so much aswell. I will look at for any more fragrances in the range as I am sure that they will be very good too. I would love this fragrance even if it wasnt Usher's own fragrance. This is right up there with the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Joop, Lacoste etc etc.
