Summary: Sigh. I don't know. I've had this fragrance for about four years and I just about never wear it -- at least on its own. I've found it smells more interesting when combined with Debut from PacSun (yes, a PacSun cologne... one I've had for *years* now). 212 smells like summer to me. It really is flooded with green aromas. It smells like fresh cut grass with a little bit of citrus in there. Without a doubt, this is a daytime fragrance for the spring and summer...
Summary: interesting fragrance, it smells good. I have the nyc version! this fragrance is very grassy (a little bit too much in my opinion) and citrus hints . The projection is great. very good longevity, at least 8 hours+ and I can easily smell myself ''the morning after'' I would recommend it for people 20 to 45 years old A fun fragrance!
Summary: Over-all smell : Smells initially like a fresh metallic freshly cut grass scent. Right back in 2001, I can say it's one of the sexiest fragrance on the market but current formulation with 212 NYC smells shitty. Decent projection and somehow a people-pleaser. Incredible sprayer & bottle!
Summary: To me this is a fresh masculine scent. Initial spray gives my nose a whiff of citrus and after a while it starts to warm up and I find myself being embraced by a warm, sweet and a bit spicy fragrance. This is a compliment-magnet for me. And as far as projection, sillage and longevity are concerned this one has all of that.
Summary: This is one of the most popular men's cologne in the designer industry. I think it's high time they made an "Intense", "Extreme" or "EDP" version of this. Ever since the new packaging or should I say reformulation (NYC box) this is a shadow of what it used to be.
Summary: Ridiculous, nonsense, even I cannot call it as perfume after reading so many reviews I made blind buy of 212 NYC, very first time I felt it was a great mistake, it smell like some medicine, may be some antibiotic cream in hospital, I wonder how to finish this or throw in the garbage, with the same money I would have bought 3 CW. I'll never ever trust only on reviews and test any perfume before I buy it.
