Summary: A fizzy, green, soapy '70s floral chypre of the type that's been out of vogue for a while, and that marks its wearer as an iconoclast of sorts. I LOVE it! Yes, there are the associations that come with smelling this affordable, ubiquitous scent everywhere during my formative years: my chain-smoking, pants-suited grandma wore it; my college friend with the jean jacket and thrift-store boots got her bottle at Woolworth; girls in gym class fumigated their stinky pits with...
Summary: I was surprised to learn that "Charlie" won a Fifi award (the perfume version of the Oscar) back in the day. Though I was just a kid, I can still vividly recall the commercials for "Charlie" with Shelley Hack dressed in a man-tailored suit. "Kinda young, kinda now, Charlie, Kinda hip, kinda wow, Charlie" so the jingle went.
Summary: Purchased this on FragranceX in January, and it arrived in Malaysia in 2weeks. Thumbs up to FragranceX for quick delivery, thumbs down to the reviews on this product. Either I got a completely different Charlie Blue Revlon or my body chemistry's just against this particular fragrance, otherwise I see no reason why I should smell like I sprayed on disinfectant or antiseptic. If you think about purchasing this, better be prepared to use it as air freshener.
Summary: My review refers to what is now being sold as "Charlie Blue", presumably the modern day formulation of the original Charlie. I am not a fragrance snob and am always on the lookout for a drugstore bargain, in fact I am doing my best to work through all the classic, even iconic drugstore fragrances still available today. My mom loved and wore Charlie for many years and still does on occasion, so my associations with it were previously positive.
Summary: I wore this in the mid/late 70's in high school and during a grad school work study in England. I remember they had a whole makeup line to go with it. Smelling it always reminded me of that time in my life. I picked some, up just for nostalgia, and wore it one day. My long time boyfriend who was born 10 years after Charlie came out sniffed my neck and gave me his first whole unabashed "WHAT are you wearing, you smell so good?". He'd never smelled it before.
Summary: I love this fragrance!! I keep it in my locker at school for if I ever forget to put on perfume before school. I sometimes spray it after gym class if I'm really sweaty, so that I can atleast smell good!! It has such a fruity smell, the smell actually reminds me of Orbit chewing gum (the mixed berry flavour). The bottle's great as well, I once dropped it by mistake as I was picking up something off my dresser and it fell off, the bottle wasn't even cracked!
