First Instinct - Mega Good , Second Impression - Mega Bad
The perfume's name says it all. My first instinct was euphoria. My second was pure disillusionment. This perfume is intended for T-shirt warm days and surprised me with its exotic fruit note. An example shortly after the purchase: I enter a room with many people and stand next to a person and this asks me directly: "Wow, what smells so horny here? "I really had to smile. For so little money to create such a horny summer feeling I found very impressive. This perfume surpasses many expensive alternatives in this segment. Now we come to the hook: After about an hour this scent strikes in another direction. The fresh one is completely gone and you almost stink of a peppery substance. The spice note then has a very penetrating effect even on the wearer. The scent DNA is completely gone. For short spontaneous appearances in the summer it is suitable, if one would like to smell fast good, not more. The performance is a disaster. All in all, I can't recommend it to anyone

Great Smokey Musk Blended with Sweetness Fragrance (8.5/10)
Scent
The scent is smokey musk blend with a sweet scent. The smokey musk scent on the top notes is quite similar to Dolce & Gabbanna 6 L'amoureux.

Longevity
The longevity of the scent is okay, especially on evening, night, and cold season use.
For non 4-seasons countries, the scent is good on evening, night, and cold season. The longevity long-last around 5-6 hours on mentioned period, and 3-4 hours on day.
For the 4-seasons countries, the longevity is around 5-6 hours.

Performance
The performance of this fragrance is okay. For the first 30 minutes, the scent is very similar to D&G 6 L'amoureux. When its goes to middle note, the smokey musk scent is getting soft. This fragrance is good to be wear in closed area and passive activity.

Sillage
The sillage of this First Instinct is okay especially on the top notes. Just only, the scent is quite similar to D&G 6.

Uniqueness
This First Instinct has not much uniqueness to be mention. Only toward its great smokey musk & sweet scent.

Bottle Design
The bottle design of First Instinct is ordinary. Its feel solid and complete when holding the bottle of Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct.

Sweet & Tart
I notice review sites and YouTubers mentioning a similarity to CH Men by C. Herrera.

I get the sweetness but this, to me, is sweet fruit and not sugar itself.

Not too fruity though, I am really liking it.

There's a tartness that does not die down after an hour or so like others where base notes like musk, woods or resins take over and finish off the lifespan of a scent.

It is still going after 8 hrs. on me.
Definetly warm weather scent and i dont feel awkward wearing it even though I am not a teen or early twenty-something.

Fresh and tangy fragrance, suitable for the office (since it's harmless), but also interchangeable and completely unexciting.+1
