The Fierce Intense Knock-Off is Here
Alcott for men is a little gem, sold for 15.99 euro here in Italy, and occasionally at 11.99 euro during the Black Friday. It is an EDP, excellent value for that price... anyway, what about the scent, what is the smell?

When I saw it in Alcott store two days ago, the black glitter bottle with a silver cap immediately attracted myself, and even more, I was intrigued when I tested on my skin. The bottle and cap are of solid construction. I've sprayed this on the back of my hand, and it floored me at how much I loved this.

Based on the combination of notes Alcott for Men is classified as Aromatic, Aquatic, Fougère fragrance to the nose. The emanation of flavours and scent notes unfurl in a whiff of aromatic and fruity opening top notes. It opens up with a blast of a watery and aromatic accord. The aquatic aspect seems kind of like watermelon mixed with a salty sea breeze. Indeed, the aromatic note reminds me of sage, the decorative part of that aromatic plant to be more precise. The initial stage isn't subtle. It doesn't hold back. And it's up for anything. It has pretty likable aromaticity, but a bit less sweet, a bit more smooth, and a tad drier.

It's now been a while since I applied one spray to the back of my hand. It's very aromatic and performing beautifully. The green and white flowers heart centre note blend in with Lily and wheat. The middle stage kicks in spicy, floral, and herbaceous. The ginger lily magically mixed with wheat extract create such a wet wooden aroma,

Ultimately, the deep musk and woody base notes leave an impression of musk and cashmere wood, which last several hours granting above average longevity.

Well, it is an aroma highlighted by a bouquet of fragrant musky, aromatic and green scented tones that will bring a soft, sensual and refreshing perfumed sensation. Examining it closer once applied you will notice a lingering quality of softer scented gourmand, animal wildlife and faint spicy hints that hide an essence of natural, fresh and warm feelings. There is an uncanny similarity to A&F Fierce Intense. Alcott for Men is a winner in my roster, and if you love Fierce as I do, this is a must-have. It's very similar to the Fierce, almost identical, but different enough to warrant having both. Very wearable, and dare I say more wearable than the original. If you like Fierce, you'll love this. Glad I have mine.

Notwithstanding Alcott for men is sold in shops for young guys, though it is a more grown-up, refined take on the classic Fierce. This new rendition of Fierce borrows the dry, woody-spicy elements of Fierce along with the ripe marine accord of vintage Acqua Di Gio and creates this thick, ruggedly handsome aura, but has a more authoritarian, mature feel to it.
Anyone who tries to put age limits or only one gender can wear this scent make no sense. I am fond of Fierce, and as my age progresses, I am still happy to wear it now and then. Maybe it's directed towards the youth, but it makes me feel young and alive when I wear it. So, Alcott for men works fine to me and on me.
In my opinion, it is a versatile scent for warm and hot seasons, from spring throughout all autumn, ideal for day, afternoon and evening, both leisure and work are the right occasions.
