sage and shiny wood
A lesser personage than Alberto Morillas would never have got away with it.

I for one am glad he did, but I still can't figure out what's so sexy about a bamboo long house in the jungle and a pot of curry.

Its a great scent…
… very similar to Le Male. After reading the polar reviews, I was hoping I would be on the “+” side of the fence, but alas, it’s very light, and doesn’t perform well on my skin.

I grabbed it because I LOVE Le Male, and I wanted a more robust performing, longer lasting swing. Not this one, at least on my skin.

This one sits very close from the very start, with a soft 1-2ft radius, and a very light sillage trail. Longevity wise, it lasts (as a skin scent) about 3-5hours.

The scent itself is very nice. It’s like a more rounded, non-minty Le Male. If it was louder, I would be VERY happy. I can’t complain too much, however, as I got this one for $35 on fragranceX. You get what you pay for, right? I was just hoping for a low dollar score, and I missed. Oh well.

Again, not a bad scent at all, but don’t expect this to reach anyone further than a shoulders length in distance, let alone through a mask, 6ft+ away.

Sexy indeed
Ok, let's say that this is more like an evening/night out fragrance for young men. Just like 1 million, ultra male etc. And you know why this one is the best of them all? Because ultra male is screaming "HEY GIRLS, YOU KNOW WHO IS SEXY? I'M SEXY !!!". 212 sexy men doesn't scream at all, because it doesn't have to. It knows that it is an attention grabber. It is quiet, yet more intriguing than the others. It's simply more interesting. It's deeper. Just grab it if you wanna be the "quiet king of the night". You won't regret it. Trust me

starting to grow on me
I blind bought this (which usually is a big no-no) and I regretted doing so cause I didn't care too much about Sexy Men, it kinda smelled like curry to me so I just kept it in the back of my dresser but by the 3rd time I forced myself to use it I kinda warmed up to it. (That curry-like spicy smell I got was the cardamom)

All in all I'm starting to reconsider this fragrance, last night I wore it and really got a kick out of it, I just wish you could get more vanilla and tonka and the cardamom wasn't so overpowering.

Is 'Sexy Men' the right name? I don't think it is sexy but I'll let that question to the ladies

True to the name
Now with money of the fragrance is now in the market there is a lot of concentration and infatuation with sex. And it is understandable one of the appeals of buying a fragrance is being more more attractive to the opposite sex but there are some fragrances there truly pursuit the sexy scent. Carolina Herrera 212 sexy men is exactly that it wants to to encapsulate sex and offer it to your off factory sensors it is warm fuzzy and masculine.
The most notable notes will be Gauiac Wood, Vanilla, Pepper and of course lavender. Lavender is labelled as floral notes in the website and we all know why. This to me smells like a very sexy and darker version Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male. Yet I want to draw another comparison, to my nose this fragrance blends vanilla and black pepper in a similar fashion to Parfums de Marly Herod. the scent is extremely well considering that this is a designer fragrance it's just that sweet spot of boldness yet mas pleasing thatmakes this fragrance so appealing to me. The only downside that this fragrance has is the longevity and the overall performance, in that regard it's a bit lackluster. I can draw a comparison between this the one EDP and La Nuit de L'homme and CH men Prive from the same house, the reason being that all of the aforementioned fragrances have this sexy quality to them yet they do it in a very different fashion than each other get all of them have the same week spot or maybe even point of strength depending how you look at the matter. The overall performance of all of these fragrances are not well. In fact given that all of these fragrances are sweets the performance are big let downs, limiting what could have been a very versatile fragrance to a date night sent. 212 sexy men is from the same bunch.
