Formerly cheap, now cheap
New York used to be one of the decent Playboy fragrances along with VIP and London. Sometime between 14 and 16 times to get a birthday and positively surprised. The fragrance was the first perfume to convince. Fresh, sweet and youthful the good drop. And this at a price of approx. 5 - 10€ / 100ml. The durability is rather poor, but it has always been enough for school. For me at that time a sufficient and above all affordable fragrance, which was bought accordingly often. The one or other compliment from those of the same age was also paid to New York - what more could you want? At some point, I lost sight of Playboy. In the meantime it was reissued with a new flacon, so that I was hooked by the low price again. Instead of the hoped-for nostalgia, however, the first scent impression was biting alcohol and after that...nothing. Only after a few minutes the somewhat familiar sweetish note slowly emerges, only to vanish completely after 2 hours, weakening and disappointing. Fake? Bad batch? A newly ordered 3 months younger batch delivered the same result. For checking purposes I ordered the Playboy London - also in the new flacon. This one still smells pretty good I am therefore disappointed. Formerly a buy recommendation for the young owner of a chronically empty wallet. In the meantime I can't recommend this fragrance to anyone, even for 5€. Then I'd rather go to London.

Boss Bottled Fierce?
Playboy New York is a nice cheapy but common clone scent but taken in a direction it has never been before. This is Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce, Axe Apollo or Ed Hardy Skull & Roses, and countless other fragrances. But it is one of those with a twist that don't exist in any of that corner of the mass market chick-magnet scent. While it does open like them a lot, in the mid and base, it is as if it was ever combined with Hugo Boss Boss Bottled but in a summery way like say Boss Bottled Tonic or Unlimited. It is an interesting twist on Fierce.

I have to give props to whomever at Playboy fragrance came up with that idea for this scent. I know most times Playboy is sweetened if not gourmand takes on popular fragrances (that are or aren't already sweet scents) but this is really good stuff. It takes Fierce into a new direction and unique enough to not be a straight up clone or dupe. That said the notes to copy Fierce are interesting and very New York with vinyl and aledhydes replacing for fir.

From there, it goes into a nearly Boss Bottled direction with the apple and some slight pepper. This gives it a slight feel of the apple and cinnamon you get with Boss Bottled and its various flankers or smell-alike. It is cemented with a vanilla and tonka bean base. The vanilla and Tonka bean continues the feel of Boss Bottled.

Playboy does a pretty good job while it lasts. Due to the fact that it is Playboy, you get about six/seven hours of longevity but it only projects maybe two hours at a moderate to soft level. A bit lacking considering Fierce. That said it is a lady pleaser while it lasts. My ex-girlfriend loved this on me.

Overall I can give Playboy New York a 7.3 out of 10. If it lasted, it would be awesome because it took a common style scent but twisted it in its own way. It is the best of the Playboy scents I've used honestly. A best of the best in the cheapies.

Cheap But Very Cheerful
Surprisingly good. A very fresh and fruity budget scent which some say is quite reminiscent of Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch. Projection and longevity are also extremely impressive and I tend to get a good 10 hours worth of wear out of it. Which is very good for any fragrance, but when you consider the price point for this it's frankly amazing! Overall a very nice, inexpensive scent suitable for a younger person as a casual / day-to-day scent. And if you can ignore the crass Playboy image, which I suggest that you do in this case, then it is definitely worth a try.
