Villain for Men Fragrance Reviews

This is my first frag review ever. I wore this last Saturday morning and my GF asked what it was. I told her, and asked her if she liked it and she gave it the thumbs up. I like it too, but there's some note in it that during the initial stages is so strong I can literally taste it (is that what people mean by "cloying"?) but after a few minutes it settles down and is very pleasant. After it dries a bit to me it seems to develop a tea-like vibe, although there's no tea in it. I wonder what combination is producing that? Longevity is decent on me (about 5 hrs), projection appears to be about a meter or maybe a bit more. Not a candidate as a signature frag for me, but it's definitely wearable and you can't beat the price. Not bad at all, I give it a 3.9 out of 5.

Had this for a while now. It IS more than just a citrus. I can smell well, citrus yes, tonka, amber and mild spices. It's like a watered down version of Blue Jeans. Villain is just OK. I will use it up then....that's it.

Nothing world-shattering, but people seem to like it enough, and I must admit I like it as well.

This is a great underrated fragrance. Nice blend of citrus with the spices and woods. It's elegant in the drydown.

Well, on me, Villain is just a citrus. A fairly nice citrus though. I get a bergamot opening, almost a orange/lemon scent with slight amber. And - that's all I get...at the moment. Doesn't seem very potent. It's strange, people are saying it smells like The One, now I haven't smelled The One but when I look at the notes - the main note is tobacco. On me, Villain has no tobacco note at all. Villain is citrus with slight amber, that's all I smell. A bit disappointed with this, I have to say.

Like everyone else here, I believe the name is misleading. It's definitely not a 'villain' of a fragrance however I am impressed at how good thus one actually is. Could definitely wear this for any situation since it's very inoffensive.

8/10 overall
Very good but not a complete standout.

Read many good reviews here for Villain and bought it yesterday without trying (2.5oz $15 at Ross), sprayed on my hand and walked home, first couple hours thought it smells pretty good, but next morning couldn't stand it - smells way too sweet so it gives me a headache.
Returned it. So try it before buying.

This scent is one of the favorites in my collection. I don't own The One but I have sampled it several times and have to agree with many of you that it smells quite similar. There are some subtle spice differences but all in all they are very close. I don't see any of you mentioning the sandalwood note which I am picking up and I think that is one of the reasons why I really love this. The combination of the sandalwood sweetened by the amber is exquisite and is complimented by a citrusy opening and accented in the drydown with nuances of spice and a hint of cedar.

Yes, I think this is a classy fragrance and yes, I am surprised to see something of this nature with an Ed Hardy label. Seems a bit of an oxymoron if you will or perhaps you have known a classy villian or two in your day. Who am I to judge! In this case I enjoy smelling like a "Villian". Well played Mr Audigier.

This fragrance is great IMHO. I mean, yes, it's associated with an old tattoo artist (Hardy)...but this is exactly why folks turn their noses up at it - or rather, away from it. I do agree, It is not what I would expect a "Villain" to smell like, but is a nice. sweet fragrance with surprisingly good silage and pretty decent longevity. I am in line with the last few reviews. To me, it is a FUN, post workout frag with a nice amber tone. I am not disappointed by it; it has it's place and time.

This is a great smell. I received it as a tester, but the first time when I putted it on I immediately received a compliment from a girl.
I really like the fragrance because it has a fresh and mysterious smell. Also it has an average lasting and has a nice drydown.
Really a good underrated fragrance for not that much money!

Sweet amber smokey whiskey with sour apple. Thats just sum it up for this fragrance, in my opinion. Not exactly how I imagine "villain" would smell like. It'd be better if it were darker and more smokey but for what it is, it isn't bad.

I want to like this one, but I just don't. My bottle is almost full still. I will say the initial spray is bad but it actually gets a lot better. So...if you try this don't even pay attention for about an hour then see what you think.

Well, after 3 nights wearing Ed Hardy's Villain I can say this fragrance is GREAT, very underrated I must say. For me it's very fresh, herbal, sweet, casual and masculine. The basil here is just great!!! Yes, it can remind you of Dolce & Gabana The One but a little more flat when it dries down, but still feels great. Haven't try Versace Blue Jeans so I can't compare them.
I'm not a big fan of Ed Hardy's fragrance collection but Villain is truly the best masculine fragrance they have. Got complements, lasted like 6 to 8 hours on me, projects very good, is not expensive and it's a safe buy. Give it a try!!!
2.5 out of 5.

My goodness, this is good. Flowery and 'gingery', must be the cardamom/nutmeg blend. I'm female and I love wearing this. It's the best Ed Hardy men's fragrance yet. It may possibly be the best Ed Hardy fragrance, period.

Can I just say the packaging of both the mens and womens is like a replica of the versace red and blue jeans perfumes. From the colours, to the tins, to the font for petes sake! I haven't smelt the villain perfumes and I'm not judging but they couldve been at least a bit more original with the designs.

finaly tried this one yesterday for work. lets start saying that villain, at least on my skin, smells almost identical to versace blue jeans, maybe villain is a little bit more flowery than blue jeans, but almost the same. for me it is an ok perfume, but not a masterpiece. now, the sillage of villain is a 9/10 and the lasting power is 10/10 at least on my skin..

Very masculine, warm, enveloping, rich sweetness, gently smouldering.

If I have any complaint, it is that it is a bit too sweet, almost sticky, the aroma seems to congeal into viscous wafts, a little too dense. It needs something to lighten it a bit, perhaps a touch of citrus.

It makes a great first impression, like a strikingly handsome man, who after awhile, displays some annoying habits which get on your nerves.

Almost purchased this today because it was 50% off at Dillards. Glad that I asked the associate to spray this on my skin because it does smell exactly like D&G The One. I dont have a use for Villain because I already have D&G The One.

From looking at the notes, I imagined how this would smell, and sure enough, my olfactory imagination was dead on. This is a nice linear lavender, mildly spicy, ambery fragrance. Totally unoffensive and could be used in any situation. Nothing really interesting here, but sometimes, people don't want to smell particularly interesting...just good, and this does the trick. Perfectly acceptable and for me, the best of Ed Hardy line easily. Sort of a middle ground between Givenchy Play and Caron Pour Un Homme.
UPDATE: After a couple test wearings, I have to report that there is something in the drydown that just gets annoying to me, and I'm not easily annoyed. It's like an amber nutmeg accord with too much twang in it. It looks like there is still no Ed Hardy scent that I can tolerate.

I agree with $$ saying this smells like the one by D&G for me a little better because I get vanilla in the drydown. I really like it and I purchased a bottle I think the best by E.H.

Smelled this today at Maceys, smells very fresh, with a strange almost vanilla quality to the freshness. If you really dont't smell carefully you wont smell the vanilla vibe. Even though there is no vanilla in here. All and all, a solid scent 7/10
