Hidden gem this is basically like the summer version of D&G the one except this one is more affordable you can find it for a reasonable price if you like D&G the one you'll certainly like this the longevity is good on my skin as well I get around 6hrs. of good projection then beyond the 6hrs. it sits close to the skin but it last about total time around 8 to 9 hours before its completely gone I usually use about 5 or 6 sprays in cooler weather and about 3 or 4 in hotter weather its a year round scent 7/10 check it out its so affordable you can blind buy this one

I tried it. to my nose it is like the first time I sprayed Bvlgari it was amazing and thought I had to have it. Of course Bvlgari changes in the dry down to something to sweet and like BO. This one keeps the inital burst of watery bergamont, amber and softens in the dry down. It reminds me of the opening of bvglari and has no resemblance at all to DG the one which is my favorite cologne. It doesn't even have a tea note.

I had a bottle of D&G the one and really liked it. I took it back to the store for a refund because I could not get it to last on my skin. When I heard that Ed Hardy's Villain smelled like it I had to get a bottle. Comparing these two I have to say they are similar but IMO The one is a little darker in its presentation and Villain is brighter. I have to give the edge to villain because it only cost 12.99 for a 2.5 oz and the one is around 50.00 for a 1.7 oz. Also, The longevity in Villain is superb I get at least 7 hours out of a day wearing. If it's a name your worried about get the D&G but if your looking for a great fragrance and want to save some money in the process get Villain.

I paid thirteen bucks at Ross for a 2.5oz bottle. It's all right. At first it honestly smells like Halle by Halle Berry to me. Also very reminiscent of Derek Jeter Driven Black by Avon. It does change some as the day goes by, but it stays in the fresh, but sweet area for the most part. May be too much in warm, humid weather for some. I think it may fare better once it cools down a bit. Decent longevity...about six hours, and workplace decent projection I'd say. Oogly bottle. Like circus body wash...

Just reinforcing my previous review on this juice I still love it as much as when I first bought it. I have not changed my mind on it in the slightest and if anything I love it even more now. It still holds a solid position on my 'favorites' shelf and when my current 75 ml bottle runs out I plan to buy the biggest bottle available. Yes, it's that good! Just forget about the label, forget about the house and don't let that become a mental block for you to own and enjoy this fabulous perfume.

I purchased this after seeing that everyone thought it to be similar to The One by D&G. The One is one of my favorite fragrances, I however don't own it as 7 sprays lasts all of 2 hours on myself... such a shame.

Anyhow I can see the resemblance. This is a great cheapy, and almost like the synthetic version of The One if you like.

Gorgeous citrus floral combined with the warm amber and cardamon. Dry down is a lovely earthy woody smell.

Lasts 10 times longer then The One does on me and for such a cheap price you can't go wrong!

Tried this out soley because people were comparing it to D&G the one.. On paper.. maybe a passing resemblence. But on skin, thats really really stretching it. I Dont particularly see it. As for the smell it self.. Its just ok to me. There are much better cheapies to buy for the money. So bang for your buck not worth it either imo.

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.

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.

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
