David Beckham Classic David & Victoria Beckham for men Pictures

David Beckham is expanding his fragrance line with a new release Classic, dedicated to men of style. David Beckham, as a global style icon and trendsetter, embodies masculinity and modernity and knows how to combine contemporary style with classic elegance.

Classic is a fragrance that balances "charismatic masculinity and classic elegance", developed by Aurelien Guichard. Top notes include fresh citrusy flavors of gin and tonic, lime and galbanum. Cypress, nutmeg and fresh mint in the heart are rounded by the warm woody base of vetiver, cedar and amber.

Carré Basset designs the packaging. The fragrance is available as 40 and 60 ml Eau de Toilette with an accompanying collection for care. David Beckham Classic was launched in 2013.

Perfume rating: 3.44 out of 5 with 78 votes.

David Beckham Classic Fragrance Reviews

Without reading any reviews I thought this reminds me of Davidoff Adventure too, but with an additional synthetic/ozonic smelling note I cannot bear. I guess this must be what others call "amber" here.

I agree that there is quite a bit in common with Michael for Men by Kors (original), but this is smoother, simpler, and lighter. So, this might work well for me because the Kors has a musk note that I often find irritating, though it dissipates after an hour or so. I grabbed a bottle of this one because it was in the "bargain bin," but I think it's definitely a major step up from there, Now if you find the Kors scent to be too weak, as more than a couple of people have, then I doubt you'd be interested in this one. Perhaps this is good for an aficionado on a day when he wants to "tone it down," and I'd say it is fairly safe to give as a gift, unless the person only likes "fresh" type scents. I wish "celebuscents" would be more daring, as is the case for Phoenix by Keith Urban, but at least this one isn't totally generic or a "chemical mess."

I don't know. It's pretty wearable for a TJMaxx cheapo. It is actually very much like a watered down and more synthetic Michael Kors Men which I like a great deal. Woody, spicy and a bit warm. I'll keep it.

Considering you can buy a 3 oz. bottle of this at T.J. Maxx for $16+tax it's a good value. See if you can find it at a discounter like Marshalls/Ross/T.J. Maxx. It smells better than what the price suggests. The fragrance is sweet and can be worn in all seasons and occasions. This one is a safe bet and lasts a long time too. I sprayed the fragrance on my dress shirt in the morning and it's still going strong many hours later. Great bang for the buck. Love the bottle too.

This one is a very bitter one.

It begins with this really bitter note which catches in your throat. It smells almost citrussy but not quite, then the woody notes especially cedar come through. It is very green and sharp, but disappears very quickly. Sits close to the skin and not a strong scent. I am not getting clean and green from this, more of a fuzzy fog.

Just a chemical mess. Nothing classic about it what I can smell. It doesn´t even smell good IMO, let alone the short time it lasts, or maybe that´s a good thing.

I like this guy, like him very much. But his fragrances, SUCK!!! No way on Earth is this anything other then a cheap fragrance i'd expect to find in Asda or Tesco, next to the usual array of cheap toiletries. Nothing more then a money making exercise by Coty, stick a celebrity name on a bottle of muck and market it. All trace had gone of my skin after literally 40 minutes. Please save your £15 or whatever it costs and put it towards something proper!!

Another good scent from Mr Beckham.

Smooth, smart and sophisticated. Definitely for the 30-something man. A 'suited-and-booted' type fragrance. All the DVB fragrances that I have tried are in the upper "like" category but DVB Classic.....I love it.

Far higher quality scent than it's price point (e.g. £17 for 90ml at Superdrug right now). Suitable for wear any time.

Very nice indeed.

A thoughtful version of Davidoff Adventure, a combination of citruses, spices and amber. David Beckham Classic is less spicy and "sharp" than Adventure, that's why it is more wearable and enjoyable.

I recently finished off a small sample bottle of this and have to say it is a very different scent to any previous by the 'Beckham' range.
This is a very aromatic fragrance which for me sold it. Would definitely be very good as a daily wear scent.

I will probably be buying a full bottle soon or when the price decreases to something much less than it is now as the 'Beckham' fragrances usually do. :)

To my nose this smells exactly like Burberry Men. Gives me the same woody vibe. Nice fragrance, classy but not so long-lasting from what I've experienced.

This is the first DB fragrance I've ever tried.
I had a certain reluctance and skepticism about 'celebrity' fragrances if you like.
Nothing against Beckham, In fact as a die hard Manchester United fan I've nothing but respect for the guy.
Anyway...This fragrance is not bad at all.
Aromatic, manly, and pretty old skool frankly!
I won't be getting it but it's not bad at all and has encouraged me to try the other fragrances in the line.

Tried this one today. I don't normally go for the Beckham scents but this one is very nice - for the first couple of hours. It's kind of a traditional mix of oud, musk, woody notes and alcohol. If you're looking for reference point, it's like a cheaper, less complex version of Givenchy Gentlemen - the new blue one. Unfortunately, as it fades it begins to smell very much like rest room hand wash! It doesn't so much fade away as it does disintegrate.

I will wait a couple of months and maybe buy this one. The prices on Beckham''s scents drop pretty dramatically soon after release.
