DKNY Men Fragrance Reviews

I don't like this at all. Very generic, very non-descript, useless. I really don't get what the creator had in mind when creating this composition.

This was the first men's fragrance I bought for myself. I have a bottle from the 2000 vintage, it lasts 6-8 hours, with a moderate to heavy sillage, depending on application. I apply it sparingly to my wrists for daytime wear. It is fresh, yet complex, and with my chemistry, dries down to a woody and slightly bittersweet citrus scent. The bottle reminds me of my first trip to Manhatten when we visited the North Tower. :'-(

I use to own twice. My first ever Perfume purchase then ironically got it as gift from my first ever girlfriend in junior High school. Reminds me too much bittersweet memories in high school dramas.

This has been on my fragrance roster for more than decade now. Definitely one of my favorites. The only time I stopped wearing it was during the 2014-2015 period. My ex didn´t like me to wear it cause it reminded him of HIS ex. Sadly I decided to accommodate him. Sigh!
The scent reads very fresh and young to me. Whenever I wear it I feel like I'm myself and ready to stroll down 5th avenue and spend half my salary on clothes. Something that has been known to happen.
This is one of those fragrances that seems to have been formulated specially for me. Givenchy Blue Label is another one that gives me this feeling.

A decent scent, fresh spicy sums it up. Longevity is a bit of an issue with me, but that's the rub with a lot of these fragrances.
"Adventure" by Davidoff is a similar frag (to my noise anyway) only with a bit more depth.
Kudos goes to the design, the bottle looks lovely.

All in All, Good but not essential.

Someone that I was completely infatuated with for a year (when I was around the age of 19, 2005) wore this. We were good friends and it was an unrequited love, even if he did find me attractive and had no issues with leading me on for many months... In the end, my feelings for him completely died after I found out that he had been sleeping with my best friend. That quickly ended two of my friendships, lol. But it still didn't change my attachment to the fragrance. I simply love it. I wonder if it would be wrong of me to buy this for my fiance to wear? Haha.

Not feeling this one. It's a fresh aquatic, but there's nothing special about it, and it's inferior to so many similar fragrances. If you want "generic fresh", at least go for cK One, or something.

I bought this last week at a well discounted clearance sale. Smells fresh and reminded me of giorgio armani lui, but at a cheaper price. Too bad, it doesnt last very long and almost no dry down, which is not good for someone eith dry skin like me. But i like to mix this with tar-ry armani diamond to give it a boost.

This was one of my very first perfume I bought, back in early 2000s.

I remember to like it ALOT but I can't remember the smell. I just remember it was fresh and warm at the same time and yes I used to wear it before going to parties and clubs. At the time I was into house music and expensive designer clothes.

I am sure if I can manage to smell this I would get so many of these memories back. :)

This was my first designer perfume that it's why it's so memorable. It was a christmas gift from a good friend of mine an Anesthetist. I love this fragrance and so as my wife to me. I was looking for this everytime I visit a perfume house and couldn't find one. Sad to know today that this was discontinued. So dissapointed today that I made this first review. I finished 2 bottles of this perfume. This December of 2012 I found it in one of the shops here in Abu Dhabi, so this is my 3rd bottle. DKNY please return this perfume. This is a citrus but unique, clean and noncloying fragrancce. Suitable for the office or school and on summer weather either day or night. It has above average longevity and sillage for a citrus summer scent. I rate this 10/10 for me.

the scent is great but unfortunately dosn't last long at all (2 hrs max) on my skin,an all season scent that can be use day/night time.
btw the 2009 dkny man smells exactly the same.(with the same poor longevity)
my rank 3/5.

The top is very generic woody aromatic opening followed by a drydown that reminds me of VS Very Sexy for Him, except that it doesn't last very long. A nice pleasant scent that lasts about 1-2 hours on my skin. It's too bad, I kinda liked that drydown. :/

Fresh, slightly citrus scent but kind of generic and effortless, which makes it a perfect summer casual scent in my books.

An EDT with a citrus smell too-ESPCI, which behaves as a citric heavy, dense and formal nature, nevertheless reslata not much flavor and smell is loose and off.

A smell suitable for teens under the age of 40 years. Too dense and a little spicy. It is not advisable to go out for more than one chance. I do not recommend.

I like wearing this fragrance during spring in the day time.
This one is nice, fresh, and clean while still remaining a sweet masculine fragrance.

This smells as it is described: an urban freshness. Its most known rivals are for sure 212 Men, Azzaro Now Men and Davidoff Echo Men. They all have a certain soapy-metallic tone that does not smell bad at all. Unfortunately, this is not my type of cologne, it does not fit my skin and so I can't wear it, but I appreciate that its urban message.

This one is a love/hate for women. Some woman find it a little bit feminin. I totally love it. Fresh & soft & sweet
