After extensive research online on user reviews, I decided to give Realities by Liz a try because of its consistent high ratings. However the real reality turned out disappointingly the opposite:
Sillage 0 (very weak and unnoticeable even with almost 10 sprays)
Longevity 0(see above. Fades away completely in 30 mins or so)
Scent 0 (smells no better than cheap soap)
Value 5 (affordable)

I am completely dumbfounded by my experience in total contrast with others. Was it recently reformalated (for the worst of course)??

An affordable nice frag. Nothing overly special about it but it does the job in the "smelling good factor."

I love this scent. Many say it smells like D&G, but to to me, it smells almost identical to portfolio green by perry ellis. I dont really even see the lemon in realities, more green creaminess/patchouli warmness like in portfolio green. It's a great cheap fregrance that I will use frequently this summer. The longevity and sillage are awesome. Was a good blind buy for me.

I got this mini bottle as a holiday gift. This fragrance is evolved around green quality of patchouli. It's not overly earthy here because the citrus note keeps trying so hard to freshen up the scent. Once the citrus note is about to give up, something sweet like tonka bean comes in; giving the scent a oriental feel. Woody accord is noticeable, but it's nothing like a strong cedar or agarwood. It's much more subtle. Again, patchouli is always around. It's pleasant, sweet, and somewhat light. It's easiest-to-wear patchouli scent I have encountered.

I agree it smells like DG, but something about this cologne annoys me after a while so much so that I gave it away. DG on the other had is almost perfection in a bottle

The after shave is nice but, the spray tube was too short on two bottles that I purchased. Once the bottle is half full, it stops spraying. This makes the product useless.

Like all others said, similar to D&G, i like it and appreciate its longivity too, but there is a certain sharp note that it would be better if it is toned down a little bit!

I agree with andy and scottyvizz's take on Realities being a complete mirror of D&G. That said, it's pleasant, lasts forever (10+ hours on me), and gets me a lot of compliments. I like it, plain and simple.

i like it but theres a time and place when this stuff just gets plain cloying and its a bit strong and hard on the nose i havent gotten overly good responses out of people sporting this so id say go easy on it its VERY overpowering but long lasting

It's true, smells almost exactly like D&G except lighter and cheaper. Snagged a 1.7oz for $10, that's a thumbs up for me!
