I must admit, I enjoy Very Sexy for Men by Victoria Secret more then I want or expected. I think this cologne defiantly has it’s place in some collections, especially those new to colognes or just want one or two bottles. This is a citrus scent that is geared for the younger generations. The bottle is rather simplistic and simple, being a smoked dark bottle. A rather large plastic lid sits on top giving a nice presentation. Overall I like the presentation and it’s on par for what you’re paying
Like I said its a nice citrus with a hint of spice with the scent. It does have a slightly synthetic opening, which is to be expected for this price range. The drydown keeps a pleasant citrus smell and drys down to a woody/musky scent. Overall I have to admit that it is a nice scent. The problems begin to arise when you get into longevity and projection. For me this doesn’t last at all. I’ve worn it many times, and 4 hours later it’s just gone. I’ve tried in warm weather, cool weather, everything. It just doesn’t stick around like you would like from a fragrance. Also I had issues with projection with this cologne. I normally suggest 2-4 sprays depending on the cologne. With Very Sexy for Him you can use 6+ and still be fine. It sits very close to the skin and requires someone to be very close before they’re going to smell it. Maybe that’s by design , I don’t know.
This is a great cologne for teens and college aged guys. I could see you wearing it if you’re older, but just as something casual. For the younger guys, I think this is perfect if you’re only going to have one or two bottles. This cologne wears great in any occasion be it class/work/ or a date. To me this falls into the same category as Chrome, Cool Water, etc. It is loved by women and will get you compliments. It however isn’t as popular as the previously mentioned colognes, which to me is a good thing. You won’t smell like everyone else, but still have that appeal to the younger women.
Overall I’d recommend this as a buy for anyone under 22 or so. If you’re looking to buy one cologne, this is perfect as it is very versatile and economical. It truly is a very good cologne for the right person. If you’re older, or have a decent collection already I’d give this one a pass.
