Narciso Rodriguez For Him Review

When I first properly got into fragrances and scents as I have done, one of the first ones I got was Narciso Rodriguez For Him. This was released in 2007, and I believe that I got this for Christmas of that year, possibly a year later.

It was quite a mysterious scent for me to get, it’s not the huge name that everyone in the world outside of fashion or perfume knows, and the bottle gives nothing away either since it’s dark and opaque. However once you open it and try it, you’ll know why it’s called, For Him.

Obviously For Him implies a masculine type of scent, and it surely does deliver. But it’s not that woody, dirty, musky, old school type of man smell, and is a more spicy aquatic and warm notes which instantly hit you.

Masculine scents usually say one of two things to me: Musky or sophisticated. This one is definitely the sophisticated gentleman, which is inviting and edgy, but has a sensual aura about it. It’s very inviting, and works as a sexy men’s fragrance, and will get plenty of compliments.

As said, this is not one of those hugely commercialised colognes which have had a ton of publicity, and it’s not the most mainstream of names, but that’s a good thing. If you’re wearing this, it will not only get you compliments, but will be fairly unique, since not too many people wear this one.

You really do get a sense of the woody undertones, but the warmth of the spices are what shine through. When it comes to pairing this up with clothing, a nice crisp shirt would work well with it.

When To Wear

Narciso Rodriguez For Him would work well as an evening scent. Whether you’re out on the town with the lads, going out to the city, out with your girlfriend, it’s a powerful fragrance which is incredibly pleasant to smell.

As with these types of scents, the longevity is pretty good, and you can expect it to last all night long. It projects quite well, but is not too pungent or over powering, so will not offend.

If you’re looking for something which screams refined and gentleman, and you want something which your friends may not have, this is definitely worth a try.
