Twelve years after the launch of Instinct comes this, Made Of Instinct from the line of fragrances by David Beckham. I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of this before it’s release tomorrow, so what is it all about.
As always I have to start with the bottle. It’s the same shape bottle as the other’s in the Instinct line, with this one being a really nice blue colour which I really like. The branding is clear and to the front in a chrome silver colour, which matches the colour of the top. I really like the colour combination of the blue and silver, and it really works well. The top is a magnet style which I love, and gives a more premium feel, and comes with the DVB logo to the top.
Made Of Instinct comes 12 years after the original Instinct, which was launched by David Beckham in 2005. A range of scents from the Instinct family were then born, including Intense, After Dark, Pure, Ice, Sport and Gold, and now in 2017 the new vibrant fragrance for men is here.
The scent is perfectly timed for the Spring, and this is definitely a scent well suited to the Spring. It’s quite a green-blue-citrus type of scent, which gives it more of a fresh-citrus type of smell, rather than the lemon style which is synonymous with a citrus scent. There’s a big grapefruit presence, and it does feel like quite an energetic scent. It’s inoffensive, and will work well through the day as a casual scent, and has very light spicy tones.
Quite a good all rounder, I could wear this to work or just relaxing throughout the day, a Spring evening or casual night out.
You can get your bottle from 29th March 2017 priced at £26 for a 50ml bottle. Will you be picking up a bottle? Check out more of my men’s fragrance reviews for your favourite scent.
