When it comes to writing the content for a review, I have two basic rules: a) not to use too many comparisons with other perfumes; b) try to make it different from the previous ones. The reason behind rule a) is that, if I described a perfume with constant comparisons with another, and you don’t know second one, what you read is completely useless to you. And the reason behind rule b) is that – at least in principle – every perfume is different, even when it’s very similar to others, so it deserves a different review.
At least in principle… until reality knocked at my door in the shape of 212 Vip Men Carolina Herrera, and here is where I raise my white flag: it is the perfect copycat of One Million Paco Rabanne.
I have both of them on my wrists and, except for a boozy and fresher start of 212 VIP men (a vodka note), and the fact that it’s slightly less dirty (two comparisons are allowed), the only reason why I can tell one from the other is that I remember which one I sprayed on the left and which one on the right.
Rule b) failed me today, and the only Carolina Herrera 212 Vip Men Review possible is this one.
