First Instinct Extreme (A Fragrance Review)

Gentlemen, did you know that wearing a fragrance will increase not only your attractiveness, but your confidence with women (and in general) as well. So I make sure I choose perfumes wisely. A fragrance can foster deeper emotional connections with people. It is an invisible part of our personal style but it has a powerful effect on how people see and remember you. Actually if I smell the same perfume my ex girlfriend always wear, a picture of her comes flooding back to me. Don’t worry I’ve finally moved on….or not. Haha!

I went to a friend’s party before and I met a girl and complimented my scent, she said “You smell wonderful”. That might be a flirting technique or something (wow pogi haha!) but I had to admit that this compliment from a beautiful woman had me feeling good the entire night. And that’s why fragrance really matters, gents.

So I want share to you guys my current favourite fragrance from Abercrombie and Fitch, First Instinct Extreme.

This is a masculine and fruity  perfume. When I tried it on the first time I was actually surprised cause I thought it was going to be beastly strong but it’s not. It has the masculinity but also has the playful sweetness in it. The opening is good, the dry down is pleasant. It will keep you smelling nice for 5-10 hours. It’s worth the try and buy for me. This perfume really suits my personality.

First instinct Extreme notes:

  • Top notes: Gin & tonic accord, Kiwano. The top note is the initial, lighter smell of the fragrance that hits the nose immediately after application to the skin. The top note lasts from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Middle Notes: Citrus, Sichuan pepper, Violet leaf. The middle note showcases the main element of the fragrance. Middle notes develop after the top note clears and can last 3-5 hours after being sprayed.
  • Base notes: Suede, Amber, Musk. The last to develop, these scents are often the bolder notes of the scent which become more noticeable later in the day. Base notes lay the foundation and will determine how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. They tend to last from 5 to 10 hours.
