212 Sexy Just Not Alluring Enough
A sweet and spicy floral that turns to powder on me, rather quickly. The bottles are interesting, almost seeming like a BOGO, encased in a cylindrical tube. Although this lasts for a decent amount of time, about 6 hours, nothing about it proved remarkably sexy. It's a nice floriental that sits close to the skin. Do I get vanilla? Hardly. The lemony pelargonium, the tea-infused bergamot, the spice of pink pepper all start well and mix with the milkiness of the sandalwood to begin 212 Sexy off to a good start. If only it would stay that way on me. Down to a slightly musky powder, without any sexiness, a few hours later, this perfume's gusto is gone.
Basically a pretty scent that's good for the office and quiet times that won't intrude on another's space, but just not sensuous or alluring at all.

Smooth and Spicy - Love or Hate
"Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy" is on me a mood-stone scent. Some days my chemistry loves the deep dark and heavy notes and sometimes the pepper note stands out too much and I find its too heavy and *complex*. Yet when I am in the right mood and it's a bit cool outside this beauty warms up and gets effortlessly a lot of attention (especially from men).

I get heady gardenia with a dash of pepper an aura of bergamot and then more florals which are all leaning on a base of smooth, warm amber and sandalwood.

It's a sexy scent, if your chemistry agrees, and I can easily see why many people would find this too much of *something* to be comfortable. It's very 'chemistry dependent' and by no means a shy, demure and office friendly scent, no, its more of a sexy evening out or wild date night scent - those dates where you wear a butter smooth leather dress, stilettos and deep red Chanel lipstick.

Love it or hate it, but try it on your skin before purchase!

Silage is: smooth amber surrounded with heavy white florals dipped in a drop of bergamot and a pinch of pepper - longevity is: 6+ hours in which the amber and sandalwood notes get warmer ad project more prominently.

Sweet, peppery incense
Talk about spices, incense and powder, 212 Sexy is all that and more.

This is sexy in its own unique way. The spices make it exotic while the incense note gives it such a mysterious aura. There is a subtle hint of sweetness throughout this scent, but I can safely say that this isn't sickeningly sweet, it's sophisticated and well-composed.

The spices in 212 Sexy are what do it for me, it gives this fragrance the 'wow factor'. I actually don't get much in the way of the floral notes, the gardenia is only very subtle. I'm convinced there is some other spice or herb in this scent, not just pink pepper.

I love this fragrance for the simple reason that it smells wild and seductive. It has all the intrigue and allure of something foreign and exotic.

I do urge you to test this on your skin before buying, a blind buy would be very risky. Spicy and musky fragrances are often the hardest scents to compliment skin chemistry. However, if the perfume suits, then you have won yourself a very sexy little number.

Citrusy top, floral heart, musky base. Clean with a bit of sweetness, very teen-age scent. Do not get any sexiness. Meh-type for me.
