Formerly cheap, now cheap
New York used to be one of the decent Playboy fragrances along with VIP and London. Sometime between 14 and 16 times to get a birthday and positively surprised. The fragrance was the first perfume to convince. Fresh, sweet and youthful the good drop. And this at a price of approx. 5 - 10€ / 100ml. The durability is rather poor, but it has always been enough for school. For me at that time a sufficient and above all affordable fragrance, which was bought accordingly often. The one or other compliment from those of the same age was also paid to New York - what more could you want? At some point, I lost sight of Playboy. In the meantime it was reissued with a new flacon, so that I was hooked by the low price again. Instead of the hoped-for nostalgia, however, the first scent impression was biting alcohol and after that...nothing. Only after a few minutes the somewhat familiar sweetish note slowly emerges, only to vanish completely after 2 hours, weakening and disappointing. Fake? Bad batch? A newly ordered 3 months younger batch delivered the same result. For checking purposes I ordered the Playboy London - also in the new flacon. This one still smells pretty good I am therefore disappointed. Formerly a buy recommendation for the young owner of a chronically empty wallet. In the meantime I can't recommend this fragrance to anyone, even for 5€. Then I'd rather go to London.
