David Beckham Homme EDT Fragrance Video Review

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

One doesn’t really expect innovation or even quality from a celeb perfume, but I must say that for the price David Beckham Homme isn’t too shabby. A lot of guys are buying equally as boring designer fragrances that cost much more.

David Beckham Homme opens with “fresh” citrus that I’ve smelled in other mainstream masculines. It’s Chinese 5 Spice with the lemon-spice Szechuan pepper and ginger. It’s spicy fresh. The rosemary is green and sharp. The next thing you know you have a mini spice cabinet following you around! The leather in Homme isn’t rugged. It smells rather “new”. The woods are masculine. It’s all an abstract modern masculine fragrance that reminds me of a freshly showered jock leaving the locker room carrying a bag of gear.

I’m a little upset with myself for thinking a sporty-ishscent branded by a soccer player that retails for 66¢ a mL smells good. But, it does. Does it smell great? No. But, it smells good and it’s what I expect from a hunky soccer player. And one can spend much more trying to smell like sexy pro soccer players.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONRefreshing citrus spice and masculine notes. It’s not a groundbreaker but people are spending at least double to smell like a sexy pro soccer player.

  1. I was in Target today and tried this. It does, indeed, remind me a lot of my husband’s Terre d’Hermes. It definitely won’t have the longevity of the Hermes, but it is quite a nice dupe for it. Good value for the price, like you said.

    1. Yep, doesn’t have the longevity of the Hermes but it doesn’t have the Hermes price tag. (I do like Terre d’Hermes much better BTW). Coty put their money in the top notes of this one which is fine but they burn off the quickest.
      But, I think DB is good for those on a budget like a teenager or college student. Smells much better than Axe!
