Abercrombie And Fitch First Instinct Perfume Review:
First instinct is a fragrance designed by Abercrombie and Fitch, blended for the men who live by their first instinct. It claims to be an addictive and irresistible fragrance that represents the alchemy and pure magic created between a couple in their first meeting. Two pairs of eyes that meet, two worlds that are intertwined and a spark that lights up together with a shiver down the spine .”First Instinct” wants to recall all this, a fragrance reminiscent of that moment of chemistry that is created almost by accident when two eyes meet.
This modern fragrance opens with Electronic Gin and Tonic combined with Kiwano Melon. In the heart, Szechuan pepper ignites the spark to attraction while violet leaves bring depth and a citrus twist.
The base is made up of Suede musk and sleek warm amber, creating the perfect blend of fresh elements of fougere and oriental warmth.
Below is a summary on the notes:
Top Note : Mix of Gin Tonic, Kiwano Melon,
Middle Notes : Pepper, Violet Leaves, Citrus
Base Notes : Musk, Amber
My experience with this Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct Perfume:
First instinct is a spicy fragrance with soft intensity.The perfume is clear in color and the bottle has a simple, elegant design with silver-metallic touch to it. I quite love the smell of this perfume which despite being spicy,isn’t very strong on your nose. The top notes do linger for a while and then fade away to musky fragrance. The only issue is that it fades away too fast. The fragrance in itself is subtle and doesn’t linger on for a long time. I believe it might stay put longer if used along with the First Instinct body gel, however I haven’t tried it yet so can’t say much. Even though middle notes consist of pepper, violet leaves and citrus fragrances, I could only feel a bit of pepper spiciness in the overall fragrance.
Check out a quick summary of likes and dislikes that I’ve felt about this perfume:
1) Sleek, classy and simple bottle design that looks elegant.
2) Good fragrance for people who like spicy, musky fragrances, yet don’t want it too strong.
3) Quite manly (no doubts there!)
1) The fragrance doesn’t last long.

Overall, it is a nice product, however I am not sure if I’d like to purchase it again. It can be a nice-to-have fragrance in your collection, but not a must-have for sure.
