Coty Gravity Cologne Spray
Availability: fine retail stores
A sharp, oriental woody that’s become a classic within the house of Coty.
What we say:
‘When agreeing to test scents I did it blindly, and swore I would wear whatever I got, men’s, women’s, the good the bad or the ugly. Unfortunately I only lasted one day with this one. I feared I smelled like those over-cologned men you surreptitiously take a step away from in the bank queue. Ironically the first time I wore it, my partner pronounced that I smelt like flowers! Aarg, only through no sense of shame was I able to leave the house convinced I was enveloped in an almost visible cloud of sugar.
‘So how to describe the scent: sweet, fresh and definitely strong.
‘The name “gravity” is definitely apt – it has power and strength and is suited to a tall dark handsome stranger. Not a beach bum like me. So to be fair, we tested it on my olive complexion partner – and the verdict was “showers” not “flowers”. The strength of the scent was still there but now it smelt more sexy.
‘Scent is a matter of personal preference, and personally I prefer men who smell less intense and sweet. So, this definitely did not work for me, not because it’s necessarily a bad cologne, but simply because I am just not man enough.’
