            My personal history with this fragrance is that I first was exposed to this fragrances when I was in high-school. A good friend of mine switched from Acqua Di Gio to Fierce and I was curious why because EVERYONE was wearing Di Gio and loving it.

            After smelling it off his dresser, I was hooked again. Another amazing smelling fragrance.

            CologneMaster Thoughts

            Abercrombie & Fitch does an amazing job on Fierce. This fact can’t be denied by it’s current popularity with the youth of the world. In 2002 when this fragrance came out (and I was in high-school, this was a hit). If people weren’t wearing Acqua Di Gio, they were most likely spraying themselves with Fierce in-between classes.

            Company image issues – In case you missed it, Abercrombie has continued to drop in sales since the CEO Mike Jeffries publicly said, “We want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don’t market to anyone other than that.”

            They have proceeded to get into trouble with hiring discrimination, and have thus been rocked with this video which now has over 8 million views.


            The bottle – This fragrance exhibits sexiness. You can see it with a beefed up shirtless dude on it. It’s a sticker so if it intimidates you, go ahead a peel it off.

            Smells like – Legend by Montblanc smells similar to Fierce but it adds a little more sophistication. If you like this fragrance, but are a little bit older? Try the Legend

            The Scent –  When you first take a whiff of Fierce, you get a blast of citrus and spice. You’ll also notice some woody smells lingering in the background.

            From initial spray to complete dry down, you’ll notice it will stay pretty linear. You won’t notice the citrus notes that you started with, but for a casual wearer, the scent will stay mostly the same unless your constantly sniffing yourself.

            When people talk about what note they smell the most of, the note they talk about is musk. Now there is no doubt that this is correct, but it’s not too musky. The same goes with the spicy and citrus notes. You can smell them, but you can’t taste them.


            It packs a punch with pretty good good strength. If you’re a teenage or younger user, you may want to keep it under 3 sprays or you’re going to smell like that deodorizer people sprinkle over vomit.

            It smells good but in large doses it smells like puke. When I spray this fragrance on, I’ll do one spray on my chest/neck area when I get out of the shower, and one on my wrist and then proceed to DAB not RUB my wrists together to spread it around.

            You’ll also find that Abercrombie & Fitch is a casual fragrance. Most kids wear it to school everyday to impress their friends and lady friends. Feel free to wear it out in casual environments.

            Don’t wear it in an environment where you’re dressing to impress. If you’re wearing a suit and tie, and not going to a high-school prom, there are going to be better fragrances in that environment.

            Fierce is also considered one of the sexiest fragrances around. You will get noticed.

            Who should wear it? Who shouldn’t?

            Wear Fierce if…

            • You want an amazing scent for young men
            • You want something casual that can be worn to school, work, shopping, grabbing groceries, etc…
            • You want something sexy but not over the top
            • You want a compliment getter
            • You want something that will last
            Don’t buy this if…

            • You don’t want to smell like every other kid in school
            • You’re looking for something to wear with a suit and tie
            • You’re 25+ years of age or older… Try Legend instead
            • You hate the Abercrombie brand… Try Montblanc’s Legend instead
            • Don’t have money to spend
