Like a rush of adrenaline, Abercrombie & Fitch Authentic Moment Man is a vibrant and exciting signature scent. Although it’s marketed towards men, I love how Authentic Moment starts with a fresh zingy tone, but its cosy vanilla dry down brings a sensuous unisex quality. Read on to find out more about this fragrance…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Walking the line between fresh and warm, Authentic Moment Man opens with a burst of citrusy green bergamot. The bergamot blends with the heart of neroli for an overall rich green tone with just a hint of citrus. The base takes the scent in a new direction, emphasising the hidden warmth of neroli as the rich, sweet and seductive vanilla bean note warms to the forefront.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Designed to capture the feeling of adrenaline and the playful nature of anticipation, Authentic Moment is inspired by new possibilities and the moment they unfold.
You Will Love This If…
If you love vanilla scents and you’re looking for a more typically masculine twist, you’ll love the divide between cool citrus and sensuous ambery vanilla in Authentic Moment.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
Authentic Moment Man has a similar vibe to Hugo Boss BOSS Bottled EDT; they both have a crisp opening and warm vanilla base. BOSS Bottled has a touch more spice and a woodier dry down compared to the slightly lighter Authentic Moment.
Is Authentic Moment Man Unisex?
Though marketed towards a male audience, the fresh bergamot note and hint of sweetness that comes with a vanilla base gives the scent a unisex quality, in my opinion.
What’s The Longevity Like?
As an Eau de Toilette, Authentic Moment Man is not overpowering but it has good lasting power, lingering on the skin for up to four hours. The fragrance can be topped up throughout the day, though we would recommend avoiding spraying onto light coloured clothing as it has a slightly green tone once spritzed.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The bottle is topped with a magnetic cap that makes a satisfying click as it rushes into place. The leather accents contrasted with the clear, double-walled glass design is striking yet understated, making Authentic Moment sit proudly in any fragrance collection.
