Floral first, then fruity to my nose. I find it work appropriate because it seems to stay close to the body and if not, it just smells like "fresh" anyway. It's really well done, actually for its category. I also have Charlie Silver and that is similar but the White is more formal with the floral and less fruity and the Silver is more watermelon and citrus (it's great too). This fragrance lasts about 6 hours on me and I spray quite liberally. I don't find that the fragrance changes much after hours of wear, it seems to stay pretty true to the first spritz. If anything, the fruit comes out a bit more after awhile, but nothing else noticeable.
Very aquatic fruity flora, bit fizzy like a previous reviewer mentioned. Unlike any scent I have ever smelled, it stands alone in it's fruity soapy mix. Shower fresh can be delectable. This is my every day work and weeked scent that goes on perefeclty casual and not overwhelming. Not sold year round, I have already purchased a few back-ups.
Funny, on me this smeels Fizzy, like a fizzy candy. And i always get compliments on it. I can't smell it on myself , however people tell me I smell wonderful 7 hours after I put this on
I'll start off by saying I've never tried the other Charlie scents; this was my first foray into the Revlon fragrance line.
Each note listed is one of my favorite notes. This perfume seemed like it'd be a godsend, so I bought a bottle unsniffed, and must say I'm unimpressed... maybe a little put off, too, to tell the truth.
It started with the bottle. Normally the bottle is of little consequence, but whatever it's made out of feels perpetually dusty or dirty. That's the smell I get when WEARING Charlie White - dust.
To be more specific, it's dust and flowers, of course. I get no peach or watermelon, no aquatic feeling, just dust and flowers. It isn't terrible, but it certainly isn't something I'll wear, and if I come across anyone who will make better use of it, I would hand it to them without flinching.
I tried Charlie White because it's at Walgreens for $9.99 for a fairly sizable bottle.
This is a nice light white floral with perhaps a little citrus twist. It dries down to smell quite soapy (as does the regular Charlie and Charlie Red on me). So it smells like good quality white floral soap. Not cheap smelling but certainly not sophisticated. Pretty good for a drug store brand.
While I do like this I don't quite want to smell just like soap. But 2 lippies for being nice and unoffensive.
I have a huge bottle of this that was only $9.99 at Rite Aid. It smells fresh, soft, and sophisticated. The feeling I get when I smell this reminds me of the feeling I get looking at a dogwood tree. Too bad the ingredients are cheap and alcohol-based, and the wonderful fragrance fades after about two hours.
This smells a lot like hairspray. I don't mind the scent, but it's not something I would go out of my way to buy. So many better fragrances out there to try, drugstore or otherwise. I got this in a set after Christmas for a STEAL, less than three dollars, with the original Charlie and Charlie Red which is my favorite of the Charlies. So overall it was not a loss, but I would not buy Charlie White again.
This is a light, bright, fun summer floral which is never too overpowering and has fairly decent lasting qualities. Peaches1027 nailed it when she said that it is bright and sheer at the same time, and also that it is really very strong and sharp when you first spray it on. However it only takes about 10 minutes for the harshness to disappear and reveal the heart of the perfume. A light, easy to wear floral that will suit anyone who likes florals that are not too sweet. I have ticked that I would not rebuy simply because I like much deeper, musk based florals, however a girlfriend of mine has this as her signature perfume, so if it suits you, go for it.
In my quest to sample every drugstore perfume on the market, I tried this on at the Walgreen's today. It was on sale for $2.50, and since I'm getting cheap in my old age, this jumped out at me. When I first sprayed it on, the sharpness was almost painful. It was truly awful. However, I smelled myself again about five minutes later, and this had dried down to a very pretty floral. It is bright and sheer and soft all at the same time, and it does sit close to the skin like another reviewer said. I've had this on for three and a half hours, and I can still smell it and I still love it. I am going to the Walgreen's tomorrow and snatching this up. What a great find.
I tend to buy this when it's on sale at christmas time in small sizes. I have received complements on this one. It's fresh with a hint of sweetness.
