URghhhh I sit beside a girl that wears this and it is gross! Super synthetic and cheap smelling.

At first spritz I didn't like it, then, wow, love. I'm no good at describing scents and I'm quite picky with them, but thumbs up for this one. (My taste is MJ Daisy and GA Code among other few)

what I really like about this perfume is that it is sweet but yet not like just another girly smell. It has something feminine and sexy to it, and reminds of a person who is really strong and really a VIP. I love it

Well, i kinda liked it at the beggining, but then i grew tired of it. Its sweetness was too much for me, i so prefer the Carolina H. 212.

This kicks off with a burst of sweetness somewhere between cotton candy and the fruity cocktails with umbrellas that macho men never dare to order. I have smelled this, or others similar, on countless mornings riding the tram and on almost every visit to the perfume store.
It is inoffensive, pleasant enough and common. If a woman wearing this passed me on the street, it would not register much of a reaction except that she was wearing perfume.
After about an hour, this turns into little else but a synthetic musk on me. I would advise against impulse-buying just because you like the initial burst of sweetness. It does not last.

The fisrt time i tried this i was not a fan, but then a bit of perfume got sticked in my finger and was so good that i was consedering buying the full size. But then just to make sure i liked it i went to other store and put it on and no, i won't buy it, no way. The perfume starts with a sweet and strong scent, i can smell the passion fruit in the begging, but than the perfume dried down and is not a plesant thing. I found a sweett but very masculine scent to it, and i was strange, this isn't for mens but i tought they weren't able to build the fragrance very well, and the musk was just boring, didn't like it.

If you like vanilla-scented and sexy smells, this definitely is the one! I got a sample last christmas, and instantly fell in love. This is not a floral smell at all, and for me that`s a plus (can not stand floral scents..). This might me too heavy to use in summer (at least in the day) though, because it is quite strong. But for fall and winter it seems perfect.

I absolutely love this smell!
I will definitely buy it again, and I have never bought the same fragrance twice. All of the fragrances I've tried were good, but not quite there, and this one is definitely IT!
I'm not too good at describing scents, but it's a bit sweet, exotic, and has a hint of vanilla (I ADORE vanilla).
And the best thing: It last almost my entire day (about 10 hours).
It's a bit pricey than other fragrances, but totally worth it.

Well, this may not be the most original or lifechanging fragrance I ever came by,but it has already gotten me compliments (which I hardly ever get wearing my usual stuff). What do you know.
I received a special Xmas boxset of this as a present by someone who apparently knows my taste in scents very well (I'm into vanilla based fragrances mostly and I appreciate gourmands). As I hadn't sniffed it and I received it in the holidays, I had to wait for the stores to open again so that I could decide whether to open it or not. Torture I tell you:-) It was worth the wait though, because when I did sniff it I knew right away it would be a keeper.
This scent is definitely on the oriental side. It's sweet and potent enough, but I'd call it feminine and sexy rather than gourmand. It opens with strong sweet notes, that remind me a lot of Carolina's 212 Sexy frag (which I like a lot but never owned). At times it even brings Flowerbomb to mind; I think I get whiffs of something similar too. Then it dries down to a warm, less sweet but very feminine and sexy scent. I get kind of a NR For Her vibe from the drydown.
As you can probably tell, this fragrance screams female. Very sexy, present, sultry and enticing. And as I mentioned it got me compliments. And I feel very confident wearing it. Unless you'll settle for nothing but clean, you can't really go wrong with this scent I think.
The bottle's attractive and the box set it came in gorgeous (both clean and geometric, but all mirror shiny gold). With it also came a small version of the matching body lotion, and I have to say, it's even better than the fragrance, as it keeps the delicious scent, but lacks the initial sharpness. It's an even prettier, softer version of it.
All in all, I can't say if this will ever be HG for me, but I plan to wear it and enjoy it a lot.

Better than the original 212 and 212 Sexy with longer lasting power. More oriental and extra-ordinary. But still, I do not think it's the perfect choice for me.

Gorgeous!!! this is the new one of Carolina Herrera's fragrance line its the big solid gold bullet/flask shape really sleek and simple slightly futuristic looking with a magnetic lock lid, im not too fussed on what a bottle looks like so i never judge a perfume by its bottle!!
I bought this as I have loved 212 SEXY for years, sampled out of curiosity, its definately in the same family of fragrance as 212 sexy but definately distinctively different. It lasts a whole lot longer and is slightly stronger as well, I cant imagine that you could like one and not the other

description on fragrantica :
"212 VIP is glamorous and exclusive in its composition, which was developed by the perfumer Alberto Morillas, inspired by the energetic life of New York metropolis, the city that never sleeps. Fresh aromas of seductive rum and passion fruit from the beginning of the compositions will take you to the musk and gardenia heart, and then to the soft base of vanilla and tonka bean."
so I would say its a fairly young fragrance under 35's perhaps, I find it bold, sweet and spicy, a bit masculine in that fresh scent way- definately not sweet and cloying. It is ambery, warm and very very sexy, I use it day and night love the way it makes my clothes smell the next day it stays fresh smelling and does not turn stale.
I only have 3 or perfumes on the go at a time I dont like them lying around for years so I dont spend that much really. I also keep them out of direct sunlight to avoid the scents changing and going off not worth reducing life span of perfume for vanity I can show off my plenty of other things that wont be affected by the sunlight, also keep out of bathrooms as heat will alter your fragrance.
