Launched by Carolina Herrera in 1999, two years after its feminine counterpart, 212 Men is a woody floral musk fragrance, developed by perfumers Alberto Morillas, Rosendo Mateu and Ann Gottlieb. The targeted customer is represented by the gentle young man who has the advantage of a classic spirit. This man would not give up the core values of his personality and is capable to appreciate the life’s traditions. For this character, the enchantment of life consists in waking up every morning next to his beloved partner, in a city that never sleeps and accompanied by his special fragrance.
The construction of 212 Men is elegant and restrained, unveiling its special, surprising and attractive character. 212 Men opens with a blend of bergamot and pleasant lavender, followed by green notes. Then, in the mid development, the accords are replaced by spicy floral mix of green pepper and ginger with gardenia and violet. The dry down settles the musky facet of 212 Men in a combination of sandalwood, vetiver, guaiac wood and white musk, highlighted with a remarkable aroma of incense. This stage marks the manly signature of the scent.
The fragrance is enclosed in a cylindrical shaped bottle made of opaque glass, in which the longitudinal orientation of the writing complements an interesting image. The advertising video presents the special life of a New Yorker man, captured in his most intimate moments. 212 Men is the fragrance that makes the difference between a young classic with style, and a perfume that does not own this essential quality.
