Beckham Signature is a fragrance that opens as a fruity, aromatic, fresh smelling scent. Unfortunately, it doesn't get better than this.
You'll notice the aqua and watermelon notes, so if you love those smells, this might be worth a pick.
As it dries down, the fragrance starts to get bitter or tart. It loses that fresh smelling fruity opening.
Beckham maxes out at about 3-4 hours of life. This is perfect if you just need to grab some groceries, hit the gym, or grab a pizza. Later on you'll be able to put something else on and Beckham won't be detected. Since you can find it online for less than $15, it makes sense to give it a try as a situational fragrance.
A citrus opening with orange, a melon impression, and a slightly ozonic undertone. A juniper drydown with whiffs of a bright but restrained bergamot consolidate the impression of a mix of fresh and summery heart notes, but it lacks some of the refreshing invigoration that citrus-based scent usually provide so well.
in the base a white musky-ambery undertone develops - pleasant and a bit dull.
The perfomance is very good, with moderate sillage, good projection and an impressive ten hours of longevity on my skin - more than what citrus scents and celebrity fragrances usually offer.
In summary a nice summary composition, a bit too synthetic and restrained at timebut well-blended. 2.75/5.
For the price, this is a nice youthful and fun fragrance. Being a cheapie, all the nice ingredients are loaded into the first two hours and then your are left with a pleasant musk that continues to project.
I notice that comments about performance vary. My suspicion is that performance is dependent on application method. I felt that longevity was good and projection was excellent.
I think this best suits guys under 30 that don't analyse fragrance too much and just want to smell good and have decent projection.
For those seeking an upgrade, Calvin Klein Eternity Now is slightly less brash.
This is beautifully balanced and lovely. The melon is muted, wrapped inside the juniper berry, cypress, and aquatic tones. It is as fresh as a light northern breeze on a Spring night and the white amber finish is long-lasting and head-turning. This will get you compliments.
Marine scented with a slight melon and patchouli note. This is another one of those frags that are ok for the price ($17.00 at Marshalls). I tested with two sprays on the back of my hand and surprisingly the scent lasted for about 5 hours. The scent is not cloying and very safe. For the price, overall scent, projection and longevity you might wnat to check this one out.
And this is coming from someone who doesn't care too much for a lot of celebrity scents.
