I forgot I even had a bottle of this. A few years ago, a member of Fragrantica who liked my blog sent me a bunch of bottles of stuff he never wore, thinking I might like them and review them. Donald Trump The Fragrance was one of the bottles he’d sent me, and it’s been sitting in the back of a drawer in my office since that time. I don’t even remember if I’d sampled it when I first got it.
Donald Trump The Fragrance may not be unique, and it may not be great, but it’s a good scent. I’d describe it as a spicy cucumber and citrus fragrance. It is very similar to Polo Blue, which is a mediocre perfume, only it’s better. DTTF is smoother and less chemically synthetic smelling than Polo Blue, and it has much better staying power and stronger sillage. I’m not a fan of Polo Blue because it smells ascerbic and vinegary, even in small doses – DTTF, if applied in small doses, does not have that astringency. I would think if you overspray it, DTTF would smell awful, but with two or three spritzes, you’re good. The scent lasts all day on my skin. DTTF smells crisp and clean, and I like it, even though it’s not really my style.
Sure, Trump’s a dick, but this is actually pretty good. It's one of the better celebrity fragrances I've tried.
MY RATING: 7.5/10
