Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct – teen fragrance

Why specific teen fragrance, Can’t they simply use your exclusive collection?

So why specific teen fragrance or why Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct.We talk so long about fragrance for men. Different occasions , different weather patterns different activities. Aren’t teens suppose to be like a sub type of men?. True. They are but some fragrances are too mature and bring out very older and stable vibe. Teens are not calm and mature. They like girls . So does teen girls like active and playful guys. So you shouldnt really wore Amouage reflection man or Amouage jubilation XXV. They are way too mature and expensive for teens budget. So thinking about all these things I thought there are better suited fragrance for teens.

Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct

Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct for men introduced in 2016 by american fragrance brand Abercrombie & Fitch. The fragrance is very fresh and natural. There are lot of melon notes in it, floral notes in it and finally little bit of gin smell in it. But You won’t get too much gin smell and mainly it consist of ocean vibes and fruity notes to it. Fragrance was introduced by Phillippe romano. Due to the fact that this immature notes and sweet and active vibe gives this a teen fragrance vibe very good.

Scent and notes

Opening notes

Opening notes are melon ,gin and tonic water. Perfumer had said that the fragrance melon was inspired by a type of melon called Kiwano melon. Gives fruity and watery feeling in up top You may note though. Smell is bit synthetic.

Dry down.

In the dry down middle and base notes kicked in. Pepper, violet leaf, citrus and then the base notes amber musk suede comes in. Every time the amber and musk it gives sort of like a masculine feeling but due to the watery and fruity notes in the up top the scent become pretty immature and teens alike. Hence it become a teen fragrance.


Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct have a decent longevity. I heard some perfume reviewers say that it stays full day but according to what I experience you get 6 hours tops. Specially in summer or hot days 4 to 6 hours top. If you have a travel atomize . It would be better so that if its a whole day session then you can refresh in middle. Overall its more than enough for a teen to complete his high school day 😉


Not so much really. Gives maximum of 2 to 3 hours projection in winter and less in summer but it projects more in summer due to heat. After that it becomes 1 feet range till the longevity dry down. Please don’t expect creed avntus or dior sauvage performance from most fragrances in the world because they are hyped for a reason. So I would this is pretty decent.


A teen fragrance. If you are more than 20. You can still wore it but you have better and good alternatives that gets you better complements. Its like you can still play with your toy cars like a teen but you are ready for a real car now. Its not match well. So Do yourself a favor and gets a great fragrance for compliments. All in all Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct can be wore for mostly in all year around and almost every occasion . Great versatility.

Both does not give fancy feeling. Just plain black box with silver colored left line. (You can forget the overcoat. Its shit) . But man bottle is the king. It has the niche fragrance level quality bottle. I really love it. One side its like a water drops into a calm surface water while the other side is like ocean waves. Side has solid metal touch wiith the name embedded to it. Very heavy bottle and so do the cap. Its metal and good quality. I give my best mark for bottle. Sprayer is cool. Mist is okay. Better.


Before the hype, You could have pretty much buy 100ml bottle for 25 to 30$. But after the hype, it went up But still you can buy the range between 30$ to 40$ . That is one good thing about Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct. Its cheap and affordable to teens. Such another quality of teen fragrance.
