Boyfriend Boyfriend

She inhales his shirt, taking in the scent of the man she loves. It lingers on her clothes, her sheets, her hair—all over. Imprinted on her body and in her mind, it radiates within her, filling her with feelings of warmth and desire. Actress Kate Walsh wanted to capture the scent of a guy on a girl: a man's cologne mixed with perfume, the smell that lingers on the skin. This fragrance evokes memories of that time after he has left for the day—when she gently awakes in a bed that's still warmly redolent of "boyfriend." An alluring balance of vanilla, jasmine blossoms, and an accord of amber is set against the sensual scents of a man, including a light musk and a shimmer of fresh woods. Notes:Dark Plum, Myrrh, Night Blooming Jasmine, Benzoin Tears, Skin Musk, Golden Amber, Vanilla Woods. Style:Sensual. Vanilla. Amber.

Question
Is scent similar to discontinued Hollister August?
I used to LOVE the smell of Hollister August, but it's been discontinued for some time now. It smelled like men/girly to me and I loved the scent and got so many compliments. Can anyone tell me if this is similar if you've tried both? Been trying to find something like August ever since it was gone!
Thanks

This has a lot of the same notes that Hollister August had (I used to love that stuff, can't believe they discontinued it). If you liked Hollister August you should definitely give Boyfriend a shot. It has much the same woodsy smell and I think you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Don't know what August smells like... but if it smells like it's name, Boyfriend should be similar. I bought the roll-on to start and I'm going to stick with it. doesn't apply too much, though I do have to reapply a couple of hours later. I don't apply much, just enough that I smell or if someone gets close enough :) !

I'm not familiar w/ the Hollister scent, but "Boyfriend" reminds me a little of "Calvin Klein- Euphoria" or maybe even "Thierry Mugler -Angel." It's definitely a "woman" scent to me, but has an earthy, sweet + musky tone. Of the three I mentioned, I have used them all and definitely like Boyfriend the best. Hope this helps!

answer 9
(As a starter, I have written a review about Boyfriend (recently) if you'd like to read that as well.)
I have smelled both (in the bottle & on my skin) & my answer is no. Unequivocally no. I really liked August, but Boyfriend smells absolutely nothing like August (in my opinion of course). Boyfriend smells overpoweringly musky (to where that is all you can smell), 'dirty' (like oily almost...hard to explain), like an old man...smells very...well 'old' (August had a much younger feel i think), this is powdery & 'flat' (i couldn't differentiate top or bottom notes), Boyfriend doesn't smell feminine in any way to me. I smell nothing but an 'old man' scent from beginning to end... August had a good balance between masculinity & femininity; boyfriend is 100% masculine. August was younger, more vibrant but still soft. Boyfriend is not... I think you would get a better end result if you sprayed men's cologne on either by itself or ontop of your own perfume...nearly anything would be better than this.
Who knows though, maybe you'll like it. I would recommend smelling it either way. But no, I would not compare it to August in any way.

This scent especially the roll on oil is very mescaline with a sweet side. When you smell you don't quite know if it's for men or women, I've never smelled the hollister scent so I can't compare, but this will not dissappoint.

I haven't smelled Hollister August so I can't really compare the two. It does have a masculine scent to it though. It has a very woody smell to me and that's what I smell the most. I would definitely suggest going in to a store and trying it out and seeing if it's similar to you.

It's a rollerball. So easy to use. Since it's a dry oil, it doesn't show up on your skin like water or alcohol based perfumes do. It actually soaks into your skin almost immediately and it lasts a long time.

The EDP and roller ball smell slightly different when first put on... the pulse point roller ball (which I believe is a dry oil) goes on with a much stronger vanilla note at first, but fades to the smell of the EDP if you rub your wrists together... Also, the scent of the roller ball seems to last longer.
