I think it smells really good. It's always one of those things that I mean to buy, just never get around to. What's great is that not that many people use it, so it has some uniqueness. As for my next cologne purchase im gonna buy the new Gendarme; it's only available at Barney's, so the exclusivity is a major plus.

I purchased another Barney's exclusive when I was in NYC last week- CoStume National- like it a lot.

Is that different that regular 212 (which is the most amazing cologne)?

not a big deal, but just out of curiosity, do you pronounce 212 and "two-one-two" or "two-twelve"?

I think that it is supposed to be two one two, like the NYC area code.

I tested 212 on Ice this past weekend at Bloomingdale's.  In my opinion, it smells like a lemony cleaning agent.  You're better off sticking with the original 212.

Chaser,
I agree with you, although it smells good, I think I am going to purchase Hugo Boss' new cologne (forget the name) but it has a more masculine smell to it and comes in a funky spherical bottle.
