its borderline criminal charging money for this stuff


You could say that about 90% of things posted on here....
Just in case anyone is interested, here's a link amazon.co.uk/Dav…8-1

I may well give it a try, so heat from me. Note: It also says 'Prime Exclusive' on the listing.

AHH this one's not too bad.. also they do a matching shower hell for about 2quid. But agree most Beckham smells not great for the price. But the instinct is like slightly more upmarket.. whilst still being low end of the market. Hard to explain.
You would think this would be out of date considering beckham was popular 20 years ago!
I love the blind criticism...

This isn't actually too bad at all. It's a weak but not entirely unpleasant citric, soapy fougère with a hint of vetiver. If it had more naturals/higher quality ingredients it would be a great purchase. The perfumers have done very well with a restrictive budget and have produced a very nice fragrance with moderate to poor performance and with a cheapness that a discerning nose would screw their face up at.

But guys...it's £8.46! I can't think of anything at this price point that does a better job and if the perfectly pleasant scent profile gets people investigating notes and looking into better quality options, then I'm all for it. If I were a younger man whose grandparents were shopping for stocking-fillers...I'd rather a cheap fougère than a cheap blue.

with my 'blind' understanding... i read what you wrote as...

what are you guys on about this is a really good but bad perfume, with good and bad smell and good and bad ingredients and is good bad quality, if it was a better perfume then it wouldnt be a bad purchase which is good, its performance is bad but good or could be good if it wasn't bad. but hey, its £8, which is good for a bad priced perfume. i cant think of anything better that is worse. its so good you should look for something better, and if i was younger when im a grandparent id rather a cheaper expensive one?

Clear as mud, thanks for your assistance, my understanding is now a lot better at not understanding

My apologies - I didn't realise I had to dumb down for people whose attention span doesn't permit them reading at an adult level of comprehension:

Good for what is a very low price. Bad if you have unrealistic expectations of what you can get for sub-£10.

I happen to think my first post had greater potential to be helpful vs. your: "It's borderline criminal charging money for this stuff"

I think there is a big difference in me and you... i looked down my nose at an item... you look down your nose at people.

'i love your blind criticism' implying lack of knowledge gives one no right to have a view... followed up by a paragraph of 'thus is how much knowledge one should have before being worthy of an opinion' Get over yourself.

then your follow up just slam dunks how far up your own ... your nose is when you state 'I didn't realise I had to dumb down for people whose attention span doesn't permit them reading at an adult level of comprehension'


I am sorry if i don't belong with your people. I am much happier among others that do not judge because of degrees, wealth or 'class'.

Nobody on here is looking down on anyone or getting personal except you. I didn't address you specifically in my original post and my inference when I said "blind" was not that there was a lack of knowledge or that certain opinions weren't valid, more that when you insult something or someone without any explanation/justification it heavily suggests that the opinion isn't informed (in the sense that I don't believe you own/have extensive experience of the item in question) - it certainly isn't helpful.

My original post was me genuinely trying to advise from a position of owning a bottle of the fragrance in the deal and having an opinion that happens to differ from your own. I'm okay with people having different opinions to mine...my observation was that you didn't even attempt to articulate one.

If you took offence at my 2nd post referring to me "dumbing down" my opinion and talking about lack of reading comprehension, I apologise. I must stress that it was a reaction to you belittling my contribution/insulting me with little provocation.

If you're not here to contribute, I suggest you move along. My sincere apologies to anyone else who wastes their time reading this - hopefully you know from my contributions elsewhere that anything I post comes from a place of passion and a desire to assist where I can. Certainly it's not snobbish (I'm defending an £8 David Beckham fragrance here!)

PS. Please don't make assumptions about my class or wealth. You don't know a thing about me. I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "degrees" (I certainly didn't mention it) but I presume you're referring to Higher Education? Yes, I have a degree and while we're on the topic, it was heavily subsidised by income-based adjustments and grants that I'm very grateful for.

I'm tempted to try the Beckham beyond one but really shouldn't, already bought 5 bottles this month. If you like a nice cheap fougere check out brutal intense by la rive which I got on eBay for 4.70 plus postage. It's from Poland so postage was 7 quid but it's still a bargain for how nice it is.
