Inspired by that first moment of attraction, when two people's worlds collide and a spark is ignited, 'First Instinct' is the interpretation of that exciting first glance and the initial connection felt.

Abercrombie & Fitch's new fragrance, developed exclusively with Inter Parfums, is all about being naturally sexy, confident, and not afraid to express his deepest feelings. A rugged risk taker, he is sure to capture you with his energy and effortless charm.
Effortless charm. *ahem*
"I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougere with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond," - Phillippe Romano, First Instinct Perfumer.

With a base of amber and musk, Szechuan pepper in the mid-notes, and gin & tonic and melon to finish off the sensory experience in the top notes, 'First Instinct' is a modern masculine blend.

Let's get to know 'First Instinct' a little bit better.

Fragrance Family: Fougere Aromatic Amber

Top: Electric gin & tonic combined with Kiwano Melon jumpstarts the scent amplifying the moment, the excitement, the adrenaline, and fresh youthful optimism.
Rooted in Abercrombie & Fitch's heritage. the packaging demonstrates an attention to detail. The clean bottle shape features a unique design element, in an undulated surface on the front and back, whilst the clear glass lets the slate hue of the fragrance come through.
Mid: Szechuan pepper ignites the spark to heat up the magnetic attraction while violet leaves bring depth and an interesting citrus twist to capture warm, textured masculinity.
The silver accents in the textured utilitarian metal cap and branded plate on one side of the bottle, give the packaging a strong style statement.
Base: Sueded musk sensually mingles with sleek raw amber building an exciting tension and pure addiction that can't be stopped.

What I think: Abercrombie & Fitch's 'First Instinct' is the kind of scent you wear if you wanna make a strong and lasting first impression and I think one to two (max) spray is enough for you to achieve that. I suggest wearing it with a simple t-shirt and jeans look (nothing too flashy or formal) and let the scent do its work in creating that "spark" on people around you.
