Review of Transformers Bumblebee Eau de Toilette

Marmol & Son's Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Bumblebee 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray for Men.

I had to review this for my husband, Steve. He is a collector of the Transformers action figures and related accessories. This fragrance came out in 2009 and everyone who is into Transformers was talking about it on the discussion boards, but no one reviewed the fragrance or knew the notes of the cologne to describe it. So, I decided to do the old sniff test and tell you what I think.

At first spray, you might think that a fragrance named after a Transformer would smell like brake dust, oil and gasoline, but no, it starts off with a burst of bright citrus notes, heavy on the lemon, limes, bergamot and grapefruit. Then a sexy musky undertone filled with notes of ferns, moss and possibly leather completes the drydown. The fragrance is soapy, clean and smells shower fresh, just the way a man should smell. The overall effect smells a lot like Ck One to my nose. My husband likes it, I think it smells great too.

This would be great as a pick me up scent to spray on throughout the day as it doesn't last longer than 15 minutes.The juice is yellow which instantly makes me think of citrus. The bottle is clear glass, with a large label of the Bumblebee character.  The cap is bright yellow and black which correspond to the character's colors. The fragrance was officially licensed by Hasbro and manufactured by Marmol & Son, who also make Disney's line of fragrances for kids.

If you are a die hard Transformers collector, this would be quite cool to have in your collection.  I haven't had the opportunity to review the bottle of the Optimus Prime eau de toilette yet.
