This is a woody floral musk fragrance for men that was first released at the turn of the new millennium, 1999. "212" being the area code of the Big Apple, 212 Men NYC is designed to evoke the cosmopolitan and faced-paced nature of the greatest city in the world. The note profile from top to base is impressive. Top notes are green notes, grapefruit, spices, bergamot, lavender and petitgrain. The middle notes are ginger, violet, gardenia, and sage. Base notes are musk, sandalwood, incense, vetiver, guaiac wood and labdanum. Alberto Morillas strikes again in coordination with Gottlieb and Mateu to create this men's cologne staple.
