Thrilling, rich, and deeply sexy, Side Effect is a harmonious blend of tobacco, vanilla, rum and coffee that tantalizes the senses and awakens the spirit. Ignited with spices and anchored by a warm base with elements of leather and woods, it invites you in with vibrant energy, then soothes and seduces with smooth confidence. With an undeniable animal magnetism, Side Effect is guaranteed to garner attention- but maybe that was your intention all along?
One of the best fragrances I ever owned!
As simple as the tittle says.
It's a good scent, but not what I was looking for.
I enjoyed all the fragrances I sampled with this order (five total), but "Side Effect" was so phenomenal I had to buy a full bottle immediately! There's a lot of hype around this one, and Initio combines elements in creative ways that might be challenging for some. In this case, you have deep, dark woody notes coming together with vanilla's airy sweetness. For me, it was an instant, total love. I couldn't stop smelling my test patch, and while I like many different fragrances, the instant-obsession is a relatively rare experience for me. I'd also add that IMO this is a right-down-the-middle unisex fragrance; anyone can rock it. That said, if you're looking for a super-sweet, girly vanilla this might not be your jam. (I'd still say give it a whirl, though, cause you never know ...)
