You can't get more oriental than that.
Oriental fragrances are basically one of my favorite. Forced to stumble sooner or later on this candidate, also because it is one of the most popular fragrances for men on parfumo. Since Amouage is known to hurt the wallet pretty much, I have me first of all a sample to get.

And what can I say?

Jubilation is really an Oriental as it stands in the book. The prelude is clearly dominated by the blackberry, which for whatever reason, is not often found in men's perfumes. Immediately a resinous-smoky base develops, which is (and remains) very gentle and unobtrusive. Frankincense, myrrh, opoponax and the honey are the most distinct notes for me. To recognize all the notes that are listed here, I'm probably a little too untrained.

Similar to the Interlude one immediately burn images of the Orient, the desert and Arab bazaars in my head. It smells really heavenly and relaxes immensely.

But now to the reason why I did not buy a bottle of it. First, I must emphasize that I am not one of the faction that evaluates and buys fragrances only by durability and sillage. But with Jubilation, I was totally dissatisfied. Especially with such a DNA. Other fragrances that go in this direction are actually really at the upper limit of durability. After 2 hours... nothing. Still very slightly noticeable on the skin. I don't get it. Too bad.

This Amouage is without a doubt a first-class fragrance of first-class quality, as long as you smell it then. Unfortunately, this aspect has denied me a purchase.

Very nice Oriental
For me, the Amouage Jubilation XXV smells very luxurious. It is oriental, dry, fruity, spicy and woody. To smell out the individual components I unfortunately do not succeed, but I find the mixture was harmoniously matched and it leaves me with an extremely valuable overall impression. If I had to assign a fragrance to Oman without ever having been there, I would probably give it this one. I love this oriental beauty that transports you to the stories of 1001 nights. The only drawbacks for me are the projection and durability, which I think could be a little stronger.

All in all, this fragrance is currently one of my absolute favorites in terms of oriental fragrances, together with Chimaera by Tiziana Terenzi which has a similar abundance of ingredients and I still like a little better

Acierto seguro
Uno de los mejores y míticos perfumes de Amouage.
Masculino, cálido y sensual. Para otoño e invierno.
La pena es su rendimiento , quizás un poco bajo.
Si el olor durase como los primeros 30 min sería magistral.

On the anniversary: Dechafour's handwriting
Once you are registered on Parfumo, you will inevitably hear about some perfumes. Anniversary is one of those. I got to know the fragrance - DNA through a Dupe by Rasasi, which seemed rather overloaded, so I lost my interest without ever having smelled it. I only became curious again when I took a closer look at Bertrand Duchafour, of whom I know several works and who I consider to be the greatest perfume I know. Duchafour certainly has two sides; firstly, the insignificance of many designs, which is certainly due to the unusually high-frequency output for a niche market, and secondly, the genius and significance of some of the few masterpieces. These few have one thing in common, they are highly emotional, difficult to grasp in their entirety, because they are loaded with expressive and strong aromas, at the same time never slain, never intrusive.
Jubilation XXV fits exactly in this direction. Though clearly oriental in nature, but well dosed in the Duchafour manner, it manages to create an unmistakable fragrance DNA adapted to the European market. This is what the house of Amouage stands for, in a way, in connection with superior quality. A perfect choice of perfumer to create the 25th anniversary fragrance.
I will describe the fragrance itself only briefly, others before me have done so extensively Duchafour and better. As in other perfumes by Duchafour, a natural, unsweet fruit is placed in the center of attention and ensnares by tart, strong players without being covered or put in the shade.
What Timbuktu's mango and the Dzongkha's lychee is, the blackberry is to Jubi. This is lost in perfect symbiosis with gently purring puma cage animalism, as well as mild incense, not of the sacred variety, rather cultivated, freed from any scratchy disturbing symptoms. This is also known from the two perfumes mentioned above. The blackberry is in the top note, there still supported by the orange clearly more fruity, most present, but remains the course of the noticeable. Despite resins and a certain bite, Jubilation never looks grubby, dirty or sweaty. A flowery cleanliness is always maintained, which in no way contradicts the main components. This is what I count especially to the heart notes given.
In the base, leather, resin and oud are surprisingly mild, plus a musk component that smells so soft that even I, as a musk hater, like it.
So what's that smell like? Animalistic but well-groomed. Manly but not impulsive.
Woody, dark but not heavy.
The Sillage is quite reserved, only a hint of the fragrance remains, an idea of the individual notes, a teaser that makes you want more.
For an oriental fragrance, he radiates quite little, you may like it or not, but it only speaks for Duchafour's handwriting, his perfumes hardly ever come to the fore in a boorish way.

I would recommend it for autumn and winter, at any time of day or night, but not necessarily for going out. I wouldn't classify him in the seductive direction.

You can certainly call Jubilation XXV a career highlight. For a house like Amouage to choose you to create a fragrance for its 25th anniversary, and to have it become so popular - that's a knighthood beyond compare. In my opinion, it wasn't his greatest, but it was the most prestigious If you like this perfume, I strongly recommend to try other fragrances by Bertrand Dechafour

Dark pine forest forgotten in Heaven, in my dream sample only
Oh my God,!! What a blessing to add this amazing woody, fresh,resin, dark perfume to my collection...
I thought that I couldn’t find something similar, until now..
It brings me back to this flight from Holland to Greece, when i return from my loving wife ...
And i show this woman trying to sell me some fragrances.. She spray to my hand my signature perfume until yesterday.. i was falling in love from the highest skies.
I buy it at once..
Looking outside the sad clouds and the sun falling to a pink orange color.. sniffing and dreaming this woody fresh from Hermes
Before i left airport in Athens i buy from store there another 200 ml...
That was many years ago...
I was wondering if there is another masterpiece with the same mood, similar dreamy aura..
Jubilation 25 hug my senses from first touch.. Amouage quality, perfect silage for a man and above average longevity
After the first sharp, spicy, orange kiss a mystery heart from ancient woods drives me in a deep, dark pine forest..
Hoping to get lost inside to this glowing fog from the green mountains..
I lay down at the middle of the rain,
Some cinnamon leaves flying over the soil..
The drops are sweet
Highest trees moved slowly as the warm wind fight hard and spit resin from their soul...
The road is wide, endless and dark
Long and linear..
That aroma fly around me like it always looking also for me , as i always searching for it... not loud, but perfectly, manly
And then , suddenly i wake up, very hard...
It was a dream only....
The sample was the ticket to heaven, but when i purchase the full bottle 100ml it was a different perfume, a nightmare....
an annoying, not clear, without resins, missing the main oils, the good scents. A bad perfume, dirty, animalistic, weak, without longevity and silage...
A cheap perfume that looking and laughing at me..
The weird is that i order the bottle from the same high rated e-shop that i get the sample..
This is the cruel reality
Worst than a nightmare
I send it back...i explain, they said that will replace it with another from different batch..
I decide to contact with amouage, to find out what is wrong..
Amouage didn’t respond to my email about batches and about made in UK or made in Oman senarios..
The perfume’s designer also didn’t respond to my msgs on FB or insta...
So, sample was a bait..to steal the 200 euro

One night i wake up and i search in the dark to my drawer and find this 2ml sample.....
It was empty...
I knew that even if i try to spray I couldn’t take a full spray, but i try....
Some mini drops came out of the sample, like the last breath of life.. but it was enough to bright the room of this original , magnificent perfume...
shiny, warm and spicy..woody with divine resins...
I sleep with this smell...
I could have some sniffs many hours later, even after the shower...
and now what?

I wish I discover a time machine, to go back in time at 2008.. try to get back all the underestimated authentication
I will find a store and say..
- Good morning, i like to have all the amouage jubilation xxv you have right now to your store..plus all you can order for me..
- how many you like sir?
- all you can get..
- forgive me sir, may i ask you what you gone make with all these?
-At the future original things and original people will be very rare.. all they will wear masks and they will try to wear masks to the perfumes also..
At the future this magnificent perfume will be so fake as the people around it and they will betrayed their own creation
But none will care for honesty and originality
Everyone will care only for money and how they can mislead other people for effort ...
Can you give me all?
- No sir, im sorry... you are not in the past...u never travel to 2008
But to another bad dream.... wake up..!,!

Resin - honey - blackberry
At least for my nose, these are the three most dominant notes in this perfume, after a day of testing. In combination, the whole thing looks quite noble; of all the perfumes I've been able to test so far, this is the most expensive one. It's almost a golden scent - not metallic-golden; more like honey-gold, bedded on tree resin. One could also say: royal-opulent, but never obtrusive. The fir cone-like resinousness, the honey sweetness and the blackberry are always present and together give a balanced picture. Fits perfectly with a golden watch/chain and dark, noble clothes. I also wear it with all other outfits, on summer evenings, autumn days or winter. The scent is somewhere between sexy and gourmand. Smells very unique in any case. No comment on the price

Great smell, but..
So now it's time for my first comment here on Parfumo and my first rating for a fragrance ever...

Jubilation XXV Man - A wonderful fragrance that captivated me from the first moment. In the beginning it is mainly the combination of blackberry and honey surrounded by incense that is clearly perceptible and that makes me sniff my skin again and again with deep breaths. I have never known any other perfume before, but I am only just entering the world of niche fragrances.

Over time, the fascinating complexity becomes more and more apparent. Spicy, woody, warm, slightly sweet... Where other perfumes quickly become boring for me, this is definitely not the case here. I've often read that Jubilation XXV is especially recommended for fall/winter. I also like to wear it in summer, but only in the evening, when the temperatures have subsided a bit. But I can imagine that it will be even better during the colder season and I am already excited about it!
Now, the big but... Durability and projection really leave a lot to be desired. On my skin it only lasts for 2 - 3 hours intensively for my own nose, before it gets weaker and after 4 - 5 hours it is hardly noticeable for me. I also have to apply it on my arms and sniff very close to my skin to notice it. Unfortunately I do not notice too much of the scent on my neck. Strangely enough it is completely different with my girlfriend... She can perceive it much longer and more intensive on me than I can.

In the end, however, after the test with a bottling, I had to buy a full 100 ml bottle very quickly. Despite the problems with durability and projection, I simply like the fragrance itself too much!

It#s a boring life out there but someone#s gotta live it...
An early darkened autumn evening, light drizzle dances in front of the street lamps. The sidewalks are still full of people when K. comes out of the office and joins the crowd. He clings to his bag a little as the stream of bodies sweeps him through the pedestrian zone, and although he would like nothing more than to have his feet now hanging felt-slippered over the right-hand couch backrest, the cosy yellow light of a fragrance boutique, trimmed to the old-fashioned style, seduces him to stop and take a break. The main thing is to get out of the rain...

It's warm inside. It smells as if a couple of perfume bottles have exploded - or maybe it's the loudly discussing club of the executive secretaries, who single-mindedly clear the Jo Malone shelf and generously distribute the contents over the iris-fogged office aura they have brought in on their décolleté. K. turns around and unexpectedly stands in front of the shelf, which, like a lamp spirit, promises the fulfilment of all his wishes. A glittering mélange of gold, white and various primary colours, centred around a coat of arms of the sun, which celebrates the glory of abundance in its splendour. K. unerringly reaches into the compartment in front of him, pulls out the bottle that seems most beautiful to him and holds it up to the light. Of course, only he hears the choir of angels, which is at this moment blaring a hallelujah at the top of its voice, but his rapturous look now even catches the eye of the approaching saleswoman, who stops in horror at this moment and pretends to be on the trail of a dirt stain in the Chanel corner. K. feels the magnetic lid, just a small movement ... the gate to heaven is open, he pushes the spray head down, spreads his arms and runs into the cloud.

Twenty minutes later, K. gets off the tram, crosses the pedestrian lights and disappears across the street into the entrance of the building. A lonely blackberry blows down the street when the door falls into the lock. Two minutes later the light goes on on the second floor, K.'s silhouette can be seen at the window, just a brief moment. Then silence reigns, interrupted only once more by the sound of the toilet flushing,

Outside, a few other blackberries remain indecisive, while a hint of incense wafts hesitantly around them, drawing the attention of some cinnamon sticks. A rose, which has managed to jump off just in time before the oud, joins the illustrious group. They all know that it will be a short evening for them and the question about the sense of their existence is therefore unnecessary. Born under a bad star and then simply all together in the wrong batch, the only thing left for them now is to wring a last smile from the night and then, as a faint hint of former glory, to be carried away by the wind before dusk. Only the honey has drawn the lucky card: Ashamedly he snuggles up a little under the warming feather blanket on K., because at the latest when the Biedermeier clock in the living room strikes six, the landlord will open the window and drive away even the last memory of Amouage's "Jubilation XXV"
It's a boring life out there, but someone's gotta live it...

Awesome!
This juice really hits the nail.
Opening out with very natural crispy sweet fruity blackberry/raspberry notes with honey and after approximately two hours begins the drydown into incense-y sandalwood or oudish tobacco territory with hints of myrrh.

Very complex stuff that just oozes quality and confidence.

This is extremely well balanced and the longevity of the drydown is just crazy, I get 8 to 10 hours easily without the sillage fading at all.

If it weren't so darn expensive, I'd get a barrel full of it and use it for showering - well, just dreaming I guess...

Despite its short-lived fruity opening, this rather linear spicy-earthy oriental fragrance is nicely balanced by a warm resinous-woody base.
