Flashback to the 80s
As a teenager in the 1980s, you probably didn't feel much different from the kids today. Inside everything was "Lui" and on good days "L'eau d'Issey" (emotional, the scents came later). The music on the radio was stupid and German, the fashion without words (Schnauzer and Vokuhila, so please!), food was dangerous because of Chernobyl, later ministers were still fighting with policemen and Berlin was an island. There were actually still standing blues parties in the homes of the parents of the classmates, that was exciting, because it was never clear whether one could arrange a dance with her. With all the hormonal chainsaw massacre, it was important to at least stay cool water on the outside, just like the well-trained tanned guy in the commercial at the time. If you also had the courage to ask the girl during the dance what she smelled like (she smelled incredibly good), then of course she also had the serenity to tell you that the soap was because she had bathed. What else do you want to answer?
"JF" is a flashback there. Maybe an image of the London teenager of the late '90s. When I sprayed that stuff on myself this morning, it all came back in pictures and feelings. Aah, it's nice to be able to look at this from a distance now. Right at the beginning, the green and citric notes blend into the blue, almost aquatic, with the typical English mix tour of soapy green citrus fruits with moss and woods soon becoming perceptible. This distinguishes "JF" from "Cool Water" in that it also has this Blenheim character without being very similar to it. The only development of this fragrance then also goes in the direction of the classic British colognes, the soapy freshness settles in the moss at the feet of the fresh woods. The whole thing lasts about five to seven hours, with the Sillage initially arm-long and later closer to the ground.
So if you're looking for flashbacks into the late 80s or just a more British version of the Davidoff classic, this is the place for you. Personally, I've smelled that enough times.

Citrus Parfum without Compromise
Within a short time "JP" is developing a brillant blend of Citrus with all facets. Therefore "JF" is for my opion the ideal of a citrus parfum. "JF" is a citrus miscelaneous of fruits and blossoms of every kind from lemon, grapefruit, yuzu, seringa, lime, tangerine etc. But out of this there are mixed in resins of citrus plants, trees and leaves like petitgrain and labdanum. This all is seasoned by some fresh and tangy herbs, enriched with a note of cypress and cedarwood coniferous, needles and resins. Not to forget the juniper with ist's special fruits. The special bitterness of oakmoss does not allow that "JP" is developing into an ordinary fresh cologne. Certain amber resins and musk are caressing "JP" down to a mellow flavour. I consider "JP" as a unisex-perfum. And I am intrigued by "JF".

Thanks For The Memories...
JF opens with a citrus tandem of orange and lemon (more orange than lemon), with just hints of aromatic green herbal mugwort to add some balance to the citrus. As the fragrance enters its heart, the citrus recedes to a small degree, while the mugwort remains now combining with just slightly sweet amber. As the fragrance enters the early dry-down the amber continues to build coupling with a subtle woody accord, but the fragrance retains its general aromatic herbal citric nature through the end. Projection is below average and longevity is average at 7-8 hours on skin.

JF (and the house of Floris in general) was my first foray into the niche area, and was a favorite of mine for many years thereafter garnering many, many wearings. I don't wear it often anymore as my collection and tastes have both expanded, but I still enjoy and appreciate its charms every time I wear it. JF is frequently compared to fragrances like Green Irish Tweed by Creed and while I understand the comparison JF is really a different scent with more of an herbal citrus focus over a woody amber base, and those already owning GIT should not hesitate to also give JF a try as it has charms and appeal of its own. After further review all these years later, JF will always have a home in my collection, earning a "very good" rating of 3.5 stars out of 5. Thanks for the memories...

Must Buy Fragrance!
In short : Do you love Aspen by Coty, Cool Water by Davidoff and Green Irish Tweed by Creed ? Then You must buy JF by Floris. Much better than them in my point of view. Enjoy it :)

Fresh as much as Sea air smell, flowery with a hint of citrus
