Men's perfume in perfection - a union of exoticism and forest lust
The JAGUAR (for men) jumps into the full deep green and as if in slow motion he touches exotic citrus, flowery gardenia and carnation, the spice bush of basil, lavender, thyme and almost on the ground fern, fir and cedar and rests at the end of the hot day on a blanket of tobacco, musk, leather and patchouli.
A union of exoticism and forest lust.
Sprayed before going to bed, you wake up in the morning like Aladdin in a moss bed.
I don't know of any men's fragrance that is as complex and intoxicating as JAGUAR for Men.
It takes patience and love for the beauty of the highest perfume composition, if you go on this fragrance journey.
With this splendid example of an emerald deep green men's fragrance, extremist Thierry Wasser has left his perfection in green.
I have also tested the original 1988, but gee, it is really something for grandpa... (maybe too much oakmoss)!
This new green JAGUAR is one of the few successful reformulations of an 80's cracker.
Today we men are allowed to experience the lovely and purring side of the green JAGUAR and this requires intense devotion (as is the case with Felidae).
The flacon is also like a cut emerald in its reductive production. Held against the light once, most beautiful green ever!
With this JAGUAR, which I'd dug out of a box of old perfume remnants, everything started again at the beginning of 2018 (my love for perfumes and my debut at parfumo.de). I wanted to sell it again and gave it another chance overnight and, ... my sleep was worn like a Persil-Lavender-Jasmine commercial. Wow! Can I get addicted to
Tested all the flankers in known drugstores. Nah, don't bother, there's nothing good about it, the usual cucumber water stuff with JAGUAR on it.
What remains is this totally underrated JAGUAR in green, with class, highest sillage and depth to Tolkien's greenest valley. An emerald in my 80s collection.
Good hunting!

Top note? Smells like shit in a fir glade! :-(
Actually I like the Jaguar fragrances, especially the two pace. OK, it was a blind buy for 10€, so not the end of the world. But it's my own fault if I rely so blindly on the (positive) comments.

I find the top note not only soapy, but really disgustingly green! Smells like shit in a fir glade!
H/S is also still long lasting, which I would gladly do without in this head and heart note. After about 5 hours the base note comes through, which then also develops quite pleasantly. Tobacco, leather and some fir and a few other green notes. The ending is actually how I imagined the whole scent. Too bad it takes so long, otherwise my evaluation would have been better. Nu,At least the bottle is nice green :-D
Too bad, I was really hoping for something better :-/

Best of the 80s
What the 80s have not all the - I really can't put it any other way - horny scents produced.
Antaeus, Trussardi uomo, Aigner Silver and yes, also this Jaguar At that time there was only one, in this deep green, elegant bottle. Today in perfumery, Jaguar for men, with its still beautifully deep green bottle, disappears among various other jaguars in black, silver, gold and even red vessels. It's a pity actually, but great on the other hand that he still exists.

No, it was hard to describe the wear and tear on the shower gel of the same name at that time, I embalmed my (former) astral body with the stuff excessively everywhere and always until the shower rooms at home or in the bathrooms of this world still the next day after Jaguar Stingray, and then in the evening before going to the disco (of course in an outfit similar to Miami Vice) I got sprayed with the scent.

I thought it had a very nice smell. And I still think so today. Why?

At that time one like no other, a fragrance that was not made better by anybody else, who managed this mixture of green-woody fresh just perfectly.
Nowadays there are a lot of imitators and/or brothers in spirit, the competition is much bigger and so it has not become easier for the big cat of the last century to attract potential buyers.

In my opinion, the fragrance has lost none of its quality and attractiveness. Press the sprayer, gladly 3-5 times and enjoy. The start combines citrus fruits with bergamot and lavender and therefore does not come along as a pure citrus representative. After about half an hour, the citrus fruit component on my skin becomes distorted and is replaced by woody notes. I find this very pleasing, especially in combination with the already mentioned bergamot-lavender composition. And in the course of time, this green colour, which does justice to the bottle, is added to it. Farn quotes the pyramid of scents and yes, that's it. Fern after a rain shower. Fresh green.
After three hours, wood and fern get stuck. This may not sound very sexy, but it gives the whole arrangement a very masculine touch and at least for me as the wearer, it gives me a feeling of well-being and self-confidence, knowing that I have definitely done nothing wrong with this fragrance.

The scent itself, as mentioned at the beginning, I still find great. Masculine, striking, not as arbitrary as much of what is on the shelves today, not so easily interchangeable.
Durability and Sillage. Well, that's the weakness of Jaguar for men, you have to use a lot of the water to lay a (smelling) trail. Five or six sprayers at least. Even with eight spray bursts, the job is over after six to seven hours. It's a pity, because the fragrance not only deserves more, but with a little chemical know-how it's basically no problem to get it right these days.
I also still find the bottle beautiful. A bit of British Racing Green, matching the green tones, otherwise elegant, like the cars of the same name, simple but noble.

One of the few that still have their justification in 2020. And perhaps he will reignite my former great love and equally great wasteful application.

Fine soap yes - a soap bubble no
As a result of my good scent experiences with the perfume Polo by Ralph Lauren, I wanted to try some more scents in a similar garment. I found an interesting candidate in another price category with comparable fragrances, just as green-spicy characterized, also in a beautiful green bottle, well known and commented on Parfumo. My first choice was Jaguar for Men.

The first spray was frustrating in odour! Not the perfume, my expectation was very disappointed - no forest, no meadow, no moss, nothing herbaceous or woody and smoke wasn't either.

The aroma is spicy from the beginning and with intense freshness of sour fruits, very citric, very lemony, very bitter, almost biting. This vehemence of the foreground stands for me on a very creamy and soapy subsoil with a discreet flower aroma, further spicy scents and first green impressions ("green soap perhaps" ?). The force of the firm beginning slackens quickly and the creamy soap now envelops clear, green-spicy tones. The smell of strong aromatic herbs is now sensually and comfortably complemented by a fine, woody-moosy bouquet and in addition woods, resinous fir wood as well as fragrantly warm tropical wood come up. A long lasting aroma for the next few hours.

After the disappearance of the fine, soapy basic tone, woody warmth dominates. Discreetly smoky, the fragrance gains a lot of masculinity! Aromatic masculinity blends here with mild leather and tobacco notes. It is, so after approx. eight hours, a very pleasant, warm and balsamic, also strikingly animalic end of an appealing perfume.

The result is an impetuous beginning with intense, bitter freshness. In addition an omnipresent, for me very pleasant, soap with strong spicy facets and later green-herbaceous-forest aromatics. Towards the end warm-woody-masculine comfort.

Exquisite green premium essence from the deepest forests
This fragrance smells tremendously high in relation to its price. Intense and long-lasting. A unique and classic. It no longer fits into the fashionable world of today's fragrances and would not be advertised by any Youtube influencer. He looks male and dominat but also very aggressive in the first hour. I like it in a certain way, but I would only wear it if I didn't want to maintain social contacts.

This fragrance is perfect for hunters who sit on the high stand in the morning with a bottle of Jägermeister in the foggy damp forest and wait for wild game. Jaguar for Men smells unbelievably soapy green. For woods, for bitter mosses and lichens. A fragrance for nature lovers. You associate it with something old-fashioned. No wonder because it is a typical 80s fragrance. Caretaker Krause would wear this scent if he dressed up in uniform and went to the board meeting of the Dachshund Breeding Club. Also suitable for binge drinking of arch-conservative beating student fraternities when you go to a pub with old men, but not when there are women around or when you want to pick up a woman in the same evening. This fragrance is also a great match for the military. Whether simple soldier in camouflage suit or officer in fine thread at men's events in the officers' home. However, in covert military operations (as performed by Rambo) you should not wear the scent. It's too strong, too intense, and the Sillage stretches for miles. The enemy would track you down and shoot you in the ambush.

I also associate this scent with British landed gentry. During a hike in the Scottish Highlands I could also imagine him on me (attractive single women are usually not there anyway). An older British granny would certainly like the scent at Tea Time very much for me. It also goes well with an old dark green vintage Jaguar. Optimal to spray on the leather seats. In the Alps I wouldn't wear the scent while hiking or on a via ferrata. There are just too many attractive women out there. I don't want to scare them away.

I would never wear that scent on a Tinder Date. The woman would in all probability reject me already during the greeting and embrace and cough loudly. Maybe she'd even run away. This is not a Womanizer scent. If you are looking for a very individual natural high class premium fragrance that is anything but mainstream, you should try Terre d'Hermes. Elegant, long-lasting and gently coming, citric, earthy, woody. Jaguar for Men, on the other hand, is a club. If a Tinder Date gets out of hand because it's not going forward but time passes, the woman is inappropriate or the cost keeps rising, Jaguar for Men can stop the date with an emergency stop. It acts as an emergency exit. It's best to carry a mini atomizer with you, go to the toilet for a short while and fully diesel up. Then you're guaranteed to get rid of the woman.

bittergreen or greenest bitterness,
that he's being so damned up at the drugstore is a little unjustified for me.
As Guerlain Foxhound he would go over the counter for 65 EUR.
The new edition is better than the original by the way - the oak moss looked a little bit like grandpa haft.
It starts extremely bitter, almost poisonous (lilac ?), totally green and completely unsweet and only a little bit citric.
That's a bit strict at first but doesn't bother me personally in the morning/afternoon/evening.
As basis, after approx. 1 ½ h remains an incomparable, somewhat tobacco like, slightly purple seeming lilac or violet impact, which on the skin, especially when it gets colder, looks like a deep, bitter fresh fountain to me. Sandalwood soothes the "poisonous" character, which I like though. At the very end the Tonka bean comes through clearly warming. The whole thing lasts the whole day/evening and is clearly perceptible far later. This combination of poisonous and warm it is, I think, that gives it a completely independent touch.
I think the Jaguar is hot, sharpest when it's cold - the oils could be a bit better.
