Autumn scent with a cozy chill vibe
I smelled this several times over the years off a test strip and was less than impressed. I couldn't figure out why there was so much hype from all the You tube reviewers out there. On my third testing at a Sephora I sprayed it on the back of my hand and wrist and without smelling it directly continued to shop. While waiting in line at the register 30 minutes later I caught a whiff of it and was shocked to realize that the scent was giving off an addictive mild dry boozy smell. It's a wonderful warm cozy rum and vetiver scent with a mild dose of smooth tobacco and a touch of suede and vanilla. This truly smells like Autumn in a bottle to me. I instantly had to get it. Definitely not a big projector but has decent longevity and is extremely pleasant to the nose in the dry down. It's a unique scent that you can wear September to May, night or day. I'm very glad to have it in my collection.

Take Me Back to the Speakeasy...
On days like today, where the weather is hardly my best friend, where there’s a chill in the air, but the sun is shining brightly, where I’ve dressed for summer, but am attacked by the frosty nips of a passing winter, where I feel down and out, too tired to move but too anxious to sit still, this little gem is my friend. For those of you not interested in the rambling of an amateur nose, here’s the TLDR: Dark rooms, warm, inviting, boozy cocktails, with a cubano lit a table or two away, the smell of tobacco wafting towards you. A must have for anyone that loves perfumery as an artform and scents that are safe, but nuanced. Definitely a compliment puller from anyone that gets close to you. (But trust your nose, not my words)

To everyone that’s with me till now, a small disclaimer. I am fairly new to the world of fragrances and perfumery, and a lot of my experience before I was bitten by the bug was “that’s nice” and “that’s...fresh?” However, as with most things, the more I began to explore, the more I realized that the rabbit hole is far deeper than I could have begun to imagine, and quite frankly, I have no intention of climbing out any time soon.

Now then, onto my thoughts about this perfume, what all I get from it, and what it evokes in me.

The olfactory fireworks (and yes, they are fireworks) start from the moment this hits your skin, but they aren’t explosions. They go off at medium volume, and bring with them the most delectable aromas. A slight tartness, a vanillic warmth, a sweet rum like scent, and the slightest hint of an abstract coconut, flitting through. A tropical cocktail at an upscale bar, one even those who don’t dabble in the devil’s drink can appreciate. Here, in this opening spray, the fragrance is already a winner. But it doesn't stop there.

As the sweet warmth of the rum and vanilla settle into the heat of my skin, something else begins to emerge. A bitterness to balance it out, almost vegetal, but not quite. I don’t know what this bitterness is, but it certainly plays to the cocktail aspect in my mind (a Rum Old Fashioned perhaps?) This bitterness takes the cloying aspect out of the sweetness, and turns it into an almost burnt caramel; deep, ambery, bittersweet. And from amidst this bittersweet concoction, comes a smoky love affair, that I can only liken to a half burning cigar, sitting in a forgotten corner, blowing it’s aroma to me on the air of those that pass it, with hints of leather. Something like an old reading chair you haven’t seen for a decade or two, but then when you sit in it again, you’re reminded of that comfort you’d forgotten.

Now, as for longevity and sillage, I’ve had a mixed bag. It lasted on my skin once for 16 hours, even surviving a shower, but another time, it was gone in two, a fleeting memory of beauty, so I can’t say much other than your mileage may vary. But one thing is certain, no matter how long it lasts on you, the journey that it takes you on is worth every second, long or short. It’s truly an art piece in a bottle, and has left me excited to try the other offerings this house has to offer.

Rum meet vanilla for the evening
This perfume should have been called "Love affair" and then the name would be right.
It is a shy, close to skin scent which even if you apply 10 sprays, it will still not project at all but oh man the smell on your skin or clothes will be to die for.

There is a nice bubbly start from the pepper with a bit of neroli, then the rum in the background with sweet vanilla takes over and stays for the length of the scent. I would have liked some tobacco and leather in it, to give it an edge .. but it´s not there.

My thoughts about it, can be seen in the video. Thank you for watching!

Coolness
One evening I arranged to meet my best friend in a jazz bar. Upon entering, one had a direct view of the long bar counter. The room itself was then twice as long and went once around the corner. The ceiling was quite high and the room was decorated with black tables and chairs. Then in the corner of this L-shaped room was a small stage where a jazz band was to perform at 10PM. Around this were smaller round tables spread out. We decided to sit at one of the black tables a bit away from the action, although nobody was there yet anyway. Soon the bartender came to our table, who seemed more like the landlord since he was running the place all by himself. Wearing a loose white shirt and grey jeans, this one looked rather unimpressive at first glance. But as soon as he stood in front of us to take the order, he had a strong impression on me. Relaxed and at the same time very determined, he asked us what we wanted to drink. He seemed somehow annoyed and at the same time nice. Very funny, but there was something cool about it. If I had met this bald man in his mid 40's on the street, I would have labeled him as an unsympathetic guy with a tendency to be choleric. But here in this bar, he fit in perfectly. You could tell he had everything under control and he had to because he was the only staff in the bar. I drank a rum with ice. After a while, I pulled out a scent strip from my back pocket with "Jazz Club" on it and showed it to my friend.

Jazz Club, for me, is one of those scents that I can't get out of my head and keeps coming back to me. It's a fragrance that really stands out as a scent and has quite a distinctive character to me. Maison Margiela's Replica range, which aims to recreate certain situations with fragrance and then name it after the situation, did a great job of recreating the situation of a jazz club with Jazz Club. I think you can pass the jazz bar I was in as a jazz club. Whenever I smell this scent, I have to think back to that situation with my best friend.
The evening was very emotional: talking to her and with the jazz music in the background. At the same time, the overall situation seemed rather distant to me at the time: The bar manager, which has appeared determined and distant, but has fit perfectly into the jazz bar and had a very own coolness about him, of which so many hipsters can only dream.
Then there were the alcoholic drinks, rum and gin and tonic, which were on the long black table, in the rather gloomy, cool and spacious room.
It was very atmospheric.

The scent gives me just those images: the sweet rum with a great boozy note, which seems very grown up with tobacco and then surrounds the vetiver/sage and finally is rounded and framed with the fresh notes from the top note.
Better I can not describe it and I also make no truth claims with my description, because the fragrance is as I said very coherently composed and thus beautiful for my nose!
It just like music (jazz music): you are taken by the music, you become part of the melody while listening and you are drawn into another world / with its own mood. That is the magic of music and that is also the magic of Jazz Club

Abstract coconut
Right now is the time to wear this fragrance and right now is also the time to write a review about it. Because Jazz Club is the ultimate feel-good fragrance for times when the changeable weather ensures that you are always dressed wrong.

When, in the exuberance of spring expectation, you have thrown on the nice, light jacket and, after much hesitation, even decided on a light scarf, although all the winter clothes should already go into the closet. When you enter the street dressed like this, the rain clouds rushing along in the wind quickly shield you from the sun. It begins to rain, at the much too thin jacket all zippers and buttons are closed, which one can find and the scarf is wrapped so often and so high around the neck that one remains almost the air away.

If one should not have run now yet too far from home, one turns around, in order to put on nevertheless still cap, gloves and the thick winter jacket. Or one has luck and finds a shop, into which one can disappear times fast and with the rummage stands then there a bottle of the brown, warmth promising Maison Margiela smell.
Spray it on and your nose tells you: come in, sit down, warm up, look around, calm down. The sun and warmth will be right back. Rejoice in the light clothes you've been missing now.

This is exactly how I discovered this fragrance a few years ago. And after several years of using the scent frequently, I have to say that was probably the perfect moment to meet it for the first time.

My strongest association when smelling it is - as already mentioned in some comments - clearly coconut and that also right at the beginning. In fact, I also recognize a short time the slight sour notes at the beginning, but only on the skin (not on the test strip) and also really only briefly. Therefore, I would actually not characterize the fragrance as citrusy in any way. To me, the scent is woody-sweet. He actually tends strongly in the gourmand direction, to cross the border to a real gourmand, however, he lacks any fruit component on the one hand and has it on the other hand too much wood and synthetic-aldehyde aspects.

How the coconut character comes about is still not entirely clear to me. I think, however, that it is ultimately the mixture of the woody and sweet character.

Interesting is: We have it here in this aspect to do with a particularly beautiful example of an abstract fragrance representation. Because if you smell coconut milk or coconut shavings once and then at the Jazz Club, you realize that it is just a pure abstraction. The smell of the real ingredients of coconut is actually very different, less smoky, less aldehydic. For those interested in coconut fragrances, I would like to recommend a sample of Jazz Club. Perhaps a way to discover the fragrance differently.

In fact, the perception span for the wearer with two hours rather short. However, he withdraws just as already described in the other reviews to the near environment. And in doing so, he becomes anything but unpleasant. I find Jazz Club to be one of those fragrances that retreats to a heavenly base that is still perceptible for a few days. When I first tested it, it was the scent strip that I carried around with me even after two days, sipping a quick "smelling sip" of the pleasant deep sweetness every now and then. In the base, I perceive great similarity to the fragrance "Megalium" by Carner (even if the "superstructure" of the two fragrances is very different! - Not a fragrance twin!). I suspect that Styrax is a big contributor here.

Dark and admonishing, it lies in the rehearsal room waiting to be opened, her bass case.
She knew she had to practice, exercise her fingers, not get rusty, develop calluses.
But what was the point anyway?
Playing with the others, sharing, the process of creating music together, she missed it, she missed it so much....
Reluctantly, she let the buckles of the suitcase snap open and opened the leather lid.
She inhaled the leather scent, interspersed with the smell of the cigars the band puffed after successful gigs.
How long had it been? It seemed like forever to her.
Resting her head against the neck of the double bass, she played the first low note with the bow in a long time.
And immediately it set in, that calm in the minor,
made her close her eyes and breathe more deeply.
Accompanied by more low tones, she dreamed herself into dark clubs with candlelight and music and cocktails and revelry.
It will be like that again, she could feel it
and still play half the night.

Perfectly informed you will be about this fragrance a floor below, in Scentbubbles commentary.
Which couldn't be more eloquent, so I won't even try.

Imitation leather, non-smoking protection and exotic drinks
Fortunately, in the package that "By the Fireplace" came with, there was also a sample of this fragrance here: "Jazz Club". After "By the Fireplace" had already moved me to a comment due to its uniqueness, I would now like to make an attempt herewith to familiarize the inclined reader a bit with "Jazz Club". So let's get to it.

Basically, the concept of Maison Margiela's "Replica" line aims to transport the fragrance wearer and those around him to certain places or to make him think of certain activities based on fragrance. What these are in detail - as well as other details about the fragrance - can be seen on the label, which in my opinion is very stylish and made of fabric. This concept finds by the way analogously also with parts of the clothing articles application, which are brought by the house on the market.

Let's see whether the perfumer Aliénor Massenet has succeeded in meeting the self-imposed claim.

First of all, the journey should take us back to the year 2013, and specifically to the Jazz Club Brooklyn. This is to succeed in the fragrance especially by the fact that it brings up associations with intoxicating cocktails and cigars.

"Jazz Club" opens its olfactory fireworks at medium volume with a vanilla sweetness, paired in equal parts with a very pleasant rum note. Patchouli and vetiver flit inconspicuously through the fragrance picture, which is altogether by a finely perceptible coconut touch reminiscent of an exotic drink, but without being really "boozy". So does "Jazz Club" reflect the smell - no, the scent - of intoxicating cocktails? Absolutely yes, because this is emphatically not about whiskey neat, but about - that's right - cocktails.

Let us now turn to the cigars. And exactly at this point there is a special feature: the perfumer was so prudent to take into account the in 2013 already, fortunately, firmly established non-smoker protection. The smoking visitor of the Jazz Club Brooklyn does not pursue his vice at the table, but rather goes to the door, where a few noble ashtrays and, in the colder seasons, a heater await him. When he returns to his table afterwards, he draws a light veil of scent, which can then be perceived very discreetly by the other guests. However: In the smokers' corner, the guests do not smoke a few roll-your-own cigarettes with tobacco from the corner discounter. Rather, the guests puff the finest cigars from the best growing areas.

Only for the sake of completeness it should be mentioned here that also the smell of the leather of the seating, which is usual for clubs, is found again. And indeed, the styrax resin finely woven into the fragrance picture actually provides a very discreet, decidedly balsamic leather note, which in particular, however, rather reminds of artificial than real leather. This, however, is expressly not to be understood as a negative connotation - quite the opposite.

The fragrance goes linearly into the drydown, where it then becomes much quieter. Here, however, it should be noted that he is in individual cases for the wearer after one to two hours barely perceptible and rather seems close to the skin, but for people in the immediate vicinity loosely-fluffy still six to seven hours can be well noticed, until he finally actually becomes close to the skin.

Of course, I would also like to take up the sporadically brought to the speech similarity to other known fragrances. Quite clearly are from my point of view similarities with Dolce & Gabbana's "The One". To make "Jazz Club" come across exactly like "The One", you would basically have to subtract rum and vanilla and add a few spices; however, the similarity is already quite noticeable without interfering with the scent. Parfums de Marly's "Herod" is much further away. Here would then be to remove only the rum note; however, the fragrances are per sé comparatively much further apart.

Ultimately, "Jazz Club" is a tendency gourmandiger fragrance, which can be worn except for the very hot days quite the whole year; gladly during the day, but especially in the evening hours, but never occasion-bound. The label says that it is a masculine fragrance. Personally, I can imagine that this classification was the result of an internal company vote in which "male" won out over "unisex" by one vote. To my mind, "Jazz Club" is equally wearable by both genders.

I for my part have in the meantime ordered one of the fancy apothecary bottles and am sure that I will wear the fragrance often and with pleasure. Test it should be in any case!

Thank you for reading!

What a great mixture of lightness and heaviness. Zero gravity? Is that any way to describe a fragrance?
Interestingly, he reminds me of my childhood. I can't really say why exactly. Of course, that makes him particularly emotional to me.
It smells mature and mature, with a good dash of humor and a desire to dance. I can well imagine him in a bar where the mood is good.
Definitely unique, although not pompous, but pleasing and arousing interest.

Jazz Club meets Stoßlüften
At Jazz Club I was initially enthusiastic. A fragrance that stands out and conveys exactly what it was named after. An old club, Cuban rum lies pleasantly in the air, a leather-booted caballero smoking a cigar. The evening was long and it is around 4 o'clock in the morning. The pool table is still in use, the remaining regulars are happily slurring their words into the alcohol-soaked air. Everyone is in a good mood, there are no problems. There is only the here and now.

A super clear picture of what this fragrance conveys. An absolute character scent. Extraordinary, but extremely pleasant. Exactly my cup of tea.

Unfortunately the owner of the house decided about 2 hours later to air the house. Because around 6 o'clock in the morning there is no more of this scent there.

------------

I got a bottling of this fragrance from my brother along with some other of his favorite scents.
I sprayed all these samples on different notepads to be able to compare their scent and its course. 2 hours later Jazz Club was unfortunately no longer noticeable, while other scents, like Baraonda, had just reached their zenith. What a pity, the scent is so brilliant, H/S unfortunately very needy.

Jazz Club reminds me of Malibu rum, a coconut liqueur, boozy and creamy. The combination with smoke and tobacco makes the scent unpleasant.
