Jazz (2011) - Yves Saint Laurent

Jazz (2011) Dinner and a Show in Midtown
A manly scent with just the right amount of spice, powder, and creamy notes, in fact a nearly perfect blend of all three. In my view it's suitable for all seasons, but it leans toward fall and winter. It strikes me as similar to "Égoïste...

90's fresh scents like this, Cool Water and Tommy had more of air of being grounded in the earth and masculine than the modern fresh which is all but androgynous and sometimes a little too sweet, like the best...

Pleasant 90's vibe bordering on spiritual. Woody notes are pronounced. Recommended for all seasons.

I really wanted to like Antaeus because of its legend, but I don't think the heavy castoreum works in 2021. Smells like nasty gym sweat.

I really wanted to like Sky Father based on the branding and style. It is definitely unique, but not for me. Try before you buy.

Discovered this through @JCopelandSFP and George Zaharoff's own YouTube channel. One of the rare cases where the hype is true. Excellent.

Leathery and masculine, as the name suggests. Recommended.
Smells exactly like a mens' locker room. More to make an artistic statement than to actually smell "good". Not for me.
Is it just me, or does it seem like this bottle could use an update? Dunhill should give it better packaging than dollar store splash.

My boy Nick J. went ham on the sandalwood - I finally found a replacement for now discontinued Hilfiger Man Sport. Agreed unoriginal.

Low-key racetrack burning rubber and hedione (synthetic jasmine). Strange combo perhaps, but works for me. Unisex but leaning male for sure.

I never get compliments. I wore this on a business trip and was complimented every day. Thank you YSL. #pantydropper

I often disagree with the consensus on certain fragrances. For example, Encre Noir Extreme, Eau Sauvage EDP, and Le 3rd by Caron are all currently rated 8+ but I don't like them at all. Fragrance love is very subjective, and there is nothing wrong with a mass appealing scent. It means you are making more people happy in your daily travels. I have learned to first seek specifically fellow enthusiasts who DON'T like the same scents, as we will then often LIKE the same ones.
