Jaguar ran out of fuel
I have to admit that I am a fan of Jaguar fragrances because they have very good quality for the money you pay.Unfortunately I could not claim the same for Jaguar Innovation.The scent is not really bad without being something extraordinary.It is a gentle fresh, citrusy ,aquatic and less sweet and woody blend.Simple and summery for every day use.I can not recognize any leather at all (except this in my arm) and the most ingredients are very weak excluding the citrus and less the patchouli and cedarwood notes.
Longevity and sillage are a disaster(less than one hour in my skin) weaker than a body splash.It could be better...

Fougere or not?
With the very first spray I was immediately wandering: is this really a fougere?The sure is that this is not an ordinery fougere.As you possibly know fougere fragrances are made by combining lavender, oakmoss, and coumarin ( the very first formula created by Paul Parquet in 1882) and not at all the actual smell of a fern.In our days most fougere fragrances include some other notes like citrus, herbaceous, green, floral, and animalic notes.
In this blend I can not recognize the most of these notes,So what do I recognize?There are citrus notes (but I can not capture the bergamot),a bouquet of floral notes,some musk vibes (but not in the same way as JPG LM) and minimal rose pepper.The whole thing is very fresh,floral and sweet and less or not at all spicy and woody.In my nose is a little bit synthetic and it reminds me shower gel fragrances also,but this is not bad at all.My wife noticed that there is also a feminine vibe and she would like to wear it sometimes.
The opening is strong enough,the lovgevity satisfying (about 5 hours in my skin) and the sillage average.It is an every day,versatile fragrance for the warm weather.
Do I like it?Definitely, YES.
It is my Mediterranean fougere.

Sweet poison
This fragrance is possible to divide audience.It is an idiosyncratic,unique,warm blend which balances betweensweet and bitter.The oppening is strong with a sweet,herbal and less spicy essence with a delicate bitterness and it's dificult to ignore the cyprees and sage vibes.There are also cinnamon but not in the same way as CK Obsession.I recognize also a slightly touch of pennyroyal and myrtle(the memories of this smell is always in my mind as I remember my grandma, when I was child in Samos island ,to boil water in the fireplace mixed with sage,myrtle and other herbs which she was collecting from the forest for our bath with green oil soap in the metall washbowl.Yes, she had no a proper bathtube...)Sorry me for being a little nostalgic.
At the drydown there are also woody(cedar) and less powder vibes finishing with a very,very small drop of ''poison'' ( is the tolu balm ? ) inside the sweet and bitter wrapper.
The longevity is OK for me (7,5) ,in clothes stay more than a day ,in my scin about 6-7 hours and the sillage is a little bit more than moderate (7 plus). I suppose it's a little bit synthetic, but well done. For me it is suitable for the evening or night out and not for the hot weather.
Recommended, but first test it.

A new friend
For me this is my first unisex scent I use and the only one that confussed me so much.In my opinion is a loved or hated parfum.I will explain:
Whith my first spray I thought that 17 Oud Mosaic was more a female scent and remind me slightly CK
Obsession for woman,but after a couple of hours transformed into a clean,gentle,oud and a little soappy scent(do yoy remember the 80's CAMAY soap?). So I decided to tested with my friends.
The next day I took my bottle in my job and i pretented that i did not know if it was a male or female scent and I asked from them to test and tell me their opinion.After a few minutes I noticed a variation
of reactions.Most of the men said that this is a female scent and most of the woman said that this is a heavy male scent....I also noticed that the persons that used to buy clones or bulk scents disliked it and the others that used originals parfums appriciated it a lot (is this accidental ?).
After a few days I sprayed into my skin and clothes and I asked some of my friends to tell me their oppinion for my ''new'' fragrance.Can yoy imagine?Most of them that dislike it few days ago told me that ''this is a nice fragrance ,not like the ''other'' I brought them a few days ago(LOL)!!!
Anyway,after this little expierince I decided that there are not clear limits to characterize a fragrance
male or female, the omly guide is to enjoy them.In my opinion 17 OUD MOSAIC is a really nice and gourmant scent in a very logical price.I can clearly smell the rose ,the Oud, the Amber and the Musk,
less the galbanum and the plum , maybe some wood and finally some clean and soappy notes after the first 2 hours.The rose and the oud remains until the end.The longevity into my skin is about
7-8 hours,in the clothes more than a day.I recomended but test it first.
