    Genre: Floral Oriental

    Jaipur Saphir starts off with notes of white flowers and citrus rind, with a light dose of aldehydes thrown in to soften up the flowers. The citrus quickly morphs into a light fruit note that joins the blend of florals, sweet spices, vanilla, and lingering aldehydes that comprise Jaipur Saphir’s relatively light, deft, floral-oriental heart. This heart accord is enlivened by a fresh green note that persists well into the development. Precious woods, vanilla, and powdery musk dominate the drydown, while the green note keeps the composition less weighty than many other oriental fragrances.

    Jaipur Saphir is tropical and exotic, but in a bright, soft way. It smells like a misty morning in some far-off eastern land. There’s plenty of light, but suggestive details remain half-hidden in the background. This is a remarkably versatile oriental scent that works well day or night in any season. Hats off (again,) to Boucheron!

    Radiant, white, powdery, projecting, exotic and a bit balsamic Jaipur Saphir is a marvellous couterpart of the original earlier Jaipur. Since the beginning the first blast of citrus, white dust, flowers (magnolia, jasmine, may be rose) and balsamic anise reminds me slightly a sort of blend of Eliotrope Etro, Flower Bomb, Roma, the warmer Casmir Chopard (because of the neroli-peach and balsams) and Very Irresistible (because of the aromatic-mentholated feel) but this is more radiant and transparent of the others. Probably that sort of minty barely perceivable feel (at least under my nose) is produced by a chord of citrus, in particular the green-aromatic yuzu, and prickly cardamom even if hidden somewhere is not placed a touch if anise or mint.  White flowers, cinnamon, balsams, sandalwood, musk, fruits (orange, peach) may be aldehydes compose this flower-oriental that reinterpretates in a more modern  and chic contemporary formula the great original Jaipur. Bright, versatile but highly luxurious, Boucheron Saphir is a winner among the contemporary fragrances.

    Yet another evasive creation from the house of Boucheron, JAIPUR SAPHIR is what I'd call a "via negativa" perfume, by which I mean best described in terms of what it's not:

    Not flowery, not sweet, not sharp; not spicy, not aquatic, not dark; neither cologney nor aromatic; not loud, not fruity, not nutty, not woody; not resinous, not musky; neither dirty nor dusty. No relation whatsoever to its namesake and predecessor, JAIPUR.

    The only non-negational thing that I can think of to say about JAIPUR SAPHIR edt is that this smells to me like a very subtle unisex niche composition with carefully measured components woven together to form a sort of atmospheric scent which defies deconstruction. I find it impossible to tease out individual distinct notes. It might be very lightly tinged green... then again, maybe not.

    Definitely perfume-police approved.

    At first sniff I almost cringed at this scent! It was very tart, citrusy, and strong. Must have been the Yuzu. I didn't give up yet...

    After a few seconds I began to detect the white peach. Half an hour later the jasmine and magnolia had warmed up enough to make me very, very happy that I'd purchased a full bottle!

    Dry-down is unique in that it is warm and woody with slight traces of vanilla, but if you get close enough you can still detect a faint tart green note. This is a very beautiful winter fragrance, as it's heavy and warming. Thus far, it has lasted over seven hours...pretty good for an EDT.

    Softness and subtlety are the bywords for Jaïpur Saphir. It has less presence than Jaïpur, but it is not really a washed out version of its progenitor. The fruit and cardamom accord is the first to show up. Then the florals blossom with a beautiful transparency. After that comes the base of amber and vanilla and sandalwood. All the accords are exquisite, and the sillage stays delicate and refined but they retain a genuine presence. Jaïpur Saphir can serve as a model of refinement and proportion. There is nothing in the fragrance that gets anywhere near dissonance, unbalance, or headiness; it is perfect.

    Hello hello.......

    Jaipur Saphir is the first fragrance in which I finally experienced a real "accord." What I mean is, I "heard" the melody produced by the strumming of the guitar, and it made sense to me. I saw how each note played with the others to produce that melody and I "saw" the mathematical/lyrical composition to it.

    JS is soft, fresh and at first I thought this will wear off in a minute or two. Then, at unexpected intervals throughout the day, "dddrrrrran......." the guitar strums.

    Ok, so what am I actually smelling here? Cardamom, milk, vanilla, peaches, roses, magnolias, cashews, cinnamon, a touch of coriander, or maybe cumin, seed.

    Has anyone here ever had Kashmiri tea( the pink one)? It's a little like JS. Yum.
