Reviews of Jungle L'Éléphant

Here, you are in for an adventure. Are you ready? Focus on the purple and the bright green colour on and within the package for a moment. It may give you an impression of what is about to follow, but you might already get that, albeit somehow distorted, by simply opening the box with the bottle left untouched. My oh my! Imagine an elephant chewing on a chewing gum, or better, a chewing gum chewing on an elephant. The chewing gum has no teeth, so no worries about the elephant. However, does it really not have teeth? I think that this might be up for debate. Also, why am I reminded of a certain ultraviolet fragrance, albeit this one here being less sparkly and way thicker? Is it not interesting how other questions, like why the cap was not made out of metal so that it could somehow be turned into a necklace, somehow fade in comparison? In the mean time, let me have a few of these spiced peanuts to gather my thoughts on whether I would agree on it being suitable, I mean practically and not categorically, for both women and men. Indeed, I will have a milky masala chai with that. Thank you!

Far too heavy on the clove for my liking. It's well put together and unique for sure. Has massive longevity and projection. There are a number of guys saying this is suitable for a man. I disagree. I would know instantly that this was a woman's fragrance. It's just too perfume-ish. Like those Women's fragrances from the 80's and early 90's that linger forever and tickle your nostrils while also choking you out!!

I just purchased this blindly after reading great views, and have been so excited to try it. I'm a person that can't detect perfume scents on me unless they're very strong. I haven't experimented a lot with perfume but have really gotten into it in the past 2-3mos, trying many things. I read that Jungle Elephant requires just a dab. That didn't work for me. So I put on a fair amount, being home. The first sniff had a real strong smell and since I don't know scents well it must have been the cardamon. But it left almost immediately. Then I smelled vanilla lightly and not sure what the other notes were. I did pick up the patchouli fairly quickly. But it all became real faint on me within 10mins and I can hardly smell it at all, with my nose right on my skin. I'm not sure what my issue is. I drink a lot of green tea. I wonder if that has anything to do with my problem with scents, including very strong ones. I'm going to try layering this with other things and see if I hit on something that is appealing. I'm also going to try it with some Vit E oil or vaseline on my skin since I heard that can help. I'm glad this works well for most people, although it's been amazing that a strong perfume like this has had so little affect for me.

Spicy and a bit animalic in the first half hour, I could see why this is called L'Elephant. But this changed drastically, becoming a rich, full bodied flowery scent, quite sweet and a bit powdery, clean and with a subtle fruitiness. After this change, it stays pretty much linear and the words that would suit it are sweet, creamy, floral, powdery, vanilic. This would be quite nice on a woman.

If three wrong spices
Don't make an amazing scent,
Try four, five or six.

"What is it?" they cried.
"I know not", I told the men,
"But it rules this place."

And thus Queen Fan'ti
Welcomed my admiration
In lieu of my love.

Passing through airport today I liberally applied Jungle (Elephant - well it's the only Jungle now that Tigre has been discontinued - I've never tried that one). The spicy (but so unlike other spicy perfumes!) opening and middle kept me cheerful through the ever more tedious security checks and waiting around to board. On the 7 hour flight, I very much enjoyed its spicy (clove, cumin, caraway) and aniseed envelope insulating me from the world. I may have oversprayed a bit, but the woman beside me was having her own little affair with Jameson so I don't think I bothered anyone!

It's still going strong 12 hours later waiting for a connection, the spice is still there over some amber-patchouli when snifffed up close.

I really should get a bottle of this, but I think my fondness for it is magnified by our sporadic encounters in airport duty free shops... It's a fantastic brief encounter but I don't know about everyday wear.
