Reviews of Aura for Men

I bought then resold the bottle of Aura I had over ten years ago. It's not cloying per se, just a bit too complicated and unsettled on my skin. Reminiscent of Jako by Lagerfeld and Gucci Envy (a favorite of mine), though with a more exotic flair to it. The bottle is amazing to look at, which is perhaps what compelled me to blind-buy it. Overall, if you're into scents that are very different from the crowd and daring, this is one to try for sure.

I like Aura for Men precisely because it does its job in a concise and affable manner and without stumbling. Yes, it is very much Jacomo's bid in the late 90's cedar and nutmeg theme of such scents as Kenzo Jungle and CK Contradiction, and I do agree with the aforementioned remote likeness to Gucci's Envy, but this creation isn't jockeying for position among them; it's a little brother off doing his own thing who just inherited some similar genes. While the above releases, as well as the ridiculously beautiful Carven Homme, follow a certain progression and delicately unravel it seems like Jacomo's version just hums a steadily undulating chord for most of its lifespan. The Green and lemon is always there, as is the cedar and nutmeg, down to the last sniffable particle. The name is certainly fitting, then. In that it does not change but rather diminishes in its progression it might be more fair to compare it to a couple other 'little brother orientals,' - S.T. Dupont Signature and Escada's Casual Friday. And much respect to the creator for shaping a designer frag whose lemon lasts as long as that of Loewe's Esencia. That's quite a feat.

Aura isn't going to floor many people with its innovation or beauty but it is a smile factory of a scent with a seriously low price tag. I feel this one would be a great way to introduce younger enthusiasts to green fougeres.

Terrible, TERRIBLE fragrance! smells of children's sunscreen, fake watermelon and lemon oil. There's some old lady face powder in there too. Horrid. A cacophany of foulness all around.

I bought Jacomo, 7 o 8 years ago, because of the modern contemporary looking bottle and because I was looking for a fresh, citrus fragrance. Since I usually try to avoid the big names, I found Aura and I decided to try it.
Well, to me the fragrance smells generic nothing wow. Citrus and green notes open the fragrance, then a little bit of floral and then the warm masculine cinnamon, tobacco, sandalwood and musk. It's a nice fragrance, with the basic trinity of citrus/spices/wood, but...
the main reason for my "thumbs up" is because I get many, many compliments everytime I wear this perfume. I know it's a little shallow and selfish, but isn't that the whole point of wearing a fragrance?

Great scent!!! Has the same vibe from Gucci Envy for Men, but less powdery, just the way I like, and the drydown reminds me a bit from YSL M7.
One of my favorites !
Thumbs up for Jacomo

It is a tea based cologne and as with most jacomo colognes, it is different than many main stream ones. I recommend it.
