Reviews of Black Jeans

Good barbershop fougere of the "nugere" type. Not much longevity. Rive Gauche or Sartorial do it better in my opinion.

I bought the lack jeans and blue jeans on the same day (summer of 2001)... unforunately there was no sample for either so I had to trust the brand of VERSACE.

A slightly green, subtly woody scent which is too ordinary for me personally and does nothing for me ...
Glad it was discontinued but upset that I did not keep its nice bottle (I have since started an empty bottle collection of men's perfumes ...)

Innoffensive, ordinary, unexciting
Moderate sillage, 2-3 hour longevity for me

Very nice, spicy and woodsy scent! It is rife with juniper and vetiver, dancing around with the flower notes in a graceful way without being feminine by any stretch. Dark, different, and probably not for everyone.

VBJ is a very interesting fragrance. The official notes listed really don’t add up IMHO. I detect anise at first blast and Birch tar on the drydown and not much else. There may be patchouli too. Geranium? Nutmeg? Ginger? Don’t think so. That said, the anise and birch tar combine wonderfully to remind me of the mighty YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme. Not a copy per se but more of a flanker.

7.5/10

Genre: Fougère

The opening blast of rubbing alcohol does not bode well for my enjoyment of Black Jeans, but it is mercifully very brief and soon supplanted by an appropriately dark, spicy medley of nutmeg, ginger, orange rind, and clove/carnation on a leather and patchouli backdrop. Tempered by dry aromatics and a very generous dose of labdanum, Black Jeans’ patchouli takes on a pipe tobacco character that aligns it closely with massive, dark fougères like Pascal Morabito’s Or Black and Aramis Havana.

The tobacco-like patchouli accord grows to dominate Black Jeans for much of its development. While not as dense or loud as either of the two aforementioned heavyweights, Black Jeans is still a weighty and powerful fragrance, with ample projection and generous sillage. In fact, for a late 1990s scent, it’s surprisingly bold and demonstrative. Paradoxically, Black Jeans doesn’t endure all that long on my skin. It enters its leathery, labdanum-rich fougère drydown inside of two hours, and is difficult to detect at all by the four or five hour mark. It’s not tragically short-lived, just surprisingly so for something so assertive in character. I very much like the stuff, but in the era of sterile aquatics and lightweight fruity fougère “sport” colognes, it’s no wonder that Black Jeans didn’t survive.

One of my top 10 favorite fragrances! Smells great and I get excellent longevity (8-10hrs avg) sometimes (12hrs)! SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!
