Somewhere between an 80s/90s powerhouse and a classic, patchouli based masculine. Mark II has a strong old-fashoned vibe that made me somehow think about the vintage formulation of Givenchy Gentleman with the addition of a more consistent musky element. Patchouli and sandalwood are the real stars here and preserve the fragrance from becoming too sweet because of the tonka beans in the base. Overall I'd recommend Mark II to anyone looking for a retro masculine that's at the same time classy and slightly dark. Nice.
Fantastic. This is on a different level when compared to the other Jaguar fragrances, and this is well into the niche category. It smells like citrus, leather, wood and soap, combined in a way that's amazingly masculine, fresh and old school without being offensive (i.e. like Aramis). I hope they bring this back.
Deep, deep woods, powerful, poetic, brooding, enigmatic, unique. Sticking my neck out, I would call this the equal of any of the woody creations of exalted Houses like Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, Comme des Garcons, Comptoir Sud Pacifique or L'Artisan.
A little goes a long way. Classed as an eau de toilette, its strength resembles that of an eau de parfum or even a pure perfume. This is fortunate, since, being discontinued, it is hard to obtain a bottle. But you can still find 5 ml. miniatures from the likes of Dutyfreeperfume or Perfumechoice - and a miniature is all you will need, since a drop is all you will need.
Hardly an everyday fragrance, but fine for special occasions or a connoisseur's private moments of delight. Every fragrance aficionado should try it.
