Not bad, but for me it is a bit cloying. Has an animalic, sweetish musky character to it that is daring. Doesn't last on me for very long, another issue I have with it.
Lime, nutmeg and cedar. Restrained masculine wood scent, which Turin described as a "lactonic citrus," referring to the use of nutmeg as opposed to Cartier's Declaration's choice of cardamom. He calls it "relaxed and unpretentious," giving it four stars. I have to agree.
I am always challenged by Kenzo's combinations of ingredients in their scents, initially attracted to, but ultimately dissuaded from, liking them.
This one is the most likeable of the animal Jungle lot, not great, but not bad at all. Not outstanding, just comfortable. More the sort of scent for men who really aren't into smelling themselves, but want something presentable for their friends and co-workers.
Worth a try.

Kenzo Jungle Homme opens with a really peculiar, distinctive and to me totally pleasant accord composed by a sort of odd spicy-green-fruity blend, much aromatic and slightly milky, with sharp lime notes juxtaposed to a creamy, fruity, slightly synthetic feel of tropical fruits (banana, a bit of coconut too), enhanced by carnation and spices – notably nutmeg and cloves. Beyond this, a perfectly-blended note of sandalwood, which is quite sweet and creamy as well. Overall the name fits this scent perfectly, as it is quite an exotic and bizarre Oriental scent which surely conjures a “jungle” mood. What I admire the most is the effort to create something less usual than predictable “green-forest” clichés, trying to evoke a whole “raw nature” ambiance – spices, woods, leaves, even a sort of aqueous-mineral feel. The opening is quite bold, then it suddenly tones down to a nutty-citrus green and creamy blend with a prominent sandalwood note, all well wrapped up in a sort of “balsamic” creaminess that tames down both the fruity-sweet side, and the spices, avoiding to become either “too gourmand” or too spiced. Totally creative and distinctive, but well balanced and restrained enough to be perfectly safe, pleasant and unisex in any circumstance. Finally, on the drydown it becomes more quiet, more gentle and more dry, with spices and woods (cedar too) emerging to the point of bringing Jungle Homme almost close to a woody fougère territory – still with a balmy-sweet Oriental vibe all over, also with distant echoes of Opium pour Homme. A bit synthetic (this meaning “cheap”) here and there, but really nice and creative, also smelling fairly “niche” (in the positive meaning).
Genre: Woody Oriental
Jungle pour Homme opens with an appealing candied citrus rind and spice accord that evokes holiday baking without slipping into syrupy excess. What smells to me like an indolic orange blossom adds animalic flair as the scent develops, while the spice resolves firmly toward nutmeg. Tonka and buttery woods, especially guaiac, establish a smooth, plush olfactory texture that strikes me as the chemical equivalent of dark velour. Once the woods and nutmeg fall securely in to place Jungle holds to a linear course for several hours.
When it arrives, the drydown is a soft, coumarin-infused woody oriental structure, which while appetizing, is too dry to rate as truly “gourmand.” At no point in its development is Jungle a loud scent, and while I wouldn’t call it weak, it neither projects too far from the skin, nor leaves clouds of sillage hanging in the air. Despite the moniker, it’s a polite and subdued oriental that would not be out of place in the office. If you’re familiar with Armani Code for Men you’ll have a fair idea of Jungle’s overall demeanor. It’s undeniably pleasant, it won’t offend anyone, and nobody will remember it after you leave the room. If you like this genre, you might want to try Habit Rouge or Jaïpur Homme, both of which run along vaguely similar lines while packing much more punch.
