    Jungle pour Homme Fragrance Notes

    Jungle pour Homme information

    A simplistic oriental fragrance by Kenzo. The female Jungle has a Tiger and an Elephant, where the male Jungle is based on the Zebra. The top of the bottle has a little furry zebra mohichan thing on top, It's just for show though.

    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.

    As the name suggests, this smells quite exotic; the lime and cardamom on a background of woods initially calls to mind Voyage d'Hermes EdT but there is an added tropical twist from a ripe fruity note. A sweet creamy quality (the benzoin I think) provides contrast to the dry kitchen spices. An oriental fragrance light enough to wear in summer. Average longevity, good on fabric. One of the more interesting of the current Kenzo line-up and a solid thumbs-up from me.

    One of the most powerfull fragances even made. Projection is good but it lasts more than 48 hours on me.

    Woody and smoky.

    Definitely, not for young boys.

    I am pleasantly pleased with the sample I received of this. I like an evocative fragrance, and Kenzo Jungle feels tribal, if only in a National Geographic kind of way. The unconventional spread of ingredients is more ingenious and simple here than overblown (see; John Varvatos). It's a pleasant, warming, and slightly tropical scent on me dominated by a sweet, citric, creamy nutmeg accord. Very nice.

    Let's call this one strange. An epic strangeness. From the bottle (wavy tiger stripes and Mohican brush on top) to the juice inside, this may be the oddest men's designer frag still in production. Sour lime meets sharp cardamon and nutmeg to produce one obnoxious accord. As it matures into the base of guaic wood and amber, it gets more bearable and wearable. But the first few hours are simply intolerable. This one is definitely outside Kenzo's minimalist approach, and I can't help but think they got this one horribly wrong.
