JSfM is a low-key, casual fragrance perfect for long, strenuous bike rides. Leafy violet and mint intermingle in the pleasant opening. Slowly gives way to the spice route – cardamom & pepper. The base reads like a niche fragrance – myrrh, labdanum, incense, but it’s really nothing like that. This is JSfM’s weakest aspect – it’s not very coherent and all I can detect is a weak synthetic wood accord. Still, I’m not dissuade from JSfM. I just save it for those long bike rides.
It took you about two minutes to realize this smells a LOT like Calvin Klein Euphoria for men. Which you like, but haven't worn in years. Where is that bottle, anyway?
It's been too long since you've smelled Euphoria to make a proper comparison, but you're pretty sure you're right. With this one, you get to say you're wearing Jil Sander, instead of Calvin Klein, which probably has the "less likely to be recognized by a soccer mom" cool factor. Right?
This is pretty easy to wear on days you want something pretty easy to wear. Totally pleasant. A thumbs up, though perhaps a pretty lazy one.
By far the dullest Jil Sander masculine scent ever for me. It smells literally like a couple of really basic and bland aromachemicals thrown and stirred in a bottle, the same kind of stuff you can find in any masculine sport-woody deodorant. Beyond generic, a true nowhere in a bottle. No direction, no inspiration, “nondescript” to say the least as other reviewers already stated. I am sorry to say that since I’ve always found Jil Sander scents much underrated, and I am usually quite a big fan of the brand, but there’s surely way better among their offerings – actually almost anything’s better than this in my opinion. As regards of the smell, notes speak for themselves and there’s not much to add for me, just imagine them in the most boring and unsubstantial rendition possible: a cheap woody-peppery-herbal scent with a bold, pungent synthetic feel and a sort of far background similarity with herbal-aquatic scents like Rochas Aquaman or Lanvin Oxygene – a distant echo tortured and buried under a drugstore mess of cheap woody aromachemicals. Meh...
This is what i call the best fragrance that i have ever i tried of JIL SANDER and a new must have for me.SANDER FOR MEN strikes a balance of warm spice and wood notes blended with fresh contemporary notes. Elegance,Handsome,Masculine, classic and modern at the same time.
It starts off on green notes of mint, balanced by cinnamon which quickly meet bold accords of pepper, nutmeg and a sweet touch by cardamom and finish on a soft and warm base notes that result is a extremely masculine fragrance without falling into any of the common fragrances.
This JIL SANDER EDT is a very pleasant scent for EVERYDAY and OFFICE use. suitable for SPRING days and also Sunny days in AUTUMN seasons and a modern character.
Longevity?Good on my skin.
If you asked me, "What fragrance do you feel is completely devoid of personality?" Jil Sander for Men would be my answer. It's a vaguely fresh synthetic concoction that feels immediately sterile and right at home in George Orwell's "1984." The bottle's annoying too. Thumbs down.
