Reviews of Sander for Men

Not a love/hate fragrance. There's a lot to just like here especially if you like a peppery fragrance. Kinda fresh/clean, a little sweet and certainly peppery. It's a pleasant smell and seems versatile enough but I cannot think of the perfect situation for this other than to smell different, which it does. I also can't think of anything I've smelled that's similar.

Performance is good in projection and longevity.

Wonderful scent! This one is a part of my "go-to" set of fragrances. Cedarwood, pepper, coriander....a nice combination that is at once confident, and also laid back. Great aromatic scent that is highly recommended.

Another average scent for men. This is safe for the office or casual wear. Spring / Summer scent for sure. Average longevity with limited projection. I get some mint and pepper with a muted dry down of wood notes. Prices are good at least so if you like to layer or looking for something light for hot days this may work for you.

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.

Future Jason:

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...
