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.
For about fifteen minutes, Sander for Man flirts with greatness. The cool minted citrus and aromatic opening is a little shy on me, but the scent soon opens up to expose a brisk combination of green herbaceous notes, conifer wood, and spices. Pepper and cypress keep things crisp and clean, while a hint of smoky incense throws an intriguing shadow over the olfactory landscape. At this stage Sander for Man resembles several of the early Comme des Garçons scents, not only in content, but in its overall style: an unabashedly synthetic composition that strives for novelty without trying to smell even remotely like anything in nature.
Then, rather suddenly, the whole structure is swamped by a wave of standard issue fruity-green fougère accord. From that point on, it’s just another banal Cool Water wannabe, made more disappointing perhaps by the occasional hints of cypress, pepper, or incense that remind me what Sander for Man could have been.
the ideal gift
One of the most friendly scents around, if you need to buy someone a new cologne (for a man) and you dont know which one to take because scents are very personal, pick this.
The dislike score is low everybody likes it in his own way.
At fragrantica 203 voted this scent as Like/love and no dislikes.and one member here at basenotes dislikes it on the review spot.
That must say something.
Its a very pleasant, fresh, integer but softspicy comfortable scent.
Not mystical, not dark, not playing games with your nose and mind.
Just a good and comfy fragrance which is often from time to time a good one to pick.
Sillage/projection is average to good
Longevity is ok
Good for office or day in the park wearing very versatile and.
Pros: Versatile,casual and office friendly
