semi-sweet orange/citrus opening that quickly devolves into a synthetic floral mess. I get a little woods/musk in the drydown, but overall the cloying synthetic floral/alcohol smell dominates the entire fragrance. Not good. Not good at all.
The opening is nice with some citrus/tangy feel but it fades away very fast. Then comes a synthetic vibe like a nail polish remover as The_cologneist said. But a good amount of ginger in the drydown saves some grace. The ginger in the base is well balanced and it reminds me of Bvlgari Blv. Overall it has nothing remarkable. I got it as a gift so I cant complain either.

Like all Jaguar perfumes, this is not exception, a solidly built perfume that has been done before. Nothing new, nothing that would stand out in a crowd. Slightly citric, orangy opening with some spicyness thrown in to a heart that is pleasant but not with a clearly dominant note, to end in a woody musky base, Not the best aJguar, not the worst Jaguar either. I like it and I enjoy it, but is a "office" fragrance, a fragrance you use when you do not want to be noticed.
It is a perfume that will offend nobody, but I would not write home about it either.
Good quality for a fair price, thumbs up!!!!
I feel the benzoin may have killed this one. How on Earth did this mix come up so powdery? The opening is nice, but 'nice' is about the best this karmically bankrupt incarnation of Jaguar is going to get.
Make the citruses more lively, amplify the volume of the heart notes (seriously, Jaguar, do this), and tone down the powder screaming from the base and you'll have a real product to sell. The original Jaguar has a citric top that pounces. This mewling just won't cut it.
Rather sweet and musky. At times, it suggests bug spray or a screechy synthetic.
Boiled celery leaves?
Verges on irritating, what saves it a bit is that it is not too heavy.
