You're Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conquistador. You've just returned home to Spain, exhausted from your expeditions in the Maya lowlands, where you visited Nojpetén with Kan Ek'. It's now 1528, and your arrival at Charles V's courts has brought so much attention that there are hordes and hordes of guests already there wanting to witness your presence. The men tip their helmets in congratulations, the women and the children smother you with countless roses and other flowers, and the Catholic priests, dusted with incense from the morning mass, embrace you and anoint you for your miraculous victory in New Spain. Upon finishing your entrance, you bow at the feet of the king with your servants, as they open a wooden box containing a vial of sap extracted from the Mayan tree of life. King Charles is naturally curious about your offering and he agrees to sample a taste, but only on one condition: you, Hernán Cortés, must prove that it isn't poisoned. You pause for a moment to think about it, and the guards brandish their weapons, your refusal warranting your death. You decide to go ahead and take a drink, truly deafened by the silence in the room and a bit unsure of yourself. You roll the sap in your mouth, it's a thick consistency with a sweet and bitter flavor that reminds you of a honeyed resin, perhaps similar to myrrh. It's not altogether the most unpleasant experience you've had, and you lap your lips and check your person, excited to find out that you're still alive. Your survival greatly pleases the king, and you turn around to the guards sheathing their weapons and the crowds erupting into jubilation. Jubilation 25 by Amouage.

There are moments of distinct pluminess, and moments of an almost-too-much cumin. It varies wear-to-wear whether it will be perfect, mysterious, unlike anything else I won, or just a bit too strong for the office. I love it.

Jubilation 25 is like the mash-up of two of my favorite scents: Mitsouko and Diorella (both in vintage form). But, it contains a rather heft dollop of cumin that makes the whole thing sing in a slightly different, more animalic register than the other two. How this scent's genuine elegance is maintained while also referencing a rather sweaty human is a mystery, perhaps aided by leavening effect of frankincense and tarragon and lemon. This is my favorite Amouage, by far, thanks to its competing, but contrapuntal elements of lightness and dark, sophistication and sweat, chypre-likeness and orientalism. The extrait is my preferred poison. It is slightly deeper and more rich than the EDP, and it lasts a bit longer, too. Gorgeous stuff!

I would classify this as a fruity oriental. The Ylang and musk are prominent , but the most significant note is that of cumin, which is not listed. As such it reminds me very much of Molyneux’ Fete and similar “skanky” scents designed for women, that include that very distinctive animalic note.

The mixture of the fruity elements and the cumin give it a very feminine projection, but that of a woman who has just come inside from a strenuous work out, so that the natural body odors of sweat combine with a naturally sweet fragrance.

It’s very nice indeed, but not at all original and its price knocks it out of the ballpark, as there are other similar scents out there at a quarter the price.

This one reminds me of Fidji by Guy Laroche. It's woody with a touch of citrus, on me. I detect tarragon, lemon, ylang, labdanum, frankincense, and vetiver. There is something else, different, I am not familiar with. Perhaps it is the davana note? My nose could not pick out any amber or musk. Everything blends nicely enough for my taste.

The opening notes, a brightish rose with ylang-ylang, davana and a hesperidic touch, are pleasant and well balanced with their sweetness that is not too heavy. The drydown adds whiffs of incense, tarragon and a slightly herbal cistus undertone.

The base adds a bit of a somewhat nondescript fruitiness, vetiver, but is also characterised by a very soft myrrhe compenent that is intertwined with a fairy generic soft patchouli.

I get moderate sillage, strong projection and eleven hours of longevity on my skin.

Thr first half of this autumnal creation, good especially for evenings, is dense and intensive, whilst the later parts are a touch less vivid and duller. Overall a nice creation and not without interesting ideas, and performing extremely well. 3.5/5.
