Reviews of Les Jeux sont Faits

On paper, this is a nice pine forest with hints of booze underneath, but it almost completely falls apart on my skin.

There's a strangely minty pine forest smell, made weirdly sweet and artificial with some sort of saccharin candy note, while a background hum of cat-pee currant, tobacco, and musk pair with that pine and some lemon to smell like old-fashioned bathroom cleaner in a stinky bathroom.

I usually like animalic perfumes and dirty forest perfumes, but this just doesn't get it right. It's like Les Jeux Sont Faits is trying to be three or four uncomplimentary things all at once and, if you look anywhere past the pine, it's just a mess.

Les Jeux Sont Faits is a more feminine version of the brilliant Amouage Journey Man. The former is more immature fougere and floral ebullient and demanding attention when first applied but settles down and stays noticeable for hours.Solid rich mix of angelica rum cognac tobacco. Journey Man is cleaner more masculine slightly peppery but not so you'd single it out and the best evening/special occasion cologne I have tried.
Will suit different personalities. Both are recommended but the latter is a super star.

Fragrance : 3.75/5
Projection: 4/5

The beginning is stank nasty, but that only lasts a few seconds. After that, I really enjoy it. FWIW, I am a woman (this is considered "masculine").

Lots of aromatic vigor in the opening... The angelica, and to a much lesser extent, the petitgrain deliver their aromatic attributes with full force over, around, and through the platform of dried fruits, rum, gin, and tobacco. It’s quite a show: sort of Arabie with tobacco and aromatics, but not exactly gourmand because of the tobacco and wood notes. Les Jeux Sont Faits is remarkably enjoyable. When the aromatics begin settling down after about a half hour, the heart is left with a rich tobacco, sandalwood, patchouli, and labdanum with a little sweetening with vanilla. The tobacco / wood base is the kind I usually enjoy – more rough than smooth… more bitter than sweet. It sends very little sillage at all, but it remains an excellent masculine skin scent. I’m not sure, but maybe I like this better than Arabie.

After an interesting start, LJSF resolved quickly to a dry, scratchy synthetic woods and cumin on a too sweet patch base. I didn't care for it; and worse, it gave me a headache. Scrubbed it.

Warm, spicy, resinous, and a tad vegetal, this is a dark, wood-driven perfume with an underlying sweetness to it. A hefty labdanum is topped by candied florals, and the spice rack was raided hard to make this one as there’s cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and all kinds of stuff in it. It’s slightly camphorous and a little metallic, but overall it’s a warm, dark woody scent with a deep, resinous, rooty feel. It does, however, take a suspiciously sweet turn about 30 minutes in that lowers its IQ a few notches. Not my style, but it’s still one of the better scents on offer from this somewhat sketchy line.
