Live Jazz starts with a bracing citrus blend of lemon and grapefruit that is at once bitter and grapefruit sour. The mint note is prominent and creates an overall "citrus cool" accord that I find very attractive. This opening works extremely well in very warm weather. The herbal notes, mainly coriander, help Live Jazz from hurtling over the edge as do many citrus fragrances. "Citrus green" has emerged, until the cedarwood and soft vanilla anchor the fragrance. Live Jazz is not a sillage monster, though it is bit sharp during the first one half hour or so. This fragrance has typical YSL quality at a very good price. I wear Live Jazz to the office as well as wandering around at the mall on weekends. It is versatile. While Live Jazz doesn't conjure images of John Coltrane, it does make me feel comfortable in my skin. More often than not, that is good enough for me. A solid and recommended summer scent.
