    Jubilation 25 by Amouage

    Thumbs up on this classically-inspired chypre. I was convinced it had oakmoss when I first tried it, so classic did it smell, with the darkness and deepness that defines it. I didn't really get the fruit others mentioned, especially not to the degree of Mitsouko. I picked up the herbally tarragon in the opening, which dissipated in the heartnote into a more floral chypre, at which point it also started becoming less dark.
    By the drydown it was actually lighter, more floral and smoother than a chypre with oakmoss, becoming somewhat of an upside-down pyramid. I like this one - it feels great to wear it.
