Having been told it's very formal I did hesitate to buy it blindly for so long a time. Until last month, I thought it could probably work very well on me since in the near future I will have to meet many people for business purpose, and so I did give it a try. Contrary to the reviews, I found it nice and as easy to wear as Caron The Third Man. It smells like a classic scent for sure, and to me, it's subtle enough for everyday wear.
Talking about Jaipur, I think it's a bit more luxurious than the Boucheron due to the strong powdery vanille note, which lasts more than 12 hours on me. Jaipur is good for romantic wear and a very special night out, whilst Boucheron is for business meeting, and even for relaxing day if you dress nicely enough.
Back to the question, I think no comment could matter much since this is very subjective. Boucheron is, to me, for those who lean towards classical music and partly on a conservative side, and Issey for those into jazz, pop, R&B, and, New Age musics.
Just my 2 Baht anyway
