Nevertheless, a fantastic scent!
I figure all scents eventually become "changed" in formula. Still, its too bad it is turned down as much as it is now.

Its a good thing you and I don't hang out, Neal
I must admit, the first time I samed JdJ, I was frightened by its strength.

I can't say I have a problem with either myself. I can still smell this for 8-10 hrs. after applying, though I will say that the projection does
diminish significantly for me after like the first 30 minutes. After that, it's got moderate sillage, which I think is perfect for this type of scent. I'm not sure I'd want to project the smell of carbon and ashes around for ten feet
Thats a very good point, Shamu. It may work as a daytime scent, in that case. I suppose I wanted an evening or night scent, hence me prefering greater radiance in this particular fragrance.

projection and longevity.
Try the Rouge version, it's almost nauseating how powerful it is. Sort of like JdJ and Joop! cooked together in a microwave. (Do not try that at home.)
The last time I experimented with the microwave, I blew up a bag of nachos.
Oh I have sampled Rouge. I almost made it into a full bottle. But, I realised a few things. First, it wears too close to the skin
....I'm serious. Second, it is soo close to Jacomo Ambro
( which is fine, really). Third, I fine the overal scent a bit offputting at certain times.
Too bad I made the same mistake with Givenchy Play Intense

I have not tried those two, but have heard good things about them.
Thats unfortunate. But I have had scents that I like soo much that I keep full bottles anyways, despite the fragrance wearing close to the skin or not lasting (ie Versace Black Jeans).
