I wish to bump this thread because I think JB Jack Blackhas been hastily and unfairly put aside with negative opinions and comments. This is a fantastic fragrance that hides behind bold orange/tangerine mint opening. The fragrance really comes alive as it dries down. It lasts all day, and is one of the finest and most interesting dry wood fragrances I've tried. The lightness of the mix is incredibly good in the warmer spring weather.
Notes for JB include: tangerine, black pepper, peppermint, elemi, geranium, eucalyptus, tiger orchid, papyrus, black amber and blond woods. The opening tangerine notes hide the woods to come in a warm citrus mint. JB quickly dries down to a lively light woods and subtle floral incense fragrance. The comparisons to Terre d' Hermes are spot on, although it does not have vetiver as a base. I also think JB smells very similar to, but much bolder and superior to Atelier Cologne Bois Blonds which was also created by the same perfumer Jerome Epinette.
The nose for JB, Jerome Epinette is the also perfumer for most of the Atelier Cologne series (Bois Blonds, Trefle Pur, Oolong Infiniti) as well as the creator of the very inventive fragrances for Byredo Parfums - the entire line. Others in his resume are Fresh Cannabis Rose along with JB for Jack Black.
I think JB is a greatly underestimated and underapreciated fragrance. Give it a try and some time to develop - you will like it.
