    Default Jazz / Rive Gauche

    I was running late this morning & didn't give much thought to my cologne.
    I grabbed a small decant of YSL Jazz and gave a few spritzes.
    While driving to work I realized that this smells almost exactly like Rive Gauche PH.
    Does anyone see a distinction between these two?
    By the way Rive Gauche was my last purchase, I do like it.


    Cheers;

    I find Jazz to be a lot more floral than Rive Gauche, but I suppose they are in the same "ballpark"... agreed though, both are winners.

    I never would have guessed these two are close! RG is such a barber-shop scent, and i've never seen Jazz described that way (although i must admit i've never smelled it). In what ways are they similiar?

    I sometimes get funky stuff happening when I spray on my skin. One day a fragrance turns out really strangely just for one day , then it's back to normal. I would never has guessed that RG and Jazz could end up smelling the same though. Having said that I tryed Opium L'Orient (limited edition 'Lite" version I believe) and it turned awful on my skin. This must be the only YSL fragrance which has done this as they are all lasters and have a lovely progression as they dry-down. Thank GOd it's only a limited edition then!

    I recently bought RG and i liked it so much that i ended up buying another full sized bottle coz i was getting it cheap. Jazz has been sitting in my wardrobe for almost 12 years now since the time it used to come in that black and white bottle.

    I must say that both RG & JAzz are indeed identical to an extent and spraying one does remind me of the other. They do have some similar notes but then they have notes that are different as well. I really dont know how to define and explain the notes and this is the best that i can say.

    One this is for sure that BOTH are amazing frags and I luv them....
