    maybe my nose is off but I've worn the EdP a bunch of times and my impression is it's a fairly standard aromatic fougere type scent with a creamy accord added, much like Rive Gauche PH. I find RG more powdery and anise heavy and Boucheron slightly warmer but also had some kind of buzzing synthetic side that try as I might I just couldn't get past. I wanted to like this but RG will remain my go to for this sort of 80's barbershop type scent.

    A fancy, overwhelming oriental powder bomb. Smells old fashioned and excessively formal, in my opinion.

    I wanted to like this a lot. I bought the EDT and EDP at the same time based on countless positive reviews. I can not wear either. It's so powdery and dandyish and I feel ridiculous when I have it on.

    That's my honest opinion of Jaipur. Wish I had something better to say about it.

    Well this thread sure started out dignified. "Smells like old people". Ridiculous.

    This has an older vibe to it, but only with respect to 20-something mostly synthetic aquatic fragrances. I'd say it's more suitable to guys in their 30's and above, but not for someone in their 60's and above unless they have a definite younger personality.

    It can be a bit cloying and heavy in warmer months. Definitely for the cooler months.

    In my top 10 masculine fragrances ever. Pure golden powder. It's exotic, refined, dandy, an unusual take on manliness, plus it smells so gorgeous and clean. By the way I took it with me last summer in Sardinia, Italy, and it worked surprisingly well (perhaps the weather was not humid, though).
    My current top five:

    Tiffany - Tiffany for Men (vtg)
    Yves Saint Laurent - M7 (vtg)
    Fendi - Theorema
    Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
    Gucci - Gucci pour Homme

    The EDP is a beautiful, lush and magnificent scent. Very masculine in this metrosexual age and thus probably harkens to another day when men were men, hence why some say its old fashioned?

    Really great scent that deserves a sniff at the very least.

    Interesting to see you mention that. Bal a Versailles by Jean Desprez, while targeted to women, is definitely a unisex fragrance. Jaipur does seem to share a similar set of notes with it: Patchouli, jasmine, benzoin, and rose. Jaipur delivers a hefty dose of cinnamon but it's well tamed by the other notes (I usually can't stand cinnamon as a leading note) while BaV doesn't contain it. And of course, BaV has a solid dose of civet that is absent in Jaipur. But the civet note is equally well tamed by other notes as cinnamon is in Jaipur. Good thing about BaV is that because of its targeting to women, most men won't even consider it and this leaves quite a bit of inventory floating about.

    Versailles is NOT Bal Ó Versailles, two completely different fragrances.

    I quite like it. Not much to add descriptively to what is above. Might have considered it my signature scent for a few days until I lost faith in such a concept.

    This description most closely matches my impression of Ja´pur. I would also add that its smells very formal but at the same time its sillage is quite relaxing and therapeutic. Its a huge favorite of mine.

    A very well made classic. I owned it many years ago and sure I will again someday. Both concentrations are lovely but I prefer the EDP.

    I came this ----><------ close to a blind buy of Jaipur. All the notes appealed to me, so many rave reviews, plus the bottle is beautiful.

    ...but I happened to check the fragrance counter at Dillard's during a rare trip to the mall and to my suprise, they carried it. I sprayed some on and it smelled like Play-doh mixed with spice on me. My partner and I were meeting a group of members of his church for couples night and literally no one liked it on me. I learned the meaning of the term 'scrubber' that night. I have to admit though, that I could have been a bit heavy handed with the trigger because after I washed most of it off, what was left was somewhat appealing to me...and it lasted, over 24 hours after I scrubbed most of it off.

    So now I'm torn. I might ask Santa for a bottle next year as I don't want to give up on it.

    I've really been looking into this one a lot lately as well. Although I wanna keep my blind buying to a minimum if possible. I see a lot of people say it's powdery, and I am not a big fan of powdery fragrances, so I have my reservations about this one.

    You're right, my mistake. I didn't realize that there's a Versailles Pour Homme by Jean Desprez.


    Jaipur Homme can be cloying. And I honestly don't think anyone can really pull it off in the humid hot climate of Florida, unless it's a chilly winter evening. I sampled it again recently from my bottle (I admit I don't wear it often, just enjoy it as a bedtime fragrance now and then) and the initial spray can be hard to take. One definitely needs to let this dry down to fully enjoy.

    Has it been reformulated at an earlier point in time and is it currently at risk for being reformulated? I wish there was a "Reformulation Risk" thread that identifies those fragrances nearing a mandatory reformulation point. Yeah, need another excuse to buy "one more bottle."

    Great post. I don't own Jaipur but I've sampled it, and this nails it for me. It's almost as if this one tries too hard. Definitely something excessive about it.

    So the OP speaks of the EDT, but mostly everyone speaks of the EDP.. is the EDT bad or something? Are they comparable? I know older fragrances that were in EDT and EDP concentrations were very similar to each other, with the EDP just being stronger, in terms of older fragrances (as opposed to now where the EDP's tend to be completely different from the EDT -- probably just a marketing ploy). Anyways, so is the EDT bad? Because the EDT prices are MUCH cheaper. I could get a bottle for 20 shipped.

    IMO the EDT is not bad but the EDP is much richer, smoother with better longevity and projection.

    You won't get the anise type of note you get in Opium PH, but I can see how one might compare them if that is omitted.

    The EDP and EDT aren't very dissimilar. The EDT opens with a brighter note, whereas the EDP is a little and darker and spicier. The rest of the drydown is almost identical in notes, sillage and longevity. And it lasts and lasts.

    I had the EDT a few years ago and now have the EDP, and can honestly say that they are my absolute fave fragrances. Love them to death.

    We have a lot of M7 - YSL / jaipure pour homme - boucheron here but I really don't care for those kind of fragrances. M7 smells medicinal to me and jaipur smells old.
