    Default Frapin 1270 or Amouge Jubilation XXV

    I'm intrigued by the reviews. I'm thinking of purchasing something a little different soon and I keep coming back to these two.

    What do you think of these 2 frags?

    I'm sorry to tell you but it may be a moot point.
    Frapin no longer is making/distributing 1270. See updated & corrected info below.

    Let me explain why I mention this: although you may be able to find some 1270, why fall in love with something you know will be difficult to find in the long term?

    You can't go wrong with the Jubilation & it's available.

    Jubilation XXV is one of the best fragrances I've ever smelled...no exaggeration.

    1270 still appears on the frapin.fr website.
    --------------------------------------
    Added for clarity:
    A link to the fragrance appears in Frapin's News category.

    I understand your reasoning pertaining to 1270. If I did purchase it and liked it alot, I would hunt it down like a rabid dog when I wanted a refill. However, I haven't come across a frag I love that much....yet.....

    Maybe I should go the sample route on these 2 frags like all the intelligent people on this board seem to do.

    Wait a minute!

    I spoke too soon!

    TwoRoads, thank you for the information. I have emailed Frapin directly & will post a response here, should I receive a reply.

    However, it looks like Frapin 1270 is being reissued in the new packaging. I had been told (when I bought the last bottle in stock at Aedes) that it was "no longer being manufactured". This was more than a year ago. My sister fell in love with 1270 & I tracked a bottle down for her birthday.

    Now...if you go to Luckyscent's website......you can preorder it.
    Wonder if the juice is the same as what was in the circular bottle?
    If the photo is true to life, it looks a lot lighter in color to me.

    Please report back with your thoughts on these. I tried smelling Jubilation from the bottle but couldn't smell anything more at that point.

    Agreed. This scent is sweet, masculaine, clean, and sexy all rolled into one, perfection in a bottle. Amouage's Dia is also really nice too.

    Same here. It touched me so deeply and immediately that I knew I had to have it. No, I knew it already had me.

    It's so special to me that I have refrained from mentioning it much on the forum. It's almost like it's so... private to me that I jealously guard it and don't want to lose any of that magic by talking about it. LOL, it's the only fragrance that has done THAT to me before. Sheesh.

    I shall now go back to a position of reverent silence on this matter.

    I love Jubilation XXV.

    I have about one application left in my decant, and I'm saving it for a special occasion.

    Obviously I'm not saying the following are the SAME or even that similar, but I'm curious if anyone else has drawn a mental connection between Jubilation XXV (definitely a more complex, rich, and opulent fragrance) and Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir... there's something about the fruity prickly incense in both that recall each other in my mind. Just curious The first time I tried Jubilation XXV it was killing me... "this REMINDS me of something!" I later sprayed on Pom Noir and realized this was the fragrance that I had in mind. I love the way when I breathe warm air on Jubilation XXV I get this huge waft of blackberry, like blackberry jam... it's a really great fragrance.

    AromiErotici, did you realize in the LuckyScent description of Jubilation XXV that they suggest that fans of Frapin 1270 try Jubilation XXV? Is that what inspired you to consider them together? Just curious

    I don't see the connection at all.

    PN is much more boozy/plummy red port wine oriented with that fizzy, medicinal (menthol?) background.

    JXXV is spicy incense, resins, no booze, no menthol, smoke and dry frankincense. JXVV is closer to Envy for Men or Gucci Pour Homme by Gucci. But way better. But, like PN? No not to my nose.

    Yeah, I didn't think so... I felt a little silly asking honestly... they are both so different... I was just throwing it out there... I only feel that little sensation right at the beginning.. I retract my question... let's move on... hehehe... interestingly though, LuckyScent's description mentions this fruity/boozy sensation...

    Yes......LuckyScents steered me to Frapin 1270 and after looking awhile, both frags intrigue me. I'm in the process of acquiring a sample of Jubilation.
