    Just checked the bottom. Printed on the bottom is: Jubilation Men. I'm assuming there is a difference between Jubilation and Jubilation XXV, no? The packing slip says Amouage Jubilation XXV Men. Now I'm confused.

    My bottle (also from beautyencounter) says Jubilation XXV on the sticker on the bottom. That is the men's version. I believe the Women's goes by Jubilation 25. I don't think there is a fragrance that goes by just Jubilation.

    Mine says "Jubilation Men" on the sticker on the bottom. Longevity and projection are superb.

    Same here, though I hear the travel spray is a watered down version of the scent...Is this true?

    No it is the same as the original scent.

    ^ Thanks. Also, does anyone just think this is Sequoia meets a little bit of Kyoto? I'm liking it, but I don't know if it's worth buying since I already own the two.

    Personally, I have found the scents to differ in quality. A recent thread confirmed the same with a few other members noticing the differences between the retail bottles and travel ones.

    I have have found absolutely NO difference with the smell/quality/sillage/longevity of the travel edition compared to the non-travel edition.

    I did find some differnces between the two scents, but they are so minor that I am willing to say that the juice is the same and the more fruity aspect in the drydown of the travel version is more a side effect of spraing vs, dabing from a vial.

    Yup, to me it is as fleeting as the smoke from incense.

    Yes, more than likely because of my TigerJuice skin, this very much anticipated fragrance did not develop on my skin at all!

    I simply could not get any projection from it. People refer to the notes, but not for me. What would be the point of analyzing the official pyramid if the notes never develop on one's skin?

    is it possible those who saying you notice a difference got a bad bottle?

    I find it extremely hard to believe Amouage would actually formulate a different juice and put up their reputation.

    I find both of my travel bottles superb with great sillage and last all day

    I Agree with you on that one.

    Longevity is excellent on me, and projection is good.

    Interesting coincidence that this thread was just revived today, because I was otherwise about to post on exactly this topic!

    I tried this back in the winter sprayed directly from a tester bottle at Jaqueline's here in San Francisco, and I remember it being rich and opulent -- in a good way of course -- but definitely not subtle or quiet or close to the skin. Wasn't sure whether I was ready to invest in a full bottle yet so I held off.

    Then last week I ordered a small decant from The Perfumed Court so I could test it again, and wore it yesterday. I used about four or five sprays from the mini-atomizer (so, maybe the equivalent of three normal ones?) and right away thought, "Wait, where is the scent?" It was present but very subtle all day. It smelled like what I remembered, just much much quieter. I even reapplied in the evening and it still seemed very quiet. I was really surprised. Anyone have any idea as to what's up here? Reformulation? Bad stuff from The Perfumed Court? Or is that just how this stuff is and I'm totally misremembering that big, rich first experience? Seems surprising from Amouage -- everything else I've tried from them is rich and strong.

    The anosmia with this one is very well known (I experience it too). Took me a long time to come around on this scent. I now absolutely love it but even if you think it has disappeared others can still smell it strongly.

    If it's olfactory fatigue, though, why did it begin immediately as faint? Or if I'm anosmic to it, why did it come across as so rich and strong when I tried it six months back? Weird.

    lol exact same thing happened to me. Was rich and strong the very first time I tried it, after that it seemed faint even immediately upon application. The sense of smell itself is easily the most mysterious, add to that symptoms of anosmia and it's anyone's guess. Same reason guy after guy after guy gets sent home from work despite swearing they couldn't smell their Aventus. You're just gonna have to trust that the Jub XXV is fine and some of us are anosmic to it, even if said anosmia seems to fluctuate.

    The notes and smell are interesting, Esentual are doing 20% off, happy to go blind but not sure of longevity and projection/silage. Without these no matter how good it smell, I am not interested.

    XXV never was never intended as an "I'm going to make myself be heard to everyone and his neighbor" fragrance. A good masculine is--just as XXV is--controlled, civilized, confident: always there for support, never for attention.

    Am having a similar experience so far. Just received my bottle of Jubilation from FragranceNet - very good service.

    I'm thinking that these bottles must need breaking-in. Because like an infinite number of other folks on here have experienced similarly, Jubilation did not perform well at all after the first day. This was not a blind buy as I'd sprayed this at a store, and the scent still is noticeable 2 weeks later on the paper strip - a gorgeous scent. Most colognes luckily react well with my skin. This Jubilation bottle so far on my skin comes across as super dry, with a preponderance of the cigarette box scent (i.e. the frankincense) more than anything else. It was somewhat noticeable on my skin 6 hours later, but it's a very lackluster and dry scent that is only mildly pleasant. We're talking 3 sprays around the neck. I immediately went back and re-read the glowing reviews, reading about how fruity this scent is etc. I see none of this part, moreover a dry incense note. Others describe what I am describing. I have the magnetic cap by the way, but I'm hearing a lot from people saying these newer bottles have little differences with the older ones. Is it possible this bottle just takes a while to open up?

    My bottle of Aventus took at least a month to finally balance itself off. At first it was overly fruity with little longevity, and then it became a smoky mess. But now all the elements have come together and it's a perfect symphony not to mention one of the better batches I've smelled. I'm thinking the Jubilation bottle might be a similar case, as it's not even been 2 days yet. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I don't get monster performance or projection from my decant of Jubilation XXV; but then again, for this gorgeous, opulent scent, I'm not sure I'd want it to be any stronger than it is.
    For me I get about 7-8 hours longevity which is close to the skin for most of that and maybe projects a few feet in the first hour or so.

    A gorgeous scent indeed... But for the price paid, I expect more than this. Again, the bottle of Aventus I bought took several weeks before it balanced off and resembled the Aventus I know and love. Will of course give the Jubilation a chance before considering any return or sell. Truly a beautiful bottle/box and presentation.

    Being a big fan of Amouage I have many bottles from this house and from my experience, I noticed that some of them improved with the time after the initial opening. I cannot speak for Jubilation XXV, but Dia, Beloved and Lyric for woman, Lyric and Epic for men have changed over the time (2-3 months) for the better.
    I suggest you to decant 5 ml from the bottle and let the bottle aside for a while. You may also shake it from time to time. You will see the improvement on the scent and on performance overall.

    No, you should never intentionally shake up your fragrances. It will evaporate those volatile molecules. You want to keep it protected as possible. This comes from the professeur de parfum, himself.
