Jil Sander Man is a very nice woody and smokey fragrance. Starts of with a subdued citrus ouvre, before fast evolving into a herbal, smokey (myrrh) cedarwood base. Close-to-the-skin sillage after a short while and longevity is not as good as one would like.
But there is hope! There is Jil Sander Man Absolute. This version has a buttery aura (vanilla/tonka?) that JS Man does not possess, with a tobacco-smoke edge to the already smokey myrrh and cedarwood. The scent wears close to the skin, but is quite intense and has very good longevity. JS Man Asolute makes me feel good with myself all day.
IMO, if you are going to buy blind, you would do better buying the Absolute version.
