    Default Mugler Cologne vs Jazz Live

    After some research on BN this 2 became my favourites for new summer scent. They both get lot of love here. I cant sample them so it would be blind buy.

    FWIR here, Live Jazz is long lasting and not typical summer fragrance. Its super cheap, and mint note sounds interesting to me (i love mint on Le Male opening) but I am afraid that it could be dated for my taste.

    Mugler cologne sounds like super fresh clean scent but compared to Jazz Live it is quite expensive and maybe too simple?.

    Which one do you prefer? Which has better longetivity? Which is more serious and which more sporty?

    I prefer the Mugler Cologne. I think the Live Jazz is better in a formal setting, but the Mugler Cologne is better in a casual setting.

    So, to answer your question:

    Mugler Cologne = more sporty

    Live Jazz = more serious.

    I found Mugler Cologne overpowering and kind of boring in a nondescript fresh/green way.

    Both a fresh and good for summer, but Live Jazz simply has more interesting notes and better development.

    The Summer heat brings out the best of live Jazz, so Live Jazz.

    I'm gonna go with Live Jazz because its more unique, in my honest opinion. Not to mention, the fragrance's development is amazing in the warm weather.

    Try the Paul Smith "Story" a little cheaper than Mugler but similar and better.

    Live Jazz. It's unique and can be had at a much lower $$$

    live jazz is awesome! it reminds me of an old dirty book youd see at the library. its sits in the corner and no one ever checks it out, collecting dust. it has a cheap cover(cheap box this frag has) and no pictures(very straight forward bottle) but man its a great scent for what it costs!

    Yeah, it surprised me too! But I received consistent and repeated feedback from friends who rarely comment on my scents that I'd overapplied cologne, when I'd only used 2-3 sprays. It lasted all day.

    Mugler cologne: casual with friends.
    Live Jazz: out to dinner with older crowd.

    Live jazz is definitely an older refined fragrance, and while its appealing, its just not as youthful for me.

    Mugler Cologne most definitely. It's a very uplifting unique fragrance.

    Live Jazz is so damn refreshing, it's just wonderful. Absolutely perfect for a scorching day.

    Last time I tried MC, I just got some weird salty slightly soapy stuff. Wasn't nearly as clean and refreshing as I was hoping. Been wanting to give it another chance though, what with all the good feedback from here.

    Though my answer comes a bit late, I would prefer Mugler Cologne anytime

    It's a fifty/fifty.
    I love to wear both in spring and summer.
    While Mugler Cologne suits my optimistic, more extrovert moods,
    Live Jazz is for moments to reflect; almost a philosophical frag, like L'Homme Sage.

    (p s : Guys, p l e a s e honor your fine fragrances by not misspelling them or using your own akas instead. I have seen certain errors not only duplicated or triplicated. Tabac Blond(e), for example, has more often misspelled than spelled properly recently, even by some of our seniors.)

    Aspen is better than both of em!!.. j/k Live Jazz by a mile.. Not a fan of the mugler cologne or creed original vetiver type scents.. too green and grassy for my taste.

    This one may be too close to call Dreamer81. I've only tried Mugler Cologne (and love it), so I didn't vote. The only practical solution I see is getting them both.

    Agreed here. I would watch an entire Will Ferrel movie if it meant I could have a stronger Mugler Cologne.

    Live Jazz is great too.

    I found Mugler Cologne to be forgettable and Live Jazz unforgettable. Live Jazz can't be pigeonholed to a certain age. I think a boy in elementary school would pull it off as well as a CEO. It's clean, manly, and beautiful, and gets even better when it dries down.

    Mugler Cologne is very overpowering on my skin, too. It really blooms after about 4-6 hours and the musk is just roaring loud.

    I'm inclined to believe that those who think it fade fast are anosmic or hyposmic to the musk.

    Tough choice but I would give the edge to Live Jazz. It smells more unique and is perfect for summer.

    Mugler Cologne is linear in its development, easy to wear, but not all that exciting nor memorable. Live Jazz is remarkable from start to finish, its progression from bright and tart to green and clean to that soft amber-y drydown perfectly executed. It is not only memorable, but as previously stated, unforgettable.
