    Default Jovan Musk for Men Evening Edition

    Has anyone tried the Evening Edition of Jovan Musk for Men? I am presuming it is an intense version which Jovan launched in the '80s.

    I haven't seen this edition. Is it a new release?

    Hello -

    I wanted to pick up this old thread. One of the rarer bottles from the Jovan line. I was able to get a couple of the small .85oz (25ml) splash bottles of this for a fair price. They were dusty, but well-kept.

    Jovan Musk for Men Evening Edition was released in 1985 - and has since been discontinued. Not impossible to find, but definitely rather rare and something that is guaranteed to be "Vintage" if you have some.

    I did a full-wearing this evening of Vintage Jovan Musk for Men (original). I put several dabs of Jovan's evening addition on my forearm to do a test. It is definitely different. It seems to be a more focused scent - I get more animalic musk and not mint or light notes like in the regular formulation which is airy and radiant. The spices are deeper & darker - more pepper. I find the carnation-clove to be more prominent as well. This wears a bit closer and has a fullness. In a decant spray, it opens more, but the notes are still the same. Amber seems to be turned up as well in the base, along with the richer musk.

    A blended wearing - splash-on the Vintage Jovan Musk for Men and then a couple of sprays of the Evening really nice. They both compliment one another perfectly and the subtleties next to each other are very apparent.

    I am going to do a more full wearing in the next couple of days - but curious to hear what others know as well from this old thread. The spices are there but not much citrus at all, but it is definitely a stronger musk and more "formal" scent. I still get some florals, amber and wood. Interesting.

    Anyone else have comments on it? I am liking what is here. The contrast of it next to Jovan Musk for Men (Vintage as well) is what really shows just "how" different it is).

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
