    Default Christian Dior Jules

    I really miss this classic spicy fragrance that i used to love wearing in the 80's. Are their still any fans left out there?

    A few questions: is this still available for purchase anywhere except ebay where they charge silly prices?

    In your opinion, which scent, that is still readily available, is similar? The only one i've found is Epic man which is sort of like a luxurious version of Jules but still not quite the same.

    Thanks.

    I am one of the fans too, but I would also request a purchasing source, since I never found this one in retail, neither online

    Hello Ken, i know there is a new bottle design out there so i guess it got reformulated. Had my hopes that it could still be purchased at retail but no idea where. Do you have the old or new formulation? Any idea how they compare?

    It is available on Dior's France website. Not sure if it can be exported though.

    Thanks perfaddict, i'll have to make some enquiries.

    Any of you guys that still use Jules, how does it hold up today? My memory is still pretty clear but it's been 20+ yrs since i owned it. It was fabulous stuff.

    It's sold at the Neiman Marcus San Francisco store. To phone, use your international code, then 415.362.3900 and ask for the Men's Fragrance counter. I don't know if they ship outside the U. S., but you can ask!

    I like Jules. I have since the first time I smelled it. However, I'm not willing to shell out the $$$ it's commanding. It's a bit too retro for consistent wears ( at least for me ).

    I find that having a mini of the vintage around for periodic personal enjoyment is sufficient.

    I bought my NIB current edition 100ml bottle right here off Basenotes For Sale thread a few weeks ago for $90.

    Wow, thanks for this comment, Jaime! I wore Jules "in the day" and I'd love to see what I think of it now. I'll be sure to check it out when I'm in SF.

    Yeah, I love it.

    This woman will get it for you in France for $140 or so. The new stuff is still good.

    Count me in as a fan as well. I got mine at my local Boston Neiman Marcus, on a total whim when I saw it on the shelf. They don't seem to carry it all the time, however.

    I recently saw this in Dubai duty free in the "Higher" bottle! I was sooo surprised! I've never smelt it so I couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I found it to be a nice powdery, dandified fougere with a no animalic notes whatsoever. Has this been reformulated?

    The new version of Jules is quite the same than the older one ...BUT it doesn't last any longer ..it's a little bit less spicy and the problem is really that it became a skin perfume after half an hour .
    I'm really looking for something smilar to the real Jules

    As many said, you can easily get it in Paris. Love it, such a good ol' school woddy spicy frag. Too bad it's not widely available

    I own and enjoy Jules by Christian Dior. It is like visiting a trusted friend from bygone days - immediate, good vibes flood over you.

    For those in the U.S., a local Niemen Marcus rep recently sourced some for me out of its Dallas TX store. I'd check there, first, and any of their other larger metro stores.

    Before that, I'd tried calling the SF NM (mentioned above) but they were out at that time (Dec 2011?). Keep checkin' out the big city NMs! Call, don't rely on the online inventory... I've never seen Jules offered up in NMs online inventory.

    Count me as fan. I own medium formulation (transparent bottle, silver cap). Took quite a quest to get it.
    Never saw it in fragrance & cosmetics retail chains here in Moscow.

    I just owned the after shave at the end of the 80s, but I loved it. Perhaps the EdT was a bit strong to my taste, nevertheless a really great scent.
