    Default YSL Live Jazz: Worth a blind buy?

    Usually I like to try samples before I buy fragrances, but Live Jazz is pretty cheap anyway. Do you guys think it is worth a blind buy?

    If it's cheap at your country, then why not?
    For me, i make sure i tried it. Live jazz doesnt last on me anyway. Probably for 1 hour and its gone

    I would say yes if you like mint.

    I'd say so. It is an excellent fragrance available at a bargain price and would be a worthy addition to your wardrobe.

    Refreshing minty grapefruit in the opening that drys down to a light vanilla woody base. One of the most refreshing fragrances you can buy when it is really hot. I say go for it!

    I don't think you should ever blind buy anything, period. I have a whole drawer full of scents to attest to that.

    But Live Jazz is the safest blind buys out there. It's a wonderful fragrance, and can be worn anywhere, any time.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Smells a little like water on the rocks with a lemon on top, but overall a definite blind buy.

    The only reason it wouldn't be safe is if you don't like one of the 3 things: mint, cilantro, or grapefruit.

    It's a great fragrance.

    If you like clean, linear yet unassumingly classy minty-herbal scents, then yes

    I'm a mint fan and because of that I blind bought Live Jazz because everything that I read said that it was a great mint fragrance. You do get that initial burst of mint at the beginning but it is very short lived and then it is gone forever, at least on my skin. Then you get a very strong Cilantro for the remainder of the dry down and then it softens a little before it's gone. I still like and wear the fragrance often, but it's not about the mint like A LOT of people on here would lead you to believe. It's mainly about the cilantro. I think it's a safe blind buy as I have been happy with it and I bought it blind, but I just thought I'd give you a heads up of what it is and what it isn't. Some might disagree but I have had many family members and friends tell me what they smell when they smell Live Jazz and everyone has told me they smell Cilantro, and unless they smell it right after it's sprayed they would never guess that it had mint in it. So..verdict, it's a great, refreshing Cilantro fragrance. But then again, I'm a huge mint-head and I really wanted it to be all about the mint.

    Here we go again-- I'm gonna blind buy this one too. It's been on my list to test, anyway. Just picked up Rive Gauche and then Kouros blind, so I am on a blind roll.

    definitely no! not coz i don't like it, but coz of the very risky "rhubarb" note. it's not a common note and once u don't like it, it is not tolerable at all.
    Seasonal favorites :

    Winter : The Dreamer & Burberry London
    Spring-Autumn : Bvlgari Pour Homme & Aqua Fahrenheit
    Summer : Bvlgari Aqva & Bvlgari Extreme
    All-Rounders : Prada Man & Bleu de Chanel

    Somebody once said ''It is like a Creed in disguise.'' Awesome drydown with that 'touch of vanilla' but that coriander note that kills it for me.

    I agree with ya. I don't know how people can describe Live Jazz without mentioning the cilantro aspect of it. It's the most prominent note by far.

    Not a good blind buy. Has a terrible fake cilantro note that is overpowering. Look at how many bottles are being sold because it was bought blind.....

    Completely different scents. I think Pasha and Roadster are way more original than Live Jazz.

    Buy a sample. That's what I did.

    I find Live Jazz to be like putting your head under the vegetable misters at the grocery store. My first blind buy and I couldn't be happier.
