    I appreciate you guys weighing in. Can I get some opinions on Cartier Pasha Fraicher Menthe. Seems that it would be similar to Live Jazz. Anyone care to compare/contrast?

    Live Jazz sorta scares me, after reading a thread about blind buying it. Several people spoke out about a cilantro note in the fragrance that rubbed them the wrong way. This makes me kinda hesitant on blind buying it. I wish there was somewhere I could try it. The description of Live Jazz reminds me of Lagerfeld Kapsule Light, which I have, and Pasha Fraicher Menthe, which I've tried and like. Both have a citrus + mint thing going on, which I think is appropriate for this season, and fitting for an older guy. The mint seems to add a more mature smell. So I'm strongly considering the Pasha as well. I'll try it this week once more to help with my decision...

    from your list, I would go with Live Jazz, but overstock.com has Bvlgari Black for under $35; a great buy.

    I dislike Bvlgari Black. Mcurtis, how safe a buy is Live Jazz? I mean, is there ANY reason why a 60+ year old man would not like it?

    Has to be Live Jazz. CK One Shock smells too much like disinfectant to me. I gave away most of my samples to a kid at work.

    I like both Live Jazz & CK One Shock (obviously LJ is better for summer & Shock is more appropriate for winter though). I don't think either would be a bad choice. As far as Live Jazz vs. Pasha Menthe; I own Live Jazz & I've sampled Pasha Menthe, and to me they aren't really that similar. The Cartier is more mature and "old school" smelling, while Live Jazz is more modern and much lighter & fresher. Live Jazz, to me, is basically lemon, rhubarb and sweet spearmint on top, with a middle dominated by fresh cilantro with the mint, citrus & tangy rhubarb in the background. It dries down to a fresh, kind of metallic/sparkling base with a a bit of ambergris & touch of vanilla. It's very green and fresh, but also has a sweetness to it. Also, the mint note in Live Jazz is a sweeter spearmint note more reminiscent of chewing gum type mint than fresh mint or menthol (as the Cartier fragrances feature).
    I personally love it more than Pasha or Roadster myself, but I tend to like fresh scents. Also, I do love cilantro as well (and it is the most prominent note in Live Jazz). It might be worth sampling first though as three of the main notes (cilantro, rhubarb, & mint) all tend to be polarizing, love or hate notes for many.

    Also, speaking of CK One Shock & 1 Million. I know it's above your price point, but Carolina Herrara's 212 VIP Men is another great choice in that type of scent. It's very similar to 1 Million, but kinda holds that fruity bubblegum note longer into the mid & drydown.

    I agree with some others on here about the herbal cilantro note. You'd be much better off with Cartier Roadster if you have any doubts.

    Man........okay...I'ma read a few more reviews on the Live Jazz, and also Pasha MF. Roadster, I don't recall liking as much as the Pasha MF, so...I'm kinda leaning more towards the Pasha.

    If you can, I would go with Pour Un Homme.

    It's 4.2 oz for $27.50 at Parfum1 now plus a 15% discount for Fathers' Day.

    I promise you, Pour Un Homme smells JUST LIKE the restroom at the community center I work out at. I would never buy that for anyone. Sorry guys. :-(

    AC, it's horrible bro. lol First time I smelled it, I was wracking my brain, trying to remember where I had smelled the exact same scent. I shook my head when I realized that the place was IN A RESTROOM! I can't have my dad wearing a scent that smells like a restroom man. Can't do it. lol

    Man, I think I have decided on CK One Shock. For 200 ml, $35 is a darn good price, and for a good fragrance. Live Jazz, I haven't smelled, which makes me nervous. So I'll probably go with this. I'm gonna see if Sephora has it. If so, I'll get a sample and have him try it. If he likes it, it's a buy!
