It's a wonderful scent. Nice find!
I've only been buying and wearing fragrances for a relatively short time, and I've been meaning to sample YSL Jazz for a while - I vaguely remembered it from the past, without actually recalling where I'd smelled it or what it smells like. Then YSL repackaged (and reformulated?) it into those new smaller bottles at higher prices.
Today I saw the old 100ml bottles of Jazz at TK Maxx (the UK brand of TJ Maxx) for £29 and bought a bottle, and when I got home and sprayed a sample, memories instantly flooded back - it smelled like my dad (who's been gone around 10 years now)!
I took it over to my mum and let her smell it, and she immediately confirmed - it was one of his favourites.
And I love it - especially the woody dry-down with a hint of leather.
Wow, nice find! The original YSL Jazz is very rare, and I hope to get lucky and find it here when I drive around.
What a wonderful find. My dad also wore Jazz when I was a kid. I am so happy for you. May you enjoy your purchase immensely.
I remember it well, black & white bottle I wore in the 80's as a teenager, great juice
Thanks folks - olfactory memories really are quite remarkable.
Glad I have a bottle. The original is superb!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
of the original formulation i hoarded: 50 ml bottles x 4, 100 ml bottle x 2, this says it all!
I've one 100ml bottle of it before making this new bottle design.
Really masculine and lovely...
i tried the new formula.... Did not care for it at all
I don't even know what this stuff smells like but I love the original poster's story. Thanks for sharing.
I have a vintage 1.7 as well as a FB of the new stuff (tj maxx.)
The reformulation is a little weaker, but I still like it. Classic bergamot/lavendar/spices/leather/wood manly man's frag. Between a half hour in and 1.5 hours is a little obnoxious, but the opening and drydown are great, especially if you have memories associated with this one.
Can anyone tell me the difference between Jazz and Jazz prestige?
I like YSL Jazz! It's under radar masculine classy scent.
