    Nothing like Live Jazz to me. I disagree with Roadster, Roadster smells like toothpaste and is kind of heavy. Live Jazz is light and smells like fresh spearmint and grapefruit peel.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    I agree. I also get extremely good longevity and good sillage from Live Jazz, and I don't imagine I'd want either dialed up too much.

    Indeed, Live Jazz is very long lasting for a fresh scent, it's very unique for a fresh scent too with its strong mint and coriander combo. I currently don't know anything along the lines that will surpass the strength of Live Jazz.
    Current top 5:
    1. Puredistance M
    2. Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese
    3. Amouage Fate Man
    4. Creed Spice & Wood
    5. Bond 9 Harrods Oud

    Eau de Rochas. The citrus is held up well by the herbs (basil) in the midnotes. I get a few hours from this but it is definitely a few rungs up from the very good Live Jazz in terms of quality.

    Wow...ok. I got it from one of those throw up shops in the mall. Second frag I bought there. I will take a pic of bottle when I get home. I will check the serial numbet on cosmetic check.

    Roadster is nothing like LJ. It always last well on me..
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Live Jazz is one of my go-to office scents, and I've had it last all day. However, I wore it earlier this evening, and it vanished without a trace after four hours. When I think about it, I wonder if it has anything to do with the time of application.

    You see, when I wear it to work, I apply soon after my morning shower. Today, I showered around 5 PM, lazed around the house for a bit, and applied 4 sprays just before leaving the house at 8 o'clock. By midnight, I couldn't smell it even if I sniffed my wrist.

    Maybe it's because my pores closed a few hours after the shower? I have dry skin which may not have absorbed the fragrance well enough.
