    I would recommend these various spicy, woody, and gourmand types:

    Guerlain Bois D'Armenie
    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
    Chanel Egoiste
    Montale Red Aoud
    People of the Labyrinths Luctor et Emergo

    You might also want to sample the Frapin and Serge Lutens lines.

    Body Kouros is very similar.

    Honestly, give Guerlain's Shalimar a try, it has the same powdery vanilla but it lacks Jaipur's cinnamon on top:

    Body Kouros is similar. Maybe some people don't realize this is not the same as Kouros.

    You may wish to try the Jaipur Homme Eau de Parfum instead of the EdT. It does kick a little more.

    Consider Habit Rouge, Lalique pour Homme (Lion) or the original Comme des Garçons EdP.

    Sounds like the issue is olfactory fatigue, not the scent. Note-wise, Obsession for Men seems to be closest, though I only have vintage and whatever is out there now may not smell that much like it, for all I know.

    Remotely similar, imo:
    Guerlain Habit Rouge EDP and Shalimar
    Lalique PH EDP
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day". I don't want to miss that

    Current Top 12 Spring: | Chanel Allure Blanche | Guerlain Homme Intense |
    Dior Fahrenheit | Givenchy pour Homme | Carolina Herrera for Men | Narciso Rodriguez Him | T. Mugler A*Men Sunessence | Trussardi Inside | C. Herrera Chic | Azzaro PH | M. Kors Michael for Men | Pal Zileri Sartoriale |

    Michael Jordan and Body Kouros are nothing like Jaipur IMO. Although not the same smell, I find Habit Rouge to carry a similar feel; i.e. slightly old-school, somewhat powdery and very elegant.

    Shalimar, Pi to some extend.

    IIRC Black, Jaipur and Body Kouros are all by Annick Menardo.

    I have all three and I definitely smell similarities in their bases although they each have something else happening on top. In the case of Black it's the famous 'rubber' or rather lapsang souchong smoky note, in Jaipur it's the cinnamon, while I find that Body Kouros is the least interesting. I like all three but I love Black and Jaipur. I think the OP should try Body Kouros first and Black after that. Many people find Black a bit challenging while Body Kouros is far easier to like.

    I think the OP has already tried the EDP:

    thanx for all the replies, I have order Body Kouros as i have been interested in that anyway.....also 'olfactory fatigue' might be at play here....last night i sprayed JPH on my arm ...,after an hr or so it was gone.....woke up this next morinng i was able to smell it??

    Ask people around you if they smell it. The EDP lasts 12 hours on me, easily.

  22. #22

    in the same realm

    Opium EdP
    Original Santal

    By the way can someone compare the EDP and EDT of Jaipur, please? Especially about the sweetness and other important aspects?

    Absolutely not to Body Kouros.

    The closest match to Jaipur Pour Homme is Diesel Zero Plus Au Masculin. They are nearly clones of each other.

  27. #27

    Default Re: Other frags like Jaipur Homme Boucheron...

    Amouage Gold.

    Default Re: Other frags like Jaipur Homme Boucheron...

    Diesel Zero Plus Au Masculin is also a good idea, but if he's having olfactory fatigue with JH it will likely be worse with ZP. However, ZP is still cheap these days so he could spray himself 20 times with it and see what happens. At that point, if he thought it had disappeared in half an hour he could ask people around him to verify that they couldn't smell anything.

    Can't think of any scent that smells exactly like it -- maybe Shalimar a bit.

    More importantly, if your skin 'eats' the cloying Jaipur Homme you are going to suffer the same fate with practically all others.

    Seconding especially Heritage and Habit Rouge.

    These are variations on the Jaupur vanilla incense theme:

    Diptyque Eau Duelle
    Joseph Statkus edp
    Mona di Orio Les Nombres d' Or Vanille

    2.Hermes Rocabar (after the pine)
    3.L'erbolario Meharees (after the cloves)
    and to some extent the juniper effect in
    4.Eau Duelle by Diptyque
