    Question Favorite Jacomo Fragrance For Men?

    Just wondering what everyone's favorite is, from this great underrated house.

    For me, it's the very underrated Paradox Green for Men. This one is hard as hell to find now for men, but a real gem, very green and earthy, reminds me of one from the Un Jardin Hermes line, I can't remember which though, but it has the same vibe as that entire line does, being green, fresh, and fairly transparent.

    Close combat between Jacomo de Jacomo and Rouge for me, with a special mention for Silences (I know it is not a male fragrance and cannot be listed within this poll, but in my opinion, it still has quite an unisex potential, appropriateness and notes development).

    How about Jacomo for Men (aka Silver, 2007).
    I really enjoy that one. An excellent scent and a great value like most others from this house.

    Not on the list, but I'd vote for Silences, fresh green chypre.

    I have to try paradox green, then. I tried Paradox Blue, so much beloved by Turin, but it's a bit too aquatic and sweet for me. I can see it as being a winner in the aquatic world, though. I also have to try Anthracite, which seems to be well regarded.

    Really? I don't get the aquatic out of it. I get more of a dark citrus, meeting an almost gourmand vibe. Reminded me a lot of Ultraviolet from Paco Rabanne. Also get the similar dark citrus inky note that I get in Navy for men. Blue is nice, but it's just one of those fragrances that does nothing for me.

    I have Deep Blue & enjoy it. The drydown has a leather/birch type note that reminds me of Aventus. The top is a fresh fougere type scent with a heavy violet leaf note. If you like the opening of GIT/Cool Water & the ashy drydown of Aventus, then Deep Blue is a cheapie worth checking out.

    I recently tried Silver, aka Jacomo for Men, thought it was pretty bad too. I didn't get any coffee from it, and got pineapple for maybe 5 seconds, no joke. It dried down to a typical run of the mill linear scent.. it really had nothing to offer, glad I got a sample from somebody and didn't get stuck with a bottle, because it would have gotten no wear from me.

    I also agree Aura was ok. Bottle is pretty wicked, I swapped mine to somebody, but sometimes I miss it. Reminded me of Gucci Envy, but spicier with less incense. It was just kind of so & so though, it never got any wear from me back then when I had it, and I only had about 50 frags then.

    I need to try this one. Problem is, I already own CW and GIT, and really don't wanna be stuck with something else too similar.

    Cologneist:

    I see - there is actually a Blue for men, separate from the regular blue. The blue I have (which is not the for men) can be described as a calone fruit salad.

    The topnotes are a bit annoying on this one (really strong & a bit dated violet leaf), but the mid & drydown are where it shines. The base has that ashy/birch type leather note, and it's mixed with a clean lavender & geranium. The base kind of reminds me of Aventus & something like Platinum Egoiste or Legend mixed. (ashy/birchy, but cleaner than Aventus).
