Reviews of Great Jones

Super-dated fragrance that REALLY has an old-man vibe. Sprayed lightly -- it smells like a mistake. Sprayed heavily -- it smells like you're making a point. Confidence is the key with this one.

Wow, Great Jones really is like an improved Paco Rabanne from the middle of the 1980's, albeit with a slightly different opening and middle stage.

GJ starts off with a nice citrus note, then adds a floral and finally drops into a woody musk in the longest final stage. It's been many years since I wore PR, and I don't recall a development like that, but the later woody musk stage took me back to college. I wouldn't consider the original powerhouse PR again for my wardrobe, but I really like the main body of that scent and feel like GJ is a freshened up, toned down and modernized version of PR. I'll finish my sample to see if I would wear Great Jones enough to purchase a bottle at Bond prices.

For anyone my age who used to love Paco Rabanne, you should check Great Jones out. Thumbs Up.

Starts like a fougere and finishes like a chypre. Think of Paco Rabanne turning into the drydown of Chanel Pour Monsieur after 5 minutes and you will know what to expect. It's almost a 2-in-1 deal. Quite nice, decent performance and amongst the best packaging in the business.

Very nice citrus/floral scent at the beginning. Then turns into a soft musk that I love. This is my second Bond No. 9 and I am very pleased with it. It lasts a very long time on me.

Superior citrus scent in my book. Most reminiscent of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet, but not cloying and harsh as that scent can become.

Great Jones - I wonder what the name signifies? - is a clean, bright orange citrus that I find quite the best in that category that I have ever encountered.

Too bad the Bond line is so expensive. If it were more affordable, I would add a bottle to my collection. As is, I will make do with the memory of the sample - these are readily available and cheaply on Ebay. Treat yourself to one.

I hated this when I first put it on, but then realized you have to apply this on the arm or chest only, and then in small amounts...It smells ok in very small doses, but too much like a strong green bar of soap up close. Better than most Bn9s, but I couldn't pull it off...
