Reviews of Les Jeux sont Faits

Smells like a church. I mean come on...
20th December, 2020
Another deep, dark and complex from one of my favorite houses. What we have here is a boozy, woody and resinous concoction. Imagine a wooden chair. Now imagine that chair has been varnished with rum and tobacco and left to sit for 25 years. That's the kind of vibe you will get.

My only issue is that after the first hour it does start to fall apart slightly. It loses a lot of power and some of its magic. If I was marking the first 60 minutes it would be a 10/10 but as things stand I will give it a solid 8/10.

On paper, this is a nice pine forest with hints of booze underneath, but it almost completely falls apart on my skin.

There's a strangely minty pine forest smell, made weirdly sweet and artificial with some sort of saccharin candy note, while a background hum of cat-pee currant, tobacco, and musk pair with that pine and some lemon to smell like old-fashioned bathroom cleaner in a stinky bathroom.

I usually like animalic perfumes and dirty forest perfumes, but this just doesn't get it right. It's like Les Jeux Sont Faits is trying to be three or four uncomplimentary things all at once and, if you look anywhere past the pine, it's just a mess.

Les Jeux Sont Faits is a more feminine version of the brilliant Amouage Journey Man. The former is more immature fougere and floral ebullient and demanding attention when first applied but settles down and stays noticeable for hours.Solid rich mix of angelica rum cognac tobacco. Journey Man is cleaner more masculine slightly peppery but not so you'd single it out and the best evening/special occasion cologne I have tried.
Will suit different personalities. Both are recommended but the latter is a super star.

Fragrance : 3.75/5
Projection: 4/5
Longevity: 4.25/5

The beginning is stank nasty, but that only lasts a few seconds. After that, I really enjoy it. FWIW, I am a woman (this is considered "masculine").

Lots of aromatic vigor in the opening... The angelica, and to a much lesser extent, the petitgrain deliver their aromatic attributes with full force over, around, and through the platform of dried fruits, rum, gin, and tobacco. It’s quite a show: sort of Arabie with tobacco and aromatics, but not exactly gourmand because of the tobacco and wood notes. Les Jeux Sont Faits is remarkably enjoyable. When the aromatics begin settling down after about a half hour, the heart is left with a rich tobacco, sandalwood, patchouli, and labdanum with a little sweetening with vanilla. The tobacco / wood base is the kind I usually enjoy – more rough than smooth… more bitter than sweet. It sends very little sillage at all, but it remains an excellent masculine skin scent. I’m not sure, but maybe I like this better than Arabie.
