    Default Jaipur Homme - EDT or EDP

    Hi there,

    I'm starting yet another Jaipur homme edt vs edp thread. Yes, I have read all previous threads but I was wondering which I would prefer based on what I'm looking for.

    I know the EDP is better received as it is richer and smoother but what I'm looking for is which scent has the more pronounced cinnamon, is spicier overall and the more masculine of the two. I like old school scents and I'm not opposed to powder, but if they are both powdery I'd probably prefer the less powdery of the two as well. I don't particularly care about performance, so scent only. As it stands I'm leaning more towards the EDT and imagine I'd like both, but I want to buy the one I would like more

    +Cinnamon
    +Spicier
    +Masculine
    -Powder

    Also I already own Opium pour homme, how close does Jaipur smell to Opium?

    With current formulation the EDT performance was underwhelming imo, EDP makes up for the performance but I’m sure smells a little different.

    I'd go with the EDP.

    If hednic says EdP, I'd go with EdP.

    Not sure I've tried OPIUM, but JAIPUR is pretty distinctive and powdery.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    The only version I could wear for long periods was the 'Fraicheur'. Hard to find now, I suspect.

    Jaipur is nothing like Opium PH.

    i bought the edp a few weeks ago.
    id go for the edt now in warmer months.
    i like the edp but it’s a powder bomb and has an oldschool vibe that is not for everyone. the edt is an easier wear.

    I think you nailed it youself. If less powder=better and longevity is not a main concern I would go for the EDT all day.

    Yeah, Jaipur is nothing like Opium they can work in the same collection.

    I find the EDT more versatile. I’ve worn it in warmer and cooler weather without any problems. The EDP is thicker, denser..., It’s more opulent and really best suited for cooler temps.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    Speaking strictly about current formulation, so far personally got better performance but also a more impressive array of notes and thus likelier willing to recommend: Jaipur Homme EDP-also, at least where I live, price differences between the two concentrations are minimal therefore making the decision even easier

    I have the EdT. The EdP I know only from a sample, but it was a bit empty, hollow after the dense EdT. I'd never choose EdP over the EdT. Neither winter, nor summer, for all that

    I had Opium, but never again. It's simply suffocating. It has nothing to do with any Jaipur.
