    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.

    My goodness, I hated the EDT, but when a great deal approached on the EDP I took a blind buy, and so glad I did. It's fantastic! It's so much smoother, that hideous burnt rubber accord is nowhere in sight, and now I get a smooth vanilla and spice oriental, that seems to be timeless. Likewise, I think Boucheron pH EDP is one of the best verbena frags I ever smelled. Boucheron does really bad men's edt's but really good edp's.

    I prefer the EDT. More aromatic, easier to wear. The EDP is kinda cloying.

    Though I own and love Jaipur EDP, I think you should just skip the entire line and stick with Opium PH. Beautiful spicy oriental and no powder.

    My thoughts are sort of the same. I sold my bottle of the EdT (when moving from US to Canada) and miss it at times. Later I got to have the EdP but swapped it.

    I found a great deal on the 100ml EDP recently. Couldn't be happier with it. Yet to try the EDT.

    It's pretty bad, you're not missing much. It almost smells like a failed batch of the EDP, like the wrong ingredient fell into the barrel.

    I've worn/had decants of both, and now own a FB of the EdT, which I bought because it was airier and had better note definition.
    Sadly, it is the EdP that I prefer, because of its plushness and depth - this for me is an evening scent; it's bonhomie in a bottle.
    Spring is coming. Selecting from : Penhaligon's Elixir, Juniper Sling; Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta pour Homme EdT, Bottega Veneta EdP; Etro Heliotrope, Gomma, Dianthus, Palais Jamais. Aramis Tuscany; Knize Knize Ten, Hermes Equipage (vtg), Bel Ami, Prada Infusion d'Iris. Decants/samples - various fougeres

    How is the current version of Jaipur EDP? The last time I smelled it was about 10 years ago.

    Just got a good deal on a bottle through Fragnet's open box sale. My first time trying it, so I can't say what it previously smelled like, but it's really nice. I don't get this cloying sweetness that others have alluded to. I get a boozy vanilla, lots of spices, and some woods in the dry down. The vanilla note kinda of reminds me of Hermes Vanille Galante, being sort of dry, even bordering on medicinal. Everything is smooth and balanced, and it's fantastic. The base is pretty weak though honestly, I mean, by around 3-4 hours in, I don't get much except a light vanilla and very faint woods. It doesn't last very long I guess, which shocked me because it had a very strong opening. Could just be my skin chemistry too. I'd have to read some more reviews in depth and see what others say about the base.

    I don't see a batch code on the sticker, my bottle looks the exact same as the one featured on Fragrantica for this fragrance.

    Thanks for that description. That sounds really good actually. I thought it smelled great when I sampled it, but maybe a little too sweet. Kind of like a masculine Shalimar. May have to get a bottle of the current version and check it out, seems like a great deal for just under $30.

    Now that I think about it, holy crap, it does smell like a masculine Shalimar.
