The first sniff was a sobering reminder that this is a car fragrance and the general consensus is weighted far more to "like" (read: tolerate) than love. Fail.

It's green and old school, I guess, and more bright than I was expecting. It's not dark or heavy, I think you could wear this during the summer without much issue.

It doesn't smell like Krizia Uomo but the two are similar in that they are woody, green fragrances and the green is very sharp, bright, and almost like menthol in the way it hits your nose.

With Krizia, that green note smells like a fern. With Jaguar for Men, it smells like celery or cilantro, and that green note flavor is not to my liking. You might be able to kid yourself into thinking it's soapy but... why kid?

Also, the presentation feels cheap. The silver plastic cap is a thin piece of crap and the bottle isn't attractive at all.

I was curious about this one and was bound to pick it up sooner or later, I guess I'm just glad I got it on the cheap.

I absolutely love this scent. 5/5 in scent and value..
Definately one of the best bottles of cologne you can buy in its price range.( If not the best) 10 to 15$
This is definately my signature scent! It has an addictive sharp, herby and citrus peel opening that dries to an amazing powdery dry.. My only issue is that It only seems to project for about 4 hours then skin scent.. Sticks to clothes for days... I wish there was another fragrance out there that smelled like this with more projection power. I would pay large amounts of money for it.

Some say this is a mature scent. I disagree. I am 30 and this is in my top 3 scents out of a collection of around 40 bottles. I can pull this off easily but I can't wear Azzaro Pour Homme or even Polo Green without feeling like I need to wait another decade.
It is extremely versatile and can be worn day or night in Cold or Hot weather. I use it year round in Florida heat

I found a fragrance with a very similar Drydown - Guerlan Heritage. Guerlain is a little sweeter but very similar to my nose.
I recently found a vintage bottle of Jaguar (wood cap 2.5 oz bottle) on ebay. The new bottle and original are nearly identical. Just slight variances from age and different batches but identical from top to bottom and in longevity. No need to pay more for the vintage bottles.

عطري الاستثنائي, ليس كأي عطر, رائحته ليست كأي رائحه " انا اتحدث عن نفسي الآن " هذا العطر يعني لي الكثير, اشتريته لأول مره عام 1994 او 1995 انتهى في ذلك الوقت ولم اشعر به ولكني كنت احبه في ذلك الوقت كثيراً , مرت السنين وكأنه انمحى من ذاكرتي العطرية والبصرية تماماً فلم اشمه يوماً ولم اشاهده, حتى جاء عام2011 وكنت اقلب اغراضي القديمة واوراقي وخردواتي فإنني من النوع الذي لا يتخلص من اغراضه في القمامة بسهوله , ووقعت عيني على تلك الكتابات القديمة البريئة وانا لم اتجاوز الخامسة عشر من عمري لم يلفت نظري كثيراً سوى جملة "شم رائحة العطر الساحر جاكوار" !!! في تلك اللحظة كأنني شممته !! يا الله كم هي لحظة غريبة , فوراً تذكرت عبوته القديمة باللون الأخضر والغطاء الخشبي المميز وبدأ عقلي بتحريك الذاكرة الشمّية وكأنني التقط قليلاً من رائحته المخزّنة في ذاكرتي, لم البث حتى ذهبت للبحث عن صورة له في الويب وبضغطة زر أرى صوره الكثيرة !! بالطبع هذا لا يكفي فخرجت من المنزل متوجهاً إلى الأسواق اسأل عنه هنا وهناك وأشار احد الباعة أنه قد يكون متوفر لدى ذلك المتجر فهرعت اليه مسرعاً لأسأل عنه البائع فيخرجه لي فوجدت عبوته قد تغيرت قليلاً فأصبح بلون اخضر داكن وغطاء بلاستيكي مطلي بالكروم, لا يهم الأهم هو الرائحه فطلبت عبوةً جديدة بغلافها واشتريتها على الفور, ثم توجهت الى سيارتي ولم استطيع الصبر حتى فككت العلبة واخرجت العطر وفتحت غطاءه ورششت منه !!! ياللموقف لقد رجعت سنيناً إلى الوراء برشّة عطر.
لذلك لا استطيع ان اعطي تقييماً لهذا العطر تحديداً اقل من 10/10

Bought mine after receiving a very generous gift from a friend on here. It is a clean, crisp soapy/green fragrance that has good staying power. It opens with grapefruit, tangerine, orange and bergamot. The middle notes of nutmeg and cloves are superb and the dry down of patchouli, tobacco, sandalwood, pine and leather are something to behold. It represents a classy fragrance that is best suited to a mature gentleman. For me this is easily the best Jaguar fragrance in their entire canon.

Using the new formulation with the silver colored cap. The cap broke of without any impact.

Smell- herbal, soapy, musky. Very classy and old-school. yet a classic.

Quite nice. Would be better suited to evenings and colder environments.

Longevity is good. Sillage average.

Nice addition to your collection. more suited for older men.

this again is another enigma do i like it or do i love it?
i am still undecided and need longer to get used to its unique harmony.
my son tried it and said its an older mans scent and i agree,i cant see younger guys liking the mossy fern overall with a touch of citrus type impression of this fragrance.
i cannot smell the tobacco or leather but i havnt given it chance as yet.

overall how many times i will wear it is pure conjecture

for its price point what have you to lose

update after wearing it a while i now realise i don't like it so after my son refused it as a gift from me its on my dressing table unprotected in the sun....not that i care lmao

This has taken me a few sprays to get used to. There is something in it which I don't like, and that got in the way. But, a few sprays down the line, and I am really growing to like it. There are a lot of mossy and forest-like notes that wont appeal to everybody, but once you get used to and embrace them, this is a nice old school manly fragrance.

The (silver topped) bottle and packaging looks smart as well.

I had two bottles of the original in the picture - the version where the bottle has a faux tree cap.

Already back then there were reviews around about what a fine gentleman's fragrance it was. But it simply wasn't, all I got from it was a sharp and fairly synthetic mandarin mix.

Always be on your guard when buying a "car perfume", try it first if you can and don't trust reviews.

OMG, I bought this for my husband and I absolutely LOVE the scent on him; he gets many compliments on this cologne from ladies everywhere. Spicy is the best way to describe the scent. Initially I thought it was too strong but the dry down is lovely and Jaguar has staying power too, he smells great all day long. This is not a boy's cologne, this is only for a very manly man. I found this scent after doing some homework on this website. I took a chance and bought Jaguar along with some others that didn't fare so well. This was a rare find! The Oakmoss, sandalwood, basil, carnation & leather are all so appealing and very complex. Men, if you like Obsession, Drakkar Noir or Aspen you will also like this, dab some one and watch your woman MELT!

to me this is a classic..utterly masculine scent .. a beautiful strong..assertive.. aromatic green fougere.. dry woodsy.. spicy.. warm ..vibrant..extremely masculine.. perfume..its clean.. musky.. bright.. opulent..confident..
it reminds me of my child hood days.. smelling my dads and uncles perfumes..although my dad found this a bit overpowering for his use ..he was not in to very deep strong orientals.. more in to fougeres and lighter classics..
i like smelling this perfume.. just to smell it.. by the way .. this review is coming from a lady ..reviewing a male scent ,i don't use it outside the house.. i just like smelling it on my pillow or straight to my nose.. it has a calming.. serene ..effect.. its not sweet.. non nauseating.. powerful.. strong.. masculine.. almost green.. its full of so many ingredients.. yet it doesn't feel that complicated.. it is not that full or cloying.. its not that annoying.. its just full of harmony.. and its almost eccentric.. in a way classic.. it will smell good a hundred years from now ..just as how it smelled good decades ago..its the emetimy of masculinity.. a night out..work ..day.. night.. time perfume ..versatile.. true to its character.. can be a signature scent ..easily ..its a full potent masterpiece..
it has a top citrus note ..which makes it vibrant.. and bright.. it has a full heart.. and a dry base ..its a mature scent ..its an executive scent..it reminds me of quorum and zino davidof and tsar van cleef a combination of all the other perfumes listed on the side of people who like this also like this icons and some classic 80ies powerhouses
it can be used all year round but more of a wintery autumn night scent..a great addition to any classic wardrobe

سلام

اولش بوش خیلی تنده و بوی لیمو ترش و مرکبات رو میشه در اون حس کرد البته آزار دهنده نیست.

وقتی یکی دو ساعت میمونه خیلی خوشبو میشه و بوی صابونی و لوکسی پیدا میکنه.

فکر می کنم ماندگاریش در حد آزارو پور هوم یا کمی بیشتر باشه.

پخش بوش هم تا دو سه ساعت خوبه بنظرم.

خوبیش اینه که بقول دوستان خز نشده و تکراری نیست. و الان که در پائیز 93 هستیم کاریه که همه جا گیر نمیاد.

بوی مردونه و رسمی داره برای ذائقه های مدرن قدیمی بنظر میرسه.

This was the first of my Jaguar perfumes. I like the way this perfume wafts out citrus notes for the first few minutes. It clings to the skin all through the day, rising suddenly when there a hint of sweat on the body.
One of the feel good perfumes that seem to elevate my mood during the day- wonder if anyone else feels the same.
What's more, it's is VFM.

Herbal, soapy and long lasting and it's unique!.It has a faint tobacco note and there is a nice leather note in there also. The final drydown turns woody with a lovely soapy scent. Jaguar - a really excellent masculine scent.
Superb value for money.

I actually like the strong opening but it very quickly settles down to a soapy, clean type of fragrance. If only the top notes lingered longer then maybe I would like it but instead all I'm left with what to me smells like a generic soapy smell but maybe if I wear it more it will grow on me. My father, who is 65 years old, likes this stuff so maybe this would make a great gift for an older gentleman.

I got this for Christmas today from my mother. Bless her, she got the gift set which comes with a pen. While others may disagree, I think it's quite suitable for this time of year. Mine is the silver capped version, I don't really smell much citrus, it's more spice. The cap is a bit difficult pull it off and so is the one on the pen, although with the pen, it comes off easily the other side. For some reason I sniffed the pen, I wasn't expecting it to smell like anything but I just thought how awesome it would be if it did. Overall I think it's a great set and I will definitely be wearing the fragrance quite often. I won't take the pen to college though, because it's too nice. It can be my home pen. Another slight downside (well...more like me just being immature) is that the cap looks a bit like a bellend. Haha sorry, but it had to be said.

This review is for the newer version with the silver cap. I am getting woody spicy green throughout and perhaps a hint of orange in there somewhere too. I know this is being called a "mature" scent and it certainly comes out of the 80's powerhouse era but it almost has a fresh woody green aura to it as well, similar to Bleue D'issey or the like. I really like this juice. Longevity and sillage are quite good. While I don't think it's exclusively and old mans fragrance I probably wouldn't recommend for anyone under 30. I give it 7/10.

Old School but in a good way! Greens, woods, strong and uncompromising without being too in your face - a real 'Dad' fragrance - in a good sense. Make space next to your Paco Rabanne, Polo Green and Quorum - he'll fit right in.

this cologne has one of the most unique scents!

the best way I can describe it is a wonderful burst of crisp green and a hint of (although not listed as a note) saltwater sea weed.

It has lasting power and distinction. I give it a 9/10. It dries down to a very agreeable tone.

I got Jaguar for men about four or five years ago and I never truly like it.
Searching on Fragrantica I found out that this perfume is from 1988. So now I get it.
1988 was the year that (during a vacation on a ship) my mother told me to choose one perfume. And I went for the new one...YSL JAZZ.
Remembering Jazz and smelling Jaguar for men is like time travel, they are not similar but they share some qualities, and perfumes are in a way indicators of time.
Jaguar may smell a little outdated, masculine but not in a modern way, wood, pine, resin and a little spicy

This is my grandfather's scent of choice which comes from his career as a car dealer and his love of lions and other large cats. This fragrance brings back memories of playing in the car showroom as a kid and pretending to drive the convertibles. More recently it's still an old favourite and hangs around the house whenever the grandparents come to visit.
This is definitely a mature scent with a strong orange top note, a lot of complex spices and aromatics at the heart and a mixture of sandalwood and leather at its base with good longevity and projection. I love the deco design of the original bottle and wooden cap is a distinct feature. This fragrance is good for casual and everyday wear and is well suited for men over 40.
For obvious nostalgic reasons I find this scent very conforting.

Sweet, herbal, soapy and long lasting and it's unique!. I used to have the bottle with the brown top, but I think they have improved this a little, (silver top now). The tobacco note, well, I can't smell it much myself but there is a nice leather note in there. The final drydown turns woody and a lovely soapy scent. Jaguar - a really excellent masculine scent.

Word association, Jaguar, what do I think of when I hear that word? The first thing that comes to my mind is not elegance, speed, sleek design, or tradition. What comes to mind for me are years of mispronouncing the word! Not until I was in college did I discover that it is not pronounced Jag-Wire. It was pointed out to me by my good college buddy Kent, “The word is Jag-You-Are.” So there you are…or at least here I am, all these years later I still have to remind myself how to say the word. Oh the humiliation.

Second association: a weird little night club I visited in Guadalajara in 1971. El Jaguar pronounced by the way, L Ha-war. It was bright red circular arena that you descended into on narrow stairs. Hot orange and red lights heated the dance floor in the center. It was like dancing in a chili bowl inside an oven. For some reason I ended up there one night, a little tipsy and dancing alone in that flame hot arena. Oh the humiliation.

Third association: the H R Owen car dealership on Old Brompton Road in London. Every morning for two weeks while I had my breakfast, I studied it from my holiday flat on Wetherby Place at the other end of Rosary Gardens. Oh how nice, I thought each morning, how nice to have a cozy Jag-wire…Jaguar dealership at the end of the street. Not until the last day of my visit to London when I walked to the end of that block did I discover it was not a Jaguar dealership at all, but a Ferrari showroom. I really should put my glasses on right when I get up in the morning. Oh the humiliation!

Finally I think of my brothers racing green 1990 Jag xj6 which my niece drives on occasion to school. She hates that car. It seems some teenagers don’t like to get too much attention. When my niece drives that beautiful car the kids at school notice….BIG TIME. All together now, oh the humiliation!

So with all this baggage behind me I eyed my new acquisition of Jaguar for Men. The beautiful racing green bottle is of a deco design in a reminiscent shape of an old radiator topped by a silver cap. I turned the key on this baby and it stared up right away with out a sputter. No humiliation here! On first spritz you are met with fresh citrus notes of orange, mandarin, grapefruit, and bergamot. These fade very fast to the lavender, green notes, cassia, basil, anise, and thyme which in turn linger only for about ten minutes. Then the motor of this scent begins to hum as you speed along the green country roads of the imagination. Up come the middle notes of cyclamen, nutmeg, carnation, gardenia, cinnamon, jasmine, caraway, sage, rose, geranium and fir. Coming at you so fast like a spring wind in the face with the top down at 65 mile per hour. At cruising speed you enter the deep and solid dry down. With traces of the trip trailing behind you the wonderful tobacco and leather are now the majors of the landscape of this scent. They find support in Moss, sandalwood, cedar, amber and musk that just bring a balmy glow to the fragrance. Confident, strong, and entirely masculine and mature this is the best part of the whole Jaguar or Men experience.

This Jaguar lasts a long time on my skin. The silage is very good. And the best part of this wonderful fragrance is that is won’t cost you very much. The investment I made on this Jag was a mere eighteen dollars. A great sent doesn’t have to be expensive. Go ahead. Take this Jag for a spin, you know you want to. Just one little warning though, you will get noticed and unless you are my niece, that is a good thing.

I have the reissued version of this, which has a silver metal cap. I've never smelled the original version, but based on the reviews, I'll bet the reissue is a reformulation, because I smell no amber or sweetness at all in this.

The current version of Jaguar is outstanding. This is a very green, bone-dry herbal fragrance, with sharp woody aromatic notes. Basil is the predominant note, and it's buttressed by some good pine notes and strong oakmoss. There's an underlying smell of leather to this, which smooths out the fragrance a bit and gives it richness and warmth. However, this is predominantly a sharp, intense aromatic woody scent. It smells like a sharper, drier Basile Uomo.

Complex and well balanced, Jaguar For Men is perfect if you're looking for a fragrance with an intense smell, but don't want to be blown off the map.

MY RATING: 8.5/10

I was fortunate to acquire a 125 ml splash bottle, still sealed in the box! It has the wood cap and says 85% alcohol. I decanted some into a dab vial and applied it that way. Doing this, I didn't detect much in the way of top notes. It seems like it takes a while for the amber to heat up and help bring the other notes out. The orange is there but muted, and it wafts in and out gently, perhaps for a couple hours. The two main themes here are ones I found in vintage Xeryus and vintage Quorum. From the Quorum type, I get green, leather, tobacco and a bit of "freshness." The Xeryus type features a strong amber, cedar, and spice type of accord. It's definitely not too sweet, nor musky, and while the lavender note is clear, it's not irritating, as is the case in many "men's" fragrances from the 1980s. One thing that's great about this one is that it offers all the complexity, dynamism, balance, and naturalness you expect from a great vintage fragrance without any qualities that might offend anyone; hence, you can wear it for any occasion. And I see no reason why it would cause problems in hot weather.

What's really interesting to me is how much variation there is among the reviews (especially at BN). There is certainly a "grassy" aspect to it, but it's not nearly as strong as in a fragrance like Bobby Jones Cologne. There is also an almost gourmand aspect to it, with the vanilla and some other notes generating "toasty" and almost chocolate-like qualities at times. I can also see why some might feel it's powdery, though it's not a particularly strong element. So, if you don't like "shape-shifting" fragrances, this may be one to avoid. On the other hand, if you like what this fragrance offers, this is definitely a "Holy Grail" candidate. However, keep in mind that there could be reformulations, so if you get a fragrance that seems bland and much simpler, one would assume that is the case. Longevity is very good but projection/"sillage" is moderate. Also, the Quorum aspect to it does not last as long as the Xeryus (amber and cedar accord), and the grassy aspect gives way to the toasty, somewhat gourmand aspect, as the scent progresses. On the box, it says "made in Switzerland" (which may help some of you identify the formulation).

UPDATE: I decanted some into an atomizer bottle and spayed some one. That way, I do get a strong blast of orange, but it doesn't last long at all. The far drydown reminds me more of vintage Xeryus than anything else. I didn't get any chocolate type quality, which suggests my sense of smell is adjusting to it.

UPDATE #2: I just acquired a vintage bottle that is made in France. It's 125 ml spray with a fake wood cap. This one is superb, though it may be a touch less gourmand than the one made in Switzerland. I'm glad to have both and I intend to do a side-by-side comparison at some point, then report back here.

I adore this sexy scent. Its definitely mature-smelling, but its absolutely one of my favourite men scents. Sometimes I even wear it myself.

This one will make you smell very mature like the classic CK Obsession. It's very potent, sharp and spicy. I put this for folks in 40+ years old.

I almost finished the 100ml bottle of this classic fragrance, so I could say some (good) words about it: strong masculine opening that hits your nostrils with a bitter-fresh-aromatic feeling, (lavender-fruity-basil combo), slowly crossing (in 30min-1hr)into a spicy-floral heart, where I can detect carnation, sage & a bit of rose and slightly cinnamon, leaving (after 4-5hrs) a very nice trail of leather-musk-patchouli-amber.
Even if the whole sounds a little too mature, I like it for its style and confident feeling given to the wearer.
It is still available online (new version) at good prices so I will soon replace it with a new one. Average sillage and longevity, good for summer and social evenings. My rank 7.7/10. ☣☣☣

I wonder if Jaguar edt was reformulated and what is the final result. on the box in the older cologne, there is a 85% alchol, in the most recent a 88% or even a 90%. does anyone have an idea on that?

I thought I would like this - but as far as I can remember there is something in this I don't like.....Having said that, I would like to have another sniff of this again.

Jaguar for Men is one of those fragrances that never get old as time goes by. I'm not talking about the expiration date, but the timeless quality of it.
To my nose it has a "green" feeling. It is strong, masculine and elegant for daily use, especially, at professional environments.

Just a few people know, but this cologne was created by Thierry Wasser (currently, exclusive perfumer at Guerlain), in 1988, and the composition remains unchanged until today. According to official information, it has notes of Mediterranean spices, like lavender, thyme and basil, plus orange, Mandarin, bergamot and a hint of gardenia, on the output. In the heart, sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, nutmeg, fir and carnations, while in the base, there are notes of ambergris, musk, leather, tobacco and fern.

Actually, what I feel when I wear this cologne are the green notes of the output with a floral touch, very well composed and balanced along with the woody notes at the base, such as patchouli, sandalwood and cedar. The hot touch of tobacco and leather is perfect and very masculine.

It’s a delightful scent that lasts for more than 7 hours on the skin and that, if compared to the modern fragrances, becomes clearly a classic for those who expect strength and power from a fragrance.
Try it and feel the powerful feeling of being wearing a Jaguar.

Jagaur classic is the best among the all jagaur fragrances. It is very masculine, bright sparkling wood spicy fragrance with moderate silage and longevity. Nice for mature men and casual wear.
I give it 7.5 out of 10.
