Kokorico by Night Fragrance Reviews

Hahahaha, it's arrived now, so the experience is enough fresh like Kokorico by night. I think it's a joke that it called "night". Maybe just my nose but I barely smell this scent. It's similar to the older brother but so much lighter, fresher, watered down. The original Kokorico is the night version IMHO, and this is the everyday's (maybe summer and spring) version:D
I found weak the old Kokorico, but after smelling By night, I changed my mind, the older is much more dense and stronger, more recognizable. Night is not sweeter, just the bitter note toned down. Anyway, the scent is not bad at all, but not enough unique and intense for my taste
Ohh, the bottle is beautiful, so it remains in my collection:D

I actually don't get why people dislike this so much. I never tried this because of the trash people threw at it and I honestly don't know why I listened to that.

A couple of weeks ago I tried this in a Douglas store, I tried multiple scents but when I sprayed this on a piece of paper I was like "WTF, this is really good". And that day I told myself not to listen to the trash people throw at certain scents and try them at least.

So a couple of days ago I ended up buying not one, but two bottles of this, best buy in a while to be honest.

This one is really great for nights out. And I must say that it has that darker vibe which CK One Shock has, although they are different. I feel like they are some distant relatives.

Anyway, if you want a mysterious scent, a bit more on the serious side, for your nights out, check this one out. Will do the trick.

I want to say first that I’m not familiar with Jean Paul Gaultier, and I have never worn any of his fragrances before now. I’ve never tried the original Kokorico flanker, which sounds very dry and interesting, but when I heard Kokorico by NIGHT features cocoa and rhubarb together, I HAD to sample. (I won’t take time to explain my fascination with that tart smell of rhubarb, I don’t really understand it myself. All I know is, to me, it smells healthy.) But Kokorico by Night, as somebody else already said, smells like La Nuit by YSL. After wearing for awhile, off-and-on for a few days, on skin AND clothes, I have to agree. And I have decided Kokorico by Night isn’t unique enough or fascinating enough to hold my interest. That nice, tart rhubarb opening doesn’t last through drydown. Honestly, KbN reminds me TOO much of YSL La Nuit, which I consider headache-inducing. Nothing bad about KbN, but nothing special, either.

Honestly i'm shocked at the hate towards this fragrance! There are far worse scents than this but they get better grades and reviews!
Looks like the trend lately is to hate anything stamped "Jean Paul Gaultier", regardless of the actual quality of the juice, and as usual, many jump on the bandwagon of "bashing JPG frags". Is it because of Le male and its 25486321 flankers? the tacky bottle? the gaudy JPG designs? I don't know but this is sad. REALLY sad. How can someone interested in parfumes objectively say THIS is the worst thing ever??? Seriously?
Is it the best? No.
Is it the worst (even among the worst ever?) Hell No.
But it's a nice AND above average perfume.
This fragrance is original in its way, quite different, I can understand some won't enjoy it, but calling it THE WORST? that's just gratuituous bashing IMHO !
I haven't tested the original, and got a bottle of this fragrance (50 ml) for 19 euros at Sephora (well, not really a good sign for its future I'm afraid this is going to be discontinued soon).
The opening is interesting. I had never smelled rhubarb in a fragrance before, but I can definitly detect it, a natural-smelling rhubarb on the opening, slightly citric and sweet. It lasts for about 30 min, then comes the delicious cocoa + patchouli combo, which reminds me a bit of a younger brother of l'Instant Extreme from Guerlain. I prefer this one to LIEDG actually, both scent-wise (in the heart + drydown notes) and perfomance wise. Kokorico by Night is a performance beast, a good choice as a clubbing scent. This lasts about 8 hours on me, and even after a whole evening of frenetic clubbing I could smell it on me in the morning through my hangover lol.
Honestly, if you're looking for an easy, simple yet different going-out gourmand for mid-season, this will do the job, especially among the young crowd (below 30). Its apparently on sale everywhere now. If you can grab a bottle at a low price as I did, go ahead. It's definitly worth it. Don't rely on the bad reputation on fragrantica, sample it for yourself an mTHEN make up your mind. Personally I enjoy it, it doesnt "wow me", but I'd still give it a 7/10.

PS : update - the drydown is really the best part. And I'm stepping out of the shower as I'm typing this... I still can smell this bad boy on my arm! wow!

Yes, Endymion, maybe you're right, I am still wearing them off-and-on to see if I notice the differences. But you yourself said Kokorico by Night "opening has the same touch as Xeryus Rouge". So at one time, you must have thought they were similar?

I have both Kokorico Night and Xeryus Rouge and don't find ANY similarities between them. I can't comprehened how anyone can find them similar at all? Just tested them side by side, absolutely different scents IMHO.

Kokorico by Night reminds me SO much of Givenchy Xeryus Rouge. In fact, I have worn both off-and-on for the past couple of days, and I still find them amazingly similar. A few more wearings should let me know which I prefer, if either. A fascinating fragrance, for sure. As soon as I am able to wrap my nose around this better, I will post a REAL review. As deathpill said, I like rhubarb... but it doesn't work here. Personally, as a rhubarb "freak", I am still trying to decide if that cocoa and rhubarb blend well enough to consider Kokorico by Night a favorite.

xoxoMyke and the absolutist gave some great accounts of this fragrance. I’m with them both.

Like xoxoMyke, I get patchouli in this too. I was one of the notes I mentally flagged the first time I wore this fragrance. I was surprised to see that patchouli wasn’t one of the notes they used in KN.

I am a fig fiend. I love just about every fragrance that I’ve ever smelled containing fig, particularly fig leaf. I think fig leaf has a beautifully green, outdoorsy – sweet & sour smell. It’s really sharp, and it is a great scent to play against on the fragrance canvas because it responds so well to being mixed with base scents. KN is a beautiful example of that. I must say that I think the original Kokorico is also excellent, however this is my favorite of the two.

I wear this one for me. My wife likes even if she can’t find the words. She’s “normal” and either likes a scent or doesn’t. She doesn’t sit around all geekified like all of us trying to analyze what’s going into her nose.

And WTH? Who wouldn’t want this funky bottle in their collection? It’s awesome. Cheers.

Kokorico By Night is a wonderfully different fragrance and garners so many compliments!

It starts off with a tart and slightly citric freshness (bergamot + rhubarb combo) but quickly transforms into a very sweet "red fruit" accord. It is so delicious!

While patchouli is not listed, I absolutely smell a very spicy earthy patchouli. The earthy vibe is definitely from the fig, but I smell a spicy sharp patchouli. That's the magic of modern fragrances - the notes listed (and not listed) can create and mimic other scents/notes (accords). The cacao is definitely there with its soft roundness riding the wave of an earthy, spicy patchouli accord. The tonka bean in the basenotes just makes By Night all the better.

I can honestly say I've never smelled anything like it!

The first night I wore this, I had a woman come to my group of friends and ask who smelled so good. When she discovered it was me, she pulled out her phone and looked up Kokorico By Night on Amazon to buy it for her husband. I was flattered to say the least! This stuff rocks!

I'm sure it's getting discontinued along with the original Kokorico as it sells for pennies now (at least in Hungary).

Put two of the greatest noses of the last twenty years together, give them a sizable budget and free creative reign from a house that was finally ready to emerge beyond the Le Male staple cash cow and endless flankers. Jean Paul Gaultier was searching for a new and unique stamp on the men's fragrance industry and you get this and the original Kokorico as their answer. Loathed and hated by the popular masses, many of whom never actually smelled the perfume beyond the top notes of the original Kokorico and based their negativity on the flashy packaging and the fact Kokorico wasn't Le Male part deux.
This one is dark and gourmandish with a creamy soda fountain like feel. The cocoa dominates with the fruity rhubarb and leafy fig leaf to give a very sweet and spicy feel when combined with a very creamy and organic tonka bean note that acts much like the coffee in the A Men series, giving it a strong base from which to push the other notes forward while not allowing the overall composition to get too light or soft. All this is incredibly well done here, with the embellishment of light, soft woods in the dry down but with the cocoa and rhubarb stealing the show for much of the stretch run.
Fantastically modern and original, an artistic endeavor that though more commercial than the original Kokorico, is no less creative in its blending, it's just less shocking and aggressive. Longevity is very good at between 7-10 hours with moderate sillage well into the dry down. A real gem of an oriental for men looking for a bit more daring and dark in their fragrance who want to be project a certain rugged individualism and not the standard run-of-the-mill oriental.

Wearing this for just one day and it reminds me of a variation of A*Men, and it's not a bad thing. I find this much more appealing to me than the original Kokorico because the original smells a little bitter. But this could possibly be something I'd see myself wear more often while A*Men I just can't wear it all the time.

A clubbing scent for those who don't like clubbing scents? Certainly gives me that vibe. I'll love it when I wear it but being a metalhead at heart it won't probably be often.

I prefer this to the original; When I tried it had a rich(and not totally unpleasant) oil paint vibe I don't think I could have gotten used to.

I've got the impression that the original Kokorico was like a concept-car and this is the production version. It's a more "likeable", less radical and an overall more commercial version of it. While it might lack the original's "gullwing doors" and raw creativity it's still one of the best night-out releases of the last few years. Easily an 8 out of 10.

While I don't think it's impossible to dislike it I do wonder if most of the people who downvoted it actually bothered to give it a try.


Edit: Every single time I wear it I get an unsolicited compliment. Make no mistake, it's Kokorico done right. Do yourself a favor and at least sample this fantastic scent !

I'm partially disappointed. This is a tad sweeter and fruitier than original Kokorico, maybe a bit softer too.
IMHO the opening has the same touch as Xeryus Rouge has, that fruity sweet scent, but the whole fragrance is not that fresh at all.
This lacks the brutality of the original, less unique.

By night should have been out there for a long time but I just discovered it recently in stores. The original version has already been toned down and this one is similar.

Actually I'm more drawn to the night version than to the original, which might be due to its tonka note.

It's well done but maybe a little bit weaker than the original.

When I first tried this I was intrigued but not completely sold. But the fragrance stayed with me and I was certain I wanted to give it another try. I bought a bottle and I really started to love it al lot! I like the warm cherries, dark chocolate and tobacco. And I love the soapy smell after an hour or so. So I am completely sold by this fragrance during cold winter month, when I want a comfortable warm and cosy feeling, this is it. I like its not leather smell and not citrus. I really can recommend it, at least try!

Not sure about all the hate on this one... Usually my clubbing scent and have gotten many compliments with this one. Projection and longevity great after a long night clubbing still noticeable by the person your sleeping next to. Smell is perhaps too heavy at the start but the dry down is a sweet spicy unique smell that is a real killer in my opinion. i have been very happy with this, all just preference i guess.

It's warmer, sweet and less earthy than the original Kokorico. I find the rhubarb note interesting, but overall I prefer the original. The sweet and sour accords just don't blend well for me and come off a bit discordant.

warm.. sensual.. wintry..starts off hard and warms down beautifully..woody spicy sweetish in a masculine way..a clubbing night out sexy perfume ..its distinctive smokey..its not that chocolaty not overwhelmingly so anyway..its a sultry scent perfect for a date or retraction... it reminds me of L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme..its surprisingly old school with a modern twist..its delicious you almost want to sniff it until you eat it ...its a confident... independent scent..a classy masculine gentleman s perfume..

Where the original reminded us of L'Instant pour Homme, this one is terrible and nauseating. It is bitter and sweet at the same time. BPI (Shiseido) I know you planned a whole new ad campaign for this one, but really don't bother... just let it die.

@armaniboy: Thanx for the information :) The bottle and the name is so disappointing that I was sure, it's a fake... (although I really like the original bottle).
They could have come up with a better name, anything that is not so cheap, and a nicer bottle (like in deep purple or deep brown, or blue).
