La Collection Jazz Fragrance Reviews


this bears no resemblance to what it once was,if i strain i can smell the old jazz about a thousand miles away or it appears that far away.if i wasn't so tight i would throw it away.
it will end its day as a decoration on my dressing table exposed to light whilst the decent fragrances are in a dark place and protected


I am really surprised that lavender, leather and sandalwood are not listed among the notes. For me they are crucial to the overall charm of this fragrance. Anyway Jazz is a splendid fougere but a bit too thin for my tastes. That's the only reason i would not call it a masterpiece.


Either this reformulation is off the mark or or my memory is because this seems different to the original. When I say 'different' I don't mean vastly but after a couple of wears I'm starting to perceive those differences.
I did have Jazz many years ago and enjoyed it but this new version is amazing. Well maybe that's going a bit OTT or perhaps just appealing to a fickle taste fad I have at the moment for masculine aromatics? Anyway... I love this! The corriander and geranium are obvious but I don't get any of that minty vibe from the original formula. (I'm not getting confused with Live Jazz honest.) It's a herbal, refreshing brew of patchouli and cypress but surely with some citrus top notes...No?
Never sharp and very classy stuff kinda reminds of RL Safari (another thing the original didn't do!) but less obvious. This is a top scent and good lasting power too, can't fault it I'd rather smell like this than many newer releases.


This one is just so wonderful! ♡


It's so funny, I like this version of Jazz yet I don't really like the original Jazz...

A close to the skin, short lived, 80's barber shop frag which may appeal to the lovers of classic frags..

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0-5 mins - nothing much, alcohol and little aroma

5 mins - 30 mins - 1 foot projection. This is quite clearly not a new fragrance as it smells so similar to 80's frags. It is a dated barber shop smell with a little hint of youthness which soon evaporates. Surely if you are to re-invent a dated scent then you would have a modern day feel with a hint of the old scent to link the two together. This does not. Why not offer a modern day barber shop smell, such as Prada Homme Intense has done, and make it smell a bit like the original Jazz?

30 mins - 2.5 hours - 3 inch projetion, linear scent

2.5 hours -4 hours - Close to skin, barely 0.5 inch projection. No projection thereafter but you can still smell it on the skin.

For me this is nothing new or different. Lovers of classics may take a different view however?

The cool, contemporay bottle leads to the feeling of mutton dressed as lamb

Sorry, not for me
