Some things just aren’t me. Boucheron fragrances tend to fill that bill. I received a sample of Jaipur Homme with a fragrance purchase (I think from Barney’s) and I have been giving it a whirl this week. Here is the blurb from Fragrancenet:
“Jaipur Homme, a rich fragrance with sensuous, spicy notes. Fresh top notes and a spicy harmony, softened by an intense and woody signature.a bold and contemporary architectural bottle containing an intense, sophisticated fragrance concentration”
For me, it’s just a little too much, with it’s citrus-sweet opening though it’s heavy middle to it’s powdery finish. I actually think it would be better on a female than on a male, or that the man wearing it would have be very well dressed to carry it off.
Which I am not.
Fragrancenet.com sells it at about $35 for 3.4 ML, which makes it an excellent buy. My sample was a gift with purchase.
If you live in the continental US and would like to enter the draw to receive my sample, please say so in the comments. Shamelessly telling me how clever and amusing I am will not affect your chances of winning, but would be nice…
