So Not Me: Boucheron Jaipur Homme, and a giveaway.

JaipurSome 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. 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…

    Hi Tom, this does sound interesting to try. I think Tom Ford Noir Extreme is another that might be better on women and I even prefer it to Noir for Femme, despite being a femme. I always miss you when you’re ill.

    Hi, My son enjoys a nice fragrance and he dresses the part… Just in case it wouldn’t fit him, his mother, loves fragrance!
    Many thanks to you, Cindi

    I’d love to try this. Sounds kinda like me, actually. And if not, I have a tall handsome cousin whom it truly will suit. Thanks, Tom.

    I love Jaipur…I usually spray a little on if I see it at a counter and a few people have complimented me on it. I agree, it’s unusually sweet and powdery for a men’s fragrance!

  • So in need of a whiff of something new…castoffs welcome.
