Latest Reviews of Jubilation XXV Man

This fragrance presents a sour element, possibly attributed to the combination of olibanum and other notes. It doesn't possess a strong or animalic oud presence, as any potential fecal or skanky nuances are well masked by the abundance of other notes. The scent is characterized by a complex composition, making it difficult to precisely describe. In essence, it offers a sour woody aroma with a touch of fruity sweetness. Considering its unique characteristics, the fragrance receives a rating of 3 out of 5.

Beautifully restrained if not balanced fruity honey and oud with a hint of smokiness. I love this in the fall winter months as it allows overspraying without huge radiation. Lasts all day long as this comfort layer.
On a separate but related note, ZARA X Jo Malone Ebony Wood is in this vein, a lovely fragrance in its own right - in fact the Tobacco Collection (Rich Warm Addictive; Unexpected Fresh & Spicy; Intense Dark Exclusive) seem to be based on this, all three being like flankers with individual notes explored.

Amouage came with a mission statement of combining Western and Middle Eastern perfume traditions. Jub XXV for men is perhaps the best realization of that. Very clever product positioning from Amouage had a middle Eastern clientele buying into its European refinement whilst in tandem the Europeans bought into the exoticism and quality of raw materials. The quality of this scent suggests this is not just marketing but an actually realized and well executed ambition.

Jubilation is a spot on name - this is a special occasion scent with something quite biblical about its profile - picture the 3 wise men carrying their precious gifts across the clear skies of a still desert. A scent big enough and classy enough for special occasions without being at all obnoxious or attention seeking.

Opening with fresh berries (blackcurrants / redcurrants) and dried fruits (dates / sultanas) and incense. The mid notes are very earthy but not too dirty (patchoulli), mildly spicy (cinnamon), resinous (labdanum) and eventually woody (santal / cedar).

Yes there is a subtle undertone of oud - but this is a 2007 oud - very far removed from the synthetic harsh oud's we have come to expect in 2022. Primarily this is a patchouli scent with a stickyness and sweet density - almost like a luxury reworking of Mugler's A*men with elements of Angel.

Overall; mission brief thoroughly accomplished and exceeded by master of his art Bertrand Duchafour. It may not be my everyday reach or even something that speaks to me directly but the quality and refinement shine through 88/100

By far the best perfume I have smelled or put on. Very strong notes and lasts a long time. And the older it is, the better it seems to smell! I bought a bottle back in 2009 and I still keep it, even though it has a tiny amount, to occasionally just smell it

Tragically marvelous...

The most wonderful, richly exquisite, round & inviting incense fragrance I've ever tried; yet it performs terribly on my skin. Which is par for the incense course on me... Either my climate or my skin just eats this stuff within minutes, as it does with Mugler B*Men, Burberry London, Taliban Flower, etc.

I should move to a drier climate so that this works on me, that's how great this juice is!

Arguably the best Amouage ever created and a remarkably easy-to-wear frankincense.

Frankincense (incense) is not an easy note to wear. In its pure form it can come across as astringent, lemony or even urea-like. Of course, incense of any kind is not meant to be applied to skin; instead, it is burned to give off its enchanting, unique aroma. Amouage hit the bull's eye with this creation though.

Jubilation XXV Man (not to be confused with Jubilation 25, which is another scent by Amouage marketed to women), is a complex scent, built around frankincense and wrapped in a fougere accord. It does not smell harsh or synthetic, yet is not your average, crowd-pleasing, designer scent.

Jubilation XXV opens with a unique accord of berries, supported by a delicate orange and davana (both are barely discernible notes). This aspect appeared more authentic and bolder in older bottles; however, it does not last very long. The frankincense begins to project from the get go and constitutes the backbone structure of the entire scent. As the scent progresses, a gentle sweetness emerges, which could either be the opoponax or 'honey' note. Interestingly, the note pyramid claims an oud note, but I cannot detect it.

From a distance, Jubilation XXV turns a few heads (including your own!), as the curiosity to get a whiff of "that smell" quietly calls for your attention. The incense here invokes memories of an Eastern or oriental church somewhat, but the complex blend make it quite wearable. The gentle sweetness removes any perceived harshness from the incense and comes across as calming or even meditative. It won't fill a room with its projection (it was never intended to), but it projects remarkably well and easily lasts a full day on skin and clothes, if not longer. Just be sure to stick with fewer sprays, otherwise it can become a bit of an olfactory mess. One or two sprays at most.

The most recent bottles begin with less than average projection and longevity, but once they've been used a bit and allowed to mature over time, they do improve dramatically. The non-magnetic cap bottles would last past 12 hours and even survive showers. Current bottles are very long lasting though; just be sure to purchase a Made in Oman version.

Blackberries dipped in dark honey and coated in Omani frankincense. Oud that resembles an old church pew with sweet myrrh burning in the background. Smoky guaiac wood accented by dark woody patchouli. A pinch of sweet orange with warm cinnamon. Powdery rose with smooth amber. Shades of balsamic myrrh and spicy bay leaf.

This fragrance has so much depth and character. Despite the darkness in this scent, there is a bit of light that shines through it, like a beam of sunlight shining through the colored mosaic windows of a church.

This is a masterpiece of a fragrance and worth every penny. The depth and character in this fragrance are astounding and transport you to a place of comfort. A warm embracing hug of exquisite materials and craftsmanship

I wouldn't wear this. It's simply too feminine. Complex yes, many notes of a range of incenses, and flowery. Would be ideal for a priest, a museum curator, or someone who deals in antiquities.

This is for me the best fragrance around the world! Unfortunately very expensive but what a great fragrance!
It is smoky, woody, musky and in the same time spicy. It reminds le the old school fragrance of seventy's gentlemen.

Jubilation XXV lives up to the hype. Up front is a dark, fruity top that I love immediately. I'm a sucker for blackberry, and this is a deep, dark blackberry that reminds me of a dark cassis - jammy and potent. If that's all there was here, I'd love it.

But that just gets this fragrance started. Behind the dark berries there is sweet incense and labdanum that brings a beautiful amber accord. And as it all begins to dry down, up comes honey, a sweet tinge of patchouli, and sweet, fresh woods to surround those dark berries and incense. Florals dip in and dip out as well, never staying long enough to overshadow the dark rich berries and sweet crisp woods.

In its later stages, different woods start shining through, going from fresh and sweet to dark and oudy - and the scent becomes musky and mysterious.

From beginning to finish, this is a rich, opulent scent, with notes that take turns making themselves known, and all of them working together beautifully. I don't throw the word 'masterpiece' around often, but this is a masterpiece.

This is the pinacle of genius from both Amouage and Bertrand Duchaufour. It is a scent that gives the impression of being massive and powerful, but it does not achieve this by being simply loud and showy but by a calm and intense complexity, and what seems to be an endless opening up of new elements, almost like a fractal spice market. I am not given to exaggeration and I rarely find that scents live up to their reputation, but Jubilation XXV does... and then some.
