I've just purchased a bottle on ebay... Blind buy... What to expect? Anyone?
It seems It was called J.J. Coca for men and It's(was) under cofinluxe.

I have owned a bottle of this from the early 80s. A nice cheapie - spicy aromatic scent with a pretty prominent nutmeg note.

When you receive it, please return with your thoughts about it. :smiley:

Hi hednic, finally received it!

You're right about it being a nice spicy aromatic fragrance. Anise and lavender were the first notes I smelled just after spraying it but I don't detect so much nutmeg, maybe due to the fact It's surrounded by old school notes that results in a bright talcum/powdery formal smell. Oakmoss definetely present!
After all, I smell something in the same vibe of Calvin by calvin klein, replacing chamomile for anise, just less dense, weaker and more wearable (considering It's summer here right now and was only able to use it because, at the office , there's air conditioning).
I don't know its manufactoring date, but It seems to be something made just after Calvin, and as you said, early 80s... Good for those who enjoy powdery fragrances as Van Cleef & Arpels, Habit Rouge etc. although Coca is lighter, of course.
It was a cheapie when came out, but compared to the recent designers offerings, It seems richer and I wouldn't be surprised if its formula wasn't more expensive than the launching designers ones.

Glad to hear you received it and that you found it pleasant! :smiley:
