Jubilation XXV by Amouage

Amouage Jubilation Xxv for Men


Jubilation XXV is an example of a true Masterpiece of the Niche fragrance industry!


Jubilation XXV has this remarkable fruitiness right out of the bottle. It’s wonderfully interesting as it forms a slightly sour-bitter accord with the coriander, cinnamon, clove, and a perfectly zesty orange citrus…

This initial accord is soon joined by amazing Amouage signature frankincense! The magical resin immediately gives the fruit accord some weight, pulling it back from sweetness and focusing on the spices… These are all very distinct notes, but they are singing in a five-part harmony voiced by angels! Into the heart with rose and more resin from guaiac-wood, honey, orchid, everything in balance with the frankincense front and center but never stealing the show.


As Jubilation XXV develops, more resinous, more opulent notes are added to the  mix – moss, cedarwood , and oud –  but they are tamed by musk, sweet myrrh, patchouli, and salty hints of ambergris… The unique maple syrupy/curry accord of immortelle flower reveals a hint of leather in the deep and gorgeous dry-down.


Jubilation XXV is a vibrant symphony of rich Regal notes and complex accords, it is divinely sumptuous, luscious and harmonious to perfection! It is also a bright, colorful, and happy incense fragrance, with a unique personality – it comes and goes, it plays hide and seek, but at all times it is well-behaved and never intrusive… The incense seems to come alive on your skin and reads your moods, receding into the background when not needed, stepping forward when required to soothe your soul. Jubilation XXV is the quintessential incense fragrance, bar-none. This one is a must have for fragrance lovers, a true MASTERPIECE!

Best Spring Fragrances

The spring is here and it is time to talk about best perfumes for spring. I wrote about this in the last years too so I’m trying to mention new perfumes here.

Best Spring Fragrances for Women

1.Miu Miu

Main Accords are:

Green, Floral, Rose, White Floral, and citrus

Promising Review: “This may be my favorite perfume ever! The floral opening is less than unique, but still lovely and well-blended. What does it for me is an interesting peppery-ness in the dry down that I can’t get enough of. This surely comes from the wood note. It’s def a unique element that may not be compatible with everyone’s tastes or body chemistry. I, however, am in love <3”

2.Gucci Bamboo

Main Accords are: White Floral, Citrus, Woody, Yellow floral, and Sweet

Promising Review: ” Love the scent, its fresh but mild. Perfect for spring day wear. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I don’t feel like it lasts more than a couple of hours. It’s worth it for the time you can smell it though!”

3. Christian Dior J’adore

Main Accords are: Floral, Fruity, White Floral, Sweet and aquatic

Promising Review: “Beautiful perfume, I find it fresh like being on a beach its not an old Lady perfume. I’m In love with it, I can’t stop smelling my wrist its such a lovely scent and Long lasting on me which is rare!”

4.Vince Camuto Bella

Main Accords are: Citrus, White Floral, Amber, Animalic and fresh spicy

Promising Review: ” Really like this! Instant tropical fruity piña colada in a bottle! And what a bottle! It’s definitely one of the prettiest perfume bottles I’ve come across.”

5. Tory Burch Absolu

Main Accords are: Woody, White floral, Soft spicy, floral, tuberose, green

Promising Review: “Fruity Berry opening. But more sophisticated and matured, not candy-like. Comes off to me as pears. sweet slightly medicinal finish, Long lasting, even in hot Florida weather.
Not bad, goes with the fashion line. Doesn’t really stand out for me.
Longevity: Long lasting
sillage: moderate.”

Best Spring Fragrances for Men

1.Chanel Allure Homme Sport

Main Accords are: Citrus, Aromatic, aldehydic, marine, fresh spicy and vanilla

Promising Review: “Everything about this one is great. Even now in the colder autumn weather I think it’s still appropriate because of the creamy tonka bean and vanilla. The go-to fragrance of all time!”

 2. Acqua Di Gio Profumo

Main Accords are: Aromatic, Marine, Fresh spicy, Balsamic, smoky and citrus
Promising Review: ” Very nice scent, similar to the original one, but while the original would be mostly used day time in summer, this one I would say day and night. Plus I see nothing wrong as time goes on things need to get updated otherwise would be dated and that’s what they did to the original.”

3. Paco Rabanne Invictus

Main Accords are: Citrus, Marine, Aromatic, Fresh Spicy, and woody

Promising Review: ” Though I detest the bottle, this guy is fantastic! Don’t throw this one out because of the cheesy marketing – it is a great fragrance. Take Acqua di Gio and Individuel and mix them and you get this. Great longevity – just a really great fragrance.”

4. Versace Dylan Blue

Main Accords are: Citrus, fresh spicy, musky, amber and balsamic
Promising Review: “I never wore cologne because I couldn’t find one I liked enough to wear consistently and purchase…I wear this everyday and can’t go a day without getting a compliment on this scent!”

5. Bvlgari Aqva Amara

Main Accords are: Citrus, aquatic, balsamic, fresh, white floral, and smoky

Promising Review: ” Its an aquatic citrusy masculine fragrance. It opens with a blast of citrus (I swear i can smell orange blossom in here). Its a compliment getter and suits i guess the casual wear in high summer heat. Its a sexy fragrance, appreciated by the people around you more than appreciated by the person who wore it. Masculine, not unisex.”
