Jaguar Mark II
This.....is very good. The opening is citric with bergamot and orange, with only a hint of the bitterness found in the opening of original Jaguar. Almost immediately, there's an entrance of patchouli and tonka. What's manifested is a warm and slightly bitter citrus with a powdery earthiness. It's a unique accord that smells like Geisha Noir injected with zesty tangerine.
There's a moderate wood note holding up the bottom. Sandal is listed, but it almost passes for a mahogany of sorts and accented with an ambery musk. As the patchouli fades, the tonka remains apparent alongside the woody musk and ebbing citric accord. This is a strangely attractive masculine off the beaten path and smells like nothing I have owned in the past.
It's sillage is very acceptable and longevity is robust enough for a noticeable 4-5 hour wearing with moderate sprays. This is an eclectic scent and very good addition to someones wardrobe. I can see this working well in all temperatures. Big thumbs up for Jaguar Mark II.
