Jordan by Michael Jordan
White Nutmeg, Black Pepper, Jasmine, Cardamom.
Musk, Sandalwood, Hardwood.
Slowly but surely, I seem to be accumulating the Michael Jordan line of fragrances. It's not by design, but rather an economical opportunity when I land in a TJ Maxx or Ross. Most have been a pleasant surprise and while they're not great by any stretch, this is yet another that works fairly well as a work frag that you can spray with abandon and not worry about it. Well, maybe not with abandon as that would be inconsiderate, but this one can be applied heavier than normal and still be tight.
I know that's not much of a compliment or even incentive to buy, but Jordan is a decent choice, considering the price point, if one is looking for a spicy, pseudo aquatic that evolves into the predictable, but acceptable musky woods we have come to expect. It's a bit mundane, but still a pleasant, if uneventful wear. A rather nice choice if you want to smell nice, a bit spicy and don't want to turn heads. This works well in the office or other close quarter situations.
Sillage is average and longevity is approximately 3-4 hours on my skin before I reapply. As innocuous as Jordan really is, a thumbs up from Aromi is warranted just because. As always, a sample wear is highly recommended.
