Jordan by Michael Jordan

Mandarin, White Ivy, Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Sage.
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.

This hit the shelves in the year 2000 and possesses that commonality inherent in aquatic/ozonic/marine fragrances targeted toward the youthful male segment. Yes, it's marketing and yes, the suits and ties do it to death. There are some of these releases however that find a way to rise above the intentions and accomplish a little something. They succeed, not so much as a good fragrance, but by not being as tedious or banal when compared to the rest of the pack.

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.

Now, do I like to wear Jordan? Yes, I do and I also enjoy the casualness of it in general. This isn't frivolous, exciting, serious, happy or bold. It just is. I should mention that, to me, there's versatility in a scent such as this. There's no statement to be made here except to smell a bit better than you would if you chose to wear nothing at all.

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.
