I admit I was drawn to this brand because of the stunning packaging. There was something classic and sophisticated about it. Plus their fragrances were described in a moody and slightly masculine way. At a display I sniffed all the offerings but was immediately drawn to Jazz Club – evoking the ambiance of a Brooklyn jazz club, being both moody and exhilarating.
The bottle, which you’d be proud to display on your vanity, is inspired by classic apothecary jar with a cotton label. The labelling also will remind you of the clothing line labeling also by Maison Margiela if you are familiar.
Copper, leather, liquor and tobacco notes are all clearly Jazz Club inspired. A more detailed summary of notes: Pink Pepper, Primofiore Lemon, Neroli Oil, Rum Absolute, Clary Sage Oil, Java Vetiver Oil, Tobacco Leaf Absolute, Vanilla Bean, Styrax Resin.
