Billy Jealousy makes great products. It's that simple. I've been a fan of BJ's (hehe, sorry couldn't resist) for some time now. I can't imagine shaving or washing my face with anything else.
However, when it comes to cologne I am very picky. I am not the kind of guy who has a cabinet full of dusty old bottles that I like to rotate. Instead, I prefer a nice "signature scent" that smells great and is unique enough that you don't smell it on everyone else.
I recently discovered that my old favorite brand of cologne, Dolce and Gabbana tests on animals. And since I personally not believe a beagle needs to be forced to drink cologne, or a cat needs to have it rubbed in their eyes, I threw out my bottles and sent a nasty letter to Proctor and Gamble (makers of D&G fragrances.) Unfortunately, this meant I needed to find a new smell.
I've been wanting to smell this product for some time, but living in Northern New England I was unable to locate it in a store. And the online retailers that I purchase from never seem to offer it as a checkout sample. So I traded some emails back and forth with the company's president (yes really, very responsive company) I decided to just go for it and buy it. The scent finally arrived and I could tell from the very first spray, this was for me. It's clean and fresh. It reminds me a nice summer vacation day. I've been wearing it every morning since. My wife is a fan too, except one minor problem. I commented to her recently that I noticed a couple female co-workers kind of sitting extra close to me in meetings and sort of leaning into me in hopes of smelling it. It's definitely intoxicating and the sort of smell you want to smell ever more. The design is simple and includes a few crisp notes like bergamot citrus, ivy, ginger accord, nutmeg and sandalwood. I would classify this as a fresh, green-citrus fragrance. While some scent experts might call this a summer/daytime scent, I plan on using it for everything since I personally thing that heavy oak/wood scents are a bit too grandpa and going way of of the doe-doe bird.
In short, another great Billy Jealousy hit. My next purchase is an small travel atomizer so I can have this scent in my travel bag for work.
My profile (since this is important in reading scent reviews) - A 32 year old, married, Supply Chain/Operations Manager for a billion dollar BioTech corporation. I typically like fresh scents and men's products from hip and trendy companies that do not test on animals.
