Amouage Jubilation 25 Woman Eau de Parfum Spray is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nickie from Patience will be rewarded It's taken me several attempts to get on board with Jubilation. The opening I found crass and harsh; I really didn't understand what it was trying to say. To an extent the same is still true, but I'm wiser now and know that on my skin it takes a good hour to quieten down and formulate its words. After the unpromising start I find it eloquent and sophisticated. It becomes demure and sweet and, to some extent, uplifting. It is now one of my all-time favourite scents. It doesn't have the gung-ho power I find in, say, Epic, nor the staying power: three squirts and that'll last around 7 hours with moderate to soft silage. That doesn't phase me; if the first hour's experience were stretched to 2 or 3, I wouldn't be able to hack it. Patience is what's needed to experience the joys of Jubilation. I've learned that now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnneCat from Gorgeous It's a chypre, but it's spicy, and flowery with ylang ylang and totally gorgeous. It has taken me a while to come around to this (I wear a lot of Chanel 19 vintage, Miss Dior vintage and Mitsouko vintage), but I finally succumbed to the test EDP that Amouage gave me (I've had it for two years) and took the plunge. I have been wearing it every day ever since. It's very grown up, slightly old-fashioned in a grand way and it has real oakmoss!!!! Totally delicious, and my bedroom/bathroom always smell good too, as do my winter coats! The packaging is special too - really pretty bottle, very nicely boxed. My only beef is that the lid falls off very easily - it needs a magnet like the wonderful Chanel Exclusifs bottles have - I'm forever dropping it and it's glass so lucky it's onto carpet!
