I try to keep a lot variety in this blog by reviewing different styles of fragrances for men. However, few things satisfy me more than wearing and reviewing a good old meat-and-potatoes powerhouse like this one.
I remember when Jordache designer jeans were all the rage back in the late 70s when I was a kid. Jordache Man cologne was released in 1983, well after the designer jeans fad had fizzled out, but it smells totally like a 70's styled power scent. This is a big macho aromatic fougere very much in the style of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, only a little stronger. It smells like Paco Rabanne with leather, though it doesn't smell green like Paco does. It's a simple fragrance: basically strong lavender bolstered by leather, sandalwood and oakmoss. It may not be unique, but it smells damn good, and that's good enough for me.
Again, this is very much a 70's styled cologne. Some will think it smells outdated and sleazy, and should be worn with a leisure suit at a disco. Obviously those people are not fans of powerhouse scents.
What matters to me is that Jordache Man is a frag with major balls, and it smells great. That's a lot more than I can say about Back to Black.
MY RATING: 8/10
Fragrance House: Jordache
