Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent, Jazz is as thrilling and original as the musical art form for which it is named. The cologne, released in 1988, is a refreshing blend of greens and spices.
The top notes are a complex mix of artemisia, nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, lavender, basil, cardamom, and bergamot. The unique ingredients swirl together for a warm profile brightened by citrus and green notes. The middle notes are distinctly floral, incorporating iris, carnation, jasmine, and geranium. Together, the delicate scents make for an intoxicating experience. Sandalwood, amber, tonka bean, oakmoss, musk, and cedar are the strong base notes, enjoying a twist of smoky tobacco.
