The most appropriately named perfume ever...people react to this scent as I imagine people would react to suddenly coming face to face with a real life jungle elephant...they either run screaming or stand in heartfelt awe :)
Heartfelt awe for me all the way!
The elephant wont hide from you...How feint is your heart....?
Too much spice
by Alishia on May 5, 2016
I wanted to love this, because I'm in love with Kenzo. All of their perfumes last forever and a day. That being said, if this didn't contain spice it would smell fabulous, but the chemistry isn't there. I'd recommend you try this, but only if you're brave!
Unfortunately not for me

Creamy cloves, that was all I got. Like the previous reviewer I couldn't stand more than 15 minutes due to the cloying, creamy oddness. I usually love spicy orientals, but this was none of that.
Definitely NOT for me

Strong and long lasting. Unfortunately that was a bad combination for me with this scent. I love oriental and musks, but this was about as wrong as it could get on my skin. Gave me a headache very quickly, and just rinsing it off wouldn't work- I had to shower. Sweet notes too cloying and and spice too sharp. Maybe my sample was off... based on description I should have LOVED this one. I wanted to... but couldn't even stand to wear it for more than 15 minutes.
Spicy and Strong!

The cloves and vanilla really stand out for me with this fragrance which does last a long time on the skin. Unfortunately this one doesn't work with my skin chemistry but for those who love sweet and spicy fragrances this is a good pick!
Fruit and spice

From reading reviews, I.was expecting a vintage-Opium style spice bomb. Instead I got a lot of plummy, raisin-y fruit, cooked with spices. Very good longevity.
Christmas, Thanksgiving, Spiced Candles, Chai Tea

I love this! The name "L'elephant" did nothing to prepare me for this warm, decidedly autumnal/wintry scent that smells like the holidays and wonderful times with loved ones.
For those who don't like spice in their perfumes, stay clear of this one. It is unmitigated spice all the way. Unapologetic and brash. But comforting and beautiful too.
Strong Spicy Oriental
by Anyushka on Jan 13, 2016
For years now I have been looking for a nice wearable spicy oriental that is not just suitable for the dark of night in the dead of winter. Kenzo Jungle Elephant fits the bill nicely. It has all the lovely stuff in it like clove and cummin etc. that some reviewer might refer to als 'old fashioned' or 'old lady' scent but Jungle Elephant is imo a spicy oriental with a modern vibe that is very suitable for this day and age, even though it's not a new fragrance. It is a strong that scent that should be applied with caution.

Too strong. not for the headache prone.

If you have been in a Middle Eastern or an Indian spice market you have had the experience of something similar to this fragrance. It is a powerful combination of spices, with cloves leading the way, followed by cumin, cardamom, caraway and perhaps cinammom. Eventually smoky woods and vanilla softens the spices. Jungle is very bold; a strong, oriental, for women over 25. and for the colder weather. Although it has an elusive sweetness, it may be worn by a man.
