Capsule Parfums Jaunt EDP Perfume Review

Capsule Jaunt perfume

Capsule is a rather new line of perfumes that is marketed to “urban” types that I assume are on-the-go. The bottles are 1/2 oz and retail for under $40. This makes them easy to travel with and practically impulse buys!

The story/inspiration behind Jaunt is rather esoteric, something about a crossing of spiritual paths and journeys and stuff. To me this is a very nostalgic scent reminding of grandpa’s pipe tobacco and old hope chests stored away in the attic. It’s possible that your taking a spiritual journey at grandma’s…weirder things have happened. Jaunt opens as a musky vanilla and Play-Doh benzoin. It reminds me of vanilla pods and cherry pipe tobacco. It’s a little smoky, sweet and sightly burnt. It dries down to a very boozy vanilla tobacco housed in a dusty cedar hope chest.

Notes listed include black vanilla pods, black orchid, silken rose, ylang ylang, tobacco, atlas cedar and tamboti wood.

Give Jaunt a try if you like sweet, smoky fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Sula Vanilla Blossom, Cartier Delices EDP, Agonist Black Amber, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and/or Costamor Tabacca. This is a completely unisex fragrance that could be nice for fall/winter.

Projection and longevity are average.

The 1/2 oz spray retails for $38 at Beautyhabit.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONBoozy pipe tobacco and hope chests. There are lots of fragrances out there that smell smoky and sweet. This isn’t a remarkable fragrance but it smells good. Think of it like a poor perfumista’s Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Tempting, huh?

  1. It’s tempting when you describe it. It’s so un-tempting based on the marketing copy on BeautyHabit that I couldn’t even finish reading the description of the first one in order to get down the page to Jaunt. I hope you’ll consider helping me out by reviewing the others as well. I really appreciate a review of an inexpensive and easy-to-find scent.

    1. Haha, I know! That first description on the site is nauseating! And there’s one about a lap dance. I couldn’t finish reading that one. Also, some of the adjectives used with the notes are hilarious such as “frosted”.

      I haven’t tried them all yet, just a few. I really like Jaunt but I tend to like sweet tobacco fragrances (especially in the winter). One is super sweet like cotton candy (the lap dance one, it’s like a strip club at the circus). And there is one that is a nice incense (cant’ remember the name). I will review them.

      The packaging is pretty nice, sleek and portable. And I do wish more companies would catch on that we would like smaller bottles at reasonable prices. Since I don’t have a signature scent, a 15ml bottle is perfect for me. I don’t want 100 ml!

      1. Well, I tend to like sweet tobacco fragrance[s], too. I only know one, Tabac Aurea, and it slays me. Cotton candy doesn’t even smell good when I’m eating it. I do eat it at the circus. Now strip circus reminds me of a small-town circus I saw once in France. I was a teenager and I couldn’t believe they let me in.

        I honestly did not get past whatever biker bs they were hawking to discover the small size of the bottle. I guess that would explain the low-seeimg price. Ah, well, I continue to wish for reasonably priced fantastic perfume. In the mean time, I agree with you that a reasonably sized bottle is a great place to start.

        1. I love the versatility of tobacco in fragrances and it’s a note worth exploring.

          Not a fan of cotton candy smells personally but there seem to be people that like it.

          A hoochie coochie show? 😉

          When I think of the phrase “biker babe”, I think of someone that I don’t want to be. I realize that today lots of people own a bike and are hobbyist but I think rough, tough biker gang via exploitation films of the 1960s and I think, yep, I don’t want to be that.

  2. These sound very good. Love the smaller size. And the price point. I don’t think I need the Jaunt. I already have TV and the Costamer and Chergui and Tabac Aurea and MCMC Hunter. But the others sound well worth trying. Have to wonder about the ad copy. And not just on these. Where do they get these? Have everyone take a shot at the magnetic poetry in the break room? I never noticed a marketing class in college that was titled “Copy writing for the obtuse and absurd” or maybe it was an advanced creative writing class “Ad copy for Perfume advertising: the fanciful and utterly ridiculous”.

    And yes-keep up the search for the smaller size. I can have so many more with the little size.

    1. So, I’m trying to think of other industries that come across equally as obtuse and absurd. I would say wine but wine copy has changed greatly over the past 10 years. Artisanal liquors and spirits usually aren’t ridiculous. I have seen some silly bitters copy but it was nothing in comparison to what we see in fragrance stuff. They much teach this special skill at FIT only.

      I think more and more brands are catching on to the fact that the fragronerds want smaller sizes. – And if you already own those tobaccos, no need for this one. It would be redundant in your collection.
