Jasmin Noir is a floral, woody fragrance with notes of green sap, gardenia, sambac jasmin absolute, satin almond, precious wood, licorice and tonca bean.
The fragrance is lovely but light and quiet. When you first spray it on, it is rather sweet. After a while, I could smell the jasmin note, which I expected to be quite strong considering it gives the name to the scent, but it is actually quite faint, at least on me. The dry down is woodsy and dark. Overall, the the scent is close to the skin smell and not really memorable.
The scent lasts all day but it is so light that no one can really smell it on me and even I have to press my nose to my skin to get a whiff of it.
I’m not very keen on the packaging. The heavy black glass bottle is too simple and common for my taste.
Overall, I don’t like this fragrance very much. The scent is longlasting and plesant but too soft and you can hardly smell it. It is quite expensive and I’d rather spent my money on something more original and stronger.
