Like jasmine on moonless night. this is not an indolic jasmine. this is a light, sweet jasmine,not a white floral bomb but more of a whisper with a well-balanced base of musk and woods that never overpowers.it's a simple, uncomplicated scent but comforting and elegantly beautiful.lush,creamy, sensuous and exciting.a soft nighttime jasmine with a slight nuttiness, that isn't overly complex and is both wearable and elegant.the woodes add a touch of subdued class to the feminine florals. could be unisex if not for that feminine jasmine.true jasmine lovers,come hither.

This had so much potential - a quality, Hermes-style woody floral. But not - instead you get a strangely raunchy jasmine accord with weird, pissy undertones and a ton of indole.

The heart of the scent is a nice, quiet jasmine with a touch of woodiness...more sandalwood synthetic than cedar, but not terrible.

Now here's where things go very wrong. The drydown is a bare, synthetic mess. For the price of this thing, that's completely unacceptable and lazy.

Maybe next time don't release 5 scents at the same time.

At first: a clear, unfussy, bell-like jasmine, not screechy, not sharp, its edges rounded off with soft woods. Simple! Serene! Elegant! Not going to rock anybody's world, but enjoyable to smell and easy to wear. Perhaps the jasmine I've been searching for...?

After 6 hours: mothballs.

Initially I am getting more of the jasmine. Quite a fresh jasmine, at times with components of stems, wood, and undertones of an nigh waxy-indolic characteristics. and also a gently spicy undertone.

With time the spices develops into more wood; and a cedar impression present towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant and quite bright scent for warmer autumn days, which is quite synthetic but not disturbingly so. It is a bit thin at times, but not without its charms, albeit not particularly original. 2.75/5.

Cedre Sambac by Christine Nagel for Hermessence by Hermes is a perfume that arrives with intrigue by exposing an uncommon pairing indolic naphthalene jasmine sambac with a powdery sandalwood / cedar. There is a feral wild elegance from this unlikely combining. Almost otherworldly. This is a daring blend of oriental florals and woods that immediately is a feminine statement, but the audacity and wild blending is intriguing for anyone to wear. Cedre Sambac is a very non Hermessence character from the nose for Hermes, Christine Nagel. I am not sure about this one.
