Jasmine Angelique Whilst I approve of the AC line being fully unisex, This one is quite clearly a feminine fragrance IMO - especially in the opening. I didn't think it would be for me based on the name, and I was quite right.
Certainly a floral scent - the problem being it smells like an over-ripe floral: Like a bouquet of flowers that have been left 3 days too long in their vase, and are starting to droop and give-off a strong, dusty pollen. Quite an unpleasant opening stage.
I presume a realistic jasmine scent, but this puts me off looking into jasmine as a note in general. The middle stages are more decent, but the damage is already done. The middle becomes a little more bright, almost going into a jasmine tea type smell - I wish this was the theme of the whole scent, as it would have fitted in well to the AC line. Even a milky jasmine-rice scent would have been an interesting theme.
This one seems most similar to Grand Neroli from the same house - in it's thick pollen, overall yellow vibe. Unfrotunatley I can't get around the rotten vegetation at the beginning. There may be a little powdery patchoulli representing the dusty pollen - but this comes across as a hippy type flower-power-patchoulli. Dry down is to a fairly pleasant lemony-amber.
Overall certainly not for me. May be of some interest for females who want a kind of deconstructed Number 5, without any of the uplifting, glossy adelhydes. 49/100
I like my jasmine to be dirtier. This is a very clean one, very green, with a soapy feel. Its almost like lilly of the valley. Theres also some citrus acidity in the opening, and later a bitterness I cant pin exactly. A strong floral, very qualitative, with great projection and longevity.
