A jasmine gourmand, this opens as an orange vanilla creamsicle with with an especially bubblegummy jasmine giving it candy sweetness. There's some ethyl maltol marshmallow, and after a while some clove comes through.

This is the kind of candy marshmallow gourmand I truly dislike, and while I'll admit it's a clever way to use jasmine, I'm not enjoying this at all.


Spicy clear jasmine
Fills night with bright colors of
Its truest spectrum.


A nearly candied sweet opening. The citrus and anise mix well, like a cordial beverage. After a couple of minutes jasmine enters. It is slightly dirty underneath. Indoles begin to intensify. There is a bit of "nuttiness" from cardamom. Cinnamon, just hovers.

Eventually this turns to all jasmine. The dirtiness begins to fade. This, is actually a very good jasmine-centric fragrance. One of the better ones I've tried. Sandalwood has a greenish tinge to it. Amber and patchouli are smashed together. They don't smother the jasmine at all. They seem to compliment it well.

Much later, a smooth amber-ish tone lingers on the skin. Well done fragrance!


This is pleasant. It opens with some definate jasmine, but that is supported by cinnamon and berry (the current someone mentioned sounds right. Definately a dark red berry in the current/cranberry family) The other spices are likely there too but it's difficult to pick them out. This is a very well blended scent, which isn't always something I enjoy but this is never muddy or perfumey.

The drydown is a nice blend of amber and patchouli with the sandalwood taking more of a backseat (or maybe my skin just soaks it up). It is again solidly blended and seems to change. Sometimes it's a solid amber, a little lighter than ambre sultan. Sometimes it's a dank blended out hint of patchouli, similar to Angel. Sometimes there is a hint of vanilla.

My biggest complaint is between the opening and the drydown there is a vanilla note that is very "cheap vanilla candle" scented -- creamy and fake french vanilla without quite smelling like vanilla and almonds. It blends with the spices and the resins so it's not always bad, but there's occasional "bad Christmas candle" moments.


This review is for the older formula.

This jasmine is warm, indolic & spiced with cinnamon & anise. I don't get the listed citrus notes at all. It's animalic in a soft, furry way; nothing too filthy or offensive here. A whiff of patchouli brings an earthiness to the mix, & later there's a grassy note in the heart. It doesn't change much in the drydown, fading to a skin scent five hours in, & almost gone after eight. Another reviewer compared it with Musc Ravageur, & I can see the resemblance, except of course for the added jasmine. I would class this as a jasmine-based floriental, rather than a white floral in the usual sense.
I did notice that when I first wiped the dabber on my arm, the spices were more pronounced, the animalic side less so. But after decanting & spraying, these impressions were reversed. I wonder if this, as well as the reformulation, accounts for the differing impressions one reads of this perfume?


The opening of Jasmin de Nuit is really nice and intriguing, with fairly more amber and vanilla than
jasmine - a synthetic, dusty, "grey" amber-vanilla accord. The jasmine appears like buried under a layer of this grey sweet dust, enveloped in a fog of ambery silky notes, which is a great visual effect, as it makes me think of the smell of ancient, Neoclassic statues in gardens. Plus, it also has a whole more contemporary side, as this "satin" feel may also be viewed as an industrial, polished kind of powdery feel. Shortly other notes come in too: aniseed, cinnamon, eugenol (cloves) and a light hint of patchouli, all with the same rarefied appearance, all sharing a warm, ambery and slightly fizzy feel (I guess due to ambroxan, or however, pleasantly artificial). A radiant, graceful, nostalgic but also surprisingly contemporary scent. Warm and cold from times to times. In all this, the jasmine is still a sort of white shade that comes and goes, finally vanishing quite soon - which leads us to the main weakness of this scent, which is the drydown, quite dull and linear, mostly centered on spices. Nonetheless, apart from that, a nice, elegant, interesting modern scent.

7,5/10

P.S. I don't smell anything indolic at all.
