Pros: An incredible white floral that smells exactly like fresh jasmine petals.
Cons: This one is strictly for floral lovers.
Notes: Jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle.
Reminds me of: L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons, but headier.
Development: The honeysuckle and orange blossom are really only accents here, helping to create a sense of depth and adding a touch of sweetness; a linear composition.
Longevity: Lasts forever on me and that's a good thing from a jasmine fragrance.
Sillage: Again, excellent, enough so that I was asked what I was wearing, but not too overwhelming.
Where can I buy it? $122 for a 100ml edt spray at Suravionline.com.
Bottleworthy: A jasmine-lover's dream.
The Bottom Line: I've always loved the smell of jasmine, it's true. Having always preferred to drink my jasmine (tea) rather than wear it, I've long been somewhat shy about wearing white florals. That began to change after I discovered Hanae Mori for men in the mid-90's and became enchanted with its big brash jasmine note. More recently, after being surrounded by an oasis of jasmine (petals, flowers, teas, oils) at the Hotel de la Paix in Siem Reap, Cambodia, I officially became a jasmine junkie and Jasmin Full is the perfect scent for an addict such as myself. Yes, it's a little pricey, but the materials used are exquisite, the scent lasts forever, and it truly does smell like fresh-picked Jasmine petals. What more can I say?
