This perfume was extremely simple, one-note on me. It never seemed to mature past the jasmine/white flower note, which I found to be quite heavy and a little cloying. The overall feeling: heavy, thick-feeling in the nose and throat, and a little suffocating. Gets a touch ammoniac as it ages on the skin. I was hoping that a perfume inspired by Diderot would encompass some of his fabulous complexity, but instead it gave the one-note-simplicity of the dictionary's entry for "eau jasmin". I would only recommend if you are a big fan of jasmine. Definitely of perfume of a past era, it felt more "grandma's cosmetic box nostalgia" than "sinning nuns". Two points for fun color (presentation) and aged, mysterious vibes, definitely an evening scent. Overall: underwhelming, and not with current perfumery trends, if vintage is not your thing.
I got this perfune as a sample at Barney’s few years ago and it just became my personal favorite. It’s so personal,I love that the scent lingers all day .. it’s very quiet and intimate.. almost hypnotic.
Very indolic. Jasmine smells more like tuberose.
Delicate and feminine, floral, not too animalic or dirty as some reviewers say...I can't find anything I don't like about it other than I Wish it lasted longer on my skin. I think it's gone in about an hour.
