Jasmin et Cigarette fragrance notes

Reviews of Jasmin et Cigarette

An odd scent for me since it reminds me of a truck stop gas station bathroom with the cigarette and florals, kind of like how they try to cover up bathroom smells with floral deodorizers. It's quite linear as the drydown stays the same.

Below average projection but decent longevity.

A disappointing jasmine fragrance.

There is a jasmine note that's fleetingly lush in the beginning. There's absolutely no tobacco note of any kind to my nose. Once the jasmine dies down beyond the mid phase, one is left with a musky floral dry down that's rather commonplace. Sillage is somewhat thin, and duration is underwhelming on skin at around 5 hours. The only reason it gets a neutral is because it's rather charming for the first hour.

For this to be Jasmin et Cigarette, one has to liberally douse oneself in it - AND smoke a couple before or after.

2.5/5

Count me in the camp that wanted this to smell... dirtier? It's quite a nice jasmine, with just the faintest hints of cured tobacco (not tobacco smoke) and little else to keep it interesting. I'd love to smell this on a heavy smoker, just walking through the door after stamping out a butt on the sidewalk - the effect would be perfect, I just wish you didn't have to, you know, add your own cigarette to the mix.

Two fun points: 1.The hay and tobacco notes suggest an unlit cigarette, whereas the title is more suggestive of silver screen movie stardom.
2. You would think that, for a smoky scent, they would employ a more indolic jasmine than a clean one. Nope!
This scent is like a snapshot of a girl moments before being peer-pressured into something she does not want to do which she is told is cool. It is a pure white jasmine pretending to be tobacco flower with the help of friends. It is funny, awkward, and as reserved as the gals that land themselves in such a situation. Good stuff, but little in the way of evolution or presence. Still definitely worth trying because it is quite unique and hey, maybe you're that girl.

Often one needs to ignore Etat Libre’s back stories to truly appreciate their releases and Jasmin sans Cigarette is a case in point. Anything resembling a cigarette in this composition is possibly in the wearer’s auto-suggestible head, unless if one counts a certain murk like a plume of dirty water that lurks around the edges.
But for the major part this is a jasmine soliflore – the jasmine itself is bright (almost to the point of coming over a bit plastic), unyieldingly floral and fat, with hints of strong Indian hair oil and something the cat left on the carpet rounding out its odour profile. Nonetheless, it’s not a heavy breather, just a true jasmine, with the green notes that the fresh flower has also coming through. However, its chutzpah seems to run out in the later stages as the scent gets cleaner, thinner, and downright monotonous. Still, one I suspect jasmine fans may value – I just feel like adding some oud or something to it to shake it up.

A reasonable jasmines combined with tobacco - that is exactly the opening I am getting. They are both balancing each other well. The tobacco very clearly is cigarette tobacco, industrial cigarette tobacco á la Marlboro, a mix of fresh unsmoked cigarette tobacco and its ashes, with at times whiffs of dried grass and fruity elements evident. This is well done.

The drydown adds a musky-ambery note that is too generic to be of any further interest, but the tobacco remains until the end and remains the core persistent component throughout the longitudinal development on my skin.

The performance is on the less impressive side, with moderate sillage, adequate projection and a mere four hours on longevity on my skin.

A scent for warmer autumn days, it is characterised by the jasmine-cigarette central accord that is convincing indeed, and overall this - just - justifies its - barely - positive score. 3/5.
