    The opening has a bright, fresh & clean jasmine, joined within moments by the "magic marker" type of indole, & then a touch of spice & fruit. Ten minutes in, the jasmine becomes creamier, sweeter & woodier, & suddenly it reminds me very much of Givenchy's Organza, with its creamy, nutty, woody heart notes. From here it doesn't change much until the far drydown, when l detect whiffs of ylang, leather & ambergris in the base. Six hours in it's settled very close to the skin, but there's still faint traces fifteen hours after application.
    l would describe this as a "warm" jasmine, very suited to the golden days of late summer & early autumn. A nice fragrance, but nowhere near special enough to justify the price, IMO. lf you love this one but find it beyond your means, l highly recommend Organza as a much cheaper alternative.

    Possibly in the wake of the original Alien's success Tom Ford appoints for us another sambac jasmine/spices/amber/woodsy notes combo which appears classic and trendy/modern at once. There is a solid classic bergamot/patchouli/oakmoss chypre approach representing the Jasmine Rouge's traditional side (tracing some great classics a la Ysatis for instance) but I detect a more contemporary approach with a sparkling and aromatic pepper/ginger (finally leathery) accord more brash and projecting (at least initially) in air. Really orangy and floral with a stout neroli and an heady ylang-ylang presence. The latter is notable and (in its link with amber and balsams) arouses a simil sort of exotic indolic tuberose vibe. The dry down smells about a sophisticated creamy-spicy jasmine/tuberose combo kind of languid but basically linear and common. Over a couple of hours I finally detect minimal hints of silky leather veins but I would never frankly dare to properly define this aroma a leather/floral one. Pleasant but somehow anonymous (another drop in the olfactory Ocean).

    The jasmine has probably received the solifor treatment more than any flower in perfumery save the rose. There are plenty of types available and at the full range of price points. Serge Lutens‘s solifloriental A la Nuit and leather solifor Sarrasins. Badgely Mischka’s fruity soliflor Fleurs de Nuit. Mugler’s chemo-soliflor Alien. Etat Libre’s woody soliflor Jasmin et Cigarette. Green, indolic, sweet, doughy, sweaty, pretty, naughty? There is such a wide range of tones that by highlighting or downplaying specific notes, a perfume may take any number of turns. That said, jasmine solifores tend generally tend toward the crass.
    Jasmine Rouge is not more tactless than, say, A la Nuit, which is my favorite jasmine soliflor, largely for its hearty embrace of crassness. Jasmine Rouge has an effusive opening, with a kaleidoscopic cycle jumping around from green to sweet to tart-indolic to spicy-floral at any given moment. It even has a bit of the yeastiness that jasmines and tuberoses sometimes have. It’s not unattractive by any means, but jasmine topnotes seldom are. Others have noted that it falls apart by the basenotes, and I disagree. It does become less distinctive over time, and a bland sweetness smothers the other topnotes, but it manages to keep a sketch of its overall shape.
    Would you pay $250-500 for a a beautiful perfume that you love? Tough question. Would you pay it for a tolerable one?
    Counterintuitively, distinctiveness is a risk in a luxury design product. Recognizability has as much greater value, and is typically found sitting in the middle of the road. Jasmine Rouge winds up feeling more like a place holder in a perfume line than than a perfume that someone had a great desire to make. It captures an inherent obstacle to launching a line rather than releasing a perfume. How inspired will a perfume be if its goal it to fit a category and fill a slot? It’s a question that comes up with each perfume in the Tom Ford Private Blend line.

    To me, this perfume smells the most like standing next to a Jasmine bush. It has a nice balance of melodious floral with a bit of greenery and earthiness that grounds it. The reason I gave it 4/5 was that it doesn't seem to evolve or change much on my skin. While I'm going about my day I'll sometimes get a punch of the scent (yay florida humidity).

    This is one of those scents that's really difficult to describe. It's gotten some mediocre reviews, mostly from jasmine fanatics led by the ad copy to expect another A La Nuit. Instead, it's pure Tom Ford, one of those dense, complicated scents like Japan Noir, Noir de Noir, or Black Orchid that seem to have a million conflicting things hitting all at once.

    So what does it smell like? It's fruity and sweet but also dirty, with a lot of jasmine and indoles mixing with a maraschino cherry smell and perfumey aldehydes in the beginning. It's got that Tom Ford signature jammy fruity patchouli running in the background, as well as a classic white flowers accord, heavy on the waxy, almost tropical ylang ylang. It's also got a salty mineral quality to it that's hard to pin down (but smells almost like beachy skin) and a shot of that creamy sweet pink pepper/bai rose note that so many common fruity florals use as a base, but I could never call Jasmin Rouge a fruity floral or common. It much to "perfumey" (and too "niche") for that.

    Given time, something comes in that mostly smells like really old paper. If you can imagine red fruity jasmine with a ton of indoles mixing with that old book smell while a quiet mix of jammy patchouli and creamy sweet pink pepper hum along in the background, that's the best description I can come up with for what Jasmin Rouge smells like for most of the day.

    So, does it work? I think so. In spirit (though not at all in terms of smell), it reminds me of A*Men - It's kind of a hot mess, but it somehow actually makes it work. It's ridiculously flowery and perfumey, but that dirty, almost woodsy old paper and indole smell grounds it in territory that's too weird to be strictly feminine.
