Reviews of Jasmina

There is one review of Jasmina.
This scent opens with a bit of a clamor; jasmine, ylang, and grapefruit are all there competing for your attention. The jasmine is slightly indolic with that oily gasoline quality, but itís tempered by the tart sharpness of the grapefruit and the whole composition is smoothed over by the buttery ylang. After just a few minutes, things settle down, and the scent rockets through a syrupy sweet phase into a more traditional jasmine stage that sticks around for the rest of its life.

Overall, Jasmina is a sunny, luminous scent that jumps off the skin. Like others from the line, the high-calibre materials serve it well in that itís one of the most direct and well-presented jasmines that Iíve run across. While the composition strikes me as fairly minimal, the consideration of using citrus and ylang is unmistakable as these notes compliment the jasmine perfectly and donít detract from it at all. Over the next 30 minutes or so, the indole kicks up a bit more as the citrus dies off and it does become a touch more raunchy than the opening would infer. The profile is dense, but not cloying or suffocatingóthereís more than enough space to move around.

Although Jasmineís a note that I tend to prefer buried in a blend as opposed to upfront and loud, the representation here is outstanding. The grapefruit is a nice distraction while the notes sort themselves out, but we came for the jasmine and thatís really what we get with Jasmina. In this regard, this scent is probably best suited for jasmine fanatics than a more widespread crowd. Even though other notes are present, it should appeal to fans of the solinote approach as the jasmine is beautifully framed. For me, itís a bit too loud up front and then it tapers off and gets quiet a little too quicklyóbut thatís the nature of working with such materials as this. Although itís not my personal favorite from the line, itís very good and one that jasmine fanatics should seek out.
