Reviews of Portraits : The Bewitching Yasmine

There is one review of Portraits : The Bewitching Yasmine.
Yasmine goes on with a nice shot of saffron and pepper. The jasmine is mostly buried, acting as more of a sweetener than a direct smell. There's some fairly forward butter, as well as burnt caramel creme brulee adding to the sweetness. I'm guessing there's also some currant at play, as there's a hint of piney green urine in the background. It's an interesting smell, likely inspired by the indie perfumes that define the cutting edge right now, in that it's really rough, clearly informed by Slumberhouse and the like, where it's less about complimentary notes and more about achieving a sweet, dark continuity of texture.

But there's a problem. About an hour in, an inky "woody amber" aquatic base comes in and cheapens everything. By hour two, all that's left is a hint of caramel smothered by what's basically the cheapest base available, leaving Yasmine smelling like an Axe body spray for most of the day. Too bad - this had promise but ultimately fails. Thumbs down trying to pass off a cheap cliche of a drydown in a $250 exclusive perfume. Nope.
