Reviews of Jasmin by Molinard

Another single note winner from Molinard. This is a basic jasmine, no real development. It layers beautifully. If you like to create your own scents by layering high-quality fragrance specialties and bases, these are the scents to use. This one is especially nice layered with any of the following Molinard scents: Fleur de Figuier, Muguet, Patchouli, Vanilla, Amber and/or Heliotrope.

What can I say about this except that it’s jasmine… almost pure and almost solo... Jasmine. I can catch some green and maybe some vetiver in there, but I don’t get any other floral, nor do I get any wood notes except for the alleged vetiver. Essentially it’s jasmine. As a Jasmine solo, I think that it could use some improvement. The tenor, the timbre of the jasmine note is unexciting and uninspiring. It’s a bland jasmine and the most interesting thing about it is that shadow of an indole presence in its background. Not a strong indole, but it’s there. Jasmine is my unquestionable favorite floral note in combination with other notes in perfumery. If this scent is indicative, jasmine must be one of those elements that work better in concert with other elements as opposed to staying in solo operations. Molinards Les Fleurs Jasmin, as most of the scents in Molinard’s Les Fleurs and Les Senteurs series, is meant to be used with other Les Fleurs and Les Senteurs “solo” fragrances for personal fragrance building. For that purpose it fulfills its mission very nicely. As a solo fragrance it is mediocre, but for layering I can only vote a thumbs up – it does that job beautifully.
