"Jasmine mean time", well, i was lucky to have the chance to test this limited edition standout gem from O'Driu' due the aforementioned brand's courtesy in shipping to me some vials at home. JMT starts effectively with a signature natural moderate blast of citrus, culinary spices (mostly saffron or kurcuma and fragrant/balsamic cumin) and aromatic herbs, so (i absolutely agree with drseid) the initial effect i detect (while a fragrant and natural jasmine stands down ready to develop its hug) is kind of "fishy", yes i pick some weird piquant botanic "sweet saltiness" up which heralds the indolic (or better lymphatic/herbal) jasmine blooming up that starts in a while to soften the spicy/herbal strength, to characterize the aroma and to sweeten the wake. The saltiness (almost a dissonant herbal subtle acidity-but i don't know if i rightly express my feel) is produced by the brew of the natural culinary elements in connection with the floral lymphatic effect (the effect you could have whether decide to rub your skin with a bunch of flowers and herbs in the middle of a meadow). There is a sort of almost edible green chili pepper aromatic feel ( may be combined with hints of basil) in the background which i like so much. The jasmine seems cedary and musky but is plain and dominant in its gorgeous rising "naturalness", just surrounded by a sort of wet weeds final effect. JMT is a wonderful aromatic juice, so bracing and comforting at morning, so distinguished along the day in its sombre refinement elicited by the heady sinister jasmine. Virile in my opinion and unfortunately inaccessible.
