    Jasmin et Cigarette by Etat Libre d'Orange

    On me this opens as a soft but slightly animalic jasmine, with musky undertones. The dirtiness recedes very quickly, but then then l get an impression of the "bad breath" note that l got from Lust, albeit with the volume turned right down. One hour in, the tonka begins to sweeten it all up, before it fades to a retro-style jasmine-amber base. The projection is low, & it's pretty much gone after four hours.
    On the whole l don't dislike this fragrance, but l was expecting something much more edgy & dark than what l got. There is certainly nothing resembling tobacco or even ashtrays here, to my nose, which is a bit disappointing.
