    Ya, I'd have to say that jasmine is hot at the moment. A La Nuit by Serge Lutens is a nice jasmine-y scent if you're interested in suggestions. As a girl, I can say that it's one I'd certainly notice.

    Uh, no, not me. I'm sorry but I can't do scents where jasmine is prominent. But then, I'm just one out of seven!

    It's a favorite of mine! *There are different kinds of jasmine: "Jasminun grandiflorum", *"Jasminun officianalis sambac" & "Jasminun auriculatus"*, just to name a few.

    Here is some additional info from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jasmine

    Oh yes, most definitely! I wish I could find an exact replica of what the star jasmine scent in California during spring and summer. I'd wear it daily if I found it.

    Oh, how I love the scent of star jasmine! I used to think the original Bill Blass was pretty close to a dead ringer, but it's changed. You might want to try what's available now, though, to see what you think.

    Well I thought that I don't like it, but I tend to change my mind after testing Blush by Marc Jacobs.
    It stays fresh! I also reminds me of the jasmin tee that I like so much!

    When I lived in California, there was a night-blooming star jasmine bush (shrub? it was on a trellis, if I recall correctly) just outside my bedroom window. On warm evenings I'd open the window and the fragrance would slowly fill the room. Mmmmm.

    I love jasmine perfumes, too.

    I like jasmine--my favorite is the rose/jasmine blend Joy. I have the perfume,
    (albeit I've owned it since the 80's--it still smells lovely) and to my nose, jasmine is more dominant than rose in the perfume. I felt it was more dominant in the EDP of that time, also, but the EDT seemed more dominant in rose. I haven't tried the latest forms of Joy--don't know how they compare to those of the 80's.

    Jasmine's one of my obsessions. *If you love it, don't miss A La Nuit, Keiki Mecheri Jasmine, La Chasse aux Papillons, or Creed Jasmal! :-)

    Just added - I tried Bvlgari's new Voile de Jasmin and it reminded me a lot of Blush! You may love it!

    Default Re: do women like jasmine scents?

    Ummm - not so much for me. My nose finds it heavy and cloying, even with its usual partner, the rose. (I really cannot stand the actual flower in bloom - almost makes me nauseated.) That said, it is apparent to me from reading this board and perfume blogs that there are many different jasmine incarnations. Perhaps I just haven't found the right one.... Always open to new ideas!

    Time to prune it off to promote extra blooms when next it flowers.

    I dunno whether I can wear jasmine, never considered it.

    Default Re: do women like jasmine scents?

    I usually don`t like strong, dominating jasmine notes ,i don`t have a problem when it`s light ,well blended in the scent. I believe it has to do with the fact that jasmine contains too much indoles ...i some times find even the real jasmine flower`s smell to strong and unpleasant.

    I dont know if you mean jasmine scents in men's cologne. If so--- a resonding YES!!! HM is sooooo sexy- and all it has is Vanilla, Chocolate, lemon ( I think) and jasmine. It is a sexy, sexy masculine scent. ANd then in women's perfume it is always nice!

    I once read Jasmine being associated with the hippie days- and corraled with the likes of patchuolli! I had never thought of it as being "hippie'. A few friends of mine said jasmine is to "aromatherapy-ish". I love it, though.

    I've just got the Godiva shampoo bar from Lush.
    It smells so good, very true jasmin! It might be great to layer it with Blush.

    hm...Lush-Blush ;D

    I'm pretty immune to the concept of "fasionable" but I do like jasmine quite a lot. Although lately I'm leaning more toward sambac than grasse because it seems fresher.
