Jasmine-Lilas () Floral Green
"Jasmin-Lilas", a perfume conceived to become your finery and your identity. There are two major characteristics of the new concept created by Jean-Charles Brousseau for his most recent perfume "Jasmin-Lilas" a new addition to his "Fleurs d'Ombre" collection. Thanks to its radiant whiteness, this flower relies upon its inherent power to utterly mesmerize us. Yet, the garden offers up such exquisite essences and the sweet mock orange branches gently brush against the jasmine, lily of the valley, lilac and the first roses of the season, as well as the new, fresh green leaves. Let's place this large morning bouquet inside a fresh and resplendently poetic atmosphere, next to fruit bowls brimming with Spanish melon, peaches and pineapple. All of these aroms perfectly blen together and give out an enticing fragrance. What more do we need to imagine and create a perfume that evokes such intense freshness and beauty?"

With this scent creation Jean-Charles Brosseau has designed another highlight in the line "Fleurs D'Ombre". It is a bloomy, white scent with a fine pineapple note in the top with a melange of Spanish melon and the freshness of green leaves.
The heart-note contains tropical blossoms with roses, jasmine and freesias. Lilies of the valley and the scent of orange blossoms top the ensemble off and remind of blooming lilac.
Peaches and nectarines lead to the soft base of white musk.
