    Default Jasmine fragrances for men?

    I think jasmine is considered to be a very feminine scent - am I right? Anyway, I got a free jasmine essential oil-sample from RK Sons and I really love it. It does smell pretty "girly" to me, but I really don't care. I think I'm going to wear it as a perfume . But I still wonder if there are other good jasmine based fragrances with other notes that makes them a bit more suitable for men? I want the jasmine to be the main-note in the composition, and not hidden somewhere in the background. Please suggest something .

    I personally find Armani Prive Eclat de Jasmine to be a unisex fragrance.

    I think LeMale is a good jasmine fragrance. Night-blooming jasmin that is.

    Etat Libre d' Orange has a fragrance called Jasmine et Cigarette that is great. It is a sweet indolic jasmine attached to a smokey warm tobacco. It is a bit gender bending because it is feminine first, then very masculine too. Unisex, I guess.

    Caron 3rd Man which I like to describe as LeMale for the older man.
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    I'm surprised nobody mention Paul Smith Story. It has very dominant / jasmine only smell in the middle notes but totally wearable by men because after about 2 hours of jasmine, it turns in to a very masculine creamy base. Very long lasting.

    Fleur du male opens very jasmine-y but I don't know about the development though cuz I haven't give it a full wear yet.

    I cannot smell any jasmine in Le Male at all

    I'll second Jasmin et Cigarette. It's not at all natural, but it's fun.

    Though harder to come by, Sarrasins intrigued me today. It's a rather understated but very true-to-life jasmine.

    Original BRUT used to be considered a jasmine bomb!
    But times have changed, and some people deny it's existence.

    I was very surprised about QUORUM mentioned earlier.
    I wear it now, and no jasmine is detectable under the dominant
    heart note which is Patchouli supported by fir resin and carnation
    which are both quite noticeable too. I read that jasmine
    (+ geranium, + sandalwood ) is also in that party. Indeed
    a fantastic masculine, but not a jasmine perfume!

    Any man who has the guts to wear Fleur du Male should also try
    Lutens' more refined, less synthetic A La Nuit and Montale's Jasmin Full.
    I love Jasmine and A la Nuit is my favorite at the moment. This could change
    should I actually buy Patou's Joy or 1000 for myself, and before it's too late.
    The latter has less jasmine than roses, but a known critic recommends it
    for men even .

    Third Man and Salvador Dali Pour Homme are both jasmine fougeres.
    A La Nuit is the closest thing I know to an actual jasmine plant at dusk: beautiful, very strong, and to me quite masculine.
    Odalisque: jasmine, muguet and orris, and a salty chypre note. My current favorite.

    I must agree with narcus and Strollyourlobster - A La Nuit by Serge Lutens is the BEST jasmine soliflore in existence. I've sampled a bunch of jasmine fragrances and this is the one I always come back to.

    Is it 'suitable for men' as you asked for irrbloss? That is for you to decide. This man wears it confidently.

    Another jasmine frag often overlooked is Annick Goutal's Le Jasmine. At first I was shocked by how metallic and sharp it was, but after sampling it a couple of times, I purchased a FB. The metallic sharp notes have an oud-like quality and give it a very masculine edge. I honestly can't picture a woman wearing it.

    Fleur de Louis by Arquiste has a nice smooth blend of Orange Blossom, Florentine Orris,
    Jasmine and Cedar wood.
    It has the best qualities of the white flowers plus more substance than the usual of this genre.

    Thumbs up Re: Jasmine fragrances for men?

    I believe that a man who wears a Jasmine-dominant scent is one who is secure in his masculinity himself. My favorite such scent is Norma Kamali Jazmín EDP. Yes, I wear it... infrequently, and sparingly. One bottle is enough for several lifetimes.

    Here's what Chandler Burr had to say about Jasmine (1/2008):

    Jasmine is a sado-masochistic, slothful, dirty little flower. You can (and everyone does) dress it up and make it presentable before sending it out in public, but basically the stuff in its natural state is an unwashed beast wearing dirty underwear and stinking from its armpits. Jasmine is a flower that has an asshole, and you can smell it. It's the indoles.

    Turin made a somewhat similar comment in his review of Diptyque's Olene, which was my favorite jasmine before being reformulated. I think Tom Ford's Jasmine Rouge is the closest analogue of the vintage Olene.

    It's my favorite representative of the "smoky jasmine" type. The Third Man is also quite good, though to my nose it has a strong clove note that you need to be okay with.

    Mogra or Jasmine Sambac is a different story and can easily worn by men.

    I recently purchased Nautica Classic -- not the first time I've owned this, but the first time I realized there floral heart is primarily jasmine. Although I feel it blends well with the lime, woods, patchouli, aldehydes, musk, and other floral notes. I do enjoy this scent quite a bit, it's sort of a guilty pleasure, one that I always keep rebuying, even though I promise myself I won't buy it again, because.. it just doesn't do much. Projection is poor, longevity is weak, but damn, it smells great. Clean, soapy, floral, aldehyidic. I recommend checking it out if you love jasmine.
