Jasmin from Fragonard was released in 2015. Unusually it contains three different jasmine flowers types. To quote from Fragonard’s promotional material:
“In 2015 Fragonard is celebrating Jasmine. Grown in Grasse since the 16th century, jasminum grandiflorum is nicknamed by generations of growers and perfumers: the Flower!”
The packaging is adorable, a sunshine yellow box with drawings of jasmine boughs and a bluebird for good measure. The bottle is clear with flowers scattered across it.
Opening notes: Orange blossom and bergamot.
Middle notes: Grasse jasmine, Egyptian jasmine and Indian jasmine.
Base notes: Amber.
A regal serenade to jasmine, this oozes elegance and historical sophistication. The orange blossom is a vibrant force that introduces the jasmine petals to the wearer with a soft curtsy. The jasmine is a gentle caress, a ladylike ensemble which settles beautifully and is as delicate as a dove’s cooing.
Occasions: This is subtle and can be worn at any time.
Seasons: Spring and summer.
Rating: Silver medal.
Price: Extremely expensive.
