Introduced in May this year as a flanker to 2011’s Mon Jasmin Noir, which, at its turn is also a flanker to 2008’s Jasmin Noir, the newest feminine fragrance from Bvlgari is called Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise. Reportedly inspired by Boboli Gardens (a park in Florence featuring a wonderful collection of sculptures), Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise is described as a feminine floral woody musk and was developed by perfumer Sophie Labbe.
After testing it last Saturday, assisted by my wife (I sprayed a few whiffs on her wrist) I would say that this fragrance might be an interesting alternative for this summer. Built around the note of jasmine, this is a fragrance that took the Eau de Parfum theme and reinterpreted in a fresh floral green way, “where verdant nature meets fresh, cascading fountains”, as described on the official website.
After the first moments, Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise revealed a refreshing blend structured around the note of pink pomelo, juxtaposed to an accord of fresh green almond. Then, as the scent advances into the mid development phase and the top notes subside, the floral facet kicks in with a combination of grandiflorum jasmine and sambac jasmine white tea. When the flowers begin to evaporate, the dry down brings forward the sensual character of white musks offset by precious woods.
The flacon that holds Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise preserves the same shape as the original Jasmin Noir and Mon Jasmine Noir, this time the liquid’s color exhibiting a pale green shade, while the ribbon that came attached to the bottle’s neck is painted in black. The face of the advertiding campaign and star of the video commercial is once more the German-American actress Kirsten Dunst.
