Mon Jasmin Noir was introduced by Bvlgari last year, as a flanker to 2008’s Jasmin Noir. Advertised with the tag line “the essence of a jeweller”, the fragrance is a feminine floral woody musk, developed by perfumers Olivier Polge and Sophie Labbe. And if Kate Moss represents the essence of Jasmin Noir, this time the face selected for the advertising campaign was the American actress and model Kirsten Dunst. The shooting for the campaign called “Mediterranean paradise”, happened in a garden arranged in the 16th century style, in front of Villa Balbianello, near Milan. Alongside Kirsten Dunst, the other main character in the video commercial is played by a huge lion, interacting with the actress.
I asked my wife to help me with the sampling of Mon Jasmin Noir, during one of our visits to Sephora. Given that we both liked Jasmin Noir and we even considered an acquisition, the interest for the new fragrance was huge. Luckily, our expectations were not disappointed, because Bvlgari delivers the type of floral scent that women adore, because of the cleverly selected ingredients that resulted in a floral symphony.
Mon Jasmin Noir starts off on an interesting top note, embodied by a blend of citruses and Lily-of-the-Valley. Later, as we reach the mid development, the essence of the perfume is unveiled, in the aroma of jasmine, a note that lingers until dry down. The final phase is the occasion in which Mon Jasmin Noir shift to a woody and more personal facet, emphasized by Virginia cedar, mixed with patchouli and white musk and juxtaposed by a good dosage of nougat, which confers the scent an interesting trail.
The bottle that holds Mon Jasmin Noir looks like its predecessor, except the black color scheme which was modified this time with pearly white, while the bottle’s neck was adorned with a black ribbon and a golden plate engraved “Bvlgari”. If you loved Jasmin Noir, I’m sure you will find Mon Jasmin Noir very interesting.
