Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise description
Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise is the crisp, fresh sister to the original Mon Jasmin Noir. This version removes the fluffy nougat notes and the creamy jasmine of the original, and freshens up the structure from head to toe with sparkling green tea, grapefruit, and pomelo. The result? A perfume so clean and effervescent that it will make you want to bathe in it, especially on hot days.
It is difficult to find perfumes that balance the ability to keep you as cool as a cucumber while also exuding that quality that says to you, hmm, now this perfume is interesting. But Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise manages both.
Undeniably, the brisk green tea and sour citruses have a cooling function. One spritz of this on a sweaty day will have you singing hallelujahs to the zestiness of the almighty pomelo, the mouth-puckering tartness of grapefruit, and the almost minty tannins of green tea. Freshness at last!
But there is also something so graceful and elegant about the way Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise is made. Perhaps it is because all the heady creaminess and indole have been stripped out of the jasmine, rendering it green and crisp - papery petals that float prettily in the bowls of green tea being served.
Or maybe it is because the powdery almond notes add a cloudy sweetness to the scent that reminds us of Italian almond cookies dusted with confectioner’s sugar. The almondy notes are subtle, sitting right underneath the green tea, crisp jasmine, and zing citrus notes, but never overwhelming the scent or the wearer. The almond dust adds a certain voluptuousness to the body of the scent.
Towards the base, the green tea and citrus drop gracefully out of the picture, leaving behind a clean, fluffy white musk fragrant with crystalline jasmine petals. Imagine a warm, clean terry bathrobe in a posh spa or the soft fragrance on your hands after washing with jasmine soap, and that’s what it smells like.
To be worn anywhere by anyone who loves fresh, crisp jasmine scents or clean floral musks, but it would be remiss of us not to mention that Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise does particularly well in the heat, especially under a crisp white shirt or linen dress.
Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise is, as the name suggest, exquisite - a crisp jasmine tea scent that whispers elegance and good breeding at every turn.
