Le Jasmin is very much an “Annick Goutal” soliflore. It smells like something that the Annick Goutal house would have. It’s light, green and fresh. The opening is fizzy like gingerale with humid Southern belle white florals. It’s alive and sparkling. The rest of the fragrance wears as a crystal clear jasmine and magnolia. It reminds me of a simpler version of Annick Goutal Un Matin d’Orage. It’s a bit aquatic and reminds me of a coastal Southeastern flower garden after an Atlantic rainstorm. The sun is now out and all the little raindrops on the flowers glisten like diamonds. That’s Le Jasmin.
Unfortunately, Le Jasmin doesn’t wear very long on me. I get like 4 hours in a cooler climate. Le Jasmin glistens so much that there is no way that it can “stick” to skin. It leaps off.
Notes listed include sambac jasmine, magnolia and ginger. PERFUMER – Isabelle Doyen
Give Le Jasmin a try if you like other Annick Goutal soliflores like Un Matin d’Orage or simple floral perfumes like Fresh Pink Jasmine, Lucy B. Australian Wild Jasmine, The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom, Penhaligon’s Gardenia, and/or Chantecaille Jasmin.
The 1.7 oz EDP retails for 87€ at Annick Goutal.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A gingerale jasmine. It’s an effervescent jasmine, very pretty, very Annick Goutal.
