Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
Michael Kors launched three rather linear fragrances that I assume were meant for layering; I’ve already reviewed Sexy Amber. And now I’m reviewing its sister, Glam Jasmine.
Glam Jasmine opens as a squeaky clean jasmine with brightness from citrus and fruits. It’s heady but not as overwhelming as I expected it to be. It actually reminds me a little of Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine hair products (which I do buy for the scent). But, this perfume has more “red fruits”. It’s like jasmine shampoo and red fruits. It dries down to warmer jasmine with generic warm woods.
Glam Jasmine isn’t terrible but I feel like there are better jasmine soliflores out there even in this price range. But, hey, that’s just my opinion. I also use hair products that smell like this so it’s hard for me to separate the “functional-ness” of this scent from my mind.
Notes listed include citrus, cassis, jasmine, sandalwood and cedar. Launched in 2013. PERFUMER – Harry Fremont
Give Glam Jasmine a try if you like clean jasmines. Or if you like perfumes like Juicy Couture, Diana Vreeland Perfectly Marvelous, Yves Rocher Tendre Jasmin and/or Tom Ford Private Blend Jasmine Rouge.
Projection and longevity are average.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Squeaky clean jasmine. In my “eaupinion”, there are better jasmines out there even in this price range.¹ It’s not terrible, but for a jasmine soliflore, it doesn’t really stand out to me.
¹For example, Pacifica Waikiki Pikake, Yves Rocher Tendre Jasmin, Juicy Couture and Etat Libre d’Orange Jasmin et Cigarettes.
