Believe it or not, there are Montale perfumes out there that are not oud and rose combos! Some smell like chocolate. Some smell like amber. And Jasmin Full smells like an explosion of feminine white florals.
Jasmin Full opens in complete Montale fashion with pyrotechnics and dancers. It’s loud. This jasmine is cranked up and waving glowsticks. Jasmin Full is interesting because it’s indolic but not too much so. And it somehow manages to be both green/fresh and sweet. It’s not sugary sweet but tangy sweet. Something about it reminds me of grape jelly. Jasmin Full starts to wear as an orange blossom and jasmine marmalade. With time the fragrance gets warmer, waxier and reminds me more of jasmine…and California.
Notes listed include jasmine, honeysuckle, and orange blossom.
Give Jasmin Full a try if you like white florals or if you like perfumes like Serge Lutens Fleurs d’Oranger, Diptyque Olene, Carolina Herrera, Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile, and/or L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons. Jasmin Full is a feminine fragrance and I think it works in any season. I highly recommend this to anyone that likes Serge Lutens Fleurs d’Oranger.
Jasmin Full has above average projection and longevity. I could see how some people may prefer this scent dabbed or in a roller-ball applicator.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $120 on Amazon.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A sweet, tangy raver jasmine. I think it’s pretty. And I like that it waves glowsticks.
