Jasmin Noir Perfume by Bvlgari, Jasmin Noir is an intense, sophisticated woody floral fragrance that balances light and dark elements to create a deliciously alluring scent that exudes mystery. The opening notes are a green and crisply intoxicating blend of fresh foliage and the silky, sweet piquancy of budding gardenia. Warmer, almost musky tones of jasmine sambac emerge as the scent settles, softened and rounded out by delicate gourmand nuances of almond. The final dry down is a rich base of bittersweet, anisic licorice and tonka bean wreathed in warm amber, patchouli and creamy musk.
This fragrance was designed by perfumers Carlos Benaim and Sophie Labbe under the Italian label Bvlgari and first released in September of 2008.
