Jasmine - A Comprehensive Guide to this Indolic (okay, Sorta Skanky) and Gorgeous Flower - 17 samples

Jasmine - A Comprehensive Guide to this Indolic Flower - samples
Jasmine is a flower with great indolic qualities.  Indoles give the flower its rich, narcotic fragrance.  Insects can't see white flowers, so white flowers, like the jasmine and gardenia, put of a lot more indoles than other flowers so the little flying pollen messengers can find them.  Indoles are usually referred to as fecal or animalic. That's our perception only, though jasmines and horse sweat have a lot in common molecularly.  In the perfumista world, that thought now encompasses the word "skank."  So when a perfume is referred to as skanky, it usually means it is highly indolic or full of cumin or civet or some other substance that translates to the nose as dirty or showing olfactorily our undies.  How much the indoles are diluted dictates how "skanky" perfumes are. Also, different types of jasmine are more or less indolic. This sampler pack will feature a lot of jasmine perfumes of varying indolic qualities and in combinations with other notes, which gives completely different effects.

Your sampler pack will include 1/4ml sample (1/4 filled sample vial) of each of the following Jasmine Scents

  1. Aerin Lauder Ikat Jasmine - Light, soft, clean jasmine - nothing indolic about this scent - jasmine all cleaned up 
  2. Badgley Mishka EDP - a lot of white flowers in combination with jasmine
  3. Bvlgari Mon Jasmin  Noir -  A gourmand Jasmine adding nougat to make this edible scent
  4. Creed Love in White - sandalwood, iris, orange zest and Italian jasmine, a unique Creed take on jasmine
  5. Dior Diorissimo - jasmine and lily of the valley.  
  6. Dior Hypnotic Poison - jasmine as a deep oriental, mixed heavily with amber
  7. Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette - jasmine with smoke
  8. Frederic Malle Une Fleur de Cassie - jasmine combined with mimosa, apricot, cassie, cumin (yeah, the open is skankalicious!)
  9. Jean Patou Joy EDP - the bit white floral classic, jasmine and tuberose - interesting to compare this to the L'Artisan
  10. Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint - more mainstream, but adding mint to a slightly indolic jasmine is a nice touch

  15. Serge Lutens A La Nuit - a masterpiece of jasmine perfection, indolic just to the point it has to be
  16. Serge Lutens Sarrasins - Balanced between indoles and animalic notes, a little bit feral
  17. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb - the quintessential big white flower perfume, orchid, freesia, etc., made with Sambac jasmine, which tends to be less indolic.
