Bvlgari bewitches with Jasmin Noir.
Dark Matter Bvlgari bewitches with Jasmin Noir.

Black is back in a big way, and Italian jeweler Bvlgari works it to the hilt. Its latest olfactory offering, Jasmin Noir, is sophisticated, decadent and mysterious. It's everything that the brand is known for and all that its loyal devotees have aspired to since the boutique's inception in 1905.


Taking the heart of the brand's premiere fragrance is the jasmine flower, which, in itself is a seductive study in contrasts: at sunrise it releases a delicate, fresh scent, turns citrusy with an orange blossom fragrance during midday, and finally becomes musky and sensual by dusk.


Other notes like green sap and gardenia greet the wearer upon the first spritz, which rounds out to Sambac jasmine absolute and velvety satin almond. The scent ultimately settles into a sweet, warm dry-down of woodsy notes and tonka bean giving a whiff of something, paradoxically, equally wearable for day and night.


Bathing herself in Bvlgari's emblematic necklaces and providing the face of Jasmin Noir is none other than Kate the Great herself. Miss Moss personifies the sexy ambivalence and irresistibility of the fragrance, which is at the same time both bold yet pure.


The scent's bath and body line indulgently gilds the lily even further and provides a refined, multi-faceted cleansing experience.


Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, EDP 100ml, P7498. EDP 50ml, P4798. EDP 30ml, P3450. Available at Rustan's. See the Store Directory for details.
