The Different Company Jasmin de Nuit : Perfume Review

33333

The Different Company Jasmin de Nuit was created by the daughter of Jean-Claude Ellena, Celine Ellena. The notes include jasmine, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood and amber. Upon application it is a wonderfully rich jasmine with a transparent quality.

Sandalwood is a good match for jasmine, therefore the result is rather beautiful. After about 15 minutes the spicy ornamentation becomes evident. Cardamom is the one note that stands out the most for me, before the complete drydown, when amber overtakes floral notes.

I notice that jasmine fades rather quickly, leaving cardamom and amber to dominate. The translucent quality of the initial accords disappears, replaced by a dark spicy richness. The Different Company also includes OsmanthusSel de VetiverRose PoivreeBois d’Iris, and Divine Bergamote. Created by Jean-Claude Ellena, they bear his signature elegant style.

  • Susanna: Now this is the way I personally want my jasmine served up! Heady, sweaty and earthy! In my opinion this is the best of TDC’s line. It is just a nice surprize — as it drys down it does indeed lose a little jasmine high notes, but mellows into a very sexy and earthy scent. July 26, 2005 at 11:09pm Reply
