  • Merylam: Hiram green: moon bloom. It is a tuberose, but it has copious amounts of jasmine. November 26, 2018 at 7:37am Reply

    • Tamsin: My favourite Jasmine scent would have to be tied between Joy by Patou (on my mother’s dressing table as a permanent fixture when I was growing up) and White Gold by Ormonde Jayne.
      It’s a white floral built with Jasmine absolute. Gorgeous. November 27, 2018 at 2:12am Reply

  • Patty: Hi,

    1. A la nuit – Serge Lutens

    2. Yes

    Mitsouko is my favourite perfume, so I’d really love to get the eau de parfum (I own the perfume both modern and vintage and vintage eau de toilette).

    Thank you so much to you and to A.

  • Lily: I am not interested in the giveaway (mitsouko and I don’t get along) but my fave (and only)?jasmine heavy perfume is houbigant orangeurs en fleurs. I don’t know that it smells jasmine forward to everyone but that is the clearest floral note to me. November 26, 2018 at 8:30am Reply

  • JH: Thanks A for the giveaway!
    1. My favourite jasmine is Joy (Patou of course). To be exact it’s a rose-jasmine but it’s so gorgeous. Other white florals that I love (leaning more towards tuberose) are Fracas and Nicolaï Number One.
    2. Yes. November 26, 2018 at 8:48am Reply

  • Carla: Thank you! Dear A, I have always loved Sarrasins by Serge Lutens for its jasmine. However I even more highly recommend the new MEM by Bogue. It is so beautiful and jasmine is one of its strongest components, along with, surprise, lavender.
    If you want a mixed white floral with jasmine rather than tuberose or gardenia and a lovely Chypre feel, I recommend Odalisque.
    Thanks you may contact me via email. November 26, 2018 at 9:08am Reply

  • Heidi Czerwiec: 1. My favorite jasmine is SL A La Nuit or Annick Goutals’s Songes (which also has a lot of creamy ylang-ylang)
    2. Yes! I adore Mitsouko! Also Bogue’s MAAI & Roja Dove’s Diaghilev, as old-school plush chypres. Thank you! November 26, 2018 at 9:23am Reply

  • Mridula Koshy: Thank you A and Victoria for this giveaway. I love A la Nuit which is getting quite a few mentions. I also love attar oils of mogra and chameli which are available in India (and perhaps elsewhere too). But my favourite white floral has to be SL’s Tubereuse Criminelle. It is a much headier experience than A la Nuit. But maybe this is not a fair comparison.

    And yes, you can contact me. November 26, 2018 at 9:32am Reply

  • yumeyorimo: Thank you Victoria and A.
    1. Since my favourite white floral, Joy, has already been mentioned, I will suggest something unusual: Jasmin et Cigarette by Etat Libre d’Orange, if you are feeling adventurous.

    2. Yes, please do. November 26, 2018 at 9:33am Reply

  • AndreaSD: Oh, how fun!
    I would like to recommend two Jasmine perfumes to A:
    1. La Reine Margot (Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier), which is really heavy, indolic and musky
    2. Blush (Marc Jacobs), which is on the contrary a very soft and fluffy-pastel Jasmine with a lightly citric top note. Bonus: Stylish bottle
    Both seem to be discontinued but pop up on Ebay or suchlike from time to time. November 26, 2018 at 9:35am Reply

    • Alessandra: Blush is a dream but a discontinued one, alas. I still cherish my bottl and use it with much attntion! 🙁 November 26, 2018 at 9:37am Reply

    • AndreaSD: Oh, and of course you can, Victoria November 26, 2018 at 12:05pm Reply

    • Olfactor: Hello!
      Just a little precision:
      Queen Margot is a very beautiful jasmine!
      This perfume was sold as part of the collaboration between the perfumer Nicolas de Barry (composer of “Reine Margot”) and Maître Parfumeur et Gantier. Today it can only be found under the brand name of Nicolas de Barry’s perfume house.
      I also recommend the wonderful jasmine that Chris Sheldrake composed for Serge Lutens: “À la Nuit”. November 29, 2018 at 4:38pm Reply

      • AndreaSD: Great info, thank you! So glad this is still being produced. I have just been to his website and there is so much more to explore and try. November 30, 2018 at 2:48am Reply

  • Alssandra: What a sublime and generous offer.

    1) A LA Nuit or, if you are looking for something perhaps more original and a bit tropical, even Ormonde Jayne’s Sampaquita would do. For something more airy and for simple everyday use, I would recommend Carthusia’s Gelsomini di Capri, which is surprisingly delicious!

    2) Yes, of course 🙂 November 26, 2018 at 9:36am Reply

  • Kathleen Smith: 1) I can’t choose; my favorite Jasmine is between Areej Le Dore Flux De Fleur and Auphorie Mayura. Both bursting with Jasmine as well as other white flowers.

    2) Yes. November 26, 2018 at 9:38am Reply

  • Claudia S: A la Nuit is the one she’s looking for. Please do contact me by email. Thanks November 26, 2018 at 9:39am Reply

  • Paola: Hi and thanks to A. and Victoria for this giveaway.

    1) La Haie Fleurie by L’Artisan Parfumeur (previuosly known as La Haie Fleurie du Hameau), but I think it’s discontinued.

    2) Yes. November 26, 2018 at 9:44am Reply

  • Ann: 1) Joy has been mentioned a few times, but I’m mentioning it again 🙂 I would recommend EDP. Also, my favorite white floral is carnal flower – it’s very special – even children compliment me when I wear it 🙂

    2) yes!

    Thanks November 26, 2018 at 9:46am Reply

  • Sarah Hicks: 1) Chopard Jasmin Moghol – pure Jasmin (and a little Tuberose).So incredible!

    2) yes

    Thanks!! November 26, 2018 at 9:58am Reply

    2) Yes, of course. November 26, 2018 at 10:11am Reply

  • Dajana: Thank you A and Victoria for the giveaway! I just wanted to share my faves:
    – favourite is Private Collection Jasmine White Moss Estee Lauder.
    -t he other one I also like very much is Bvlgari Jasmine Noir. November 26, 2018 at 10:16am Reply

  • Celeste Church: I know tuberose and orange blossom give the Jasmine in Robert Piguet’s Fracas a run for the money, but I think the Jasmine is very beautiful in this white floral masterpiece. It’s so lush and gorgeous…makes my whole body smile when I smell it.
    And yes, of course.
    What a lovely giveaway! November 26, 2018 at 10:38am Reply

  • Karima: 1. Jasmin Rouge Tom Ford
    2. Yes indeed you may

    Thank you for this lovely giveaway. And good luck in your search, A! November 26, 2018 at 10:38am Reply

  • Klaas: Hello A & Victoria, what a generous, generous giveaway! Mitsouko and samples is the best present any perfume lover could wish for 😉

    So I have been testing 2 gorgeous jasmines the past few days. I recommended them in the previous ‘recommend me a perfume’ thread but will gladly recommend them again since they are so very nice.

    1. Drama Nuui (Parfumerie Generale). Radiant, buttery jasmine soliflore, slightly powdery with just a hint of spice to give it a bit of an edge. It shines like a ray of sunlight.

    2. Madagascan Jasmine (Grandiflora); Michel Roudnitska created this marvel that is both sensual and light at the same time. The jasmine is kept green & crisp, and will bring springtime to even the darkest winter morning.

    Cedre Sambac is another favorite

    Yes, you may contact me by email and share my email address. November 26, 2018 at 10:46am Reply

  • Roxann: Still looking for a jasmine. I’m awaiting a indigogo funded project which features jasmine, but of course don’t know yet if it’s “the one”. So I keep looking. I’m taking notes of some of the recommended jasmine’s by your readers. Great resource!! Yes you can share my e mail. November 26, 2018 at 10:50am Reply

  • Aniko: Thank yous go to both Viktoria and A.

    1. My favorite jasmine scents are Jasmin White Moss by Estée Lauder (my first chypre), Privilege by Parfums Privilege (my second “serious” scent after First by VC&A, it really dates me), and Jasmine Full by Montale.
    2. Yes, please. November 26, 2018 at 11:06am Reply

  • Sandra Park: 1. K de Krizia! Vintage! A personal old fave.
    2. Yes! November 26, 2018 at 11:11am Reply

  • Muriel: Hey, I surely lack all the experience to recommend a perfume, but I think that Annick Goutal would definitely sit beautifully amongst the perfumes you are willing to share. Then again, this new passion of mine didn’t allow me to discover them all – yet-, but Matin d’Orage is probably my “white flower” crush.
    2. oh yes, that would be wonderful! November 26, 2018 at 11:16am Reply

  • Sylvia: My favorite white floral is Estee Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia. Besides being very easy to wear anytime of year, It’s affordable and easily found!

    Yes, please contact me. Mitsouko has been on my want list for awhile. November 26, 2018 at 12:14pm Reply

  • Auntie Lar: Happy to participate-thanks!
    1. Another vote for Serge Lutens Sarrasins, when you want your jasmine to double as a drug. When you want to be able to take it everywhere, I go with Memo Paris Lalibela.
    2. Yes – absolutely! November 26, 2018 at 12:17pm Reply

  • Elke Schmeling: 1. Hands down my favorite white floral (with Jasmine in the heart!) is Ciel d’Opale by Ann Gerard. The nose behind it is Bertrand Duchaufour. It’s not as heady as some other white florals, and it’s a compliment getter. Lovely. Another one to consider for the jasmine: Fleurs d’oranger by Serge Lutens. It’s more jasmine-y than orange flower-y. Good luck!
    2. Yes, and thanks for the generous draw! November 26, 2018 at 12:21pm Reply

  • Carolyn: I love jasmine scents. They seem to smell nice on me as I alway get compliments.

  • flowergirlbee!: thanks for the giveaway,i could use some cheering up.

    i am very happy to be emailed.

    i am not a big white floral or jasmine person.

    i do like annick goutal un matin d’orage and have enjoyed wearing the tiniest dabs of carnal flower by frederic malle.i also use jo malone’s orange blossom cologne.

    i am wondering if i can sneak in my favourite osmanthe yunnan in the hermessence range but i am not sure if osmanthus counts as a white floral.

  • BrittanyB: Dear A., Thank you for your generous offer! I would love an email. I am personally in the early stages of a journey of discovering the classics and off the beaten paths scents. One classic white floral I’ve recently discovered is Patou Joy (EDP). It is such a confident, self-assured scent without being aggressive. I usually prefer challenging or darker scents but Joy is so unapologetically bright and bold it’s my favorite for when I’m feeling down or indecisive. Good luck finding your new scent and thank you again! November 26, 2018 at 10:55pm Reply

  • Notturno7: Good Lord! Mitsuko giveaway!! My heart just skipped a beat ❤️. Thank you for this most generous offer, A. I’d be delighted to be contacted via email.
    On the topic of my favorite white florals, I can write a small essay. Just kidding (only partially😂). Sarrasins is my favorite jasmine but I love Songes in the summer. White floral faves: no 22, no 5, Bois des Iles, Allure in pure perfume, 24 Faubourg, White Linen (also in the summer), Tuberose Criminelle, Une Voix Noire (darker, muted gardenia / grape), Fracas, Rive Gauche, Diorissimo. I’m sure as soon as I clink send, I’ll remember something else I love but forgot to mention.
    I hope you find something you’ll love. November 26, 2018 at 11:45pm Reply

    • Notturno7: I forgot to say that I broke my bottle of Mitsuko EDP few years ago. It fell out of my hands and shattered on the bathroom tiles. It still pains me to think about it!
      Few other white florals I forgot to mention:
      -Narcisso in the white cube bottle- a lovely gardenia and musk
      -Tom Ford Shanghai Lily – lily and jasmine with a darker mood
      – First
      -Lanvin Arpege ( these last two are heavy with aldehydes but also very rich and multifaceted)
      Hope you fall in love with your new discoveries! November 28, 2018 at 5:12am Reply

    1. Songes edp ,dabbed not sprayed, is a lovely tropical jasmine with plenty of vanilla (tho the edt is great too); close second comes By Kilian Love and Tears, it’s much more delicate and feels like a “true” soliflore.

    2. Absolutely. November 27, 2018 at 5:49am Reply

  • eudora: Thanks for the wonderful and generous offer,

    1. A Jasmine perfume that has not been recommended but I love is Lust by Lush. You don’t get the complexity of a Guerlain perfume. But still, for me it smells like the very real thing -or my own Platonic Jasmin idea. Plus it lasts on my skin forever. When I wear it I feel like walking through a BOIS DE JASMIN.

  • Monika: 1. I’m not very experienced with jasmine, yet I’d like to recommend one seldom mentioned perfume – Catch… me, by Cacharel. Very joyful and festive. It brings to my mind Easter celebrations (rather down to earth not spiritual side of it) or wedding parties. Besides the jasmine it combines orange flower (which I often associate with elegance and chic, I don’t know why) and almonds.
    2. Yes, thank you. November 27, 2018 at 10:51am Reply

  • Karen (Kaleidoscope): Thank you for this generous offer, A and Victoria!

    I rather like Gucci Bloom. In addition to jasmine, you get tuberose as well as other white flowers. The staying power and sillage are delicious!

    2. Of course!

  • Nancy A.: Thank you for your generous consideration giveaway. Love Jasmine — but I find myself gravitating towards a good oil as opposed to a blend. What soon may leave the U.S. for distribution is Goutal’s Gardenia Passion and while it’s not Jasmine it still provides the potency especially on a cold, wintry day.

  • La Frogette: EL Tuberose Gardenia. Underrated, unappreciated, and less expensive than Carnal Flower (a distant second place for me). November 27, 2018 at 1:00pm Reply

    I enjoy Bvlgari Jasmin Noir and Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori.

  • maggiecat: Hey, I’m still searching for the perfect jasmine – but it’s a lot of fun trying bunches of them. I’m intrigued by the new Cedre Sambac – definitely different, very lovely on skin but a bit scary at first. And Lancôme’s Jazmin et Marzipan is growing on me – it’s light but more complex than one would think. Also – and I don’t think this has been mentioned – L’Occitane’s Jasmin et Bergamote is a very nice fresh jasmine, perfect for warmer weather.

    This is a very generous draw – good luck to everyone! November 27, 2018 at 1:25pm Reply

  • Lydia: What a kind offer! I would love to be contacted.

    My favorite jasmine perfume is Odalisque by Parfums de Nicolai. It smells to me like a lovely, sweet, ladylike jasmine on a clear spring day.

    My very favorite white floral generally is Ostara by Penhaligon’s. It’s also a spring perfume, but it has a lush, honeyed quality.

    I’ll also mention that I just tried Santa Maria Novella’s Tuberosa and it’s so beautiful I can’t stop sniffing the scent strip. It smells like a gardenia bush in full flower (my nose often confuses gardenia and tuberose), with sweet jasmine hovering around the edges. I love when white florals really smell like flower gardens.

  • Mel McMillan: Thank you both so much Victoria and A for the giveaway! I’m very much a newbie in this (I’ve never smelled Mitsuoko! Gasp!), and I’m slowly working my way through all the brands at my local Sephora as it’s all I’m near – supplemented by one Serge Lutens sample set I bought (my first! Yahoo!).
    My breadth of knowledge is therefore, limited. Nevertheless, here goes.

    1) I’ve seen a few people mention Sarrasins and I loved it! A la Nuit was soooo ‘jasmine!!!!’, too much for me; but Sarrasins had a smokey, hazy, nighttime feel to it, as if someone wearing the softest leather jacket had just snuck a cigarette behind a jasmine covered wall at an evening party.

    My aunt used to wear Jo Malone White Jasmine and Mint- which always smelled like someone had made a big pitcher of jasmine and mint sweet tea. Summery and I remember loving it!

    2) Yes! November 28, 2018 at 8:36pm Reply

  • Small: 1. It’s a screechy jasmine, but I do like Thierry Mugler’s Alien.

    2. Yes!

    Thank you for this opportunity! What a nice gesture. November 29, 2018 at 12:08am Reply

  • Diana P: 1. Woods of Windsor – White Jasmine
    2. Yes

    I’ve only lately immersed into the world of perfumes and I’m obsessed with classics, especially from the house of Guerlain. Mitsouko is next on my list! November 29, 2018 at 6:21am Reply

  • Sonia Kurtz: Hello,

    1)Tom Ford- Jasmine Rouge. A delicious and intoxicating combination of joyful brightness rounded out with some rich, deep intrigue. Glorious in its scope, and aptly named.

    2) Absolutely

    Thank you November 29, 2018 at 6:47am Reply

  • Katie: Good Morning,

    I don’t know enough about perfume to make a recommendation, so I asked a coworker who is very into white florals. Hope that still counts. Here are her recommendations:

    1. Bulgari – Jasmine Noir (my coworker said this is stronger and muskier) or Bulgari Mon Jasmine Noir (my co-worker said this is lighter, sweeter)
    2. Yes, please contact me by email.

    Thank you November 29, 2018 at 6:52am Reply

  • Carolina: 1. I used to wear and love vintage Carolina Herrera (with the black polka dots on the box). That is a gorgeous white floral. I don’t know how is the new version.
    2. Yes, no problem. November 29, 2018 at 7:09am Reply

  • Jodee: Hello Victoria & A, great contest! Thank you.

    My favs are:

    Serge Luten: A la nuit (soliflore)

    Vero Profumo Rubj Perfume Extrait (sultry
    Egyptian jasmine, orange blossom and musk).

    Estée Lauder: Terracotta (beachy jasmine and white floral)

    Annick Goutal: Songes (white flower haze with vanilla).

    #2 – Yes. November 29, 2018 at 1:19pm Reply

  • Sarah: 1. The only jasmine-centric scent I have is Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile. It doesn’t get a lot of love for some reason, but I think it’s beautiful, very rich.

    2. Yes, please! November 29, 2018 at 1:25pm Reply

    • Amy Goldstein: I second the vote for Gelsomino Nobile! To me it actually conjures the real thing on the breeze!
      And yes, always happy for perfume-related communication! November 30, 2018 at 3:41am Reply

  • Dana: I’m so glad you asked about this! Jasmines and white florals are my favorite, I’ll be looking up everyone’s recommendations later.
    1. Jasmine- Serge Lutens A La Nuit, I wore it on my wedding day this past May!
    Other white florals: Serge Lutens Fleurs d’Oranger, that and the Houbigant are the two best orange blossoms! Neela Vereire Creations Niral is also stunning, it would have been a contender for the wedding had I smelled it before, it’s a blend. Mostly white but has some rose. I found all of them on this site, it’s so helpful. The Serge Lutens are more streamlined while the other two smell more complicated.
    2. Of course!
    I hope you find a few you love! November 29, 2018 at 3:14pm Reply

  • Eyneen: 1. Jasmine Sambac Superior by Rising Phoenix Perfumery. It is a perfume oil.
    2. Yes, you may please. November 29, 2018 at 4:05pm Reply

  • kuri: What a fun giveaway! I think Mitsouko EDP would be wasted on me but I’ll just chime in:

    1. Jean Patou Fracas is what comes to mind for a white floral; I have only sampled it though.
    2. No need, thanks though! November 29, 2018 at 7:56pm Reply

  • Anne: Such a generous and exciting giveaway!

    1) I know it’s already been mentioned but tally me to the Annick Goutal Songes camp for a lushly lovely jasmine. Alternatively, when I’m in the mood for an uber-cheerful wisp of jasmine I love Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir L’eau Exquise for its light effervescent blend of pomelo citrus and jasmine.

    2) Yes November 29, 2018 at 10:56pm Reply

  • Sarah: Grandiflora’s Madagascan Jasmine is beautiful. Not sure if it is widely available outside Australia. November 30, 2018 at 7:09am Reply

  • Inma: 1. Serge Lutens A la Nuit
    2. yes, of course

    Thank you A and Victoria! November 30, 2018 at 8:18am Reply

  • Charlotte: 1. I like Jasmin EDP by Molinard. It’s a punchy, realistic soliflore that, while affordable, still feels high-quality. The packaging matches the juice: loud (purple) but dignified (square and apothecary-influenced).
    2. Yes! 🙂 November 30, 2018 at 3:16pm Reply

  • Maye: How can anyone go wrong with jasmine (or tuberose either)?
    1. I love Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge and Dyptique Do Son. Perhaps you can give these a try: Byredo Flowerhead, Rodin Olio Lusso although
    2. yes and thank you. December 1, 2018 at 1:48am Reply

  • Raymond: 1. I like Olène by Diptyque, which is a true-to-life, properly indolic jasmine. My favorite white floral is Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estée Lauder.

    2. Yes and thank you! December 1, 2018 at 8:00am Reply

  • Zuzanna: 1. My favourite jasmines: Secret Joly and Marions-Nous, both from Oriza L. Legrand, but completely different – SJ is lush, smells as it were made in the eighties, were it a colour, it would be electric dark purple, MN is dry and restraint, with tobacco and talcum notes; golden and creamy white.
    My favourite white florals: Divine (Divine), Moon Bloom (Hiram Green), Jardin d’Armide (Oriza… again).
    2. Yes, of course. December 1, 2018 at 12:56pm Reply

  • Mary: JOY of Patou reminds me of my mother, it is her cherished perfume, so smelling it remonds me of her.

    How fun it would be to receive these goodys and try some new perfumes. It is fine to contact me via email.

    Thank you for offering! December 1, 2018 at 5:28pm Reply

  • Sam: Thanks A and Victoria for the giveaway!
    1. Still expanding my knowledge for perfumes out there, the only jasmine I could really think of is Bvlgari Mon Jasmin, but I wouldn’t say it is floral, it’s more of a woody fragrance. Another one is 24 Faubourg, I actually got a sample not long ago and it smells wonderful to me.
    2. Yes, please! December 1, 2018 at 7:03pm Reply

  • KatieAnn: Thank you for this most generous giveaway Victoria and A.

    1. Dyptique Olene (very rich jasmine)
    2. Francis Kurkdjian’s Le Beau Parfum
    3. L’Artisan’s La Chasse Aux Papillons (maybe a bit more tuberose than jasmine, but a beautiful white floral)
    4. Parfums DelRae Amoureuse (another rich white floral with cardamom)

    Yes, you may contact me by e-mail December 1, 2018 at 9:30pm Reply

  • Olga: 1. I love Caesars Woman by Caesars World! Maybe it’s in bad taste, it was a cheap Las Vegas souvenir scent launched in 1988, but it smells so beautiful on me! I’ve been wearing it non-stop for about a decade by now. Got tired of everything else (including the likes of Chanel and Comme Des Garcons) but not Caesars Woman. I suppose it’s hardly a recommendation since it was recently discontinued (and I’m devastated about it!). But you can still find it online. Though it’s not that cheap any more. I don’t know if it qualifies as a jasmine perfume but it does have Egyptian jasmine in it. I read plenty of reviews for Caesars Woman online. Most people say it’s gorgeous and smells a lot more expensive than it actually is (to be precise, it’s now “was”). A few people said it smelled cheap on them, like a good soap, but soap nonetheless. I guess it all depends on your personal chemistry. But everybody, me included, seems to be astonished by how long this fragrance lasts and how little it changes as you wear it. I’ve never encountered anything like it.
    2. Yes! December 1, 2018 at 11:31pm Reply

  • Susy: Thank you for this kind opportunity.

    1.I love Goutal’s Songes. Also Lutens Fleur d’Oranger.
