Our Top 3 Picks:

#12 Burberry London for Women


Jasmine & Honeysuckle Heaven

A nice elegant choice from the house of Burberry.

Let’s take a look…

Sparkling Tangerine Citrus

Burberry London opens with a blast of sparkling tangerine citrus mixed with some sweet honeysuckle. Nice.

When it settles… the citrus fades and the jasmine quickly takes center stage beside the honeysuckle …with hints of peony and rose hiding in the background.

Here’s the beautiful part…

Fresh, Smooth & Creamy

As it develops, it gets smooth and creamy with a hint of fruitiness… and a hint of musk and sandalwood show up to add some warmth.

It’s fresh, clean, feminine and very ladylike.

More suited for the mature 25 up crowd and best worn in the cooler months: fall, winter and cooler spring days. This gets cloying in the high summer heat.

Perfect Daily Go-To

Perfect everyday go-to, days or nights. Work, office (spray lightly), casual, nights out, dates.

Now, a quick word of warning:

This is quite strong, so be careful with the trigger. 2 sprays MAX …and you’re set.

Burberry London is an EDP and has moderate arm’s length projection for the first 4 hours then sits closer to the skin, lasting about 5 to 9 hours.

Great. 🙂

Side note: the bottle looks gorgeous; it’s wrapped in the iconic Burberry check material which is adhered to the bottle.

#11 Michael Kors Glam Jasmine


Glamourous Jasmine

A sweet fresh jasmine white floral. Let’s break it down…

Glam Jasmine opens up with a blast of clean jasmine mixed with other white florals and a hint of fresh greenness.

…All sitting on a subtle warm creamy sandalwood base.

And it smells GORGEOUS.

It’s sexy and sophisticated… HUGE compliment getter.

The best part…

Super Versatile

Glam Jasmine is super versatile: days/nights, all ages, all seasons, all occasions (shines in the spring and summer).

Dates, casual, romantic occasions, work/office safe (if you spray lightly).

#10 Montale Jasmin Full


Full-On Jasmine

This is for true jasmine lovers!

Now, I’ll be straight with you…

The opening is quite harsh and is not for the faint hearted… But give it time for the magic to happen. Stay with me… 🙂

Smooths Out Beautifully

…After about 10 minutes it smooths out beautifully and smells just like a sweet fresh sambac jasmine bush in full bloom on a warm summer night.

In a word: intoxicating.

Some honeysuckle and orange blossom give it the perfect amount of sweetness and a hint of soapy freshness.

Daily Go-To

This is more suited for the mature 20-up crowd and is a perfect daily go-to for the spring or cooler days (gets cloying in the high summer heat).

Now, a quick word of warning:

This is a powerhouse and has a HUGE sillage. Do not overspray this one or you will cause some damage. 🙂

And the good news…

Super Long Lasting

This is an EDP and can stick around for 9 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

Important note: Montale use super light aluminium bottles – which do not come completely full… simply because the bottles are larger than what is required (this is normal and can cause confusion).

Let me break it down for you…

Fresh Clean Jasmine

Ikat Jasmine opens with a burst of fresh clean jasmine mixed with some tuberose and a hint of honeysuckle sweetness.

It’s soft, light and airy (not the heady or cloying type).

Now, as it settles… the tuberose fades into the background and reveals the beautiful soft sweet jasmine sitting on a creamy sandalwood base.

And it smells GORGEOUS.

It’s modern, youthful and elegant.

The beautiful part…

All Seasons, All Occasions

So… If you’re looking for a jasmine powerhouse, this is not it. But this smells so good – we don’t mind re-applying. 🙂

#7 Serge Lutens A La Nuit


Jasmine in a Bottle

For a lot of jasmine lovers this is the Holy Grail of all jasmines. And for good reason:

This smells SUPER realistic.

In fact, it’s like you literally stuck your head in a jasmine bush in full bloom on a cool summer’s night. Seriously. 🙂

By the way, A La Nuit is French and translates to: “To The Night,” a nod to the narcotic night blooming jasmine. And apparently…

A La Nuit opens with a HUGE blast of pure intense jasmine. Paint the town white! 🙂

A La Nuit is beautiful in both the summer and winter. Days or nights (more suited for nights).

All ages, work, casual, nights out, dates, romantic settings… You get the idea.🙂

That said… don’t overspray as the opening is intense, 1 – 2 sprays MAX …and you’re set.

But, here’s the kicker:

Although this is an EDP, longevity is not the greatest. We got about 4 to 5 hours of lasting power… before needing a respray. So please keep that in mind.

Bottom line: Jasmine lovers don’t sleep on this one.

#6 Diptyque Olene


A Super Realistic Jasmine White Floral

First off… This is not a complex scent. What you get is a photo realistic scent of jasmine. So much so…

Olene even received 4 out of 5 stars from the World’s best known fragrance critic, Luca Turin – in the book he co-authored: Perfumes: The A-Z Guide.

Full Floral Glory

Olene opens up in all her full floral glory – with a strong blast of jasmine, narcissus, honeysuckle and wisteria… with a hint of greenness.

The opening is pretty harsh (to my nose). But don’t judge the fragrance just yet… Give it about 15 minutes for the jasmine magic to happen.🙂

Stay with me…

Fresh Clean Sweet Creamy Jasmine

Now, when it starts to calm down… the jasmine steps up and takes centre stage… and the other florals morph beautifully into the background.

The result?

Fresh clean sweet creamy jasmine – with a hint of honeysuckle and a green soapy vibe.

And hats off to Diptyque… it smells SUPER realistic. Seriously.

Everyday Go-To

A perfect everyday go-to for the spring and cooler summer days/nights.

Now, a quick word of caution:

Be careful with the sprayer… as this can be overwhelming if over-sprayed. 1 – 2 sprays MAX…

No best jasmine list would be complete without Alien. 🙂

Alien is not for the faint hearted. This is a love or hate fragrance. You have to be a true jasmine lover (which I’m guessing you are …if you’re here).

Let me break it down for you…

Dark, Sweet & Creamy

Perfect for special occasions, dates, nights out, clubbing…

Let’s take a closer look…

Sweet Boozy Vanilla

Alien Essence Absolue opens up with a blast of jasmine mixed with a thick syrupy sweet smoky boozy vanilla vibe.

As it dries down… the jasmine softens up and the sweetness is balanced out perfectly with hints of incense and some woodiness.

The result?

Rich, Warm & Addictive

A warm, sweet, smooth boozy vanilla honey vibe with whispers of jasmine and incense sitting in a woody background.

And it smells GREAT. 🙂

It’s sexy, rich, warm and addictive. HUGE compliment getter.

Now, to be clear…

Sophisticated

This is NOT a typical teenybopper sickly sweet scent. it is a very composed, sophisticated and well put together fragrance… more suited for the mature 20 up crowd.
