7 GUERLAIN - JASMINE by Guest Post M. J. Rose

M.J. Rose:  I've been fascinated with lost fragrances since long before I started writing The Book of Lost Fragrances... since I found a bottle of perfume on my great grandmother's dresser that had belonged to her mother in Russia. Here is one of those lost fragrances that stirs the senses and the imagination... (reasearched and described  with the help of the perfume writer  Dimitrios Dimitriadis)

Jasmin first appeared in the Guerlain perfume portfolio in 1924 as one of their numerous soliflore interpretations. 

The opening is an impression of mildly indolic jasmine blooms; rich and opulent, with a crisp green undertone. The perfume transitions further as a saccharine honey/vanilla accord emerges that remind one of chewy jasmine macaroons. Pale woods bestow a slightly 'toasted' vibe. 

Jasmin dances between juvenescence and adulthood - a rare and sadly discontinued soliflore that celebrated women both young, and those young at heart.
