Key Notes of Splendida - Jasmin Noir

What Does Splendida - Jasmin Noir Smell Like

Splendida - Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari begins with an immediate breath of gardenia, a scent that's rich, heady, and unmistakably floral. The gardenia is sweet, giving way to a slightly tart edge reminiscent of freshly squeezed plant juice. This initial blend is like a walk through a blossoming garden after a rain shower.

As the perfume settles, a strong and powerful aroma of jasmine sambac absolute emerges, providing a potent and intoxicating heart to the scent. This rich, floral aroma is deepened by the presence of almond, which delicately cuts through the jasmine with its nutty, sweet undertones, adding an unexpected twist to a familiar fragrance.

The base notes bring warmth and depth, grounding the flighty floral and sweet notes in a solid foundation. The scent of cashmere wood gives an elegant dry-down, earthy and slightly musky, while patchouli adds a herbaceous undertone, moist and earthy. The fragrance completes with the sweetly reminiscent scent of tonka bean - a blend of vanilla, almond, and clover, a creamy finish which rounds off the perfume like the final notes of a mesmerising symphony. Overall, Splendida - Jasmin Noir is a masterful blend of floral and sweet notes with an oriental, woody backbone.

Review of Splendida - Jasmin Noir

Splendida Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari is a perfume that weaves a tale of floral decadence for the modern woman. The scent is primarily floral, with the queen of the night - the jasmine sambac - ruling the olfactory journey. It stands apart with its distinct oriental undertones and a sweet, creamy layer that wraps around you like a warm embrace.

The perfume is a nod to the cooler months of the year, making it a perfect choice for fall and winter. Its woody and spicy hints lend themselves well to the crisp air and cold nights. However, it doesn't shy away from making appearances in the warmer months, with a refreshing dash of floral notes that can uplift moods during spring and the occasional summer evenings.

The perfume makes its presence known, without being overwhelming. It has an evening allure, an intoxicating yet subtle enough aroma for a night out. However, it also adapts itself for casual leisure times, making it a versatile option in your perfume wardrobe.

The perfume’s longevity is respectable, lasting through the day but might need a touch-up for the night. The sillage is moderate, leaving a trail but not overpowering a room. The scent’s value is justified by its unique blend of notes and the luxury that Bvlgari embodies.

While the scent leans more towards mature audiences, the sweet-creamy note is a universal appeal, making it a delightful pick for the younger crowd too. It might be a tad heavy for daily wear to work, but its charm lies in its adaptability to special occasions.

Overall, Splendida Jasmin Noir is a complex yet welcoming perfume that invites you into its world of floral oriental magic. Its imperfections are a part of its appeal, making it an interesting addition to any perfume collection.
