When I hear the name of Bvlgari, what come to my mind is class, elegance and quality. Though my relation with their fragrances never passed the stage of one spray at the store counters, this scent surprised me rather pleasantly.
First of all let me state that I don't dislike their perfumes, they are wearable and elegant yet they miss to make me crave them. So when I had in my hands the bottle of Mon Jasmin Noir I was rather sceptic, I was expecting another jasmin white floral to be honestm and the nougat tone was troubling my mind a little as I am not the biggest fan of confectionary notes.
The initial spray was very pleasant, sweet citruses embrace you with the pretty smell of the lilly of the valley, ultimately girly, after that it becomes a floral musky scent on me, very nice and airy, with a hint of saltiness, I cant figure out where I get that from, may be it is the musk combined with the nougat. As for the nougat, I wouldn't say it is dominant, it is there but not in your face, not sickeningly sweet. In a way it reminds me little girls who sneak and wear their mommies' shoes and put their make up on. Girly and elegant with a hint of child.
All in all, I can't hide that I enjoy wearing this fragrance when it is cold and sunny outside and I am wearing a dress, it just feels right and pretty. Last but not least the classic bottle with the adorable cute bow is to die for.
