My skin turns jasmine's marzipan into chewing gum
At the risk of stepping on some people's toes. I don't want to disparage anybody for the smell they like. Opinions, scent preferences and skin chemistry are really very different.
Anyway, this smell smells terrible on me.
I can't really understand why so many people like him at the moment. Maybe the scent on most people's skin smells different, maybe my skin just can't cope with the scent at all. In any case, I don't find a "jasmine tea aroma", no "real" jasmine, I don't find the scent "pleasing" or "discreet", but exactly the opposite, heavy, oppressive, pompous, sweet-synthetic.

The scent starts with me with a heavy chewing gum prelude, it is exactly the pink Hubba-Bubba chewing gum that loses its taste really fast. However, Jasmine's marzipan does not lose its flavour quickly. The chewing gum note is retained, it changes to the exact odor of the big red cinnamon chewing gum.
With the best will in the world, I cannot understand where jasmine is to be found, let alone marzipan. I still don't understand how notes like jasmine, vanilla and wood can result in cinnamon and chewing gum notes. It's already very mysterious. After about one and a half hours the synthetic chewing gum has finally decreased, even if the impression remains. Heavy flowers come out stronger, but in their worst form, stuffy, musty, oppressive, headache producing. Meanwhile the base is smellable too, it's okay. There's some nice wood aromas.

The whole fragrance is extremely sweet and smells like chewing gum for kids, very artificial. As an adult woman you can't wear it in my opinion, just for the sake of your fellow human beings. Jasmine's marzipan is for me on a par with the Britney Spears scents.
Really, I'm making my skin responsible. I believe that the scent of all the others who commented smelled completely different.

Pretty Jasmine
I didn't get much bitter or powdery almond in Jasmins Marzipane. The fragarnce is all about jasmine during the first 3 hours, and a very pretty one at that. The jasmine here is more full-bodied than those primarily relying on the green radiancy of Hedione, sweeter and with a noticeable indolic twang. But compared to Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge and Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Jardin Blanc, it's tamer and has a less complexe olfactory profile.

The initial indolic and green nuances soon disappear after about 1 hour. The sweet floralcy of jasmine also becomes more and more nebulous with time. During the 4th and 5th hours, the fragrance sometimes smells very softy of caramelised wild strawberry, probably because the cashmeran becomes more noticeable at this stage, which I perceive as having an abstract berry and woody smell among other things. But ultimately, Jasmins Marzipane would resolve into a clean white musk infused with the vague sweet floracy of jasmine. The vanilla is never explicit on my skin to evoke a truly gourmand caracter, but serves to provide a smooth playground for the dainty jasmine.

Jasmins Marzipane has a moderate to soft sillage, and lasts about 8 hours on my skin.

Although the smell of Jasmins Marzipane didn't inspire the same awe as its splendid bottle to me, it's pretty charming and easy on the nose, and adheres to the conventional feminine beauty quite well. It's probably not the most innovative, interesting or realistic jasmine fragrances that I tried so far, but it does smells more natural and more sophisticated than a few mainstream offerings. I would recommend it as an easy-going everyday fragrance to jasmine lovers, or to those who are venturing into jasmine fragrances but are still unsure about how much indole one can handle.
