Winning Rose Jasmine
If I'd had Tea Rose Jasmine when I wrote my Jasmine Sniff Fest, it would have made the finals along with 9 other matchless beauties I found: Serge Lutens A La Nuit, Creed’s Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie, Montale Jasmin Full, Demeter’s Jasmine, Diptyque’s Olene, Odalisque by Nicolai, La Route d’Emeraude, Magnetic Scent Untitled # 1 and, Enlevement au Serail by MDCI. Tea Rose Jasmine reminds me a bit of Demeter's Jasmine, also Olene. They both have a beautiful and rich green note and so does this. Tea Rose Jasmine came along 3 years after Tea Rose. It has essentially the same formula, per their respective notes pyramids, except Jasmine is obviously amped up here and Rose there. For more than twenty years, The Perfumer's Workshop lived with these two classics until, in 1999 they introduced two more -- Tea Rose Musk and Tea Rose Amber. They hit those two out of the park as well. Hard to believe perfumes so gorgeous are such bargains. Tea Rose Jasmine is initially strong but calms down into lasting loveliness.
