Canned mandarins, wet dog and an alien flower UFO
"In Love Again Jasmin Étoile" crossed my path rather by accident, so I simply had to poach a test spray...

The top note is fruity and somehow toffee-like. I suspect amber as that often sports the same kind of pervasiveness.
Next the fragrance reminds me of the strange note of wet dog I find so typical for the Hermès Jardin fragrances and which I dislike. I'm not that keen on the smell of dogs even when they're dry.

So, ambrated wet dog.
I can't pair this up with the notes given: Aniseed? Well, perhaps it could be part of the wet dog smell, but that's no definite.
Jasmin? Nix. In the very first beginning I smelled something which reminded me of urine - should that have been the jasmin? If so, it snuck off quickly and thoroughly. That's lucky of course. A leaking wet dog would be too much.

Cassia - that should smell pleasantly like cinnamon and a bit like hay, but I can't smell any of that. What a pity.
Mandarin? Yes, but only the variety canned with syrup. Instead of being fresh and tangy it smells distinctively of cooked fruit with a metallic whiff from the can to boot. (Probably have been stored a few years past their best-before date...)
Sandalwood? Nope. Granted, that belongs in the base notes and they're not due yet.
Vanilla - a whiff, yes. Not obtrusive at all.
And cedar will probably become more pronounced in the base notes, but there's a whiff of pencil shavings noticeable already.

In Love Again Jasmin Étoile fades quickly, the wet Hermès dog straying on while the rest is dominated by canned mandarins and pencil. I don't get this fragrance at all. I would not even use it if someone gave it to me as it starts to give me a headache, too.

But then! Two and a half hours later, the heart note puts paid to canned mandarins and pencil shavings. Instead there is a resemblance to the Hermès Jardins fragrances. They too have this lovely and extremely foreign, no, this extraterrestial sweet flowery scent that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the notes listed. This lovely sweet flowery and arresting scent stays for hours, far into the faint but softly woody base note over which it hovers like a lovely UFO.

This fragrance is not for me, even if I am fascinated by the lovely alien flower scent. I'm not patient enough to sit through the wet dog and the canned mandarins until I like what I smell on my skin.
Im very very curious however what is this smell of wet dog turning into lovely alien flower. I'm sure it's nothing of the components usually given in fragrance note listings...
