Jasmine IS the cornerstone of perfumery! A perfectly unisex note, present in an impressive percentage in so many perfumes, for so many years. It’s always been talked about among perfume lovers: Le Fleur, The Flower is always discussed.
A source of inspiration or a challenge to excel for many a perfumer, used since forever in fragrances in so many different ways.
I have smelled many a different jasmine, in many a fragrance. And then, after a long time and all the finest (or less so) interpretations, I came upon one that made me stop right in my tracks: Fado Jasmim by Miguel Matos Perfumes.
What has jasmine to do with Fado? Everything.
