Scent of the Week: Jasmine Absolute Préparation by Ostens

This week I’m mostly wearing the euphorically beautiful Jasmine Absolute (IFF-LMR) Préparation by Ostens.

Smelling this perfume oil, one would not believe that it only contains 1.5% Jasmine Absolute! It packs a punch and a beautiful one at that. This is a deliciously full jasmine that has a multitude of facets. Yes, it smells like hot jasmine flowers, but it also has a cool banana nuance that is evocative of ylang-ylang and a warm, breathy tone that is somewhat intimate. It can be worn under the Jasmine Impression from Ostens or any other fragrance of your choice, but personally I like it straight up – it’s just so good on its own. Now, I don’t really like perfume oils, let me tell you, but I sure as heck do like this.
