Beautiful exciting jasmine fragrance. It fades moderately quickly, though.

Very lovely, but unfortunately, an instant headache for me. Reading the great reviews, I was eager to try my sample vial last night. Soooo pretty, really smelled nice -- but it was like an immediate icepick to my head.

Unfortunately, I just can't wear most of the pretty white florals -- gardenia, tuberose, jasmine, lily -- unless they're softened down considerably by other notes. Glam Jasmine is just too straight-up jasmine for me, I guess. So nice though -- it really is a wonderful scent.

Of the trio MK Glam Jasmine, Sporty Citrus, and Sexy Amber, I do own a bottle of the Sexy Amber, which is my favorite of the 3. It's much more to my taste than Glam Jasmine (I already wrote a review of Sexy Amber).

For jasmine, I guess I'll stick with my Jennifer Aniston -- which is a knock-off of Child, basically -- a light beachy jasmine with enough clean musk added that I don't get a headache. Or good old Casual by Paul Sebastian, a soft misty jasmine. Neither gives me a headache.

I know I'll try my Glam Jasmine sample a few more times. Hopefully I can make it work somehow. It really is such a pretty scent, esp for the approaching warm summer weather.

ADDENDUM 12/20/14: I tried this on at Belk yesterday and spent the rest of the day sniffing my test-spot. It smells just like Marc Jacobs Blush to me (now discontinued). A light innocent jasmine, to me -- not really glam, more girly, soft, and innocent. It didn't give me a headache yesterday. No desire to purchase this one.

I love this perfume! Get so many compliments on it. Light but strong enough to last all day! Cant explain in you need to get it if you love a hint of jasmine in your perfume.

I am usually not a floral fragrance fan but this one is very glamorous and sexy.
I love sandalwood scent and the fact that it's mixed with jasmin scent is wonderful. Sandalwood is the key ingredient for me, without it I would probably not purchase Glam Jasmine. I like the fact that this fragrance (oposite from Citrus and Amber) does not fade after few hours, it is long lasting.
Glam Jasmine costs $100 (100ml) or 50ml ($75) at Macy's.
I don't think it's worthy to pay $100 for perfume that smells like jasmin. There are many other options.

I tried this mainly because I can't walk past a perfume counter without smelling something. I was curious to see how it compared to the original MK tuberose-laden monster. Pretty similar, but with jasmine. It really is death-by-jasmine, but I love jasmine, so this isn't a problem. There isn't a lot more going on though, so it will be an occasional fragrance for me as I wouldn't want to smell jasmine all day, every day. The dry down is a soft woody-musk melange, allegedly sandalwood, not to my nose, but at least it isn't one of the harsh sandalwood synthetics. I prefer it to Acqua di Parma's Gelsomino Nobile, and it's an acceptable, much less expensive, alternative to Armani's Eclat de Jasmin.

This was love at first sniff! I'm an admitted jasmine lover, most of my perfumes have jasmine notes. This scent has a wonderful dry down and I was very surprised at the lasting power. Usually an hour after spraying, I can't smell the perfume I'm wearing. But Glam is different. It's still going strong in the afternoon but I spray it again just because I like it so much. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a beautiful floral scent that smells more glam than Golden Girl and lasts all day.

I think I'd like this better if it didn't have the sandalwood. It's a white floral that seems more casual than "glam." Meh.
