Jasmin is one of those uber present notes in so many fragrances, it gets many facets according to what you combine with it. So you get a raw, pungent and almost vegetable-like jasmin like AG's Le Jasmin (which I like, but I feel too gardener-like when I wear it), or a soft one (like the sadly discontinued Floris Night scented Jasmine, which was so comfy and warm, but, truly, a fake jasmin), or an indolic one and that's where I just can't do it (think of SL A la Nuit, for example).
TdC, on the other hand... well if you're a jasmin lover, you may not find "enough" of it here. Jasmin is blended with so many spices that all you can get of it is a soft undertone that keeps this fragrance from being a full out oriental. On the other hand, I really love spices and especially the cinnamon in this fragrance. It makes everything so... spectacular!
I also detect something cheerfully zesty here, like a winter spicy tea with some citrus in it, although it's very well disguised here.
This fragrance is a masterpiece for me, but just because I can't stand Jasmine per se and because I'm into spices. If only it lasted a little longer...

Kitchen spice and everything nice. Fades away too quickly.

I noticed after awhile something smelled cinnamony in the room-- it was me!
This is a subdued, non-animalic jasmine, the best parts of the flowery creaminess extracted and mixed with a very nice, easily enjoyable Oriental blend. It's a little sweet, it is interesting enough to be different. It honestly smells to my nose that it would be good on either male or female. It has just enough Oriental base to work on either sex.
It smells slightly mature to my nose, as in a frag that would work well for middle aged people 35+. It has a certain suggestive sobriety that's smiling and inviting you closer.
On me it smells delightfully other, it isn't something that screams "me" and probably would not purchase a FB for that reason. However it's very very well done, and would probably at least like a decant in the future at some point. Very sexy and enjoyable, not dirty, bizarre, odd at all but stimulating. Might have a slight bit too much "sweet amber" at the base for me? Perhaps that's my dissention. Not sure yet.
It isn't incredibly long lasting, is potent for about 2 hours, then starts the ambery base/drydown.

"Nuit"--yes. "Jasmin"--not entirely. This is a sweetly soft, balsamic, elegant floriental with a healthy dose of spices. The jasmine becomes noticeable after about five minutes, but this isn't a "death by jasmine" scent in the manner of A La Nuit or LUSH Flying Fox. It is, however, very noticeably natural jasmine and not a cheap synthetic, which probably explains the price. The overall feel is antique but not old-fashioned, if that makes sense. The bottle is satisfyingly heavy square glass with metal hardware and a screw-on lid (mine squeaks when I screw it in). Also, the juice is sunset-orange, so don't spray it on light clothes. I would firmly place this in the floriental rather than floral category, and it is exemplary in every respect except its brief staying power.

I absolutely love Jasmine de Nuit. When I sampled it at Barneys it made me think "hmm, this smells a lot like a natural perfume". Probably because there's a high concentration of natural essential oils in here. It's not your typical super flowery floral-in fact you have to sniff carefully to pick up the jasmine in here. Sometimes jasmine comes out a bit more prominently when I wear it, other times I smell only a creamy spicy skin scent. Sadly this doesn't last long on me at all, even if I spray it on my clothes. I wish they had a whole line of TDC body products so I could layer and make it last longer. It's also super expensive at $175 for the 90ml bottle. I have a feeling I'll use up the full bottle since you have to super soak in it in order for it to last longer than 15-30 minutes (and don't worry, I've tested this with the DH to make sure it's not just me that can't smell after 30 mins or so). I love it so much that I'm willing to work with it's lack of commitment. If the bottle weren't so damned heavy I'd just carry it around in my purse with me. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the metal nozzle off so I can decant into a small purse spray bottle. Sigh. Notes for this fragrance are: Egyptian jasmin, amber, blackcurrant, star anise, spices, cinammon, cardamom, sandalwood

Finally I can join the group who love and praise this fragrance. I made the mistake of always testing this fragrance in the Perfumarie on paper testers. I always test this way first and if the fragrance pass the test then skin here we go. I did this so many times and never applied it to my skin as the first sniff always turned me off. For the life of me, I could not understand why this fragrance was sold as Jasmin or loved by "Jasmin Lovers" and not me (I consider myself to be a Jasmin Lover by the way).
Thank god, I finally tried this on my skin and a whole new fragrance was born. After doing this, I did my days shopping and this was the end of this story. I came home with a bottle and found it a spot right next to my Annick Goutal Les Jasmin and Serge Lutens A la Nuit...hmmmm
It could be that this fragrance needs the warmth of the skin to develop and show its beauty. Straight from the bottle or on the paper testers it is sharp, over-spiced and just does not smell like a Jasmin soliflore. I do not think that this fragrance is a pure Jasmin but the name would suggest this. After this sits on my skin for about 1 minute it offers me pure love. The fragrance becomes so soft and the jasmin just lingers all around me like a slow blooming jasmin flower. The anise and spices adds warmth and depth. With every passing minute this fragrance becomes more beautiful.
This Jasmin cannot be compared to Annick Goutal Les Jasmin or Serge Lutens A la Nuite which are more what I would call cold (not very warm) Jasmin fragrances.
Definitely worth every penny and is BIG full bottle worthy. Good Silage and lasting power.

Well, I had high expectations on this frag....
Probably I was mistaken expecting a prominent Jasmine note (that I adore) .
This frag is not about jasmine, in the common way we re used to smell it, despite of the name!
So please do not expect a huge soliflore note coming out of this.
It is an interesting fragrance that smells subtle, clean.
Has a chypre/metallic start (reminds me of a very light "Rive gauche"), some very very little white flowers notes and a cosy drydown. Spiced? somewhat... but again not what you would expect, not straight spices.
I can smell some Damascus Rose in the drydown (a rose that has a cinnamon, spicy note) although it is not mentioned in the notes.
It is indeed well blended, and difficult to define appropriately. In anycase, I would have never christened it "Jasmin de Nuit". Nice to try, but not FB worthy. Low staying power.
bergamot, black currant, egyptian jasmine, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood, musk and amber.

I agree that this is reminiscent of Opium, although more modern and wearable even in warm weather. I bought a sample of Jasmin de Nuit along with other jasmines to try, and this is one of my favorites of the bunch, even though I really don't get much *jasmine* per se. It is more a spicy oriental that is composed around jasmine, and yet it isn't heavy or smothering, as the previous reviewer noted. If I were in the mood for a jasmine soliflore, I wouldn't reach for this. But this is so gorgeous that I might reach for it anyway. This is a really well blended, intoxicating, sexy fragrance. Notes include: Egyptian jasmin, amber, blackcurrant, star anise, spices, cinammon, cardamom, sandalwood. I want a full bottle.

Gorgeous! I love a spicy fragrance, and this is yet another one that I want. Spicy, wearable, feminine, sexy......love it. Usually cannot handle jasmine in any way, manner or form, but not so here. The jasmine is of the highest quality (so I understand) and extremely well-blended with the other yummy ingredients. What you've got then is soooo delicious, almost intoxicating in a non-smothering sort of way (if one can understand that)...........divine. Reminiscent of Opium (might be a stretch here) in a lighter, WAY better, and more modern way. Simply gorgeous.

When I first tested this, my impression was of a dense scent with jasmine and sweet spices. I thought it was pretty but maybe too heavy and "oriental" for my taste, and my little decant sat in a box for maybe a year. But I wore it recently and ended up taking a long walk on a warm day and was surprised that it didn't feel heavy at all, just sweet and gorgeous. There is even a subtle freshness to it, perhaps from the star anise. It's a lovely scent that really bloomed on my skin once I gave it a chance.

The first time I tried this was just after I read a review (somewhere) that said "If you like LUSH's All That Jasmine bathbomb, you'll love this!" I do like ATJ, so I got a sample of this and was very disappointed. I could barely smell any jasmin. Then a couple weeks later I came back and read jabell99's review where she listed the notes and thought I would give it another chance without expecting a jasmin scent. Loved it the second time around! Strange, I know. This reminds me a little of Opium, which was a signature scent for a friend in the 80's. But if I block out that association, I really enjoy this scent. This is one I definitely would only wear during cool weather. I think it would be suffocating in warm weather. Beautiful scent though. ETA: I wish I could give this 6 lippies too. I could bathe in this stuff! ETA: Loving this in the warm weather!

Jasmin de Nuit is a dense. oriental, spicy scent featuring jasmine as a thread that emerges most prominently in the drydown. Only then can I tell that I'm wearing a floral fragrance. The first spritz was like a time machine transporting me back to the '80s: I got a staticky vision in my head of a bottle of something I wore back then, something round, with a bow formed out of the glass..... beep-beep-boop-beep *static clears from screen* ... ALBERT NIPON! I loved it then, but since I like to confine specific scents to specific eras of my life, I had no interest in wearing it again. To be wearing its granddaughter is a bit disconcerting. On the plus side, this is the first scent with "jasmine" in the title that I've been able to wear, precisely because the jasmine is so diluted. The raggedy cinnamon blast subsides to a lickably sweet (but not candy-sweet) second-skin drydown. I will certainly go through the whole bottle, but doubt that I'll repurchase.

Warm, smokey & spicy jasmine, sensual & mysterious. Nice for evenings or cold weather. Love it!
Update~ I can't do jasmine indoles anymore, thanks Sarrasins!

This is a delicious floriental skin scent. It definitely reminds me of Musc Ravageur but lighter and without the medicinal harshness I find with MR. I've sampled quite a few jasmine fragrances but I have to honestly say that I don't get jasmine here. It is spicy/semi-sweet, but very well blended, giving it a soft, smooth effect on the skin. If you like Azurée Soleil or JM Blue Agava & Cacao, you might like this one as well.

What's not to love! Egyptian jasmine, bergamot, black currant, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood, musk and amber. And like Inez said, a little chocolate at the end. I would give this 6 lippies if I could and then subtract 1 for lack of staying power. I love it so much though, that I'm happy to spray again and again!

Well it's hard not to love what my nose recognizes as the love child of FM Musk Ravageur and Andy Tauer's Maroc pour Elle.Indeed in the openning Jasmin De Nuit has a lot of similarities with Musk Ravageur.A bright spice with a touch of herbal and just a litlle green nuances.As the spice becomes sweeter and the jasmine kicks in i'm in heaven.Although this is an oriental exuberant jasmine it stays firmly in the background,just in the shade of the fiery coloured spices.it does have a great lasting power and a good amount of sillage just like his parents.The drydown is deeep woody and resinous.This one goes to my wishlist because it's so very me!!!!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue
I'm going to say 'no' to the buy again question, but just because there are so many other fragrances out there that I like better. There's nothing wrong with this one. If you want to smell like anise. I don't.

I really wanted to like this scent since I do really like Jasmin and so far I only have rather light floral jasmin scents and I was looking for a more oriental take on it. This, however, is one of the few scents I have encountered so far that really makes me want and to scrub REALLY hard!!! (I am still resisting that urge to see if the late drydown is any better!!)I didn't smell any Jasmin at all!!! The only scent that I can get a sniff of is very harsh, pungent and cloyingly sweet spice which reminds me of those Yogi teas that u can get in health stores (which I DO like to drink btw) or those chewing gums; Big Reds is it?! While I do like cinnamon and spices in my food this smells awefully harsh and cloying and almost medicinal on me!! I can in fact not smell anything floral in there at all!!! So apparently the scent CAN go VERY wrong!!! I will maybe retry this at at some point but at the moment it just makes me want to hold my arm faar away and that's despite me not usually having strong (negative) reactions to perfume!!!

This was another sample I received from Luckyscent. It actually sat on my dresser for several weeks, untouched, because I was ambivalent about trying it. I generally find jasmine scents much too sweet and overpowering for my tastes, and they usually invoke a headache for me. I decided to give it a whirl today, and I am really glad that I finally tried it. This is NOT jasmine in its traditional, cloying, overwhelming form. This is a very spicy, dry, oriental, and mysterious jasmine. The jasmine is definitely there, but instead of going sweet and heady, it's tempered evenly by pungent anise, cardomom, and other spices of the Middle East and the Orient, and gentle basenotes of sandlewood and amber. Lovers of sweet white jasmine scents are probably not going to like this one, but gals who crave woodsy, spicy orientals definitely should give this one a try.
