While I love an animal of jasmine, this lives on the opposite side of the field. Slightly sweet, earthy, almost powdery, but fresh. It’s a paradox of dark purple liquid and sunshiny jasmine. I find...

Edit: two years later, I’ve retested in the depths of winter and its a bit less sweet. Cool, smooth, strongly scented, leathery jasmine. A hint of sweetness (which references the grape below). I...

Oh you lucky ones to smell the beauty that escaped me. I sampled Sarrasins, La Vierge de Fer and De profundis at the Palais Royale Boutique and as everyone else who has been there, was told to...

According to the Serge Lutens official website, when Sarrasins is “applied at night in a Moorish silence, it barely touches the skin…” Sarrasins made its mark when I applied one spray to my dry,...

A powerful earthy apricot jasmine, yet paradoxically has a sweet airy quality that makes it quite an easy and optimistic wear for me (A La Nuit requires a little more commitment in my opinion)....

I agree with KelseyP below, this never gets to the swooning, beautiful part on me. I'm not a fan of Jasmine so there's that but also I'm a novice in learning about perfume and maybe don't have the...

Excellent jasmine-based fragrance. But not your average jasmine, mind you! it's rich, deep, cloying, skanky. Definitely indolic (and you may want to consider this carefully, as indolic may not be...

Jasmins playing good cop/bad cop. One facet of it is airy, sunny friendly jasmin while the other is lush and indolic - unfortunately, I don't get on well with indoles. These two facets take turns...

Sarrasins is predominantly jasmine. This isn't the soft, innocent white jasmine of À La Nuit, but a big, syrupy sweet jasmine, and the juice is a shockingly rich grapey purple. Underneath the sweet...

Imagine you are going horse riding and before you go you spray on a good quality jasmine. After about a hour of heavy riding you get home. You are damp, sweaty, and smelling of leather saddles. ...

A poetic, beautiful, yet melancholy, sad jasmine. Like the jasmine you would smell in between sobs and tears streaming down your face. This is a very dramaticly pretty fragrance, to be worn when...

I must say that I am first drawn to Sarrasins because of the inky juice, but this is now my favourite jasmine. I find it deeper, darker and more sensual than offerings like A la Nuit and Jasmine de...

Sarrasins struck me as an astonishingly beautiful, true-to-life jasmine which smells purer than TDC Jasmine de Nuit, truer than Keiko Mecheri Jasmine, more intoxicating than Montale Jasmin Full,...

Wow, I have been waiting for over an hour for the indoles to calm down and to smell the beauty of what everyone else is reviewing - this is all skanky indoles on me. If I brush my arm past my face...

this is my first review. I bought this in the store in Paris, when I was there to get Un Lys for a friend. I immediately loved the heady jasmine intensity of the opening notes and it did not take...

Sarrasins is a swooningly beautiful perfume. It is. And it is clearly made from quality materials, and has fantastic depth and sillage. It's not your typical white floral-- neither airy, shorn of...

When Sarrasins first came out a few years ago, I seem to remember that the most common reaction was a great big yawn. Most seemed to think that it was pretty but boring, and the rest found it too...

EDITED: I re-tried A La Nuit after this review, and I was mad. A La Nuit is GORGEOUS. Please take every bad thing I've ever said about it in comparison to Sarrasins with a saltcellar. I've...

A serviceable jasmine fragrance. I don't notice any particularly inky quality, which is a good thing, since I've never thought, "Oh, how I wish I could smell like ink!"

Opens with jasmine, and mostly says "white floral" to me. I am not a fan of many florals. Interesting fragrance, as all the SL's are, and I'm sure some will find this appealing. I prefer the...
