Jasmine, despite being a delicate flower, is an intense scent that can be donned by both sexes and is equally mysterious and inviting. Diptique’s Limited Edition Essences Insensées eau de parfum includes a rare type of jasmine: grown in Grasse, it isn’t picked until the autumn, at the very end of the season, when it has a sweet, fruity quality. Even though it has hints of orange blossom flower and basil, make no mistake, this fragrance will envelope you in a billow of jasmine.
Besides reminding me of the FKA twig’s tweet above, this luxurious scent makes me think of Liz Taylor, in her Richard Burton years. Delicate but intense.
