Reviews of D.S. & Durga Jazmin Yucatan
From Colognoisseur - This is an indole-laden jasmine. It is what you smell when you find the real thing. Mr. Moltz then adds two modulating ingredients which work well. First a layer of passionflower takes the floral component of jasmine and gives it some more oomph. Clove finds a spicy harmony with the indoles. What this captures is that slightly piquant scent of the earthy jungle floor. The humidity also turns waterier as the surface of the cenote becomes more present...This is a beautifully realized perfume of a jasmine in the tropical jungle. It is also different enough from most other jasmine perfumes that if you are a fan it is worth checking out. I adore it because it captures a cherished memory of twilight at the cenote."
From Fragrantica - "Underneath these 'pretty' aspects, however, there's a sort of funkiness that keeps things interesting. I don't know if this is an indolic byproduct of the jasmine or something else, but the blurb isn't lying: there is a suggestion of say, the flamingo enclosure at the zoo, of water as part of the biome. there is a sense that animals live here. This should not be appealing, but it absolutely is."
