Le Labo Jasmin 17 was created by Maurice Roucel and launched in the main launch of this line. If you are looking for a big, indolic, stinky jasmine, this really isn't it. It is a nice, pretty fragrance that is more interesting than a lot of mainstream scents ... well, because it is a lot more orange blossom. A little green very uncomplicated. Anecdotal information reports that when men come to the Le Labo counter to pick something for a woman, this is very often what they buy. Checks out -it is made to make you feel really pretty
It is a floral woody musk and has notes of neroli, bigarade, jasmine, orange flower, amber, musk, sandalwood and vanilla. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
Reviews of Le Labo Jasmin 17
From Makeup Alley - "This is my Holy Grail scent. I'm on my 5th bottle. I will not go deeply into scent descriptions since it has been covered so well in previous reviews. This scent evokes a feeling for me. When I wear it I feel happier, energized, uplifted. I always get compliments on this scent. I will forever have it in my collection."
From Best Things in Beauty - "I had expected a more typical jasmine fragrance - a voluptuous white flower, heady and sensuous. What I smelled was entirely different. With its heavy emphasis on vanilla, I had discovered jasmine ice cream in a fragrance. It took me a day or two to get over the surprise and begin to appreciate this soft fragrance for what it is, not what I had expected."
From The Non-Blonde - "The thing about Le Labo's take on jasmine is that it's not a celebration of passion-crazed wood creatures and dragonflies you often find in jasmine perfumes. There's something lively and easy-going about it, almost innocent but not quite. Jasmin 17 doesn't resort to the predictable cliches of too much citrus, too green, too fresh or watery, yet it's never heavy. This perfume is sweeter and more skin-conscious than florals tend to be, as Charleston Girl aptly put it, it's almost like a jasmine-flavored ice cream. The ambery base of sandalwood-vanilla makes it irresistible to me; it's sensuous and smooth, bright and sunny but also hiding an incredible depth. Despite the contradictions in its nature and the notes that are sometimes controversial (if you pay close attention you'll also smell the unmistakable indoles), Jasmin 17 is also very wearable. Not only that, it's a happy perfume, one that can instantly brighten one's day."
