Chattem Love's Musky Jasmin Perfume
Introduced 1974 by Menley & James, then licensed to MEM and then to Chattem around 1983 - Feminine
Notes: Jasmine and musk
Love’s Musky Jasmin Flower is an alluring and sensuous fragrance that debuted somewhere around 1974 to 1975. The original version was by Menley & James. It was licensed to MEM and then to Chattem around 1983. I have seen newspaper advertisements for it from 1974 to 1989.
The MEM and Chattem versions stayed very close to the original wonderful scent that Menley & James produced and it appears the word flower was dropped off when it was distributed by MEM. When Dana purchased the company, unfortunately the formulation was changed drastically. Not too many bottles of this pop up for sale and since it was a well-loved fragrance, the prices are very high compared to any other Love’s fragrances. This is the only perfume I have ever seen for sale. It came in a small 12ml bottle. It is dark purple glass with a silver cap.
From an advertisement - "Like an intriguing woman, the potent, intoxicating jasmine flower blooms only at night, and is the most expensive flower available. The result—a voluptuous floral that defines femininity. A very womanly, romantic, rich, sensual scent of pure jasmine that defines femininity strengthened by the lasting depth of musk."
Love’s Musky Jasmin has been discontinued however Dana Classic Fragrances offers a Soft Jasmine scent (sadly nowhere near as gorgeous).
This is the original Chattem perfume version of the fragrance.
