Sarah Baker Jungle Jezebel was created by Miguel Matos and launched in 2018. Taking its inspiration from cult film star and singer, Divine, it is as original and unique as the Divine is. It is not a perfume that is for everyone - opening with a tropical forest full of fruits, underlaid by animalics. When you are pairing bubble gum and civet, things are bound to get weird and kind of wonderful. Notes of bubble gum, banana, grapes, peach, sweet orange, tuberose, ylang, sandalwood, rose, amber, civet, vanilla, vetiver and tonka bean.
Sarah Baker Jungle Jezebel is an extrait.
Sarah Baker is an artist and founded Sarah Baker perfumes in 2015 after doing a project for Art and Olfaction in 2014.
Review of Sarah Baker Jungle Jezebel
Fragrantica - "Skanky, tacky and slutty."
Fragrantica - "This perfume is not just an hommage to Divine, it’s an event. Every spray is a deranged sticky funhouse ride that also manages to be stately, magnificent, and most shockingly of all: wearable...This is not a daily perfume, it’s for the hot sweaty nights you don’t tell your family about."
Fragrantica - "The opening is just marvelous. A fruity bomb full of banana, a note which is not used a lot un perfumery, with this synthetic-sweet vibe of the chewigum... Boom! Direct to your nose!!! Soon the character of the fragrance behind to change becoming more and more animalic, but very pleasant at the same time. The civet gets the protagonism of the fragrance together with the White and yellow flowers over a sweet background. The last phases of the perfume are for me very similar to civet by zoologist."
Fragrantica - " Jungle Jezebel was born from a place where people hold their head up high and they are unapologetically themselves. And before the artists who create beauty like this, before these artists who dare, I bow my head."
Fragrantica - "Jezebel opens with a loud bang of bubblegum and banana, much like the ones that I always consumed as a kid, then the tuberose comes out, and it feels like Miller Harris' Tuberosa. The civet is detectable but for me it gives off indolic atmosphere to the tuberose, just like indolic jasmine, except that it's civet. It was nothing, and I'm still waiting for the worst.
4 hours deep into the Jungle, the civet is now appear in all its glory... And it's beautiful."
