Jasmin Kama is an excellent showcase for Egyptian jasmine, which is richly animalic, slightly coarse, and fruity. The word Kama brings to mind thoughts of the Kama Sutra, and why yes, this is one seriously carnal scent!
A brilliant bergamot opens the show with a sour, bright citrus accent that fizzes violently enough to get your saliva glands working. A clutch of Egyptian jasmine blooms immediately begin to pump out a stream of inky, fecund indoles into the air, reminding the wearer that the aroma of jasmine is excitingly close to the smell of decay, sex, and rebirth. Heliotrope adds a powdery sparkle that balances out the inky, fruity jasmine, but earthy patchouli in the base drags jasmine further into the shadows. Simultaneously fresh and indolic, Jasmin Kama is a jasmine for those searching for a different take on this most sultry of white flowers.
