PENHALIGON'S The Bewitching Yasmine

The yasmine is combined with other notes from the start: some coffee/cocoa and a slightly peppery cardamom.   

The drydown sweetens by adding a somewhat average tonka impression, and a nonspecific woodsy undertone comes and goes towards the end.  

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.  

The olfactory - not the pastiche-like stereotypical marketing and naming - concept is not badly designed, but this spring scent’s rather synthetic nature brings it down a few pegs to being quite average.  2.75/5
