BULGARI 'MON JASMIN NOIR' FRAGRANCE
We recently headed off to an exclusive Bulgari presentation day at one of Lisbon”s 5* destinations, the Pestana Palace Hotel, where we were introduced to the sumptuous new fragrance, Mon Jasmin Noir. The fragrance is a contemporary and youthful take on the classic Jasmin Noir, based on an imaginary flower (“black jasmine”) evoking the versatility and mysterious character of jasmine, which is able to express a variety of different and contrasting scents.
At the presentation we were able to explore the fragrance note by note; from the leading citrus tones of Golden Cedrat and the freshness from Lily of the Valley combined with a floral range from both “Angel Wing” and “Sambac” jasmine, to the base notes of light musk and vibrant woods, such as cedar and patchouli, with enveloping tones of musky nougatine to finish.
Taking inspiration from the prestige and luxurious style of Italian jewellery, Mon Jasmin Noir is presented in a gracious reinterpretation of the classic Jasmin Noir bottle, developed with rounded lines and a delicate luminosity shining from its transparent faces. The luxurious golden lid is capped with a black organza, giving a true online casino feel of the sophistication and luxury of the fragrance. The golden bottleneck is then tied with a sensual ribbon of black organza and features a golden plate marked with the Bulgari logo.
The wonderful actrice Kirsten Dunst was chosen to front the campaign for Bulgari Mon Jasmin Noir, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in a unique scenario mixing nature and culture, inspired by the theme “Bulgari”s Mediterranean Eden”: a mythical place where history, fantasy and dreams combine. A classic Italian garden of the 16th Century is transformed into an almost imaginary scene of enchantment and seduction featuring Kirsten Dunst with one of the strongest and most beautiful symbols used by the Bulgari brand: the lion.
Mon Jasmin Noir is available now in sizes 25ml, 50ml and 75ml with an elegant “Mon Jasmin Noir Scintillating Body Lotion” available in 100ml.
