Jasmine is one of those perfume ingredients that can be played in many keys, depending on the pitch wanted — high, green and fresh, or low, indolic-dirty, and languid. Tom Ford's Jasmine Rouge/Private Label starts off like a fine glass of champagne, with a bubbly effervescence courtesy of an aldehyde-driven bergamot and mandarine. As it develops with piquante neroli, languid-to-tropical, waxy ylang-ylang, and warming, beguiling spices, Jasmine Rouge seems to explode into variations on jasmine's richness and lightness. Towards the end, balsamic notes of vanilla and amber combine with a subtle woodsy-leather accord to wrap sparkling jasmine in their warm embrace, like a leather jacket on top of delicate, bare shoulders.
