Penhaligon’s The Bewitching Yasmine Fragrance Overview

Penhaligon’s The Bewitching Yasmine Eau de Parfum begins with a mixture of cardamom, wealthy vanilla, and occasional with smoky incense and delicate jasmine, which reads spicy, candy, and nutty. The oud joins the scene and will get amplified all through the remainder of the wear and tear, shining essentially the most about midway via after which turning into dominant (however the depth dropped) within the drydown paired with the vanilla.

It opened with an fragrant, spicy-sweet cardamom with splash of wealthy vanilla over heat espresso. Inside a couple of minutes, tendrils of smoky incense body the cardamom-coffee duo and the vanilla thickens, extra like a syrup swirled within the espresso. There was a delicate floral attribute (that I’d guess was the jasmine sambac) that lightened the sweetness with out actually muting it.

About quarter-hour into the fragrance’s growth, the oud made a grand entrance, including its candy, smoky, and woody, and it enhanced the sense of incense alongside spicy cardamom, espresso, and vanilla. It additionally appeared muskier, nearly chilly regardless of the heat of the spicy cardamom and vanilla. The oud strengthens over the subsequent few hours in opposition to the vanilla with the spice shifting subtly. The drydown was softer, smoother, and heavier on the oud with faint traces of heat vanilla.


For testing, I used half of a 1ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case. 


It lasted for seven hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been reasonable and began to close-in after three hours of damage.

Private Ideas

It took me shock! After attempting just a few renditions of fragrances with espresso notes, I didn’t have as excessive of expectations on this one, and whereas it undoubtedly wasn’t a coffee-dominant fragrance, I did get a pleasant combo of cardamom and occasional that overlooked a few of the harsher elements of the cardamom on my pores and skin–it was extra balanced. I additionally loved the addition of oud and the way jasmine was delicate to my nostril. I can’t say that it instantly made me wish to go purchase a full bottle, not to mention on the worth level it’s at, however I’ll be re-wearing my pattern sooner or later!
