Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette is the twilight zone, the banned, the addiction. Intentionally unsettling, it has a definite vintage feel to it. It is the era of the grand silver screen when men and women magnetised with a Hollywood look in their eyes, smoking a cigarette in a smoky black and white ambiance. A clash of the elegant and the improper, just a trace of jasmine is mingled with the so far neglected smell of a cigarette.Award: Best Strange Fragrance from Luca Turin (Perfumes: The Guide).

Made in France

The brazen Jasmin et Cigarette by Etat Libre d’Orange shocks with the initial forwardness of its name – only to reveal a gorgeous harmonisation between pure white jasmine flower and the ashy trails of tobacco, coating the flower in a background puff of smoke, emphasising its pristine purity. It fascinates with its clashing of the sacred and profane, confronting the aesthetic and moral sensibilities that prescribe how we should – and shouldn’t – smell. Imagine film noir, the era of pinstripes, big fur coats, shadows on faces and smoky hazes. A Hitchcock blonde femme? A hardboiled detective? Its jasmine and tobacco notes are tied together with the blushing and ripe warmth of apricot, festooned in a nest of sunwarmed hay. This is one big narcotic effect, a dizzyingly good length of realistic jasmine trailing along humid heat and air - its radiance is marvellous.

[Review of Jasmin et Cigarette EDP Sample Vial]

I LOVE this scent and am disappointed it never seems to be in stock more than 5 minutes, no matter how many wait lists I am on. Please put one aside for me, Men’s Biz!

This is one of my favourite scents. The 'tobacco' hits me immediately, not unpleasant by any means, not instantly smoky, more like a cool menthol. The cool menthol stays as a prominent top note. The jasmine underpins it beautifully, the scent is by no means floral, not at all.

This is very Marlene Dietrich sitting in a club, smoking, arched eyebrow, ignoring everyone around her. Beguiling everyone.

Maybe actually more film noir, I think. Lana Turner, Barbara Stanwyck or even Janet Leigh, it's very Hitchcock Blonde.

The menthol is the slap of a cream leather glove on your face and the jasmine is the subtle chide that it couldn’t have really hurt……

I love this!

[Review of Jasmin et Cigarette EDP Sample Vial]:

I had to try it although I knew it wouldn't be for me. I'm glad I got a sample and so is my friend Jaime, she is head over heels in love and planning to buy a bottle. It's equal parts fancy and trashy, with a distinctly feminine edge. Superb, wonderful, glorious, I absolutely love it on her.

It's 1930 and the elegant Doll dressed in her Black & White Chanel Suit sits by the bar smoking her Cigar whilst listening to the soulful tunes of the piano and the lingering scent of Jasmine entwines perfectly with seductive tobacco notes captivating the attention of all around her.
