Sydney-based Grandiflora has launched Madagascan Jasmine, a new fragrance based on Stephanotis floribunda.
A true soliflore, Madagascan Jasmine beautifully captures the complexity of Stephanotis, which far surpasses the amorphous sweetness of lesser jasmines, presenting a floral both lusciously white and deeply green, fresh and yet heady, with a boldness appropriate for both the ingredient and the dynamic florist responsible for the Grandiflora line. Eschewing obvious choices, Madagascan Jasmine does not open with rote citrus notes, choosing instead to delve into the stemmy, green notes that represent the fullness of the Stephanotis plant, leading into the rich petals of the heart notes.
Madagascan Jasmine was developed by perfumer Michel Roudnitska.
Grandiflora Madagascan Jasmine is available now at Luckyscent, $185 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
