Each year since 2014, Diptyque has launched a limited-edition fragrance inspired by the quality of the harvest of a specific ingredient as part of its Essences Insensées collection. In 2015, the featured ingredient was jasmine, hence the name  Essences Insensées 2015, which I call Essences Insensées 2015 (Jasmine) to differentiate it from other fragrances in the Essences Insensées collection

 Of Essences Insensées 2015 (Jasmine) the Diptyque website says:  “After mimosa in 2014, jasmine provides the inspiration for this new opus. A very special kind of jasmine. Grown in Grasse, at the centre of the perfume industry, it isn’t picked until the autumn, at the very end of the season, when it has a fruity, almost candied quality."

A.Very. Special. Kind. Of. Jasmine. Sold.

It opens sweet and heady with aromatic, orange blossom, the warmth of my skin making it deeper and richer, as it teases the indolic, opulent and lush jasmine up through it. As it blooms, there’s a subtle soapiness that appears just before it gets all fruity (I smell pear and banana and strawberry) and honey-sweet and jammy – it’s the candied fruit quality described on the website. As this passes, a note of basil shows up and adds an herbal, green dimension to the fragrance.  It all quiets down to a sensuous skin scent that reflects the fleeting fragrance of jasmine in the fields of Grasse in the autumn.

Basically, Essences Insensées 2015 (Jasmine) is a soliflore – a beautiful jasmine fragrance with supporting notes that let the jasmine shine.

And the light, wafting scent of true jasmine in Essences Insensées 2015 (Jasmine) is especially irresistible to me.

Notes: Jasmine, orange blossom flower, basil.
