Jasmine (Clair-Obscur), Keiko Mecheri
Keiko Mecheri's Jasmine, recently renamed Clair-Obscur - This is not your father's Oldsmobile or your mother's Jasmine. A very modern, crisp and clean blend of Sicilian night-blooming jasmine and jasmin absolut that is simply perfection.
One of the folks who hangs around Luscious Cargo pretty much all the time (and who's tried just about everything ever concocted and even a few things that haven't been) has adored this flower in her garden forever yet has never been able to stomach this flower in anything applied to her person. Nonetheless she fainted dead away upon first sniffing Mecheri's jasmine - and when she came to she thought she'd dreamed the whole thing; thought the bottle had been mislabeled; thought we were pulling her leg. Now she can't stop spraying the stuff and is driving us all a bit nuts. There's a conclusion to be drawn here; hopefully you'll all draw your own since we're clearly sleep-deprived.
