had to be the ultimate in femininity. As time went on, I started to see the draw of jasmine, a middle note of No. 5, which seems to be my Achilles Heel of scents.
I was at JFK about to board a plane to Germany in the Fall of 2008 when I came upon Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir at the Duty Free shop. Liking the smell from the bottle, I sprayed a bit on myself and then hopped the flight. 6 hours of being cooped up in the plane later, I could still smell this scent. It's different from No. 5, warmer and homier somehow and it lingers in a way that's not heavy handed or overwhelming. Long story short, I had discovered a new signature fragrance. To this day, I love it, even if I do leave it mainly for night time as it is a slightly naughty fragrance.
I like it so much that I even bought the shower gel. I've been using it for those special nights out for almost 2 years. It helps to layer the scent and has a nice, yummy texture. It's liquid and probably a smidge harsher than my normal soaps but it smells so nice.
I've had two occasions lately that called for the shower gel. Two Saturdays in a row, as a matter of fact.Both times, I have noticed a red rash on my arms, chest and neck. Could I be allergic to my shower gel? And why would it happen all of a sudden? Why am I having such a horrible time with soap lately?
I wonder if I can find a more natural, less chemically soap that smells something like Jasmin Noir?
