Forest Essentials Cologne Intense Madurai Jasmine
|Forest Essentials Cologne Intense Madurai Jasmine Review|
Last year, Forest Essentials came to Kolkata and I shopped a lot from them. A huge Forest Essentials that you need to see to believe. In fact, I also added more things that I purchased after my haul. In the past months, slowly I used them and reviewed them on Sweet And Bitter Blog. Some of their product was impressive, some not impressive enough for the price and few were just not cut out for me.
But, I forgot to share with you one of the gems of my purchase - Forest Essentials Cologne Intense Madurai Jasmine.
Price: Rs 3200 for 50ml
Packaging: Glass bottle with acrylic cap. Comes in a cardboard packaging with beautiful floral motifs on top. If you need to gift this then, there is no need to even pack it up.
Fragrance: It is true jasmine. Feminine, sultry, bold and classic. The fragrance is linear with the scent of white jasmine along with a whiff of freshness in it. As it dries down, all you are left with is bold jasmine. It is meant for evening and night outs. Unfortunately, most people link 'jasmine' with 'puja' so, I cannot say that is s*xy. It smells stronger and bolder than the Jasmine and Mogra bath and body products (like the shower gel or the bath oil) because there is no Mogra in it to mellow it down. But, those two can be used for layering this.
Silage: High. One spray is all you need. There is no need to cover all your pulse points unless you have applied it on a hot summer day.
Longevity: Lasts throughout the day but does not do much good in humidity. Hence, best of evenings or winter.
Overall: I love the fragrance and it stays on me the whole day. Can I complain? In fact, it is priced far less than the designer ones which have high longevity. Also, you need just one spray or at max two for each use so, this bottle will last long. If you love jasmine then, you need to try this. Also, I think that Forest Essentials should bring out more cologne. No?
And you know what? I think this can be a great Mother's Day gift. And as I said, no additional packaging needed!
You can also try my another personal favorite from Forest Essentials - Nargis Body Mist - though it is a body mist, it can give a tough fight to many EDTs and even EDPs!
