We love discussing perfume here at Who What Wear, and it’s no secret that popular olfactory notes like vanilla, rose, gardenia, and lily of the valley make up some of our favorite (and, historically, the most covetable) fragrances on the market. Another ultra-popular addition? Jasmine, which, along with rose, is considered a “foundation stone of perfumery.” In other words, almost every bottle of perfume you come across in this life will contain at least one or the other.
As it turns out, there are over 200 species of jasmine, and it’s widely credited for the inherent richness and intensity it can lend a fragrance. Of course, depending on the notes it’s paired with, jasmine can instantly transform into something verging on green and crisp or just as easily into something enveloping and musky. As an ode to the flower, we’ve found 10 of the best jasmine perfumes that smell beautiful, luxurious, and, yes, very expensive. (Because hey, sometimes it’s the little things even if you’re just donning sweats for the day.) Keep scrolling for all of our jasmine-containing favorites plus some additional honorable mentions along the way.
