Those who are familiar with JAR know that this brand is to perfumery just like a 1936 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic is to cars. A completely out of the world experience that's far beyond pure luxury and pleasure as we know them. JAR fragrances have the ability to drive you, within a single wearing, from heaven to hell and back. An experience that will redefine the sense of smell and the usual evaluating paramenters with no turning back.
Jarling makes no exception. What may sound as an average heliotrope soliflore, upon application delivers an extremely caleidoscopic blast of mimosa, almond, marzipan and star anise paired to challenging bitter undertones that bring to mind of cyanide and what I will call "vintage antibiotic syrup for children" (Baktrim anyone?). While all of the above sound disencouraging, Jarling is immediately ready to evolve into one of the most delicate almondy-mimosa-lilac centered fragrance ever created.Plush, sophisticated and, considering the price tag, extremely exclusive. By all means, a JAR.
Lovers of Apres L'Ondeè, take note. This is the final frontier.
Downside: Not as tenacious as one would expect from a JAR.
