The Sephora Disney Jasmine Collection for Spring 2013 includes the Sephora Disney Jasmine A Whole New World Eau de Parfum ($58 USD / $70 CAD for 50mL), a floral, musky fragrance with hints of sweet and fruity notes. This limited-edition collection experiences the magical story of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin with vibrant, exotic colors and rich elegance. Available March 2013 exclusively at Sephora.
Each one of the Sephora Disney Jasmine Collection items comes with a quote- and the one for this mirror is “Have a wish, or two, or three“. This fragrance will also available in a Perfumed Oil Rollerball ($19 USD / $22 CAD).
The bottle is pretty much identical to the So This Is Love perfume from the Cinderella Collection. The only difference is that the perfume has a purple tint to it, and the decal sticker on the front of the bottle is a “J” instead of a “C”(for Jasmine, instead of Cinderella).
The fragrance is a lot different from the Cinderella one…I find that Jasmine’s A Whole New World has more character to it while Cinderella’s was very simple (it really smelled like fresh, clean soap and water). This fragrance has an intricate floral and musky palette, with an opening blend of carnation and orange blossom, giving way to gardenia and cedar wood, and finally topping it off with vanilla and amber. It’s a much more ‘deep’ scent (I know I’m not the best at describing fragrances)… something that I would wear on a date night instead of during the day.
Personally I prefer the Cinderella fragrance simply because I enjoy the clean, fresh fragrances more than heavy, musky ones… but I know that fragrance is such an individual preference that there will definitely be some people out there who prefer this one. All I can really say is they are very different, and this one has much more body and depth to it- so if that sounds like something you would like, be sure to check it out when it comes to Sephora next month!
