Jasmin de Coree by Babani c1920

Jasmin de Coree by Babani: launched in 1920. The name means "Korean jasmine" in French.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a soft floral fragrance for women with a dominant jasmine note. I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like. It was described as a "provocative odor" and "delicately, subtly sweet. The perfume of youth".
  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: jasmine
  • Base notes:

These fragrances lend themselves so well to the European manner of using perfume — of blending perfumes to suit your mood and costume.  Blend two or more Babani perfumes to create a personal perfume formula, a new fragrance which no one can identify or imitate, that will emphasize your interesting complexity, will seem to vary as your charming moods, and yet be essentially you. It was suggested that you blend Jasmin de Coree with Fleurs d'Annam and Sousouki.


Harper's Bazaar, 1925:

"Jasmin de Coree: the soft caressing fragrance of jasmine flowers. The perfume comes in several bottles, priced from $2.75 and up. This bottle is of frosted glass with a gold neck and stopper of coral red. The box is black satin with red piping. $8.50."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown.
