"Yasmak is of a freshness without equal, it is a true secret of the Harems."
So what does it smell like? It is described as "exotic, brilliant" and a Syrian perfume, so I am assuming that it is an oriental fragrance for women. But I would need a sample to tell you what it really smells like.

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. All Babani perfumes will combine in fragrant harmonies.
It was suggested "in moods of fondness for adventure and attention" that you blend Babani's Yasmak with Afghani. Or "for softer moments", Babani's Yasmak with Sousouki.

"Le "Yasmak" est d'une fraîcheur sans égale, c'est un véritable secret des Harems. ... Maurice BABANI, 98 bis, BOULEVARD HAUSSMANN, PARIS."
