The Bottle: Its suspicious similarity to a tribeswoman with an alarmingly stretched out neck aside, this is a fairly classic looking bottle. Attractive, distinctive and alluringly proportioned. ****

The Scent: A top-heavy melon scent, which makes it a predictable failure for me. Particularly when that melon is tinged with dusky magnolia, and gives way to what can only be described as a barrage of jasmine-singed musk. Despite the presence of a great deal of fruit, and a theoretically charming trio of plum, violet and blackberry lurking in the background, this never sweetens into anything enticing on me, but instead simply falls flat. After the initial melon bullet loses its sting, J’adore collapses, and hangs around for hours as a rather confusing and under-developed floral melange. **
