Alter is another way to see jasmine, the jasmine of sensuality and seduction. With a little bit of mimosa and a hint of animal mystery, the formula contains a very high percentage of natural sambac jasmine absolute. The sambac jasmine, together with a rose hearth and an incense background, create a very luxurious, long-lasting fragrance that's guaranteed to "turn heads."
NOTES: Jasmine sambac, rose, frankincense, mimosa, animal accord, incense, opoponax
RIYL: Rich, heady florals

Just received and tried my sample of Alter, which I am loving so much. A great and intriguing use of jasmine sambac, which dries down to a delicate veil of floral and incense notes on my skin. This is a beautiful jasmine fragrance for cooler weather. Full bottle worthy, in my opinion. Love the sample options from Indie Scents!

The Sammarco fragrances are all very high quality, rich, and long lasting. I don't often enjoy jasmine, but I love it here. It's not sour or harsh, even with the animalic musk added to it. It's like a dry jasmine incense, sweet and yellow, with dark musk and sweet, resinous opopnax and frankincense. Jasmine in a church, surrounded by incense and resins, with a dark, sultry underpinning.

The Jasmine is indolic and intoxicating. The mimosa is fresh, and beautiful. The base notes of opoponax, myrrh, incense, civet and rose makes this unforgettable. The silage is very low after the opening blast and lonevity is ok. Wish it had better silage for the price.
