Zesty citrus mix blended with a lush, green leaf accord, with bright cardamom and invigorating mint.
The heart is a field of assorted flowers: Indian jasmine, mimosa, with a faint sunflower accord, rounded out with juicy mangoes.
The base is an urban jungle of gritty cedarwood, sharp incense, and metallic ambrox.

I purchased the Mixtape Sample Set years ago, and out of all the scents, Neon Graffiti is the one that earned me the most attention - every time I wore it, someone asked what it was!
Finally purchased a full size bottle and it has now become one of my signature fragrances.
The cedar and incense give this a spiciness and weight that helps ground the citrus and herbal notes. I've never smelled anything like it, and love how it smells on me.
Such a unique pleasure to wear!
I'm so glad you connected with Neon Graffiti, Kat! Thank you <3
To me, this is the scent of the Manhattan flower market at 5 AM: trucks rolling in, throwing damp cardboard boxes on the curb, little fertilizer packets to go, steamy bodega coffee, auxins everywhere, the air heavy and the sun still behind the horizon, flowers fresh off a plane wrapped up in kraft paper and sealed with a staple and a slippery credit card receipt. It's so unique and I love it.
Thank you Adrienne, I love this so much! Dana x
My favorite Jazmin Sarai scent (and others like it too apparently because it’s often sold out!). Neon Graffiti is bright, elevated, and unique!
I waited 6 years to purchase this fragrance. Since I first smelled Neon graffiti, I came across other niche brands like CDG, Olympic Orchids, Fiele Fragrances, Jorum Studio, Zoologist, and Amouage. Not many of them have been able to recreate the smell of the crisp fresh air of a Devonian garden. There is a synthetic element but that's not in a bad way. It helps remind you of the rain in an urban concrete jungle, sort of reminiscent of petrichor. The ambroxan meshes beautifully with incense, cedar, and ivy to create a woody backbone that persists until the end. At first, I thought the performance was poor but this actually lasts two days on clothing. I think the ambroxan or one of the notes was making me anosmic. Overall, the performance is decent and you'll get two hours of moderate projection then it'll wear closer on your skin. I'll spray Neon Graffiti on my clothing so I can get whiffs of it throughout the day. This scent perfectly captures the humidity that's trapped within an indoor greenhouse. Neon Graffiti belongs on my top 10 fragrances of all time. Visit FSOCI3TY at Basenotes to read my review of this fragrace.
Thank you so much, Shane!
Smells are a hotline to memory
But Neon Graffiti first made an impression as an ode to Snow.
Sugary powder freshly pattered outside a window.
Glittering with sunlight
Lit like the Crown Jewels in prismatic colors
Neon graffitied sheets of white
A mist of flavoured citrus fills the pallet of senses
as the parfum becomes one with an ode to Snow.
