It is considerably more indolic than Jasmin Rouge for sure. (FWIW, I find Olene to be more indolic than JR.) You definitely need to try it; I am pretty confident you'll like it.
Pre-shower: Caron Or et Noir. This is an old school rose chypre. It's got a lush, velvety rose at the top, but it's also sharpened by a bit of geranium. As it dries down, it becomes quite mossy.
SOTD: L'Arte di Gucci. This is a bright green, aldehydic rose chypre. It actually reminds me a fair bit of Leonard de Leonard, accept that the latter is more powdery and sweeter (i.e., more girly).
