Jasmine- Spring Floral Blend

Need some Spring inspiration? Try Jasmine

There are more than 200 species of jasmine cultivated in the subtropics worldwide. In addition, the most important commercially cultivated species used for essential oil production are Jasminum auriculatum, which is native to southern India; Jasminum grandiflorum, which is native to Iran, Afghanistan, and Kashmir, and has been introduced and is commercially cultivated in many countries, principally around the Mediterranean, and Jasminum sambac, which is native to southern India and has a long history of cultivation in India and is commonly referred to as mogra. (Battaglia, 2018; p. 344).

One of my personal favorite species is Jasminum sambac.

Variations of Jasmine Flower Extractions* Jasmine Absolute, India Use: Natural Perfumery. Intensely floral, very sweet, tenacious, with a deep richness and a somewhat musky and coumarin-like undertone.

Jasmine Sambac Absolute Use: Natural Perfumery. Green and somewhat fruity initial aroma with a rich floral/honey/tea undertone, turning sweeter in the dry down; not as sweet as our other Jasmine Absolutes from India and Egypt.

Jasmine CO2 Use: Natural Perfumery. Very sweet, floral, slightly fruity, and tea-like, with a delicate, ethereal aroma and a hint of indole undertone.

Jasmine Organic Extract Use: Aromatherapy / Natural Perfumery. Exquisite, extremely rich, voluptuous floral, with very sweet fruity peach-like headnotes; softer and much greener than absolutes of Jasmine with the most true-to-nature Jasmine flower aroma.
