Extrait: Jasmine Absolute - The King of Flowers.
Production: Solvent extraction from concrete of jasminum officinalis.
Use in Perfumery: Traditionally used in the finest compositions with rose and neroli to provide classical floral heart. Will enhance almost any feminine blend and in lower doses almost any masculine fragrance. Quite intense heady floral character with fruity green backnotes. Its long dry out period helps the persistence of other floral scents in a blend.
Safety: Normal Usage
Comment: Another indispensable oil for the natural perfumer. Like vanilla, synthetically ‘enhanced’ jasmines are so prolific that many people don’t like it until they come across the real thing, which has a depth and complexity that if used in the right proportions is magical. Remains inimitable.
