Ingredient Spotlight: Jasmine

white jasmine flowers and green leaves

Jasmine is one of our favorite materials.  The best (and most expensive) jasmine comes from France.  These delicate flowers must be picked by hand (at dawn to capture the peak of their fragrance output) and require over 8,000 blossoms to create 1 gram of absolute!

Olfactive Notes: rich white floral with green accents

Our Description:  Jasmine is a delicate, uplifting, optimistic floral note that leaves you wanting more.  Jasmine is light and breezy, not heavy or thick such as more dense florals like tuberose or gardenia. 

Used in:  Cashmere WoodPink Vetiver, White Orris, Cotton Flower, Silk Blush, Diorissimo (a classic soliflore (monofloral) perfume originally launched in 1956)
