Botanical name:Jasminum grandiflorum. Aroma:Floral, rich, sweet and warm, exquisitely exotic and graceful. Some describe it as"tea-like", and its dried flowers are used to flavor black tea.
Jasmine is called the King of Flowers (Rose being the Queen), and indeed this is probably the most masculine of all the floral aromas, especially the Jasmine Sambac, which is more musky, spicy, mysterious and exotic than the Jasmine grandiflorium. Jasmine grandiflorium is softer, more gentle and floral.
Jasmine grandiflorum is more widely known and is frequently found in gardens all over the world. It blooms in the early dawn, whereas Jasmine Sambac blooms at night.
The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Jasmine Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba Oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").
