Description of Jasmine Essential Oil:
The absolute is a dark orange-brown, viscous liquid with an intensely rich, warm, floral scent and a tea-like undertone. Jasmine has a powerful, heady fragrance that some people find overwhelming, although once diluted it becomes more subtle. The perfume is strongest at night, hence its Indian name of "queen of the night", so night-time is also the best occasion to harvest the flowers. Jasmine has sweet, floral, exotic top notes and heady, warm honeyed undertones. It blends well with frankincense, neroli, cypress, verbena, melissa, rose, rosewood, sandalwood, clary sage and all citrus oils. It has the ability to round off any rough notes and blend with virtually everything.
