Jasmine is, with the rose, in terms of fragrant and heady species, one of the two queen flowers of perfumery. The usually yellow or white flower grows on a shrub belonging to the Oleaceae family. It is a flower that scents a lot, but it can be orchestrated differently by the perfumer, either treated as a sensual, extroverted, intoxicating flower or even worked into a delicate flower. To get one kilogram of absolute jasmine essence, you need to collect around seven million flowers. Suffice to say that natural jasmine is expensive, reserved for luxury perfumes, most of which themselves prefer to use a synthetic version.
