Jasmine Absolute – Jasmine Grandiflorum (Egypt)
Renown as the Kind of flowers, our Egyptian jasmine absolute gives a sensual twist to perfumes.
We believe in procuring our materials directly from the source to ensure there is no adulteration and this absolute is extracted by a very close friend in Egypt. This batch is very special as my friend drove 6 hours to deliver the absolute to another friend who was travelling to meet us in Dubai.
We are able to offer at this attractive price as there are no middle men involved.
Botanical Name: Jasminum grandiflorum
Country of Origin: Egypt
Cultivation: Ethical Farmed
Extraction Method: Solvent
Jasmine grandiflorum absolute is very intense with extremely sweet floral notes. This beautiful oil also expresses a fresh, crisp, slightly fruity aroma with well-rounded femininity. The clear aromatic notes of Jasmine grandiflorum makes an exceptional ingredient for fine perfume blends, bath and body gels and lotions.
Jasmine grandiflorum absolute is extracted from un-bruised flower blossoms that are collected during the night when flowering occurs. The beautiful blossoms are far too delicate to process with steam distillation whereby the complete aroma of the flower is lost. To put this more into perspective, the same applies to grandiflorum as to its cousin sambac with approximately 8,000 carefully hand-picked blossoms being required to produce 1 gram (about 1 mL) of Jasmine grandiflorum absolute.
Fragrance notes: Floral, sweet, with slightly musky and tea/honey undertone
Blends well with: With virtually everything from floral, herbaceous, citrus, woody and spice oils.
