Native to India and South eastern Asia although now it has adapted to more gentle terroir and is seen to grow easily in Mediterranean, North African and Iran, Afghanistan and Kashmir. Most of jasmine grandiflorum is grown and extracted in Egypt nowadays. Soft white and pink flowers exude this classical aroma known and loved by many, both male and female. The flowers are collected in the early morning similar to the J sambac and solvent extraction is carried out shortly afterwards to maximise yield of the oil. Its aroma profile is intense, floral, warm with a tea note underneath. Molecular structures that contribute to the jasmine’s animalic notes are indole and cis-jasmone but its greatest asset is benzyl acetate.
Same uses and therapeutic properties as J. sambac although the grandiflorum has a different more, dry scent, the anmalic not can be off putting to those sensitive to it. Used extensively in male and female fragrances.
