I LOVED this scent. It is a combination of Jasmine and Tea. To me it was almost EXACTLY like Harney and Son's Dragon Pearl Tea which I always loved. I was very pleased with the scent especially when I saw how well it mixed with other essential oils!
I actually found Jasmine sambac to be a bit sickly sweet at first. Straight out of the bottle anyway. But have since found it to be indispensable in blends. Oh how its petals unfold alongside Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, orange... No wonder it's so beloved! A very sensual ally for perfumes and my intoxicatingly delicious floral milk bath. Do try even if you're on the fence about this kind of scent as I once was.
Perfect with Coffee Butter
I personally enjoy the Grandiflorum more, but the Sambac is perfect with the Coffee Butter in my Whipped Mango butter with jasmine and coffee. It is a bit sweeter than the Grandiflorum, which seems necessary with the deep strong coffee aroma in the coffee butter. Very popular blend. Thanks, CG, for offering this lovely absolute at an affordable price.
I was concerned about ordering Jasmine online. I love Jasmine tea and really, really dislike most Jasmine scented items. This Jasmine sambac absolute is so lovely! It reminds me of the tea, but stronger. Dilution is necessary, of course.
A MUSKY & MASCULINE FLORAL!
This oil needs to be diluted in order to fully appreciate the aromatic complexity of this absolute. I find it to be ideal in blends for men that require a floral note as well as aromatic mists. Highly recommend!
This oil smells fabulous! Clean herbal jasmine, not to floral and heady! Just as a Jasmine Sambac should be! A little goes a long way, try it and you'll be impressed with this gem.
Jasmine grandiflorum may be pretty, but jasmine sambac is beautiful. Of course, in absolute form, it may come off as fetid or too musky and dark, but honestly, people, you need to dilute this to really understand how complex and mysteriously gorgeous it really is. To give you a reference point, this is the jasmine they use in jasmine tea. It's like a blue bottle of food coloring. It looks black in the bottle, but turns sapphire and a lovely shade of aqua the more water you dillute it with. Give it a chance and let it open its heart to you. Its secrets will be well worth the effort. You'll never go back to that flighty, princess-of-a-grandiflorum ever again.
