Jasmine flowers have been cultivated and valued by humans for thousands of years. The luxurious plant is known for its beautiful white blooms and rich fragrance. The flower is said to have originated in Iran, but today we can mostly find it in tropical climates. There are more than 200 types of Jasmine bushes in the world, which come in different shapes, colors, and sizes. They grow in all tropical and subtropical regions of Europe, Asia, and Oceania. But the most remarkable diversity of Jasmine is in South and Southeast Asia.
Jasmine is famous for its sweet, romantic scent and is the main ingredient in some of the world's best-known perfumes, including Chanel No. 5. It is also a common ingredient in high-quality alcohol, sweets, and desserts.
The name comes from the Persian word "yasamin", which means "gift of God". Only one of the most beautiful and deep fragrant flowers can boast such a name. In many countries, Jasmine evokes love and peace and is often used in wedding ceremonies. It symbolizes modesty; although Jasmine flowers are small and simple, they produce a strong and pleasant fragrance.

What are Absolutes? Absolutes are natural oil extracts of flowers obtained by various cold processes. (Ethanol extraction, CO2 extraction, maceration, enfleurage, cold pressing extraction) Due to the extraction method, they are highly concentrated and have a more substantial and longer-lasting smell than essential oils. They are the best and highest quality approximation of the smell of flowering plants in nature. Absolutes contain not only the essential oil of plants but also other vital ingredients, which is why they are more complex in composition and scent.
