1 mL sample vial of our pre-blended in organic fractionated coconut oil Jasmine sambac absolute 10% dilution. Be prepared to be swept away by J. sambac, with very strong floral, woodsy leather-like notes, and a fresh yet mysteriously complex deep floral-sweet accord. Details for our pure Jasmine sambac used in this dilution are here. Shop for larger sizes of our sambac 10% by clicking here.
The aromatic difference between our Jasmine 10% dilutions (grand and sambac), to my nose anyway, is that grandiflorum dilutions are brighter, lighter, clearer, fruitier (ripe bananas comes to mind!) while sambac at 10% is initially much sweeter with an exotic floral note reminiscent of fresh magnolia flowers but with a long lingering green fruity dry down.
We offer two other Jasmine absolute 10% dilutions, Jasmine grandiflorum (using solvent extracted Jasmine) and Jasmine grandiflorum (by hexane free extraction of certified organic Jasmine g. absolute). Many aromatherapists shun away from solvent extracted absolutes for clinical use even though the residual solvent value revealed by GC-MS is in the trace range. We stock (when we can locate them!) hexane free (benign) extracted absolutes and have made available some of these costly pure absolutes in 10% dilutions.
