Jasminum grandiflorum, also known variously as the Spanish jasmine, Royal jasmine, Catalan jasmine, among others, is a species of jasmine native to South Asia, the Arabian peninsula, East and Northeast Africa and the Yunnan and Sichuan regions of China. The species is widely cultivated and is reportedly naturalized in Guinea, the Maldive Islands, Mauritius, Réunion, Java, the Cook Islands, Chiapas, Central America, and the Caribbean. It is closely related to, and sometimes treated as merely a form of, Jasminum officinale. The plant is known as “saman pichcha” or “pichcha” in Sri Lanka.
Jasmin Absolute (aromatherapy)
Jasmin Absolute from Concrète is a dark orange (on ageing reddish-brown), somewhat viscous liquid, and it possesses an intensely floral, warm, rich and highly diffusive odor with a peculiar waxy-herbaceous, oily-fruity and tea-like undertone. The odor and the nuances in the undertone varies according to the origin, production, age and method of purification (from the concrète).
