The Royal Jasmine (Jasminum Grandiflorum) originated from South India has been known since a long time ago as “love oil” and one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs. However, jasmine petals do not give off their fragrance as easily as most of the other flowers as their rings are too fragile to endure the steam distillation, therefore the jasmine absolute is extracted using solvent extraction method. In the manufacturing process after the solvent goes through the freshly collected blooms the mass becomes viscous and thick. The liquid that contains fats, ethereal oils, wax, and other plant-based materials is called concrete. Later in the process, the concrete is purified and all the solvents are left to evaporate. In the highest quality of absolutes, there are not any traces of solvent, so it is considered the purest graveolent absolute,
To extract as much oil as possible, jasmine petals are hand-picked at night or in the early morning before the sunrise. In order to produce 1 kg of jasmine concrete more than 1 ton of jasmine flowers needs to be collected. It is therefore no wonder that jasmine absolute is one of the most expensive oils in the world. For quite a while, the fragrance of jasmine is one of the essential elements in perfumery and often it is considered the main axis in the structure of perfume.
