Jasmine Abs at 10% in DPG

Description and usage notes:

One of, if not the most useful, floral and one of the most powerful of all natural materials used in perfumery.  As this is both so powerful and so expensive, it is offered here at 10%, however the undiluted product is also available here.

The material offered here is a fine quality Jasmine Absolute produced from Concrete made in Egypt from locally grown flowers by Fridal one of the suppliers we have access to through our Zanos collaboration.

The manufacturer identifies the following main components of this product: Benzyl Acetate, Benzyl Benzoate, Phytol, Iso-Phytol, Cis-Jasmone, Linalool, Indol.“ 

Arctander writes extensively about this material: “Jasmin Absolute from Concrete 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 under- tone. The odor and the nuances in the undertone varies according to the origin, production, age and method of purification (from the concrete).

Jasmin absolute represents one of the most striking examples of nature’s ability to round off and conceal—or unsurpassably utilize—the odor-effect of very simple odorants, e.g. benzyl acetate and Iinalool, the main constituents of jasmin absolute (in respect to quantity). Most perfumers have, at one time or another in their experience, tried to duplicate the jasmin fragrance by relying upon literature information as to the chemical composition of jasmin absolute (a very unartistic approach to a perfumery problem!). The perfumers will no doubt agree that the problem is not solved, nor is it hardly even approached in this way, The odor of a mixture of benzyl acetate, linalool, benzyl alcohol, methyl anthranilate, indole, etc. in the analyzed proportions is far from representative of the jasmin fragrance. More recently, a number of low-percentage components have been identified in the jasmin absolute, and these findings have greatly contributed to the improvement of artificial jasmin flower oil bases. A large number of synthetic materials, some of them chemically related to the jasmones, have been developed, and these are of great help to the creative perfumer in his attempts to reproduce [it]” 
He goes on to talk about uses: “Jasmin Absolute from Concrete is used in such a multitude and variety of perfumes that it is hardly possible to establish a rulefor its use. ‘No perfume without jasmin’ is an old saying, and this is not far from the fact. The jasmin-rose complex forms the more important part or ‘fond’ of numerous ‘grands parfums’ as well as quite ordinary perfumes and bases. The floral note, when required, is provided by the addition of jasmin absolute or any kind of a jasmin base in 8 out of 10 cases. And the practicing perfume student will be surprised when he learns how little jasmin absolute he has to use in order to obtain just enough of a ‘floral’ note. With that fact in consideration, even a true jasmin absolute is rarely too expensive to use.”   The undiluted product is certified by the manufacturer to contain the following materials requiring declaration as potential allergens by EU authorities:
Benzyl Benzoate < 30%
Eugenol < 5%
Benzyl Alcohol < 5%
Limonene traces
Isoeugenol < 0.5%
Linalool < 5%

Each entry contains a short list of scent notes with occasionally other short commentary to assist those who may not have encountered the material previously to decide whether it is of interest: I recommend you make your own assessment of each and every perfumery material you use however.

After pricing, quantity options and other basic details scroll down for narative descriptions: these are intended to assit interested readers as well as potential purchasers to assess the uses and potential of the material in question.

Many of the descriptions contain quotations from the manufacturer of the product and in addition I have quoted fairly extensively from Arctander[1] and from Arcadi Boix Camps[2] – both independent writers and both highly experienced perfumers.

There are also some quotes from Bedoukian[3] where details of the chemistry of a material are significant and from Scent & Chemistry[4] the authors of which have taken an analytical approach to the art of perfumery that is unusual and very useful. Quotations have been included from the extremely useful teaching books by Calkin & Jellinek[5] and Curtis & Williams[6] and Surburg and Panten [7] as well.

Anything not identified as a quotation is my own opinion of the material in question and it’s uses, but I am grateful to many other sources and perfumers as well as the expert authors named here.  Please note that these descriptions are copyright of the author and, other than properly achnowledged fair use quoations as defined in English Law, republication in any form is not permitted.

[2] Arcadi Boix Camps: quotations are taken from Perfumery: Techniques in Evolution, 2nd Edition published in 2009, but containing material written in 1978, 1985, and 1999 as well – where relevant the date of writing is noted with the quotations.

A quick note about spellings: this website is primarily written in British English - it is after all written by an English Perfumer - however most of the authors mentioned here and many of the manufacturers were writing for American audiences and published using American English: where that is the case I have, as far as possible, preserved the spelling used in the source material.  As a result there may be inconsistencies on any given page, but that seemed to me better than arbitrarily changing material in the process of quotation.

Quantity Options

We’ve recently had a change of policy - and bought some new containers - so now all ingredients are sold by weight whether they are solids or liquids.  Only the 10ml and 5ml sizes incorporated in kits, and a few inexpensive materials such as solvents, are still done by volume.  Even the 5ml and 10ml sizes will now be filled to contain 5g or 10g regardless of whether the material is solid or liquid.

Liquids up to 10g in glass bottles (where the fill level may vary as illustrated above), 30g and 50g in HDPE Plastic.

Those materials available in 1Kg are normally supplied in aluminium flasks similar to those used for the 500g size, though we do supply a few materials in HDPE bottles as well.

Finally please note that, with some 500 different materials and so many size options we don’t hold ready-to-sell stocks: when you buy perfumery ingredients we will prepare them to order for you.  This means that large orders can sometimes take a few days to prepare and also that we don’t offer refunds on ingredients, unless of course there is a fault of some kind.
