Why We Love Jasmine Sambac!
Introducing our Queen of the night, Jasmine Sambac. An intoxicating fragrance released after the sun has set and is at its most intense when the moon is full and bright.
Jasmine Sambac is floral, warm, sweet and undeniably feminine. Compared to the traditional Jasmine (Grandiflorum), its slight green back note also brings some masculine tonalities. So if you love Jasmine but are looking for something new, Jasmine Sambac might just be your jam.
If we had to list the benefits of Jasmine Sambac in only three words, they’d be; sensual, empowering and soothing.
Jasmine Sambac’s reputation as an aphrodisiac comes as no surprise. Its scent has a relaxing effect on the body but also stimulates the senses.
Its warm notes invite us to open up emotionally, helping us show love and compassion to others, and more importantly, to ourselves. If you struggle with self-love, this scent is for you. As a bonus, Sambac’s uplifting aroma inspires confidence.
Potted Jasmine is beautiful on the bedside table, planted under your bedroom window or simply spritzed as a soothing natural essence throughout your room. Its sweet scent promotes a state of tranquillity. Brain scan reports indicate that the aroma can increase GABA, a chemical on nerve cells that reduces anxiety.
A MODERN PERFUME INGREDIENT
If you’re a lover of J’adore Eau De Parfum by Dior, it’s safe to say you’re a lover of Jasmine. Dior’s alluring floral and feminine fragrance features a rare combo of Jasmine Grandiflorum and Jasmine Sambac, proving that “too much of a good thing” isn’t always accurate.
We may reference Jo Malone a lot, but that’s because the fragrance house is often a reflection of what’s currently in fashion. One of Malone’s latest scent creations is Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne. This is not to say that Jasmine Sambac is new on the scene, but more of a reference to say – it’s still as relevant and popular as ever.
HOW WE USE IT
Fun fact – our founder Samantha once named Jasmine Sambac as one of the fragrances that best represents her personality for its sweetness and intensity. We love Sambac as a middle note, paired alongside the likes of Bergamot, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Geranium, Sandalwood, Lime, Vetiver, Ylang-Ylang and Yuzu.
