Jasmine, its history
The small, delicate flowers of Jasmine Grandiflorum were already used in the 16th century by the master glove makers and perfumers of Grasse. Very quickly, this real plant jewel became a must in the perfumers' palette and was at the heart of Grasse horticulture.
Originally from the Himalayas, Jasmine is grown in all countries with a temperate climate. There are about 200 different varieties and 259 molecules that give it its fragrance. This one has a honeyed and fruity fragrance. Since the beginning of the first millennium BC, jasmine was used to perfume bath water and statues of the gods. In China, it was used to perfume black tea, a specialty reserved for emperors. In India, from the 5th century B.C., the legend tells that the tip of the arrows of Kama, Indian god, was composed of five perfumed flowers, jasmine symbolizing then the languor of love.
It begins to be really used for its fragrance at the beginning of the Christian era, by Chinese nobles and then in Baghdadian perfumes, so much so that it is found many times in the formulas of incenses and attars. In the 17th century, the master glove makers of Grasse used it to perfume their gloves, an innovation that transformed the city of tanners into the world capital of perfume.
