I like Aura Cacia and have enjoyed their lavender and eucalyptus oils for years upon years.
There seems to be some disagreement in the reviews on whether or not this smells like jasmine. I have to agree with those who say it doesn't. At least, it doesn't smell like jasmine *flowers* if that's what you're looking for. To me, it smells like strong tea. It's better, of course, when diluted.
This Jasmine oil smells to me like honey suckel I found as a kid in the honey suckel fowers. Where you plucked the flower, took the center out and slowly drew out the center stem just to get a hint of clear honey suckel! This Jasmine Absolute smells just like the honey suckel tasted as a kid! Taste of youth, beauty and rare moments of joy just like a honey suckel flowers essence!
First, I totally disagree with the other reviewer--this product absolutely smells like jasmine essential oil (not fresh or dried jasmine, though). As someone who has spent over $100 on undiluted Jasmine, this is a good inexpensive alternative. If you absolutely love jasmine, consider going in on the real purchase--but this is a great oil for wearing as a single note, using in your own oil-based moisturizer (I use in homemade sugar scrubs), and to mix with other oils. My only complaint is that it isn't a bit stronger scented--but, again, this is knowing how much jasmine costs in its undiluted form. It keeps well.
