From the Oleaceae family, Jasminum sambac is a slender, erect or climbing evergreen bush that is capable of growing from 1 to 3 metres in height, and is more shrubby and woody than J. grandiflorum. Its sturdy branchlets are encompassed by elliptic or obovate, dark green compound leaves and adorned with tubular, star-shaped white to pale yellow flowers that are thicker and more waxy than J. grandiflorum. They grow either as an individual blossom or in clusters at the tips of branches. Our Jasmine Sambac Absolute is an extremely beautiful oil for Jasmine lovers. It has a slightly different aroma than Jasminum grandiflorum and is not as sweet as our Jasmine Absolutes.
