Ruh Juhi (Jasmin auriculatum eo) / Sweet, Fruity, Floral w/ Balsamic, Honeyed undertone / $325 oz Jasmin auriculatum
As he stood in the red light of the oil-lamp, strong, tall, and beautiful, his long black hair sweeping over his shoulders, the knife swinging at his neck, and his head crowned with a wreath of white jasmine, he might easily have been mistaken for some wild god of a jungle legend. The child half asleep on a cot
sprang up and shrieked aloud with terror. Messua turned to soothe him, while Mowgli stood still, looking in at the water- jars and the cooking-pots, the grain-bin, and all the other human belongings that he found himself remembering so well.
--from The Second Jungle Book

The flowers of Ruh Juhi/Jasminum auriculatum are distilled in copper vessels in the traditional way in North India. The main difference between a ruh and an attar is that in distilling the ruh the receiving vessel contains no sandalwood. In short it is a pure essential distilled from the flower under low pressure and low temperature as compared with modern techniques. The yield is less than half of what can be expected if the same flower was subjected to extraction with solvents to produce a concrete and then washed with alcohol to produce the absolute. The cost is significantly higher than the absolute. The odor profile is also different as the distillation process captures more of the top notes than the absolute and less of the base notes.
Ruh Juhi is a amber to yellow liquid displaying a delicious, warm, fresh, sweet, fruity, floral bouquet with a rich balsamic, honeyed undertone totally free of the indolic notes found in Jasmine absolutes
In natural perfumery is used in sacred bouquets, high class florals, garland perfumes
