Ruh Motia (Jasminum sambac eo) / Exotic, Floral, Balsamic, Fruity, Tea / $325 oz Jasminum sambac
hydrodistilled in copper degs
The fragrance of the jasmine is full of delicacy,
And a fairy, on smelling it, would be astonished.
So beautiful are the flowers of the yellow jasmine,
That whoever sees them immediately forgets everything else.
What shall I say of the state of its purity?
For it is such that the foot of the sight slips if it falls on it.*
The smell of the jasmine zambac is most pleasing,
And from one flower of it there is extraordinary fragrance;
Why, then, should not its blossom be held precious?
For its perfume is full of womanly qualities :t
In short, the odour of the jasmine is most sweet;
Why, then, should it not be pleasing to the soul?
By Sher ʻAli Jaʻfarī Afsos
Jasminum sambac essential oil, known as "Ruh Motia" in India, is produced by hydrodistillation in copper vessels in the traditional way in North India.
It is an light amber colored liquid displaying an immensely rich, warm, exotic, sweet floral bouquet with a complex balsamic, fruity, tea-like undertone of good tenacity.
The indolic and animalic notes usually found in the absolute are almost totally absent in the distilled Ruh. The Ruh captures more of the fine fresh topnotes that one smells in the evening as the flowers begin to open and saturate the atmosphere in which they grow.
In natural perfumery it is used in garland perfumes, sacred essences, high class florals
