Ruh Chameli (Jasminum grandiflorum eo) / Ethereal, Sweet, Floral, Balsamic, Fruity / $350 oz Jasminum grandiflorum
"There is something about jasmine that captures with special intensity the incandescence and luminosity, the simplicity and innocence of childhood. Is it its starlike whiteness? Is it the trembling delicacy of its blossom hovering over its stem and leaves almost like a dream? Is it its ephemeral beauty, its long-lasting sweet fragrance, its generous yielding of flowers every single day of summer? Whatever it is, thereÕs something about the jasmine that takes me to places where I have to leave words behind, to the places where I have left my childhood, places that continue to invade my dreams ‹ in the setting of my earliest memories. In my past. There, there is jasmine; plenty of it; in abundance; in profusion. I grew up with it. The hot summer sun. Dust in the air. And suddenly, the jasmine. Likefresh snow; like a mind untainted by questions. Like certainty."
--Õ Farzaneh Milani, Iranian author
Ruh Chameli (traditional distillation of Jasmin grandiflorum flowers in copper deg vessels) is a pale yellow liquid with an intensely rich, yet delicate, ethereal, sweet, floral bouquet with a soft, balsamic-fruit undertone. As with all the Ruhs(Motia, Juhi, Gulab, Khus) the essence of the flower is obtained through hydro-distillation and not extraction processes with solvents and alcohol as is the case with absolute.
In natural perfumery it is used in high class florals, garland perfumes, sacred essences, incense bouquets
