Jasmine Tea CO2 (SELECT)
Adam Michael has this to say “First the leaves of Camellia sinensis are picked. Pre-bloom sambac jasmine is also picked. The two materials are mixed together. The jasmine flower opens and within 3 to 4 hours the tea leaves have absorbed the jasmine scent. The leaves are then subjected to high pressure extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide to produce this amazing CO2 material.
The aroma opens with an abundance of sweet jasmine flowers and lots of gentle tea character. The heart and base notes are more jasmine heady-floral orientated with a ylang ylang quality. The tea notes really grow in intensity and in a refreshing floral direction. The colour is yellowy-green and of a pourable viscosity. On the smelling strip the aroma lasts for two days.”
Mark Evans has this to say: “As Adam describes above, this CO2 was extracted from tea leaves after they have been infused with Jasmine Sambac blooms, but before they are roasted and dried or processed any further. So the extraction is taken straight from the still green leaves which have probably wilted and oxidised just a little. The result is a wonderfully bright and uplifting fresh jasmine and green tea perfumed experience that makes me smile in pleasure every time I open the bottle.
The jasmine fragrance is true to the sambac flower itself in all its green, heady enchantment. Luckily, the funky smelling indoles that are characteristic of jasmine blooms when they are a day old are just not present here at all. There is some juiciness there – pear and apple – along with a little underlying woodiness. The tea note is there as well, a fresh, iced, green tea adding a backdrop for all the excitement up front.
I would highly recommend this CO2 for use in floral colognes or any light, airy or aromatic creation needing a boost of green jasmine in the top notes and a subtle tea in the heart.”
This product contains ethanol and water and has a flash point of 21c. This material will not dilute in carrier oil or in diluents such as IPM due to the water content. Therefore this material is solely of use to the perfumer. We advise in perfumery that this material is used at up to about 10% of the composition. If you work with pre-diluted materials at 10% in ethanol then this material should be used neat. For those who prefer to work with pure materials, Jasmine Sweet Tea CO2 should be added last because the mixture will go cloudy at that point – once the ethanol is added to dilute to EdT strength it will go clear again – but leaving it clouded for days on end risks bacterial growth starting so isn’t wise.
