Reminiscent of the historical well known perfumery ingredient “Jasmin benzol”. JASMINE AUTUMN ABS offers a typical warm, gourmand, dry-fruit and hay-like effect. With elegantly curved leaves and petals of delicate white porcelain, the fragility of this flower contrasts with the astonishing power of its scent.
