Jasmine | Yuzu | Basil | Floral & Jovial
Hypothesis behind the bar:
One day my dear friend Zade came up with a scent combo he thought would be phenomenal and shared it with me: lime, rosemary, and jasmine. "HA! I've been wanting to make something with jasmine in it for ages", I thought, and gleefully accepted the task to make such a delightful scent. He didn't know I was going to name it after him, but it felt fitting, as the scent is as uplifting and happy as he is.
According to Zade's original request, lime was to be the citrus note in this blend. Funnily enough, lime was the only ingredient I didn't have at the time, but what I did have, was something much more expensive and far less available (LOL), yuzu. Yuzu is a subspecies of mandarin and is far less tangy than an orange, but does not have as much bite as a lime. Because of these factors, I decided to use yuzu over lime. Rosemary and citrus go very well together, so I was not worried when initial plans went awry, but the next challenge awaited me: jasmine. Jasmine is extremely potent and easily overpowers almost anything you add it to, so I had to be careful with the ratio AND add some other floral elements so it didn't just punch you in the face!
Once the blend was complete, it was time to decide what the bar was going to look like. I sat back and inhaled the aroma a few times.
It had to be green. There was no other color that could have encapsulated this scent more than a fresh, yellow-green.
Data & Conclusion:
WOW. This scent turned out even better than I expected. Exceptionally balanced floral and citrus, without overwhelming your senses. This scent is jovial and is sure to be one of your new favorite scents!
