The Duke of Tuscany first brought jasmine to India in 1690, a flower originally from Arabia. Whether fresh or dried, they still play a quintessential role in India’s myths, legends and daily rituals. At times, Jasminum sambac perfumed loose-leaf tea; at others, it is braided into floral necklaces. Revered spiritually, the odorant flower turns into an offering in Hindu temples.

HOW IT SMELLS
Madurai is a true, heady creamy jasmine – it smells rich and deliciously intoxicating, much like the flower when it is full bloom under the hot sun. The ylang ylang note offers some extra floral warmth to the scent, however this is quite truly a jasmine fragrance through and through.
We love the voluptuous sexiness of creamy jasmine. So delicate to look at, it is such a full-bodied scent that heralds the warmer weather. Madurai smells like spring in full swing, the weather is warm, the flowers are blooming and there is the sweet scent of summer days just around the corner.
