I just read an article about a new perfume that one of my favorite perfumers, Frank Voelkl of Firmenich developed for the young exciting fashion designer, Jason Wu, and how the scent of jasmine took him back to his childhood home in Taiwan. Jasmine is one of the "essential smells" in the Scent Guru Group's Essential Awakenings Premier Edition. Women for many years have worn perfumes with jasmine as one of the main ingredients and one of the most famous: Joy by Jean Patou, which, for many years was known as the most expensive perfume out on the market. One smell of the jasmine in my kit could take you back in time, or to someone who used to wear it. Great memories can live forever.
