Mini shot: 103: Tiare Flower, Jasmine & Hibiscus

Write a review

How about a walk along the beach, with hot sand and coconut trees?

| 103| is the ultimate sundrenched scent! It is sure to whisk you far away with its accords of tiare flower, hibiscus and white sand. The fragrance opens on top notes of fresh Italian bergamot and green Moroccan neroli. The heart reveals a sunny floral bouquet of frangipani and Sambac jasmine, which lend character with their animalistic green and orange-tinged notes. The base of musk and vanilla forms a warm and milky trail that calls to mind the sweetness of monoi and soothing vacation memories

What is Sambac jasmine?

Two varieties of jasmine are mainly used in perfumery: Grandiflorum jasmine, which can be found in Grasse and Egypt, and Sambac jasmine, mainly grown in India. Sambac jasmine has a greener scent, while Egyptian jasmine is fruitier and sweeter. Grasse jasmine, meanwhile, is more jammy and petal-like. What distinguishes Sambac jasmine physically is its large number of petals, which greatly outnumber Grandiflorum jasmine's five.

What is monoi?

Monoi is a fragrant oil obtained by macerating tiare flowers in refined copra oil (from coconut). It is used as a massage oil to nourish skin and hair, as well as a tanning oil to stop skin from drying out in the sun (NB: it is not a substitute for sunscreen). Monoi is a traditional product of the islands of French Polynesia.

Where does neroli come from?

Neroli is the essential oil of the bitter orange flower. It is obtained by steam distillation. Many different extracts can be taken from this tree; bitter orange essential oil is extracted from the fruit, petitgrain essential oil from the branches and twigs, and orange blossom absolute from the flower, extracted using volatile solvents.
