Hello all. Someone have experience with this oil? Cestrum nocturnum also called night blooming jasmine. There are differences with jasminums? Thanks!

Wow this is all beautiful, thank you for sharing. Seems that someone sell the absolute, but it is very expensive.I grow a few kinds of Jasmine vines and bushes.
My attempts at making extracts have failed so far, because I live in a cold climate.
My plants are in pots for mobility, they spend the summer in the greenhouse and the winter indoors by the window.
Some of them even die-off and go through a small dormancy during the winter months.
Both my Jasmine Sambac and Night Jessamine (Cestrum Nocturnum) are night bloomers.
The flowers close in the day time, and when darkness come they start opening and releasing their intoxicating aroma.
When I wake up early in the morning after a night of projection from my lovelies, the whole house and workshop is permeated with their scent.
What a beautiful way to start the day !
Interestingly, those Jasmines only bloom in the winter, when the light cycle is akin to the tropics.
Here up North, the days are really long in the summer. The plants love the heat and they grow a ton a vegetation, but not a bloom to be smelled.
Another variety I have, is the Poet's Jasmine. This one is a summer beauty. It is a vine that explodes in the spring, it just wants to climb and grow.
By Mid-summer, it stops growing and it takes all that gathered sun energy into its abundant flower buds.
For a good month and a half, it gives hundreds of blooms on a daily basis and it's a daytime thing.
It takes a lot of flowers along with a perfect timing and a delicate handling to extract their divine aroma.
In my climate, they don't produce enough aroma molecules to make a worthy extract.
I was disappointed at first, but I have made peace with my desire to capture their scent.
Nature is beautiful to watch and smell, my Jasmines bring me a lot of joy and wonder.
