Two days ago it was warm and I was harvesting jasmine flowers for the ongoing enfleurage. Monday night the weather suddenly changed – as if day light savings time were a window that was abruptly opened. All of a sudden we’ve got substantially cooler weather, so cool that my little jasmine sambac flowers this morning were barely opened, as if they weren’t too sure opening themselves up was such a good idea.
I don’t blame them. I wore a wool sweater and thick scarf to the perfumery today. Thus, I feel pretty confident stating that the jasmine cycle more than likely has come to a close. Nest up: violets!
