Jasmine Perfumes Are About to Be Your Next Fragrance Obsession

Updated 04/25/19

Jasmine, with its flowery-meets-wooded scent, is apparently found in a whopping 83% of women's fragrances and—get this—33% of men's fragrances. It's subtly sweet, though, making it the perfect unisex note, so we can't say we're too surprised. What's shocking, however, are the effects of jasmine on the brain: It transmits messages to a region involved in controlling emotions and is said to help ease stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and even menstrual cramps and menopausal symptoms. In a test with mice, after smelling jasmine, the mice calmed down significantly to the point where they quite literally hung out in a corner and relaxed.

So, in other words, every time you spritz, you're also calming your mind. Ready for your own dose of the intoxicating scent and natural sedative? Keep scrolling to see our jasmine-infused fragrance picks.
