Clone Formula: Jasmin 231 by Firmenich

I just got my order of Jasmin 231 today and I thought I would tell you all about it as it is virtually never written or spoken about online despite the fact that it is was once a very important Jasmine base. NOTE: formula is now included at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for the write up on the Jasmine base. Can’t wait to try it. Will be following your blog and looking forward to your new blends.

Great post and best wishes on the launch of your blog! I am a vintage perfume collector who has enjoyed quietly reading and learning about perfume ingredients and composition from you and the other mad scientists on the Basenotes DIY thread. I know my vintage Joy parfum smells unlike anything on the market today, but I also like to understand why this is so. Looking forward to hearing about your discoveries and (I hope) experiencing one of your perfumes some day.

I doing the formula without pcpa ( i use pure pca) and pimento( i replaced mixed isoeugenyl acetate, methyl diantillis and juniper EO :D). Smell very beautifull yellow narcissus in my garden with fresh laundry/soapy and fruity backnotes 😀

Hey Jamie, I would also love to see your interpretation of an Oud recreation. Thanks for all the great information.

Hello Jamie, in the article you mentioned how Jasmin 231 contained a lot of indole and civet. I see the civet in the formula (I used natural absolute and synthetic together), but i do not see indole in the formula. Did you omit it intentionally? Thanks

Hi Jamie,
great formula, I love this base and you are right, the pimento leaf adds something very distinctive like PCPA, after all. Just one question, does methyl anthranilate chemically react with Lyral? Can dimethyl anthranilate be used or is it better to leave the formula as it is?
