So I know that BN is chock full of highly discerning noses and to that end, you may find the following contents of this post to be abominable LOL! I dunno but here it goes. I noticed that jasmine, tuberose and neroli/orange blossom smell pretty much like monozygotic triplets. Their main difference is in strength. Granted, I have never sniffed tuberose essential oil and the jasmine e/o I have is cosmetic grade so perhaps my impression is somewhat skewed. I am not sure if my neroli is therapeutic or cosmetic grade since it was a free gift with purchase. Anyways, I would like to know your thoughts on these flowers (and/or essential oils). Do you think they are very similar, have nothing in common, or have just enough to make a solid distinction like you would between say a rose and a lavender? Are there other flowers that untrained noses like myself would confuse with these three? If so, which ones? Thanks for sharing..
