The flowers of Jasminum auriculatum are distilled in copper vessels in the traditional way in North India. Ruh Juhi is a amber to pale yellow liquid diffusing a delectable, warm, fresh, sweet, floral bouquet aroma with a rich balsamic, honeyed undertones. The fragrance of ruh juhi is totally free of the indolic and animal notes that are often found in Jasmine absolutes.
Difference between Ruh and Attar
The main difference between a ruh and an attar is that in distilling the ruh the receiving vessel contains no sandalwood oil. In short it is a pure essential distilled from the flower petals under reduced pressure and low temperatures. The yield of the oil is almost half of what can be prospected if the same flowers were subjected through extraction with solvents to produce a concrete which is then washed with alcohol to finally produce the absolute. Even the cost is substantially higher than the absolute. The odor profile is also very different as the distillation process captures more of the top notes and lesser base notes than the absolute.
