Jasmine is one of the most famous white flowers in the world. There are two types of jasmine used to create perfume, Jasmine Sambac and Jasmine grandiflorum.

Tuberose is one of the most powerful floral fragrances and is nicknamed the "Queen of the night" because of its tendency to bloom at night. The essence of white Tuberose is very expensive, and most of the Tuberose fragrances you encounter on the market have been diluted.
