We hear this sentiment expressed quite often, and it makes our jasmine-loving hearts hurt!
The truth is, the aroma of the most commonly available Jasmine (grandiflorum) is quite heavy, heady and can cause many people to develop a headache or even a migraine.

Not something you want to be wearing all day, and certainly not the impression you want to be leaving on those around you.
