Content Creator, Tanishi Ravani on why her nose will always belong to the humble yet intoxicating jasmine

A few years ago, during my law college years, I was going through intense stress and anxiety due to various circumstances in my professional life. One evening, feeling overwhelmed and emotionally drained from my internship, I decided to walk to clear my mind. As I strolled through a nearby park, I noticed a captivating fragrance wafting through the air. Intrigued, I followed the scent and visited a “Gajra” vendor. I sat down on a nearby bench, closed my eyes, and breathed in deeply, allowing the soothing scent of Jasmine to mesmerise me. A sense of peace and tranquillity took over me. At that moment, I realised how impactful fragrances can be. From that day forward, Jasmine became my calm in the chaos. Even today, whenever I come across this fragrance, whether it’s in a garden, a scented candle, or even in a cup of tea, it never fails to evoke that profound sense of peace and renewal in me.
