Sorry to say I don't know anything about the Jasmine Festival, but perhaps getting your message to the top will elicit some responses.

I've never gone to the Jasmine Festival in Grasse but its similar format to other flower festivals in the area -its a big battle of the flowers with floats and procession and , folk dressed up in costumes and additional stuff on outside eh procession - stalls, music and dance, fireworks at night etc

When the float performers are flinging sprigs of jasmine flowers then the smell will be intoxicating.

here is the flyer

ville-grasse.fr/jasminade/pdf/flyer_jasmin_0…

If you go on the sunday there is just a Provençal mass with blessed aperitif and fougasse as a gouter afterwords - the battle of the flowers proper is on Saturday evening - tickets needed for the stands
