HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 8 November 1922. It is named after the French poet Jacques Jasmin (born Jacques Boé; 1798–1864), called the wig-maker poet, whose works in Langue d’oc were the precursor of the Félibrige, the literary movement of Provençal.

Rue Jasmin is a section of the old Rue de la Cure. This was a reference to the medical cures claimed for the mineral springs of the former vineyards of the surrounding suburb of Auteuil. In 2005, the station was refurbished.
