Jasmin is a station on Line 9 of the Paris Métro on the Rue Jasmin. The station opened on 8 November 1922 with the opening of the first section of the line from Trocadéro to Exelmans.

It is named after the French poet 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. The 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.
