Artichoke Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma is very unique opening with a bitter vegetative note (cynaropicrin) that resembles the artichoke leaf perfectly. As the aroma develops I detect meaty, earthy, rich, warm and slightly sweet vegetative notes and all of very good tenacity. Artichoke absolute is a rather interesting Egyptian material that I have obtained with the perfumer in mind and that will be of particular use to those creating a culinary perfume. This material is dark orange in colour, of pourable viscosity and obtained from the leaves of the plant by solvent extraction.”
