Artemisia Balloon Blue E.O

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma is boozy, bitter, camphoraceous, dry herbaceous, woody, fruity and extremely tenacious. This material is a softer, lighter aromatic equivalent of absynthe essential oil. As the material dries out, fatty, buttery and somewhat floral nuances are evident. This material is known by lots of common names including Great Mugwort and Giant Mugwort.

In perfumes, balloon blue wormwood oil lends a warm fruity, rich boozy, dry herbaceous note, useful in colognes, chypres, herbal bouquets and fougeres. The material is obtained by steam distilling the leaves and flowering tops, the colour is blue-grey-green and of a pourable viscosity.”
