Balsam Tolu Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “Balsam tolu absolute is mainly used as a fixative for perfumers and the aroma is reminiscent of benzoin and peru balsam, largely because the chemistry is not overly different. Balsam tolu absolute contains benzyl-benzoate, benzyl-cinnamate and benzoic acid amongst other constituents. I would advise perfumers to dilute this material in ethanol at upto 50% to make it easier to use.”

Arctander has this to say “This material gives excellent effects in hyacinth, tuberose, gardenia, honeysuckle, stephanotis and other sweet floral fragrances…it is, in general, an interesting item for use in all types of fantasy perfumes, ‘tabac’, ‘leather’, aldehydic perfume, etc.”
