Bisabolene Natural Isolate

Adam Michael has this to say “This bisabolene natural isolate is a very unique and peculiar material that is all over the place, it is total chaos in a bottle. Now, the opening is a smooth coconut and emulsion paint melody. This leads on to an aroma reminiscent of canned tropical fruits, all mashed together with some noticeable peach juice notes.  Further on you get hit with some very acute, piercing notes that remind me of smelling carrot seed and caraway, and somehow entwined with smoky facets found from smelling frankincense neglecta and fresh pieces of opoponax resin. I said this was all over the place right! The dry down is a bitter woody, astringent and herbaceous affair.

Uses, bisabolene natural isolate pairs well with artemisia, galbanum, opoponax, especially good for the creation of woody-peppery bases, and further improving lavender colognes. Also said to perform well in soap bases.

Concerning usage, this material is quite strong and needs to be diluted. We advise a 50% dilution to start with and diluting further if required. Added to alcohol this material will initially go cloudy and will require filtration, as it is only partly alcohol-soluble. This material does dilute perfectly in oil and thus can be a very useful material for those creating solid perfumes.”

Arctander has this to say “Recently made available as a comparatively low-cost, pure and synthetic chemical (H,la- Roche Co.), this sesquiterpene should have a good and bright future in perfumery, not only as “another key material for some reconstituted essential oils”, but also – and mostly – as a very attractive, colourless and stable material to form an important part of the fragrance picture of Oriental and Opopanax, Chypre, novelty fragrance types, etc.”
