Cocoa Absolute Signature Gold

Adam Michael has this to say “Cocoa absolute is one of those perfumery aromatics that one would think is so simple and straightforward to source, yet none of the absolutes we sampled across the past few months seemed to get even close to the aroma profile we were searching for.

Some had an excessively bitter, slightly burnt, dry cocoa powder vibe about them, cocoa profile yes, but lacking body, voluptuousness, and had no real beauty to speak of. Others had a better profile but were overall flat and uninspiring, and then some others had a distinct onion note that was kind of ruining the experience!

We were starting to lose hope when we found this cocoa absolute. At last, an absolute that was everything we believe a cocoa absolute should be: intensely chocolatey, lavishly gourmand like a very good dessert, not too cloyingly sweet, and not excessively bitter or dry either. We believe that what we have found here is the new benchmark for cocoa aromatics, not only because of its instant impact yummy aroma profile, perfect body, excellent staying power (for a natural), and its pleasing dry down, but also for its perfect alcohol solubility, in which it dissolves quickly and effortlessly. Despite this we also offer this at 60%, pre-diluted in alcohol, being a quite sticky material and bit difficult to get out of a tiny bottle when at room temperature. Pre-dilution fixes this completely.

A pleasure to work with, and we are sincerely hoping the producer will consistently keep delivering a material of this excellent quality for many batches to come.”
