Eucalyptus Absolute 50%

Adam Michael has this to say “I first introduced eucalyptus absolute in October 2015. And now as I write, it is the 7th January 2020 and I finally have a direct source for the material.

This is probably one of the most underrated naturals in existence, a stunningly seductive Mediterranean scrub beauty that really dazzles and surprises. And this is little to nothing like smelling the essential oil, it is light years superior.

From the top the aroma profile is pungent blackcurrant bud fruity and this powerful note has a tinge of something that makes me think of medicinal blackcurrant flavoured throat soothing candies, along with the taste of Ribena. This aroma is supported by a joyous dose of fir balsam, juniper berries (more absolute orientated) and cistus balsamic character with amber like qualities. I also detect slightly muted aspects that are perhaps comparable to smelling blue hemlock absolute. Also, notable Italian cypress nuances can be found, that are reminiscent of a cypress tree that has been in direct contact with the hot sun for many hours, and thus releasing that delicious sappy resinous green goodness, that saturates the warm air here in Tuscany throughout the summer. This sincerely is utterly gorgeous material, inexpensive, and if you are a fan of the equally delightful pine absolute, then this eucalyptus absolute really is a must try material. The dry down is reminiscent of the breathtakingly beautiful Corsican Mediterranean scrub.

For perfumery this material pairs especially well with labdanum and pine materials, along with roses, sandalwood, green tea and tobaccos. A must for tropical fruit bases, leather accords, tea accords, oriental blends and rich floral bouquets. A pleasure to evaluate.

Produced by solvent extracting the concrete which is produced from the leaves and fruits of the plant. The absolute is green in colour and very gunky and sticky. As such what we offer here is a 50% dilution in alcohol that is of a pourable viscosity and simply mess free and easy to use.
