Frangipani White Absolute

Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “After a long wait we are happy to announce, as of 4/10/20, that we now offer white frangipani absolute, a headier, toppier, creamier, waxier version of its red counterpart, white frangipani absolute is a brilliant addition especially for narcotic florals lovers.

Of a soft waxy consistency that will become pourable with gentle heat, white frangipani absolute is a beautiful white floral material, sharing some creamy-sweet facets of ylang ylang and to some extent tuberose absolute, opulent, sparkling, creamy, heady, sweet and quite hypnotic. It is a strongly intoxicating aromatic material, like a heavier, tropical version of fresh gardenia flowers, with pink bubble gum sweet yellow fruity notes that could also remind of osmanthus flowers, but with no trace of leather and with extra tropical intoxicating notes added instead – even too much! Getting lost into this material for too long has given me a slight headache.

Our fabulous red frangipani absolute of course shares a large part of the aroma profile, but it tends to excel for its richer notes, that make it shine in the heart to base of a perfume composition. White frangipani absolute, instead, tends to have more sparkle in its top to heart and a relatively more straightforward dry-down, so they can be used alone or in combination to suit your composition best. In perfumery it can work harmoniously with jasmine, ylang ylang, gardenia, orange blossom absolute for voluptuous heavy-floral and oriental type perfume compositions.”
