Freesia Extrait from Enfleurage

Joseph Colbourne has this to say “Crisp, bracing, fresh, and green, this extrait from enfleurage very closely matches the fragrance of freesia bouquet. Its verdant vibrancy sustains with ever-growing sweetness and depth, revealing dessert wine nuances. After several minutes, however, the fragrances wanes and what is left are impressions of lily and petitgrain. Categorized as a top note, this enfleurage can be used to reconstruct a freesia note with the addition of other materials and lend a wonderfully natural character to a composition.”

Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “Another extremely rare flower to find among natural materials and another quite challenging flower for performing enfleurage. Freesia alba has a quite elegant and refined fragrance, very clean and chaste, so not displaying any sexy hint of indolic dirtiness, with instead significant amounts of linalool featuring in its aroma profile and it makes another brilliant reference and study material for the amateur perfumer and the naturals enthusiast.”
