Clary Sage Absolute FRANCE

Adam Michael has this to say “This French clary sage absolute is solvent extracted from the flowers of Salvia sclarea that grow in Provence, France. No other plant part is used. This absolute is a solid mass that is brownish green in colour and the aroma is sweet, herbaceous, floral, with delicate woody, amber and tea notes aplenty. French clary sage absolute is a full bodied, sumptuous absolute that is a good fixative and useful within herbal, chypre and fougere compositions.”

Arctander has this to say “Clary Sage Absolute is an excellent modifier, fixative and natural “body” for colognes, lavender fougeres, chypres, ambre bases, conifer fragrances, forest notes and even floral notes like muguet and jasmin.”
