Adam Michael has this to say “This French hay absolute is olive green to brown in colour, of a thick but pourable consistency that could benefit from gentle warmth prior to use. This absolute is produced by solvent extracting the dried French grasses of Hierochloe alpina. The aroma is chiefly all gourmand throughout, pronounced coumarinic notes, sweetened mate tea, clary sage herbaceous with a gentle rainbow of sweet honey, plum jam and cocoa qualities. Completely alcohol soluble, the best hay absolute money buys, and without question, 10 out of 10 material.”

Arctander has this to say “Hay absolute is used in perfumery not only in “new mown hay” bases, or in combination with flouve, melilotus, tonka, woodruff, deertongue, etc., but also as an individual note to be introduced whenever a truly herbaceous-sweet undertone is required: in lavender, fougere, chypre, colognes, tea-notes, tabac-notes, forest notes and various bouquets.”
