Honey Acacia Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “Acacia honey absolute exudes a very dreamy, sticky-sweet, gourmand honey aroma throughout with sensual earthy and resinous nuances. Commonly used in cosmetics, blends well with most florals, gourmand materials and helps the heart notes of osmanthus, roses and orange blossom to really sing.”

Honey absolute is of quite a thick consistency, similar to syrup but this liquid becomes very mobile with a little bit of warmth. We advise placing the bottle in a bowl of warm water for 10-15 minutes and then removing the integral dropper cap from the bottle to make it easier to work with.

    When I was a child, I was pretty much convinced bees hated my guts, since they would often sting me even when unprovoked. Back then I used to think it was because I loved their precious honey so much that they knew it at sight, trying to protect their treasure from glutton me. Time went by, I chilled out and they stopped practicing natural acupuncture on me and my love for honey just grew over the years.

    I’ve tried, as a food, pretty much every European and South American honey variety in the market, along with some of African origin, and this is one the most richly composed I know. Less sweet than my Beeswax (albeit still pretty sweet), this offering leans toward a powdery-creamy profile rather than the ‘glassy’ texture of Eucalyptus honey. It is flowery but not dusty, mellifluous with just a hint of propolis that is often lost in its more acidic nature. Besides the usual pairings (citruses, gourmand accords etc), it blends well with salty/bitter herbs (Clary Sage, Artemisia and, especially, Coriander), dark woods (Oak, I’m looking at you!) and a blend of Palmarosa/Ho Wood that I often use to mimic a more woody Geranium but works even better with Honey.

    This is actually tricky to work with as it is completely solid at room temperature (even in a hot city in Brazil) and needs a bit of warmth to even exude any scent (around 55º C for 10 minutes should be enough, I just let it sit near a refrigerator’s engine). Although It is soluble in alcohol and in most oils I’ve tried so far, the texture is sticky-grainy and it is fairly difficult to get precise amounts of it to work with, so a scale is useful here since even a tiny bit excess of this material can overpower other scents.
