Adam Michael has this to say “Jonquille absolute exudes an infusion of sweet honey and mimosa, entwined with a sticky medicinal hue bubbling within the top notes. Upon development the middle notes become very clear and dominant. For me this is a playful, sassy, smouldering rumba of orange blossom, blackcurrants and tuberose. The base notes are again tuberose themed but possessing a slightly darker side due to trace notes reminiscent of tobacco and hay with a lashing of warm nutty narcissus poeticus goodness. Dark yellow in colour, of a pourable viscosity, of exceptional tenacity and produced from the flowers by solvent extraction.”
Joseph Colbourne has this to say “Jonquille absolute is a rare and marvelous beauty. Opening with mimosa, fresh, dewey spring jonquilles, heady white floral depth, this absolute is dynamic, ethereal, tenacious and rich. The heart is an amalgam of tuberose, orange flower, a tinge of champaca, and it ‘shines’ brightly even two hours in. as it dries down, we discover beeswax, tobacco facets accompanying the aforementioned group of florals. After ten hours on the strip, we get some hazelnut, further tobacco impressions, and predominant tuberose. A floral absolute with surprising tenacity, this could be used even in small amounts to impart a notable lift in precious florals, oriental florals, floral-green creations.
Arctander has this to say “Jonquil absolute blends excellently well with jasmin, violet leaf absolute, orange flower absolute, longozza, ylang-ylang and other heavy florals, or with powerful green-floral absolutes.”

To me it lies between karo karounde and ylang ylang absolute.
It goes quite well with resins, ouds, white florals, incense notes, chypre and oriential framework. I use it in an incense based perfume. Highly recommended.

What a stunner! A lot of longevity! I did an interesting twist on a melon perfume- a smatter of Juniper Berry, and a little POW to the tropical fragrance with this little wonder. This is a classic Jonquille. So versatile. It just makes me happy whenever I smell it. The world turns golden- like yellow sunglasses just dropped over my eyes. Mmmm!

Absolutely Love this one, used it in a blend yesterday and will wait for the Magic to happen.

I’m a bit disappointed by the smell of this oil. I had expected a floral scent, but to me it’s more like mowed hay. I still have to find out in what blend I can use it, but I guess it would be a masculine perfume.

Happiness in a bottle. I am jealously guarding my stash since life without this liquid gold would be hard to bear. I started a few years ago with just 1ml and became hopelessly addicted to the effect on the spirit of this versatile and visually beautiful absolute. Even in minute amounts it will elevate anything you do with it and, quite literally, turn everything it touches into gold.
