Juniper Berries Absolute 50%

Adam Michael has this to say “Juniper berries absolute is a luscious grassy green colour and diluted to 50% by us in ethanol which enables a ready to use material. Produced by solvent extracting the berries, and the aroma is a warm, comforting, loving, rich, mixed berries fruity scent. Also exuding a seductive, sticky, fulsome, amber and vanilla like sweetness. These notes aside the scent also has an early morning forest freshness about it that seems to move in and out of detection from start to finish.”

Joseph Colbourne has this to say “A highly viscous, brilliant deep green solvent-extracted material, Juniper berries absolute is an undulating impression of the fruiting bodies of Juniperus communis. it opens with sticky coniferous exudates mingled with mixed forest berries, stewed fruits, and damp, mossy forest floors. Weaving in and out of nose is the exact experience of crushing a juniper berry picked straight from the tree. My personal experience is that it evokes childlike glee as I loved to crush the fragrant berries as a young one. Notably, this lacks the pungent, peppery aspects of the EO and is rather far more resinous and balsamic in nature. Though an absolute, this would be classified as a top to heart note and could be valuable as an opener in herbal aromatics, fresh green blends, mossy woods, and even marine accords.”
