Labdanum Absolute Premium SPAIN

Adam Michael has this to say “The opening notes of labdanum absolute are heavy-resinous-pine, amber, floral, light-woody, balsamic with a Mediterranean citrus melody. The heart notes are sweet woody, rich amber balsamic, sweet soft lemony, cough medicinal with a note comparable to the taste of eating black coloured wine gums. The base notes are warm, heavy amber, floral, pine shavings, woody. This absolute is produced by solvent extracting the Spanish labdanum gum-resin. We also now offer Labdanum Resin Absolute Super Premium from Cyprus.”

Joseph Colbourne has this to sayA thick, mahogany brown semi-liquid from Spain, this absolute evokes for me wet damn leaves, a walk through a deciduous forest in Vermont, mid-October, after a soft rain, looking under stones for earwigs and pillbugs as a child. Labdanum embodies both autumnal radiance and formidable depth, its resinous, balsamic offering meditative countenance upon inhalation. As it dries, leather drunks in attics, the powdery aroma of aging glue in book binders, incense in solemn churches, dim light through rose windows and crepuscular mystery come to mind. There are notes of oak, sycamore trees, leather, moss, fossilized amber, the understory of a forest. This is a brilliant labdanum of profound fixative value; as a base, it will anchor blends ravishingly.”
