Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of marigold tagetes is full of rich saturating character, resinous fruity, fruit boozy and herbaceous floral. Deep yellow to amber in colour, produced by steam distilling both the leaves and flowers and of a pourable viscosity.
Throughout Africa this plant is commonly referred to as ‘khaki bush’, a weed with deeply divided deep-green feathery leaves and numerous yellowish-orange carnation-like flowers. The leaves and flowers are a good insect repellent and are often seen hanging from native huts to deter swarms of flies and mosquitoes.
The therapeutic properties of marigold tagetes are rather great, anti-microbial, anti-spasmodic, antiseptic, insecticide and sedative. Also used for chest infections, coughs and catarrh, dilating the bronchi, facilitating the flow of mucus and dislodging congestion and can be used in cases of skin infections. It has a healing effect on wounds, cuts, calluses, blisters and bunions. It is an ingredient of many foot treatment preparations and is also used in some perfumes. The list of therapeutic uses is truly vast.”

Herbaceous: slightly minty at the start, fruity, clary sage/green tea leaves
– Dryness of saffron & tobacco, and somewhat remotely powdery to my nose
– Boozy and honey-like warm and sweet
– It does wonder to floral and resinous compositions. – I also tried with some wild Hainan (sinensis) oud oils in some experiments – especially the bitter, floral and resinous ones – quite beautiful outcomes.

Better than the flower! And I love smelling tagetes!
It greets with honey nuances – from within them a beer aroma arises. It gradually removes itself in favour of: well, Its Herbaceousness – tagetes. Very warm, somewhat fruity and sweet tagetes that later on becomes even warmer. It arrives to what I would imagine a sap-resin hybrid of tagetes would smell like.

Perfect blend of something sweet like honey with drop of bitterness. Deep, smooth, warm. Very sensual
