Myrrh CO2 ORGANIC (SELECT)

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of organic myrrh CO2 is balsamic warm, cream sweet, oriental spicy and extremely tenacious. This material blends well with frankincense, sandalwood, opoponax and benzoin to name just a few. Myrrh also complements patchouli so beautifully and actually excels in adding warmth, depth and character to patchouli materials of young age.

Therapeutically, myrrh blended down at 50% in organic sweet almond is a very good way to treat mouth and gum infections. All you do is add a few drops of the 50:50 blend you have made to a glass of warm water and gargle for a minute and then spit it all out. Repeat after meals and upto 3 times per day. Massaging this 50:50 material  onto the throat area will also help those suffering with a sore throat and/or voice loss.

This organic CO2 is a select extract, rich golden honey yellow in colour, very sticky but of a pourable viscosity and the major constituents are 23.7% curzerene, 37.7% isolindestrene and 17.3% lindestrene.”

    I was confused when I first sniffed it neat from the bottle. All I thought I knew about Myrrh was from commercial perfumes with a ‘very prominent Myrrh note’ and it smells nothing like that. It is bitter-ish while still being sweet, hot without making your eyes water, uncomfortable yet cozy and, well, addictive despite/because of all that? I didn’t know what to do with it before diluting, then it made sense.

    It must be brought at least up to 50% to be fully appreciated (although I like it neat, nowadays). At the 50-50 mark, it becomes sweeter, but still a bit too feral. Around the 30%-25% mark lies my sweet spot, when this material becomes majestic, mystical. This offering is a great introduction to Myrrh since I think other types (like the Ghugul and the Black Myrrh) are a tad more complex and, thus, even more difficult to comprehend.

    My only gripe here, that eats up one star, is versatility. I love to tweak with scents and Myrrh seems to do what it does and that’s it. It certainly pairs well with other resins, and base notes such as Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver etc, but I couldn’t blend it successfully, yet, with fruits without making a saccharine mess, or with herbs without making it smell like bad medicine or with flowers without feeling like I opened a gate to the land of the dead. The problem, though, lies within my abilities since I’m having a hard time figuring out how to use this sticky and dominant resin properly.
