Olive Fruity Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “To my nose the current batch is sea breeze fresh, green, with a subtle grass pepperiness one associates with a true quality olive. The colour of this solvent extracted olive absolute masterpiece is luscious grass green, of a pourable viscosity and good tenacity. In perfumery strengthens and modernises green notes, blends surprisingly well with seaweed absolute (colourless) and lends itself well to the creation of natural marine notes.”

Joseph Colbourne has this to say “With a translucent gold hue and moderate, pourable viscosity, olive absolute captures the fresh, peppery, briny aroma of olives. A humid, balmy, oily opening with mild notes of blue cheese soon develops into the cooler, refined aroma of a Mediterranean breeze. This is one of those rare materials that captures greenness without necessarily evoking grass or leaves. It is rather the greenness of sumptuous unripened olives with hints of green apple and pear. Olive fruity absolute has great longevity, lasting up to ten hours on the tester strip, and is recommended for use in marine accords, green blends (paired with galbanum), and to contrast with heavy florals.”
