22nd March at 10.05am: Hello World, Adam here with a quick progress report! First thank you of course to the many who have placed orders, most appreciated. As I type should you place an order, please note the lead time is 5 working days before we will be able to assemble your order. This Sunday by 3pm Italy time I am going to release my Onycha Shells co-distilled in 33 year AGED Mysore sandalwood for sale. 10ml price is 350 Euros due to age of the sandalwood used. Also, if you are shopping around for Jasmine Absolute, Violet Absolute or Rose Absolute Turkish, my current batches are exceptionally beautiful – zero gassy aspects in the top, incredible body, excellent development and just so blissfully perfect from start to finish. For those musing on larger weights I can offer my Turkish Rose Absolute (batch TRSGAA01) at 2450 Euros plus vat per kilo and can offer this for 2300 Euros per kilo on a 3 kilo buy – 6900 euros plus vat. I will write again on Sunday afternoon. Thanks, Adam : )

Adam Michael has this to say “One of the best rose ottos I have ever experienced and possibly only on par with the Persian Petals Otto, this Rose Bulgarian Otto literally shines with its dewy-fresh, translucent and softly addictive enchanting fragrance.
The head notes are luminous, juicy, diffusive rosy-lemony. Very slowly the aroma charmingly progresses to a graceful fresh rose petals heart. Whilst rose absolute materials tend to be sweeter and earthly, this essential oil is all about fresh rose petals in the mid spring breeze, so airy, suave and heavenly it almost doesn’t belong on earth.
An exceptionally bright and vibrant material. We are honoured to be able to carry this Rose Bulgarian Otto after so many years of disappointing (and ridiculously expensive) batches sampled. Regarding uses, of course a must for creating luxurious rose bases, works wonders within no expense spared, Oriental, Fougere, Chypre and floral creations, pairs especially well with Bourbon geraniums, and is invaluable every time you need to soften and bring a composition together, a heart note in the truest sense.”
Botanical Name: Rosa damascena
At Hermitage Oils, we ♥ love rose aromatics so very much, that we have now created a category dedicated to roses here.

The smell took me back to the ancient silk road thousands of years ago, when the camels of Persian caravans smelled of tea and spices, and the otto rose stood out.

This rose otto is bright shining rose bliss. Sweet and balanced throughout. I prefer rose otto over absolute and I will for sure stock up more of this exquisite material with my next order.

My Bulgarian rose was bought from the Hermitage more than a year ago, during which time it has become more mature. Crisp citrus shades have become softer, they no longer dominate the top notes, but gently intertwine with honey and floral. Warm balsamic and cream tones are great in the base, along with nuances of spices and dried fruits.
A classic bouquet of fresh pink roses that can be admired endlessly, and every time it manifests its feminine changeable character in an unexpected and intriguing way.
