Spearmint Absolute

Joseph Colbourne has this to say “Spearmint absolute immediately reminds me of the “pure chewing satisfaction,” the slogan of Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum. A solvent-extracted absolute of deep green color and pourable viscosity, this is what I would call ultra-spearmint—juicy, warm, herbaceous, super-sweet. Its mentholic nature opens the nose, evoking cool, fresh mountain air, blue skies and billowy clouds. Its diffusiveness and tenacity is formidable, so it is suggested to use this material with a light hand and incorporate into blends as an accent note. With this spearmint absolute, you can enhance herbs such as basil and rosemary, create subtle effects with green accords, citrus, geranium, rose, and other florals.”
