Thyme Absolute

Arctander has this to say “Thyme absolute is very viscous, dark green liquid or a semi-solid mass. Its odor is very deep-herbaceous, sweet and somewhat green with a rich, spicy undertone and faintly medicinal, but pleasant bodynote. This product is useful in perfumery for its peculiar effect which is entirely different from that of the thyme oil. In traces, the absolute can introduce beautifully natural notes in jasmin, hyacinth, violet, etc, and it lends a rich herbaceous note in fougere, chypre, colognes, etc, where it blends well with citrus oils, lavender, oakmoss, patchouli, isobornylacetate, etc.”
