Tomato Leaf Absolute 50%

Adam Michael has this to say “After a few years I have found a producer offering tomato LEAF absolute again – 100% pure with nothing added to it. Written as I did initially have an all-natural tomato leaf absolute in the past, only for the producer to change direction and move to offering mixed media creations. Something a few others online still sell to this day –  not declaring the situation has changed – as tomato leaf CO2 (America) or market as being a pure absolute (also America with out of date paperwork). I think it’s best to put on record, tomato leaf absolute doesn’t smell exactly like how a tomato tastes – and in pure form it never will. And let’s be completely open, unless you grow your own tomatoes you also will never know how good tomatoes can taste. The best here in Italy, in my opinion, being an Abruzzo variety (Pera d’Abruzzo)  – utterly delicious sliced up and served with a little Tuscan Olive oil and a sprinkling of red salt. But I digress!

In pure form this material is solid and smells vegetative, musty, soil earthy, green, a little woody, a little weedy and captures to a degree – the overall smell experience (heavier notes) of standing inside a greenhouse full of tomato plants. Due to being solid we offer this tomato leaf absolute in retail weights diluted to 50% in alcohol. The end result being a material that’s ready to use. Aromatically the dilution smells the same as in pure form, albeit softer and with the addition of noticeable grassy touches.

Wholesale weights offered in pure form.  

As for uses, I partially recycle what I have written in the past –  tomato leaf absolute is a must for colognes, violet bases, Summer meadow and green accords. Of a medium odour intensity, green in colour and of a pourable viscosity.”
