Vanilla Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “Our vanilla absolute is produced by solvent extraction then purification through alcoholic washing. The aroma oozes dreamy vanillic goodness, sweet playful woody notes infused with ambery warmth. Useful for building honey-sweet florals, Oriental bases, improving gourmand notes especially cocoa rich ones and works wonders with heavy florals. Easier to handle with bain-marie and with patience and the aid of an automatic mixer this material will dilute in perfumers alcohol, by hand it is an almost impossible task.”

Arctander has this to say “Vanilla Absolute is a dark brown, clear and viscous liquid of very rich, sweet and true-to-nature odor. An odor-flavor description of this product would not be correct without the remark that the flavor is strongly dependent upon the type of vanilla used in the extraction.
