Birch White Essential Oil (Rectified)

Adam Michael has this to say “White birch oil is produced by a process referred to as ‘destructive distillation’. This process essentially involves gathering and crushing all plant parts which are then steam distilled over a number of hours which results in a material that looks similar to tar. This tar material is then rectified by vacuum distillation, removing the by-products deemed hazardous. All the hazardous waste has to be professionally discarded of course, a very costly process and that feeds into the price of this material.

The aroma of white birch is smoky, charred wood with strong tar and leather nuances throughout. In perfumery this is useful material for building smoky accords, forest notes, leather bases, pairs well with m-cresol, cade, oakmoss and labdanum.”

    White Birch is very potent and has an almost intrusive character. It is made of dark charred woods, traces of animal fat and vague bitter vegetal nuances, offering a dominant material that should be highly diluted to be fully experienced. If not properly used, you risk running around smelling like frying bacon.

    This is not the kind of thing one buys for delight, but for achieving desired effects. White Birch can turn a blend exactly in that cozy college campfire remembrance when mixed with woods and maybe some discreet fruit, or tell a fantastic story about Arabian caravans when blended with spices and amber. One wrong drop, though… the tale won’t be half as funny.

    All in all, Hermitage’s offering is the best I came to know, yet. Not too green, when White Birch’s menthol is too prominent, and not too burnt, when it smells like, well, coal. This one gets a perfect balance.
