The fresh honey sweet Elderflowers of Sambucus nigra yield an absolute that is a semi solid dark green sometimes waxy material at cooler temps. In general the scent is perceived as intensely sweet and warm spicy floral, honey like, with faint notes of anise. Very complex and beautiful and a highly concentrated absolute that cannot just be simply smelled and observed from the vial or bottle. Dilution in perfumers alcohol or any carrier oil has gorgeous effects.
Elderflower Absolute is a precious material and not much is needed in most any circumstance. It can lend interesting warm floral effects in trace amounts.The smallest drop can have profound effects in perfumes, creams, skincare lines, lip balms, products and so much more. Such a fun scent material to work with and explore in dilution. It blends well with Bergamot, oakmoss, ylang ylang, base note blends and more.
The pure options give you the choice of diluting into alcohol or oil at any concentration. We also offer a pre mixed option (20% 1ml in 4ml Jojoba Oil in drop down menu) which is 1ml of pure Elderflower absolute mixed into 4ml Organic clear jojoba oil. This is still highly concentrated and can be diluted further if needed into other oils or waxes etc.
