This is a rare Opoponax Absolute, not to be confused with the more common essential oil. Sometimes referred to as sweet myrrh, this sweet syrupy essence is warm, complex and amazing. Exhibiting a full array of the most coveted aromas of vanilla, oak, honey, and leather! A strong and utterly gorgeous fixative for pure and natural perfumes, colognes, fragrance creation, candles and more.
Our Opopanax Resin Absolute is challenging to source, whereas the essential oil is much more easily acquired but very different in many ways. Opoponax Absolute is a long lasting base note, with a sweeter, warmer aroma than the essential oil. This base note is a great fixative for heavy, floral and powdery perfumes. Blends well with all citrus and helps top notes last much longer. Famously used in abundance in the formulation of vintage Coco and Shalimar perfumes. This is exceptional material. Highly recommended.
