What is feeeel... the smell..?


The odour and uses of Olibanum Essential Oil

Odour=> Olibanum opens with a strong but pleasant citrus. As it begins to develop, the resinous, almost buttery-warm wood quality emerges. It is sweet, lemon woody, and coniferous, but it can be considered the most refined coniferous resin (as some coniferous oils can be sharp and remind people of cleaning products—this is not at all the case with rich olibanum essential oil). Olibanum essential oil has a rich, resinous sweetness, not the kind of sweetness of candy floss or sugary. Other descriptors: woody, fresh, faint spicy, sweet, resin, balsam

Synaesthesia=>religious ceremony, applying rich and expensive oils to Jesus’s feet

Perfume-Uses=>For citrus-piney, olibanum, frankincense, old wood, fresh woody, terpeney, warm sweet, oriental leather, chypre, mens cistus, incense, citrus verbena, verveine, spicy

Just-try-it=>In the style of some Amouage fragrances; Epic Man, Memoir Man
