The odour and uses of Rose de Mai Absolute

Odour=> Rose de Mai Absolute is rose with a spicy, balsamic, and prominent mossy character. As an absolute, it is the heaviest and richest of all the roses. Rose de Mai is complex containing top, middle, and base notes of its own. The opening is balsamic and very oily; in its undiluted form it leaves a thick russet colour on the smelling strip. As it settles, it takes on a sweeter, narcotic character and loses some of its mossy nature. In the final stages of the dry down, the top and mid notes are still apparent but the spicy, clove/eugenol aspect becomes more noticeable. When added to a formula it can produce a beautiful if faint lychee quality; Other key descriptors: balsamic, rose, petals, faint honey, spicy, clove, yeast, moss, faint phenol

Synaesthesia=> A table has been laid with rich loaf; spices and halfmoon slivers of nuts hang on its dark crust. Family is here and your heart is warm. Big sister has come home from the perfumery. As she opens the door, the air is suddenly awake with beauty. She hands an empty basket to the maid, the source of this gift which has made the family holiday alight with fragrant dreams. Family, heart, love

Perfume-Uses=> For all types of muguet fragrances, adds richness and beauty
