Osmanthus Absolute is obtained from the Osmanthus fragrans plant which is also known as ‘sweet olive’. Even if it’s now grown on many continents, the blossoming tree is very common in China where the flowers are used to make tea, syrup or jam.
The absolute is produced in China by solvent extraction of the tree’s fragrant orange flowers, producing a brown green yellowish liquid. Highly sought after in perfumery, it takes about 3,000 kilos of flowers to create around one kilo of absolute. Yes, it’s a lot!
** It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – become lost.
Absolutes can be very viscous or even solid and can be difficult to extract from the bottle. Gently warming the absolute in a water bath will melt the product and make it easier to use.
