Genet (Broom) Absolute
Genêt (Broom) Absolute is a perfumer’s specialty oil with an intensely sweet hay-honey-floral fragrance, underscored with tea-herbal and tobacco-courmarin notes – Very fine!
- Like a meadow in a bottle Review by BShea
- This oil is thick, paste-like and a semi-opaque greenish-brown. It has a floral, honey-like odor with light tobaccoish nuances. It reminds me very much of cassie absolute. I'm usually not a big fan of these kinds of odors, but this is really nice. It really brings to mind a meadow. It would be perfect for a meadow-themed blend; add with some tuberose concrete, lavender absolute, tarragon, perhaps a bit of rose de mai and ylang ylang, with some oakmoss, tonka bean,and perhaps some Haitian vetiver in the base(and maybe some galbanum somewhere) and ta-da! You have a meadow in a bottle. If you were to use an isolate with this mix, anisaldehyde would be good (it smells like elderflowers, the edges of forests, and, well, meadows!). (Posted on 3/1/13)
