- Dilute with Fractionated Coconut or Bourbon Vanilla 30%, not Sunflower! Review by white_rabbit334
- I've started blending everything with f-coconut oil now, and the difference is incredible! This is a slightly aquatic, slightly muddy, super-heady floral scent. It's almost medicinal at first, but if you sweeten it with bourbon vanilla 30%, it is out of this world...! Of course, as it's essential and not diluted, it may be a bit difficult to use at first; if you hate vanilla, but love aquatic blends, use the f-coconut oil and blend away. With my chemistry this becomes entrancing and hypnotic, deeply sweet, maybe even---dare I say slightly minty? It certainly is very fresh and 'wet' smelling. I haven't tried the Pink Lotus yet, but to be honest, I'm not sure you could *pay* me to switch from the white to pink. The White Lotus Absolute has me absolute-ly (ha-ha!) hooked ^_~ (Posted on 2/15/13)
- Mmmmmmmmmmm! Review by White Rabbit
- Goodness gracious, what an absolute! I was worried at first because 3/4 of the sample was stuck in the cap, but a little sunflower oil worked that right out. The smell is floral and slightly sweet, incredibly aquatic; I can hardly begin to describe how wonderful it is. I added a few drops to a vanilla/amber/black pepper blend I've been working on, and it added this amazing, light, fruity-floral fragrance that enhances the depth already in the blend. Absolutely beautiful! (Posted on 10/1/12)
