- Certificate of Analysis
Invaluable in natural perfumery, Vanilla smoothes rough edges, warms floral blends, and softens coniferous notes. Its fragrance is one of universal appeal as is its influence on the emotions – it invites sensuality, relaxes inhibitions, and dissolves anger and frustration. Try blending it with your favorite essential oils, absolutes and CO2 extracts.
Aromatic Profile: Very rich, warm, with a semi-bitter undertone, deeper than and not as sweet as our Vanilla Bourbon CO2. Adds a warm vanilla note in natural perfumery.
Appearance: Dark brown fluid with a thick molasses-like consistency that may require special use instructions to blend.
Use: Natural Perfumery, incense.
Blending Suggestions: Add drop by drop to your blends until the desired effect is achieved. We suggest using smaller amounts in your blends to start with; vanilla tends to “bloom” (increase in aroma) in formulas and perfumes as they age, with the potential to become predominant.
Completely soluble in alcohol and transparent, but cloudy when dissolved in fixed oils.
Safety Considerations: Dilute before using. A patch test should be performed before use for those with sensitive skin.
