Labdanum Absolute - Clear
- Rich and delightful Review by Nancy
- I have a big crush on this scent. It adds a warm, deep, woody feel to my blends and I made myself a dilution in oil just to wear as a single note. As a beginner, I found it very easy to work with as well. (Posted on 7/13/13)
- If you enjoy the scent of amber resin.... Review by white_rabbit334
You're going to absolutely ADORE this oil. It's spicy, warm, turns into an incense note with my chemistry and is one of the main components to the amber resin you tend to find floating around. Whenever I ran out, I blended this with a little vanilla and Liquidamber oils---ironically, the Liquidamber doesn't even really *smell* like amber resin to me until you add the Labdanum, despite their names. Granted, this is just my opinion, yours may vary slightly. Regardless, I consider this an essential base note in all my favorite perfumes (except chai blends =) ); I consider this the incense-like note that gives a blend that smoky, mysterious chemistry that is seductively addictive.
I find this blends well with a little bit of lotus, vanilla, pepper, liquidamber and tonka. =) What can I say, I really love the sweet and spicy! This would also CONSIDERABLY enhance rose oils, cinnamon, and other earthy oils to an otherworldly, blissful experience. (Posted on 2/15/13)
