- Fresh, green, lavendaceous, and fruity! Review by BShea
- Rhododendron leaf: I was always curious about it, so I got a sample. I really like it. It's a very pleasant green, leafy fragrance, rich and round, with coniferous and lavender-like nuances. It's odd, I put this with tangerine essence (distilled from the juice) and it ended up smelling like pineapple! It's really great with lavender, coriander, and bergamot. I think it would be great for colognes, green blends and green florals. This oil mixed with tangerine, lime, white champaca, and black currant bud would make a great tropical fruit-like accord for a tropical blend (then I would add ylang ylang, and plumeria to the heart note) It is colorless and a mobile liquid.
