Product Overview

If you are looking for a soft, but potent green floral to add to your aromatic blends, our sumptuous Geranium Absolute has a soft yet intense, rich leafy/green aroma, with a persistent, sweet rose-like undertone and slight minty note in the drydown. It displays very good tenacity, conjuring up the aroma of springtime’s tender green shoots and fresh flowers as nature begins to yawn, stretch, and reawaken from winter’s long slumber. (Also known as Rose Geranium)

Geranium Absolute is recommended for adding a rich body note in natural perfumery applications where the absolute is preferable over the essential oil. Because it blends seamlessly with so many other aromatic materials, it is an invaluable ingredient to complement and/or amplify rose or other floral-based perfumes, to increase tenacity, and to add an interesting note to most any other natural perfume.

Native to South Africa, the Pelargonium genus includes around 270 unique species and is considered one of the most adaptable and modifiable in the botanical world. Producing a veritable symphony of aromatics, it boasts scents of rose, ginger, apple, coconut, strawberry, mint, nutmeg, citrus, pepper and more that are released from glandular leaf hairs, or trichomes. This enormous diversity of aromatic constituents, created for adaptation to many different habitats, is almost unequaled in the plant kingdom.[1] One could say that the Geraniums show great character and creativity while having the ability not only to get along with, but fully integrate within a multicultural botanical populace. When it comes to aromatic formulation, we know many natural perfumers who would agree!
