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!

You MUST try this one!

I recently ordered a sample of this Geranium Absolute, more out of curiosity than anything, as I had no plans or thoughts of using it for any particular purpose. And I am not generally a big lover of the floral fragrances in the first place. But WOW is this absolute nice! The more I sniff it on test strips (or a tiny dab on my shirt), the more I am attracted to it. Yes, it has a strong rose element to it, but there is also a soft yet persistent greenness in it that I really like, as well as a subtle but equally persistent mint-like component that blends beautifully with everything else. And tenacious! I don't think I've encountered any other absolute that can match it in this regard, even rose or jasmine. I went for a long hike a few days ago, after having wiped just a smidgen of this on my shirt, and it was wonderful to keep getting wafts of the unfolding fragrance and multidimensional nuances from it as I hiked --- and I was wearing a jacket over the shirt! This absolute puts any of the geranium EOs I have, or have tested, to shame. If you want ANYTHING geranium, forget everything else and buy this instead. It deserves more than five stars!

After smell

Rating

If it was not for the solvent after smell I would say this is a perfect geranium. It smells really good, better than most I have smelled.

The best geranium you will ever smell

Rating

Eden Botanicals has consistently surprised me with their ability to convert me to oils I previously hated. ;) I never liked lavender until I found their lavender absolute, and I never liked geranium, until I found this geranium absolute. If you're looking for a deep, intoxicating floral note, this is one to keep an eye on! If you're unfamiliar with geranium, it can sometimes smell quite sickly sweet and juvenile, like a cheap ugly rose substitute. This is the farthest thing possible from that, it has incredible depth and tenacity. It works like magic in blends, anchoring and pulling everything together. I really appreciate EB's high standards, they really source only the most exquisite (and sustainable) materials. Check out their geranium rose, it's also incredible and so unlike the cheap geraniums out there on the market! Thank you, Eden Botanicals, for always proving me wrong and helping me fall in love with notes I thought I hated. You are the best!
