Immortelle Absolute

Helichrysum italicum var. picardii [synonym of Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G.Don] 

(13)

The aroma of our Immortelle Absolute is herbaceous, hay-like and honeyed, with a smoky tobacco and musk-like undertone; it has an extraordinary ability to round off and ‘bouquet’ a composition that may need ‘life’ and naturalness.[1]

Product Overview

Please Note: If you are looking for Immortelle Essential Oil, please see our Organic Helichrysum SKU 424.

The aroma of our Immortelle Absolute is herbaceous, hay-like and honeyed, with a smoky tobacco and musk-like undertone; it has an extraordinary ability to round off and ‘bouquet’ a composition that may need ‘life’ and naturalness.[1]

Helichrysum italicum means ‘golden sun of Italy’ and is evocative of the stunning habitat of this plant in its bright maize-colored meadows. Immortelle is French for ‘immortal’ or ‘everlasting’ and refers to the straw-like flowers that appear living when, in fact, dried – in a bright yellow color as if frozen in time. This plant is part of the Asteraceae (daisy) family and is often called the 'curry plant' due to the unusual and pungent odor of the leaves. It is also the source of Helichrysum essential oil, a perennial staple for many aromatherapy enthusiasts.

In perfumery, Immortelle has traditionally been used in chypre, floral, and amber compositions; its warm, tobacco, tea, liqueur, and wood notes blend well with woody, fougère, or leathery accords, and its warmth can be used to illuminate compositions.[6] Perfume blogger N. further states that “Immortelle [absolute] is akin to the assoluta voice with the rich darkness of a contralto and the ringing bells of a soprano – it simply pierces through the thickest of compositions.”[7]

Sweet warmth in a bottle

Rating

What a gorgeous, complex, sweet scent. When I dilute this by gently warming and it blends nicely. Whenever I smell Immortelle, I detect honey, butterscotch, tobacco, green herbs, and a touch of healthy musky sweat - in a good way. Every perfume needs a little funk to feel rounded and complete, like adding a little salt to a cake. A little bit goes a long way. Try with dark patchouli and roasted coffee EO. It's amazing!

gourmande hay bale

Rating

This batch is fully consistent with my previous obtained directly from the producer. This went into solution at 1:1.8 (by mass) in 95EtOH (assisted by a platform shaker); the 8-oz bottle from Eden yielded 262 grams of immortelle. Much more here than curry and cut hay. I've never really figured it out; but I like the way it makes me feel. I can recognize its role in the original AG Sables (EdP strength as Annick mixed it), but this absolute is more grounded, less maple, less pepper, more peaceful.

Winner Absolute

Rating

A few days ago I am working with this absolute immortal for the development of a masculine perfume and everything happened like this: a clothing brand in Colombia contacted me to formulate a masculine fragrance with notes of liquor, wine and coffee memories. I immediately went to immortall Abs. EB .. in a series of 4 samples, the one that had an absolute immortality as the central theme was the winner and they told me that it smells exactly what we want ... Sweet wine, coffee with honey and this was a formula: 5% SOLUTION! that had kept for two years ... a total of 12 aromatic compounds subtly wrapped by this spectacular immortal for an initial production of 400 perfumes and will take proud 15 ml of this Absolute ...

Curry/ changing into honey hay and more

Rating

This stuff is thick like epoxy, the first whiff is curry, definitely culinary. I took out the equivalent of a couple of drops and put it into FCO. I think it has dissolved, the scent changed completely hay honey slight floral, all low, persistent still a slight touch of curry. Very complex, very long lasting in paste form. Worth the money, I am grateful to be able to buy in such a small amount, EB you are so very good to us to cater at this level. This is the kind of scent that is what makes it fun to create.
