Our organically crafted Vanilla Absolute is extracted from the dried bean (pods) of the Bourbon Vanilla planifolia, originating from Madagascar. Our Vanilla Absolute has a deep, sweet, warm, rich, characteristic Vanilla aroma with caramel and chocolate-like nuances and deep balsamic undertones.
Bourbon Vanilla is a specific term applied to Vanilla planifolia plants growing in the Indian Ocean islands. Its fragrance is one of universal appeal as is its influence on the emotions: it invites sensuality, relaxes inhibitions, and dissolves anger and frustration. Vanilla Absolute is used as a base note to smooth rough edges, warm floral blends, and soften coniferous notes in natural perfumery.
