Now and then, as we journeyed on, there came 
to us, wafted on the wandering wind, the sweet and 
refreshing scents of the country-side : the gathered 
fragrance of countless wild -flowers, the cool fresh 
odours of the woods and hawthorn hedges, and 
above all the delicious aroma of new-mown hay 
perfumes , finer far than any that mere money can 
buy. How crude seem the best productions of 
Bond Street compared to the rare fragrance of a 
bean - field in blossom, or that of gorse, or of 
flowering clover to enumerate only a few of the 
scents which Nature in such lavishness sweetens 
the country air in the fair summer-time.
"Untravelled England" 
Hissey, James John

Hay absolute, extracted from numerous high mountain grasses of France, pourable in this 30% dilution, displaying a soft, suave, warm, sweet, dry, coumarinic,herbaceous bouquet with a dried fruit/jam-like undertone. As the aroma begins to disperse into the environment from the perfumers strip, one realizes that absolute has fine diffusive power and tenacity with a uniform dryout from top-note to base-note.

The classis use for hay absolute is in new mown hay compostions but also finds use in amber bases, chypre, high class florals, forest notes, colognes, literary perfumes, tea notes and fougere. Its sweet, suave, herbaceous/fruity undertone is wonderful for rounding off rough edges in transitions between different stages of the aromatic life of many compositions.
