  • Product # 1181

  • Origin Canada

I first observed about ten days ago that the fresh shoots of the fir balsam (Abies balsamifera), found under the tree wilted, or plucked and kept in the pocket or in the house a few days, emit the fragrance of strawberries, only it is somewhat more aromatic and spicy. It was to me a very remarkable fragrance to be emitted by a pine. A very rich, delicious, aromatic, spicy fragrance, which if the fresh and living shoots emitted, they would be still more to be sought after.
Henry David Thoreau

Fir Balsam Coeur Absolute is extracted from the needles and small branches of the conifer Abies balsamea growing in Eastern Canada. It is an brownish-green very viscous liquid requiring gentle heating to be readily pourable liquid. The absolute displays a rich, warm, green, resinous bouquet with a sweet, woody, delicate coumarinic undertone of excellent tenacity.

In natural perfumery it is used in holiday bouquets, forest notes, sacred perfumes, incense bouquets, colognes, new mown hay, amber notes
