A silken sea, a sea of damassin,
With figured foam as flowers wove therein,
Where all the winds walk lightly.
From afar -- Clean-carven on the skies of cinnabar --
The palmy isles like azure malachite,
Along the horizon for a time retard
A morning fraught with frankincense and nard,
And purple fires, and amber-scented light,
And flame like flame of perfumes. 
-Clark Ashton Smith

The Frankincense/Cedarwood absolute (Boswellia carterii/Juniperus virginiana) which is coextracted in France is a colorless to pale yellow flowable liquid displaying a perfect balance of rich, balsamic, resinous notes of frankincense with the deep, dry, precious woods, earthy notes of Virginia cedarwood giving it a very ancient and sophisticated bouquet of good tenacity.

In natural perfumery it is used in sacred perfumes, incense bouquets, Oriental bases, precious woods notes, amber bases, colognes, after shave lotions, spice notes and a general fixative in most perfume types.
