Those virgin lilies all the night 

Bathing their beauties in the lake, 


That they may rise more fresh and bright, 

When their beloved sun's awake, 

Thouas Moore, Paradise and the Peri.


Blue Lotus Absolute (Nymphaea  caerulea) is a golden to bluish golden liquid which in cool temperatures may solidify into a soft waxy masswhen exposed to cold temperature. It rapidly becomes a flowable liquid with gentle heat. The olfactory characteristics of Blue Lotus Absolute vary significantly depending on the country where the flowers are harvested and the exact method of extraction. The Sri Lankan blue lotus is some of the finest I have smelled.

The Blue Lotus absolute displays a delicate, soft, sweet floral-powdery, aquatic bouquet with a elegant spicy undertone.

In natural perfumery is used in sacred perfumes, garland essences, high class florals.
