Peru Balsam eo / Sweet, Balsamic, Vanillic, Ambery, Resinous/$22 oz

Peru Balsam essential oil from El Salvador is a amber colored liquid  displaying a sweet, balsamic, vanilla like bouquet with a fine, delicate, spicy-woody undertone of excellent tenacity. The oil from El Salvador displays a unique olfactory complexity.

In natural pefumery it is an a excellent fixative as its suave bouquet acts as as a perfect medium for smoothly blending together the various essences contained in a blend and allowing them to slowly diffuse into the atmosphere. It is an excellent addition to incense bouquets, sacred perfumes, precious woods notes, high class florals, balsamic accords 

"The tenacity in odor of this oil is outstanding making it one of the best fixatives among all essential oils. Its suave odor makes Peru Balsam oil a very versatile perfume material which can be incorporated in almost any type of perfume base or perfume in concentrations of from less than one percent up to more than five per cent. For delicate floral fragrances such as muguet, lilac, appleblossom, etc, this oils blends excellently with floral as well as with balsamic or spicy notes. With araucaria oil or sandalwood oil it blends to a delightfully sweet "precious wood" type like cabreuva oil. In gardenian, longoza, tuberose and carnation bases or duplications it forms and important part of the long-lasting undertone with undecanolide, nonanolide, ylang-ylang and other heavy and sweet floral notes. It imparts depth, and natural spicy sweetness to a rose and warm, balsamic body in ambre or Oriental bases, "powder" type fragrances, etc....
