Balsam of Peru Absolute
The absolute of Balsam Peru Myroxylon peruiferum displays a suave, rich sweet balsamic bouquet with a spicy vanilla-like undertone with excellent tenacity.
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....
