Galbanum Absolute (Ferula galbaniflua) - Iran

Scents of Earth
$15.95

Galbanum absolute is extracted from the oleo-gum-resin of the herbaceous perennial Ferula galbaniflua, which is native to Turkey and Iran. Extraction mainly occurs in France from imported Iranian galbanum. The odor is warm, rich, pungent, green-resinous, woody, balsamic with a mellow, dry undertone. The intense penetrating top notes so evident in the essential oil are mellowed considerably in the absolute. The absolute possesses fine tenacity and a fine fixative in its own right, contributing unique olfactory properties to compositions. It finds use in lavender bouquets, fougere, Oriental bases, chypres, pine fragrances, woody bases, moss odors. It is considered a classic addition to hyacinth perfumes. Wonderful in incense as well as sacred perfumes.

Blends well with lavender essential oils and absolutes (ab), hyacinth ab, violet leaf ab, cinnamon bark, geranium, pine needle, fir balsam, styrax, bergamot, yuzu, patchouli, lemon verbena, lemon balm, ylang ylang, labdanum.

"As for spices, never would your nostrils meet such an odor: bdellium from Scinde, musk from Tibet, galbanum from Khorasan; from Afghanistan, asafetida; from Persia, sagapenum; ambergris and civet from Zanzibar, and from Zanzibar came ivory, too. And from Zeila, Berbera, and Shehri came balsam and frankincense. . ." --from Messer Marco Polo by Brian Oswald Donn-Byrne (1889-1928)
