Jonquil absolute is royalty among florals and no natural perfumer should be without this apricot noted floral. I was introduced to Jonquil by way of my old aromatic history books which wove romantic tales about fields of Jonquil in Grasse, the southern part of France where our precious, rare absolute hails from.
Jonquil is incredibly rare and precious. It has the tenacity that Gardenia, Osmanthus or any other heady florals might have: it stays put in a blend. The absolute smells of deep honey and a little of tobacco plus a good note of Tuberose. I pick up a little green hay and Hyacinth as well. This heart note floral literally blooms in a carrier oil or perfumers alcohol. I can’t imagine a more feminine blend or a more thoughtful gift for a friend.
Suggested use: in natural botanical perfumery blend. Blends well with Lemon, Vanilla (my favorite), Vetiver, and a little Violet leaf.
