A recent visit to Grasse, France left our noses captivated by the complexity of this Blackcurrant Bud Absolute, also known by its French name â€œBourgeons de Cassis Absoluteâ€. To produce this absolute only flower buds are collected for extraction. Use Blackcurrant Bud Absolute to impart an opulent sweet wine-like middle note in perfume accords.
Blackcurrant, Ribes nigrum, produces round black berries which are used in culinary dishes and beverages. The plants used for this absolute come from organic cultivation in the Burgundy Region of France where blackcurrant berries are integral to wine making. The extracted flower buds yield an absolute with a distinctive strong blackcurrant aroma used in perfumery rather than aromatherapy. However, with such a calming aroma you may find this absolute useful in anti-anxiety or meditation blends.Aromatherapy use
