Frangipani is the common name applied to the genus Plumeria.
The aroma of this hexane free extracted Frangipani is nothing short of a Ménage à trois between floral, citrusy and buttery notes, with a sweetness appearing almost culinary. Frangipani is an exotic floral that is deeply intense, luscious, creamy, fruity, sweet, with a nuance of apricot.
The hexane free extraction of Frangipani renders a clear and profound concentrated aroma. Solvent extracted examples of Frangipani exhibit harsh notes, tend to be oddly spicy while failing to capture the smooth creamy honey-floral yet fruity side. This is why we only stock hexane free extracted, costly yes, but truly represents the best aromatic notes and aroma-therapeutic quality.
This absolute represents fresh flowers from Plumeria alba grown in Thailand with hexane free processing performed in France.
All absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature with Frangipani Absolute being no exception. Frangipani absolute should not be evaluated in its absolute state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted aroma. This is true for any absolute really. For those inexperienced with absolutes, we strongly recommend they be evaluated only after dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance, especially the rare and exotic notes, will become lost in a state of confusion to those with untrained olfactory senses.
Frangipani is almost exclusively used in the high end designer perfume industry due to its unique aroma that is captivating, alluring and sensuously euphoric possessing reputed aphrodisiac qualities. Properly diluted, Frangipani Absolute can be used in candle and soap making quite successfully, along with home fragrance items.
The reputed properties of Frangipani consist of its innate ability to calm, soothe, and induce pleasure (aphrodisiac), although it also has antioxidant skin refreshing properties and is used in night creams, lotions, preventative preparations and deep cleansing lotions.
