Soluble: Alcohol and oils
Back In Stock! Orris Root (15% Irones), also known as Orris Butter, is soluble in alcohol or oils. Above ground Iris germanica is a lovely flower often referred to as bearded iris. Although a beautiful flower it is the roots that are the source for extracting this marvelous essential oil. Orris Root with high irone content is considered a top fixative in perfumery with its soft violet-like aroma that is best observed when highly diluted.
We previously stocked Orris Root 10% Irones. Repeated requests from perfumers led to replacing our Orris 10% with this exquisite Orris Butter with 15% Irones. Orris Root with 1% and 3% Irones is not pure and is soluble only in fixed oils. Our Orris (15% Irones) is PURE and soluble in both alcohol and fixed oils.
