Sweet Cassie Absolute is extracted from the flowers of the Acacia farnesiana tree, which belongs to the same 'Acacia' family as Mimosa. The aroma of Sweet Cassie is described as divine by master perfumer Steffen Arctander and "a warm, powdery-spicy, herbaceous and floral scent with a deep and tenacious cinnamic-balsamic undertone. This absolute is used in high-cost perfumes to lend a unique warmth and woody-floral note".
Cassie Absolute production is scarce, with less than 100 kg of absolute produced worldwide every year. The low-yield ratio of flowers to oil and the delicacy of the flowers themselves contribute to Sweet Cassie's high expense and value. However, its captivating aromatic qualities make it worth the cost. One whiff of this treasured absolute mesmerizes in an instant and continues to do so without fail.
With its thick, semi-liquid texture, Sweet Cassie reminds us that sometimes the sweetest things in life require a little warmth and patience to fully appreciate.
