Premium Labdanum absolute – Spain – Cistus ladaniferus var. beta maculata
The products made from labdanum are more marked than the cistus extracts. They always develop these characteristic ambery side but are differentiated by fruity and liquorice notes.
Among the extracts of labdanum, this absolute is the closest to the cistus products. Compared to our Cistus SEV absolute the clear labdanum is fresh and resinous rising notes in top and more subtle leathery and animalic notes.
This absolute blends perfectly with woody and ambery ingredients. It brings roundness and body to chypre and oriental accords. Its leathery facets are often associated with certain opulent flowers to bring an ambery side.
The absolute is of thick consistency but not solid and will require Baine Marie or gentle heating.
