Absinthe Fragrance Oil

Absinthe Fragrance Oil
Description:

Absinthe Fragrance Oil

A fragrance oil by Natures Garden-  Absinthe, also referred to as "The Green Fairy", is an anise-flavored, highly alcoholic beverage derived from the distillation of various herbs; including wormwood.  Absinthe was once banned around the world because it was portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug that produced hallucinations, but this vilification of the liquor was never verified.  The ban on absinthe was lifted in the USA in 2007, and the sales of absinthe have skyrocketed since that time.  Traditionally, absinthe is prepared by placing a sugar cube on top of a specially designed perforated spoon.  Absinthe is placed in the glass below, and ice-cold water is drizzled slowly over the sugar cube.  The resulting liquid is cloudy in appearance.  A modern method, The "Bohemian Method" is another method of preparing absinthe for consumption.  This method involves setting the sugar cube on fire before drizzling the ice-cold water over the sugar cube. The sugar cube is soaked in absinthe prior to its lighting.  Obviously, our fragrance oil is not to be consumed.  We believe we have captured the taste of absinthe in the smell of our Absinthe fragrance.

Natures Garden's Absinthe fragrance oil is an aromatic blend of just the right combination of star anise, fennel, spicy cinnamon cassia, nutmeg, melissa, fresh green herbal notes, with base notes of amber and woods.

5 out of 5 stars great kind of different! 04/06/2014
Reviewer: shortcake from USA
this scent is very different, but in a great amazing way! it has a spicy exotic smell, one you dont find everyday. i always offer my customers to sniff this one from my candles or air fresheners and they are amazed because not everyone knows what absinthe is and after that sniff, sold!
5 out of 5 stars Love this scent. 03/30/2014
Reviewer: Connie Kessinger from Smiths Grove, KY US
After reading the reviews on this fo I was really skeptical to use it in cp soap. But I blended it with just a little Anise Star eo (reviews did say it was light on the licorice smell), stirred instead of blending, and was able to do an in-the-pot swirl and it behaved beautifully!! Love it.
4 out of 5 stars I love, I mean hate, I mean love, this fragrance 03/11/2014
Reviewer: Bonnie from San Jose, CA US
Smells nothing like real absinthe. There is no cinnamon in absinthe, yet that is the strongest note to my nose. Immediate ricing and acceleration in CP soap, to the point where the soap was barely able to be glopped into the mold, let alone shaped in any kind of appealing way. So, why did I give this four stars? Because, despite the shortcomings, people LOVE how it smells. One of my most popular scents, actually. So, I suggest: 1) Name it something other than "absinthe;" I called my batch "Evil Wood Elf" (partly as a joke because I thought nobody would be interested in the soap) ... and 2) Follow the CP tips in the review written by "Emily McNew from Bon Aqua, TN US" to avoid the ricing/acceleration issue.
5 out of 5 stars Great unisex scent! 03/05/2014
Reviewer: Melissa Linn from Ollie, IA US
I just love this scent!! I made it in cocoa butter m&p & it smells fantastic! Great for men, but would also work for those daring & mysterious women out there! :)
5 out of 5 stars Fantastic scent with no issues for CP soap 02/28/2014
Reviewer: Kristina Godwin from Fuquay Varina, North Carolina US
After reading the many reviews on this scent, I was totally prepared for issues with this scent when I decided to finally use it in a CP soap. This was a special request by my husband, as he picked out this scent when I ordered a variety of 1 ounce bottles (my very first order) so I could get a feel of the variety of scents from Nature's Garden. I even wrote on my bottle to expect acceleration and ricing. I knew it would discolor, so I planned for it. I made the CP soap with beer (Guinness), so I wanted to make it look like a beer. I may have been tempting fate because using beer in place of water was risky on its own (in avoiding acceleration), but adding this FO which already has a known history of ricing and acceleration documented was probably not a great idea if I had wanted an easy go of it. Luckily, I had no issues at all - with either the beer OR the fragrance. I even made a comment to my husband as I was stirring the FO into the soap batter that I should be seeing ricing or acceleration occurring, but neither did. I was really surprised. I did soap just under 100 degrees (~95/97) and I didn't stick blend too much after I added the FO to the soap batter. I will order this FO again as it was a pleasure to work with, and hopefully I will get just as good of a reaction with my next batch as I did with this one. If you are on the fence with this soap, consider soaping a little cooler, and being very easy on the batter (stir more, SB a little less) and you very possibly may not have any issues either.
