Absinthe Fragrance Oil


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.   

*This fragrance was formulated to include natural essential oils

Top Notes:  Star Anise, fennel, green herbal notes

Reviewer: from Arkansas

Love the smell but the act of this fragrance oil is terrible. I haven't had a fragrance oil with only 3% van rice this bad. The pricing was not able the be blended out. I'm actually terrified of what the color will come out to be.....

Reviewer: from Safford, Az

I made a perfume out of this and it’s my favorite! One of my favorite perfumes is tokyomilk Dark “Bulletproof” and this dries down to smell very close to that. But I like this better because it starts off spicy and lasts longer! I can’t wait to try this in more creations. I can see this being a Unisex scent, even my husband loved it.

Reviewer: from Boerne TX

Wow. This FO is fabulous, I wanted a nice earthy/spicy masculine leaning fragrance for my Halloween soap line, and the Absinthe fragrance oil hits all of those points. Smells great OOB and even better after saponification. Rices a teeny bit, but stick blends out with one or two quick shots. Otherwise no problems, and AMAZING scent retention.

Reviewer: from Chandler, AZ USA

I am writing to update a review I left in September of 2012. I was fairly new to CP soaping when I first tried this FO and I did have issues with major acceleration. I made 5 lbs of soap with this scent back in 2012. It was not the prettiest soap but it was very interesting looking and I sold all but one end bar which I kept for myself. After 7 years I can still smell this fragrance in my soap! I recall it was very popular and many of my aesthetic clients still ask about it so I'm back to give it another go. This time I'll go lighter on the stick blending and soap at room temp. It's definitely worth the extra effort.

Reviewer: from Illinois

Just recently purchased this FO and have been wanting to try it for such a long time. Was very apprehensive after reading a lot of reviews that said it riced pretty badly and accelerated and/or seized in CP. Made a batch tonight and used 4 colors plus my base, which was black. I only put the FO in the black and my darkest green color, which was not really dark but a bright neon green and I only put a tiny bit in that. I didn't experience even the slightest amount of ricing and my batch stayed fluid and workable for the entire design. I layered the colors in the bottom starting with the darkest green, then a lighter shade of neon green, an aqua-ish color and white. I had to use a spatula and spoon each layer in since my batter was still pretty fluid (thin trace)and I didn't want to break through each layer too much. I was prepared. My hanger tool was already in the mold sitting on the bottom with the arms (or handles??) sticking up out of the mold. Time to mix the black and add the FO. I mixed in the activated charcoal really well first with my whisk, then started adding the FO a little at a time while whisking like crazy, expecting it to rice any second and then seize up. Huh, I got all the FO whisked in and still no ricing and no acceleration. Batter was at medium trace, like pudding but a little thinner. Could have poured it in the mold but I spooned it in at first so it wouldn't break through the colors. Put most of it in, did my hanger design (it might be weird, I don't know. I'm a spaz with the hanger tool) and then finished putting the rest of the black in. Topped with a row of each color in the same order I layered them and did a slow, careful figure 8 design on top. It looks amazing!! It is still in the mold and I CANNOT WAIT to unmold it tomorrow. I hope my swirl design is at least a little like what I was envisioning in my mind. I am honestly just thrilled that I did not have any issues with this FO. It smells fantastic and I will continue buying it and soaping it in the future. I soaped at about 90 degrees F and when I first added my lye water to my oils I literally only stick blended for about 10 seconds. Split off for my colors. Put the base aside. Added the 4 colors, mixed each with a spatula very well then pulsed with the stick blender. Did not use the stick blender in the main black base portion. Used a whisk for that entire part of the process. Maybe adding the FO a little bit at a time and whisking really fast helped avoid ricing. Not sure, but I know I'll do it the same way next time I soap it.

Reviewer: from northern california

This scent is unique! My hubby loves it but it can be a female scent as well. Works great in M&P, lotions and soy candles and tarts. Not too much licorice/anise, and some warm spicy notes. Try it!

Reviewer: from Florida

I adore this fragrance!!! It's so unique and has a fresh spiciness to me.
To my nose there is no true Absinthe scent per se, and I do pick up a tiny bit of cinnamon, but other notes seem to disguise the blend so well and complex.

It's been a main scent in my line for a few yrs now. Both men and women like it.

I only HP my soap with this one.

Reviewer: from Clearwater, FL

This fragrance oil not only "slightly rices" it seizes soap almost immediately. I soap in the low 90's and I've been making the same cold process soap for nearly 9 years and I know what "slight ricing" is - this was a joke. Highly disappointed and will not take the fragrance testing notes into consideration in the future, they obviously are not always accurate.
