Black Tea Absolute
Black tea absolute is extracted from the cured, dried leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis).
The absolute is a viscous, dark or amber-coloured liquid with a faint, rich, delicately dry, somewhat herbaceous, sweet and woody odour.
It is traditionally used in perfumery as a fixative and to produce sweet-herbaceous notes. In general perfumery, it is used to produce "sweet herbaceous notes in certain floral perfumes. e.g. jasmine, orange blossom, gardenia, freesia, etc, and to produce new effects in woody aldehydic perfumes of the non-floral type. As an intensifier of clary sage, melaleuca bracteata, michelia leaf oil, or other tea like fragrances, it is unsurpassed in naturalness." (Steffen Arctander)
It blends well with bergamot, sandalwood, jasmine, and tobacco.
Characteristics: woody, sweet, tea
Subsidiary notes and nuances: leather, arnica, hay, smoky
