syringa vulgaris absolute
Next to rose and jasmin, the Lilac fragrance is probably the perfume which is most frequently created by the perfumer from synthetic and natural raw materials. Up to now, the essential oil producing houses have been unable to offer a true, natural oil, derived from lilac flowers and representing these flowers satisfactorily in odor effect. Only a few houses in Grasse, France offer materials which are said to be derived exclusively from lilac flowers.
An absolute has been prepared from the flowers of lilac by hydrocarbon solvent extraction and subsequent alcohol extraction of the produced concrete.

Use: There is no lilac essential oil – the yield is non-existent.
There is no lilac absolute – many attempts have failed.
Throughout history the desire for the beautifully floral scent of lilacs has spawned many different blends, fragrance oils and butters and although these have become gradually more sophisticated and complex as new materials are discovered, they are all still just imitations of the naturally sweet floral delight of the natural lilac. Even the so called lilac pomades of the past were actually perfumed with a mix of benzoin, styrax and hyacinth pomade.
So it really is a great privilege to offer small amounts of this completely natural, completely real extract of lilac flowers. The yield of the CO2 extraction is small and the precious result is golden and waxy with a scent that is gentle, sweet, floral, balsamic and green with an earthy, slightly cresol-like undertone. After a while on the smelling strip, the scent turns quite spicy and cinnamon-like.
Although the fragrance of lilacs themselves may seem out-dated in these sophisticated times, it still remains an important and very useful floral component in modern perfumery.
