An oil which has hardly yet reached the shelves in European and American perfume laboratories, has been known and used for quite some time in the Far East: the essential oil of Hornalomena Rubescens which is steam distilled from the comminuted roots of this type "C" plant. The plant is related to calamus. It grows wild and commonly in India, Indonesia, the Malaccan peninsula and Borneo. It is experimentally cultivated in India for the production of larger quantities of essential oil. Oil of Homalomena Rubescens is a pale yellow or amber liquid of a sweet woody, somewhat floral, but also harsh pine like odor. The odor is reminiscent of that of low grade Ho Wood Oils or of certain fractions of bois de rose oil. It serves in its homeland as a soap perfume ingredient, as a source of Linalool and for the production of linalyl esters.
