Balsam Peru Oil is a mobile, amber liquid distilled from the thicker darker Balsam Peru. This refinement both lightens the color of this ingredient and concentrates its aroma. In oil form the aroma and flavor more closely resemble a vanilla absolute, being altogether sweeter than the balsam while still retaining a hint of its smoky warmth. In fragrances this translates into a gourmand-sweetness and in flavors Balsam Peru Oil is commonly found in chocolate, strawberry, caramel, and especially vanilla profiles.
