Balsam Peru is a sap-like extract produced from the resin of Myroxylon balsamum trees, which grow wildly throughout certain specialized regions of Central and South America. The material possesses an incredibly rich and balsamic aroma, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and clove. This deep sweetness is further complemented by the distinct smoky undertones of this extract, adding further versatility to its applications within perfumery. Balsam Peru can be incorporated into almost any fragrance base, though it adds a natural depth to floral or spicy materials that can be especially appealing when paired with rose, cabreuva, or sandalwood.
