Description of Basil Oil Linalool Type

Unlike its Methyl Chavicol counterparts, Basil Oil Linalool Type is fresher and sweeter, derived from a unique variety of Ocimum basilicum herbs that were originally produced in Egypt. The aroma and flavor of this oil matches the common basil profile expected of the Mediterranean herb, though its careful balance of sweetness and spiciness works exceptionally well within tomato sauces and other cooking applications. As such, basil oil linalool type is used extensively in savory flavor blends. Outside of cooking, this basil also finds use in men’s perfumery, imparting a spicy and fresh top note to masculine fragrances.
