Description of Cistus Absolute

A fragrant extract steam-distilled from the crude gum of Cistus salviifolius flowers, Cistus Absolute is produced throughout much of Southwestern Europe. The aroma of this extract is warm and sweet, with a tenaciously dry odor that easily compliments aldehydic or amber type perfumes. This makes cistus absolute a popular addition to "fantasy" style bouquets, lending a spicy and animal-like nuance to citrus or herbal blends. Cistus absolute is also a frequent contributor to artificial musk fragrances, as the extract's powerful fixative properties remain effective even when used in trace amounts.
