Genuine high-end perfumery gem, an absolute is the most precious essence vegetable raw material. Absolutes are highly concentrated, fragrant natural vegetable extracts, produced through the extractive action of an organic solvent on a plant.
Introduced in Europe during the 17th century, Geraniums were initially used for medicinal purposes. They were soon used as an iconic perfumery ingredient thanks to the aromatic properties of their leaves and stems. The rose like aroma of Geranium is particularly delicate, both sweet and strong, yet distinctive thanks to its light green and citrus notes. Panier des Sens has selected the Pelargonium Graveolens, also known as Rose Geranium to embody the first fragrance of this iconic collection.
