Benzoin Absolute

$13.80

Styrax plants produce benzoin, which is a resinoid gum. This means it has a thick and sticky consistency and has a delightfully warm, sweet, woody, vanilla-like aroma. When the fruit from the styrax tree is mature and the leaves are about to fall, the bark is cut, leaving little pockets where the secreted gum tears can be collected. Due to its sweet and warm aroma, benzoin essence is frequently used as a base note in numerous perfumes.
