The honey facet is an element present in the scent of many flowers and absolutes where it is an important factor for the "living" quality of the fragrance. But there are some plants where this note is unmistakable present as the main odor. These small purple flowers with a strong scent, but not very diffusive in the air, have the precise note of the most delicious honey. It is not a facet, a suggestion or our interpretation of the note. In this case, Nature was extremely specific. Your nose will find with surprise the most accurate representation of a jar with golden honey starting to crystallize, and even more, the sensation you experience with a big spoon of honey in your mouth. Besides this sweet note with a faint balsamic and caramel aspect recalling a dilution of fir balsam, you can experience a very aromatic aspect, sweet almost aniseed recalling the non camphourus aspect of rosemary and of course the light chamomile note combined with the herbal sweet aspect of lavender absolute. There is even an obvious oat meal + cocoa suggestion. The closest raw material is the forgotten composition called Miel Blanc (de Laire) and its structure can be easily modified to represent with accuracy the scent of this flower.
The interpretation of this scent is of the outmost importance because it represents a crucial element in many other flowers and one of the most cherished scents in personal care perfumes.
