Wild Veil Vermont Fir Balsam Absolute ☆ Organic, handmade, and sustainably collected from wild stands of Abies balsamea in the old growth hemiboreal forest at my home in Vermont.
☆ Wild Vermont Fir Balsam Absolute ☆
Nutty, stirring, sweet green resinous, and balsamic are some of the notes in this deep, aged extract of Abies balsamea boughs and needles collected in spring from the old growth Vermont forest at my home. I left the branches in tincture for a year to develop a complex, Christmas tree liquor aroma. This is a scent for winter, dark months, and inspiration. Like my other handmade conifer absolutes, its profile is rich and distinctly nostalgic. Organic.
The Wild Vermont Fir Balsam Absolute is a Wild Veil natural perfume ingredient made using the old methods of long term tincturing in plantbased, high proof alcohol (food grade ethanol), followed by gentle evaporation to preserve the top notes.
Available in 1ml, 2ml, and 5ml sizes. Absolute is dark green, almost black in color, with warm brown undertones. It is syrupy at room temperature. Refrigerate to preserve freshness. Gently warm to improve mobility.
Note: tenacious middle to base note with wonderful fixative properties.
Photos: absolute in a 10ml glass jar, and tincture evaporating into absolute; absolute in 5ml amber glass bottle. All labels are drawn with pen and ink and lightfast oil-core colored pencils and digitally edited, by the perfumer.
