Osmanthus Absolute(Osmanthus fragrans) has a floral scent sought by perfumers for its unusual elegant aroma. It is also one of the most expensive heart notes in perfumery, having a unique sweet fragrance.
The plant is called Tea Olive or Sweet Olive. The aroma is one you will always remember as a new experience. The absolute allows the fragrance to be enjoyed.
Originating in China, Osmanthus symbolizes true love and faithfulness. I am so glad it grows in Texas! September marks the Chinese Moon festival, or Osmanthus festival. A time to enjoy and honor such a prized flower! Osmanthus absolute blends well with Jasmine grandiflora, Rose absolute, and Neroli. After you experience the heavenly aroma, you may choose to wear Osmanthus neat!
