Redolent Raspberry Leaf Absolute is a distillation of summer wine, capturing a sweet moment in time.
Raspberry may be better known for its sweet red berries, yet the aromatic oils in the pinnate leaves evoke sun-kissed tart fruit and balsamic wine. Raspberry Leaf Absolute is a deep, charming aromatic that as a base note effortlessly weaves together aromas of fruity conifers, resin, and musky tea scents.

An absolute is created by using a solvent to pull the precious plant aromatics from the plant matter. The solvent is then allowed to evaporate leaving behind a beautifully aromatic and highly concentrated absolute. The fragrant molecules are generally enjoyed through inhalation to transport emotions, mind, memories, creativity, concentration, imagination, and meditation across secular thresholds into the sea of cosmic waveforms. The scent story of absolutes unfolds in colognes and perfumes, inhalation mediations, and ambient diffusion infusions rather than as the focus of skin care.
