From the same producer as our Gardenia Enfleurage, nested in the Andean foothills, this family of artisans uses palm fat as a medium of extraction through traditional enfleurage. The result is the most true to the flower, heavenly scent. This is quite different from out Attar of Tuberose, where the Attar captures more of the green nutty notes of the tuberose and is in base of sandalwood, this enfleurage captures the Heart and is free of any base. This is a true gem for any tuberose lover.
About Enfleurage: The Art of Enfleurage was developed in southern France in the 18th century. Using animal fat as a mean of extraction, seasonally harvested flowers are carefully laid on trays of the hard fat and allowed to sit for 24hrs, after which they are removed and replaced with fresh ones, the process is repeated for about 30 days or until the fat becomes saturated with the scent of the flowers, at which point the fat is melted in pure alcohol which will extract the oils out of the fat and then it is carefully filtered to remove the fat and allowed to evaporate to remove the alcohol from the precious flower oil. This process is extremely meticulous and labor intensive and is not a process that is practice anymore on a commercial level simply due to the fact that it is not commercially viable.
