The quintessential smell of amber…rich, balsamic, resinous, and reminiscent of Ambergris.
Travel through aroma back in time to the rustic patches of Rock Rose bushes, so sticky with sweet resin that grazing goats would become perfumed as they brushed by. The rich, sweet fragrance was so alluring that regal men of the day would affix the resin clad beards of goats under their chins to treat their senses as well as those closest to them. The first goatees were a tribute to this otherworldly scent. Today the fragrant gum of the Rock Rose is captured through boiling its resin in water, and the absolute is then obtained through solvent extraction, yielding a color and consistency that looks and smells like rich, dark, honey with a characteristic amber aroma.
