Lilac Essence

Lilac Enfleurage Quint-Essential Oil

In July 2017 Charle-Pan cracked the code. For the first time in more than 100 years, Lilac Essential Oil is available from the ancient artisan process of Enfleurage.

In addition to our Lilac Pomade, we are now extracting the oil of lilac from the pomade on site in our own studio. Our 33 day Enfleurage Pomade of Lilac is extracted to yield Lilac Quintessence or what some may call Essential Oil of Lilac. It is estimated that 16 bushels of flowers go into one half ounce of Lilac Essential Oil. The smell is authentic, exquisite and intoxicating. Lilac Enfleurage is a cold process using fresh flowers, so the result is a living lilac essence. For more info on Living Lilac Essence and Why it’s different…

Lilac, Peony, Mock Orange, Sweet English Violet, Gardenia, and Jasmine Pomades available in retail and wholesale quantities. For the first time ever we are extracting Peony oil from peony pomade. Peony Enfleurage Oil and Lilac Enfleurage Oil are both available. Please pre-order, by emailing
