Product Details
Materials: RSPO palm kernel oil,mock orange flowers

Mock Orange blossoms placed in Enfleurage exhale a beautiful aroma of sweet citrus and creamy vanilla…reminiscent of Neroli, an extract of orange blossom used in perfumery.

This Mock Orange Pomade is from our own perfume gardens in Upstate New York…at Cherry Valley Lilacs. It is a delightful, northern, temperate-zone version of fragrant orange blossoms.

The scent is astonishing, ethereal, and authentic, albeit ephemeral, fleeting and ghostly.

PLEASE NOTE:, real enfleurage is going to be much lighter and softer and more intimate and private than a synthetic fragrance.

Enfleurage is the French term for an ancient, labor intensive, and all-but vanished, technique in which a fat is used to absorb scent from fresh exhaling flowers.

Enfleurage captures the most delicate components of aroma and the most comprehensive spectrum of scent.

At Cherry Valley Lilacs we have revitalized this ancient method of scent extraction and brought it back from near extinction. In past seasons hundreds of visitors have come to the farm to witness this ancient practice in action.

Only organic and sustainably produced oils are used in the pomade. Coconut, palm and cocoa butter are perfect fats for this process.

Certified sustainable producers of Organic Palm Oil have joined a coalition to protect rainforest habitat and produce their oil from long standing organic and sustainably managed plantations. Palm kernel oil is high in vitamin A palmitate, vitamin E, and other phyto -nutrients and antioxidants.

We also sell wholesale by the pound. Please inquire.

Enfleurage of Mock Orange Pomade is made on site at Cherry Valley Lilac Farm in upstate New York at the foothills of the Adirondacks. Spring is a fantastic crazy dance in these parts, where the growing season is so fleeting and intense.

Enfleurage Pomade is a lightly scented moisturizer, emollient, and therapeutic aromatic balm.

Pomade, a term of the past, was often used as a hair preparation, and so it became known for that primary use. My enfleurage pomade is often used in hair, scalp, and as a beard and mustache tamer. However, lightly fragrant, it has been described as a solid natural perfume, and it is meant to be worn as a moisturizer, body butter, massage cream or facial butter. Live mock orange essence from fresh exhaling flowers, absorbed into a base of organic and sustainably grown RSPO palm kernel oil, is a non greasy emollient full of antioxidants, phytonutrients, naturally occurring vitamin A and Vitamin E tocopherols.

As long as it is protected from moisture and heat, it has a shelf life of several years and still holds it’s soft beautiful fragrance without going rancid or esterification. You can savor it for many long, cold, and dreary winters. In fact solid scented pomades have been found in thousand year old Egyptian pots and still retain their fragrance. It is soul magic in a jar. 🌸
