1 ml sample size vial, rare and precious oil for perfumers and lilac lovers...This is a natural raw material used by perfumers and aromatherapists to create their own formulae. It does not contain a blend or fixative, it is 100% Organic Lilac Enfleurage Absolute.

Enfleurage Lilac Absolute is created using the traditional ancient artisan method, then cold extracted from authentic lilac Enfleurage pomade. Raw cold process ensures the precious components of this complex oil are never denatured or degraded. It is pure essence breathed from living flowers absorbed into the highest quality organic, sustainably grown and harvested vegetable fat.

All the lilacs and the entire process from farm to bottle, are grown and extracted here in the rolling hills and fresh lakes, rivers, and waterfalls of Upstate New York. Our process is open for viewing and tours come through daily during the season, to see and experience the working perfumery where our lilac essential oil absolute and lilac pomades are made. The entire process is shown. Nowhere in the world, other than Cherry Valley Lilacs, can one actually see this and experience this in action. I also teach several workshops each year with our Enfleurage Kits.

A Bit About Enfleurage

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 scent and the most comprehensive spectrum of scent molecules. Lilac does not lend itself to distillation and other methods collect only fractions of the scent and leave behind or destroy certain elements. Traditional Enfleurage yields the most authentic essential oil of lilac.

While the lilac essential oil absolute is more longer lasting and has a wider cloud or aura, than the pomade, it is fleeting and may only last a few hours. It will not be able to compete with the strong smells of synthetics, commercial derivatives, and CO2 extractions…So I think I must emphasize in my listing that this is a natural handmade enfleurage product, and will be much different than anything store bought.

My products are used by skin care, aromatherapy and perfume companies all over the world, for their authenticity and therapeutic qualities.

In our Atelier, fresh lilacs are placed in fat substrate where the lovely lilac scent is captured in the fat molecules. We use all organically grown, sustainably harvested, palm kernel oil to extract the scent. Every day for 33 days, we painstakingly replace the hand picked lilac blossoms with fresh blossoms, so the aroma is intoxicatingly authentic. Then we separate the scent molecules from the fat using organic spirits and concentrate it with a gentle evaporation process to preserve the delicate notes of lilac.

This is the authentic essential oil absolute extract of lilac that we create with natural enfleurage, using more than 150 different varieties of lilacs from our lilac farm. Our Lilac Enfleurage is made from lilacs: Maiden's Blush, Sweetheart, Konchkalovsky, Frank's Fancy, Paul Thirion, Burgundy Queen, Royalty, Palibin, Charles Jolie, President Lincoln, Elenor Roosevelt, President Grevy, Miss Kim, Pocahontas, Brent's Beauty, Miss Canada, Peace, Wedgewood Blue, Dappled Dawn, Sensation, Josie, Monge, Alice Mae, Mrs. Havermeyer, Emile Lemoine, Amy Schott, Agincourt Beauty, Mt. Baker, Sara Sands and Donald Wyman, Violeta, Flora, Vesper's Song, Silverking, and Arch McKean. Each year the scent will vary slightly in accordance with which lilacs are the colossal bloomers that year. Nothing is added or taken away from this pure natural product. More than 30 bushels of fresh flowers go into producing 10 ml of Lilac Enfleurage extract.

Our delicate lilac essence may be used as an exquisite stand alone light natural perfume, or as an ingredient in blending with other natural scents. It is a powerful heart opener, teletransporter and memory inducer in the limbic pathways of the brain. Helps heal the soul from past misgivings. Playful and lighthearted, but sultry and intricate with lilac depth and variation in the drydown. May be diluted and fixed with natural fixatives to hamper and slow the evaporation process and making the lilac nose bouquet last even longer.

Lilac essential oil absolute is so rare one may live an entire life and never have encountered it. In one ml of lilac essential oil absolute, approximately 1000 tiny lilac florets have breathed their essence...
