Artemisia ORGANIC (South Africa)
Yet another material from South Africa that gives so much aromatically. The aroma is boozy sweet, herbaceous, a tad woody, currant and berry fruity, very juicy, and reminiscent in part to the smell that saturates the air when opening a bag of wine gums. The heart and base notes are blackcurrant, herbaceous and green themed with suede leather and medicinal nuances.
The colour is clear white yellowish, produced by steam distilling the flowers and twigs and of a pourable viscosity. For the perfumer this material is most useful for building boozy accords, lavender colognes and fresh forest bases.
