  • The osmanthus tree (bush) from the temperate zone of Asia and is quite rare. Its white blossoms give off a suave floral perfume accentuated by scents of peach and apricot. It is cultivated in China and Japan.

  • As with jasmine, the flowers are too fragile for vapor distillation. The extraction is achieved by the use of volatile solvents.

  • Osmanthus is reserved for fine fragrances. It brings an exotic floral savor with a tint of apricot to feminine fragrances. It is also very sought after in gastronomy for its fruity-floral notes. Used as a middle note in perfumes.

  • Its smooth notes bring a comforting sensation.
