Originally from Central America, it is the large leaves that are cured for fragrances. They are mostly made in France but limited in their use due to nicotine.
Volatile solvents are used to extract the “absolutes” of a variety of tobaccos. They are often artificially bleached. This annual furry and sticky plant has a straight stem that produces blooms (inflorescences) with pointy and oval leaves that measure about 50cm long.
The “absolute” or colorless resin are only used to a very small extent, except in trace amounts in certain chypre, fern or oriental perfumes.
Tobacco leaves contain a toxic alkaloid: nicotine.
