Osmanthus Absolute

Osmanthus Absolute (Osmanthus fragrans) from France is a high quality, solvent-extracted Absolute widely used in perfumery.


Like all of our Artisan Aromatics essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.

Golden and delicate osmanthus flowers emit off a surprisingly powerful scent. They open to release their rich, elegant fragrance that is often described as sensual, fruity and floral.

Osmanthus is native to China and in the 17th century, osmanthus spread to other regions including Japan, Europe, and North America.

Absolutes are highly concentrated, aromatic oils derived via solvent extraction of plant material – often from  flowers that are too delicate for steam distillation, like Jasmine, Mimosa and White and Pink Lotus. The extraction process involves lower temperatures than distillation, so the aromatic compounds in Absolutes can smell exceptionally fresh.

There are two traditional methods of extracting the oil from the plant material:

In addition to this absolute, we offer quite a few other high quality Absolutes suitable for natural perfumery as well as aromatherapy (via diffusion) like rose, vanilla, oak moss and more.
