Guaicawood(Bulnesia sarmientoi) essential oil/Paraquay

Guiacawood essential oil is a solid waxy mass at room temperature which is beige in color and displays a sweet, creamy woody-balsamic aroma with vanillic-amber undertone of good tenacity

In natural perfumery, guiacawood oil serves as an excellent low cost fixative, blender and modifier due to its gentle aromatic profile which blends well with most essences. Its soft rounded character is valued for its ability to smooth off course edges in a composition and allow gentle transitions from one phase of the aromatic life of an essence to the next. It is often blended with either copaiba balsam or gurjun balsam in a 50-50 ratio so that it remains in a liquid state.

Used in sacred perfumes, incense bouquets, new mown hay, Oriental perfumes, precious woods accords, earth notes, high class florals, amber essences, fougere
