From the tiny, rice-sized flowers of the Aglaia shrub (a member of the Mahogany botanical family) comes a scent-experience that is larger than life. The oil from this flowering plant, also known as Chinese Perfume Plant, is unparalleled for crafting rich, heady amber-floral bouquets, incenses, and bountiful base-notes. Herbaceous and fruity-floral with fresh hints of green, this perfumer’s dream is uplifting and enchanting.

  

Aglaia grows wild across Southeast Asia. Its fruity, floral scent profile is made rich by subtle notes of green tea, ambery-leather, and wood. Sweet yet complex, Aglaia absolute is a favorite fragrance of perfumers looking to create exciting East Asian bouquets, peach and pear-inspired incenses, and robust amber bases with notes of fresh forest green.

Emotionally and spiritually, Aglaia Flower Absolute’s gift is to uplift. In aromatherapy, it is used to boost moods as it is said to harmonize and invoke a state of blissed-out grace. The oil of this tiny flower invokes inner power: if a single rice- sized bloom can emit such an unforgettable perfume, imagine the limitless power that resides within you, just waiting to create something equally breathtaking!

“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily

Do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm.

If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”  ~ Thérèse de Lisieux
