An extremely delicate, sweet fragrance reminiscent of rose, violet & orange flowers. Wonderful for perfumes, soaps & candles

This complex aromatic is initially butter/oily with a sharp, slightly camphoraceous undertone. It has hints of berry also. Michelia is a powerful influencer. This is a wonderful aspect as a little goes a long way making this an economical ingredient.

Michelia's sweetness adds a sensuousness to Neroli and grounds it. Magnolia also might be used to add a deeper, more full bodied effect to Petitgrain. Dilute Cistus and add a drop to the dilution to retain the one pointedness of Cistus with a less medicinal effect.

Michelia will give an impressionistic aroma of fruity lushness. Add a drop of Rose Otto to sweeten and deepen it. Rose Absolute will darken it's mysterious quality and assist in smoothing out the camphoraceous aspects of this material.

Bear in mind, however, that the quirky nature of this material is not going to disappear. Make friends with Michelia and consider it a fantasy item that, used correctly, will create one of a kind effects.

A simple blend to get started with Michelia:

Base ~
5 drops - Cedar
1 drop - Vetivert
a high quality Cypress (Cretan Cypress is my favorite)

Middle ~
1 drop - Ylang Complete
1 drop - Geranium
2 drops - Black Pepper
1 drop - Rose Absolute or Otto (whichever you feel drawn to)

Top ~
4 drops - Blood Orange Tarocco
3 drops - Neroli Tunisia
3 drops - Bitter Orange

These are guidelines only. Feel free to amend this recipe or improve it in any way.

Now, DROP BY DROP add your Michelia. (you can either dilute it down or not). Wait in between to see how you like the blend. I recommend leaving the blend alone after three drops.

The cedars and cypress will balance out the sharper notes of the Michelia while the florals should boost up its luscious fruity qualities.

If you like the basic mixture, experiment with Violet Leaf Absolute or Black Current Bud (careful, the Black Current is also sharp).

Jasmine Sambac in dilution can correct the tone if you find you have been overzealous with your sharper notes.
