Seaweed absolute is often a deep green or greenish brown liquid of intensely green herbaceous, phenolic-woody and 'dry' odor type. Distinctly recalling the odor of seaweed drying on a salt water beach after a heavy storm or surf. The appearance and odor of these products are strongly affected by the nature of the starting material.
Seaweed Absolute is an extremely powerful perfume material. Its penetrative effect is partly due to its unusual type of odor. To me, the first impression was of a day on the ocean or shrimp. It finds use in mossy-woody, herbaceous or 'green' perfume types, or in fantasy bases.
Blends excellently with oakmoss products, patchouli oil, spice oils, cedarwood oil, lavender, musks, labdanum products, pine needle, galbanum,.
Thoughts from Gail Adrian:
This particular Seaweed Absolute is spectacular. It is the most complex material I have had the privilege to inhale in years. It is quite complex. It is gentle, with myriad notes of the ocean, creatures found deep in marine waters, salt, and aquatic plant life.
Seaweed Absolute is not for the faint of heart. It needs to be studied and respected. If you use it in proper dilution however, you will be rewarded with perfumes that sing of mermaids, tropical adventures, and matriarchal blessings. It is necessary to dilute this material way down, which actually will make it much more economical. It is a lovely ingredient to add to earthy bases such as Myrrh, Vetiver, the green notes of Galbanum, Cumin, and basil.
With Ginger on the top and perhaps a single diluted drop of Davana, you have opportunity to create a complicated lunar blend.
