The oil has a warm, sweet, dry-herbaceous musky scent. The absolute has a sweet herbaceous balsamic odor.
According to Susanne Fischer-Rizzi :
Labdanum conveys a warmth that deeply affects the soul.
It is favored for people who feel cold, empty or numb after a traumatic event.
Used extensively in perfume.
Partly as an excellent fixative, partly to introduce a rich, suave sweetness
and natural undertone, which blends well with citrus-colognes, lavender-colognes
all kinds of oriental bases, pine and forest blends.
Blends well with:
oakmoss, clary sage, bergamot, lavender, pinus pumilio, lavandin and citrus oils.
External use ONLY.
Do not use undiluted on the skin.
Store away from heat & light.
Keep away from children & pets.
