Description

Liquidambar (Styrax), also known as Sweet Gum, is very rich, sweet-balsamic, faintly floral and somewhat spicy, with resinous, animalic, amber-like undertones.

While Liquidambar may not appeal to everyone, this unusual material can be used to enhance a formula when used in small amounts and is best used as a component of a composition, rather than on its own.

Aromatic Profile: Very rich, sweet-balsamic, faintly floral, somewhat spicy aroma, with a peculiar styrene topnote and resinous, animalic, amber-like undertones; has excellent fixative qualities.

Appearance: Medium to light brown, transparent, viscous (thick honey-like) liquid.

Use: Aromatherapy, Natural Perfumery, Incense.
