Boronia Absolute [Family: Rutaceae], native to South Western Australia, has a utterly luxurious, rich fruity-floral, heavenly aroma, with the character of ripening hay. Pourable and dark orange in colour, this absolute has a warmly yellow floral aroma, infused with sensational fruity juiciness, reminiscent of apricots and sweet ripe summer fruit with just a gentle tartness that makes it even more delectable. This is possibly the only absolute containing natural ionones, mostly beta-ionone but also smaller amounts of alpha-ionone. Despite its fairly high ionone content, the violet feature in its aroma is far from being dominant in its aroma profile. It has an amazingly beautiful and exquisite aroma, this is one of the most sought-after fragrances in the world that will leave you drooling even after a while you have been smelling it on a smelling strip.
Orange yellow to brown slightly viscous liquid
Warm, yellow-floral, herbaceous green odour
Boronia Absolute is primarily used in the perfume and aromatherapy industries for its unique and unparalleled scent. The plant is named after Francesco Borone, a young 18th century Italian botanist who met an untimely death while studying under Sir James Smith. Smith named the sweet-smelling Australian shrub after his deceased protege in a way to honor his memory. The tantalizing fragrance of Boronia Absolute is said to uplift the senses, ease worries, and inspire a renewed interest in love and life. For this reason, it is often used as an aphrodisiac, referring to the natural dance that culminates in the union of the pollinator and flower.
