A fascinatingly complex oil
This myrtle can't be fully appreciated by merely sniffing the bottle: the dry down was quite full of surprises! The initial top notes are sweet and quite camphoraceous, with a component somewhat reminiscent of Allspice and Bay, but the oil changes and takes on a luxurious, soft quality, honeyed, while still having spicy herbal-medicinal notes. In its final stage it seems to take on a powdery floral quality. Although the oil is in no way similar in aroma to Jasmine, it seems to evoke a similar sensual euphoria, and it is no surprise that Myrtle is sacred to the goddess Aphrodite! It seems that one could experiment in combining with this oil with others such as clove, beeswax absolute, and possibly even helichrysum. Overall, this is a strange scent that might not be for everyone, but it is definitely an interesting and sultry one that is worth experimenting with!
