Botanical Name: Nelumbo nucifera
Plant Part: Flowers
Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction
Description: In the East, the Lotus flower is viewed as a symbol of awakening and while it grows in muddy ponds and stagnant water, it blossoms every day with the dawn. A plant noted for its longevity, its seeds may be viable for as long as 1500 years.
Color: Golden yellow to brownish orange liquid.
Common Uses: Lotus White Absolute is prized for the exquisite sweetness of its fragrance, but is slightly more herbaceous than the Pink.
Strength of Aroma: Strong
Blends well with: Lotus White Absolute blends well with generally all oils, though it seems to work best with other floral oils.
Aromatic Scent: Lotus White Absolute has an exotic floral aroma with slightly herbaceous and medicinal top notes. It is very similar to Lotus Pink.
History: This beautiful aquatic lily was sacred to the Indian goddess Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and learning. The concept of retaining purity while thriving in the midst of uncleanliness has affiliated its use with health and beauty for millennia. It continues to be widely used in beauty products as well as ethnic cuisines, and this versatile flower even produces a cloth used in Buddhist shrines.
Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance - particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost.
