fascinating..slightly medicinal smell with a dry woody undertone which together feels like a spice note spiraling out giving it an atmospheric quality like fresh air in a forest full of life

One of my newest favorites!!! I love it mixed with lavender. Diffuse it into a room and it is extremely pleasant and relaxing. Hope it will always be available. Thank you!

The oil from Hedychium spicatum root is light, with a golden color. It is slightly gingery and resembles other root fragrances such as cypriol and vetiver. There's also a camphor-eucalyptus note and at higher concentrations a urinaceous tone. Hedychium is exotic, stimulant, and intoxicating. It can help anchor the foundation of any Oriental fragrance blend.

This was a little strong for my taste. I think it could be a nice balance for other strong, sweet scents, but it was a little overwhelming to me.

The smell was surprising to me when I read it was used in perfumery. It's more camphorous than I expected, and the overall scent is strange. I could imagine it as a nice base note in scent blends.

Very pleased I decided to order this oil. One of my new favorites! Out of the thirty some oils I ordered this time around this is number 3 out of my top five picks! At first spicy and woodsy but then the undertone of a camphorous aroma comes through. Very different.
