Note Classification

Base

Aroma

Slightly sweet top notes that are almost vanilla-like with underlying woody base notes that are balsamic, rich, and warming.

Overview

Amyris imparts a lovely woody scent that is subtle. It is used as a fixative or base note in blends, and is sometimes incorporated into sandalwood-like aromas. It is a thicker oil that is tacky to the touch, and may take a little more agitation to mix with other oils.

Amyris can be found in sandalwood-like blends. These two wood-based oils have very different top note aromas, but do have similar woody dry out notes. They can be used in the same ways when fragrance blending, but are not suitable substitutes for use in aromatherapy.

Packaging

1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Blends Well With
