Description: Cognac Green is a specialty oil that is highly recommended for natural perfumers. Cognac Green Essential Oil is produced from the wine precipitate known as ‘lees’ – the yeasty residue left at the bottom of the oak barrels after fermentation and aging of Cognac. Cognac Green Essential Oil is used in trace amounts to give ‘lift’ and fresh-fruity natural notes in colognes and after-shave fragrances. It is also used in perfumery due to its rich and tenacious yeasty green base notes which when diluted contain the seductive essences of a fine aged champagne Cognac.

Colour: Green to Yellowish-Green
Blends well with: Bergamot, Clary Sage, Coriander, Frangipani Absolute, Galbanum, Jasmine Sambac, Lavender, Lotus Pink Absolute, Neroli, Rose Maroc Absolute, Rose Otto, Ylang Ylang
Aromatic Scent: Cognac Green Essential Oil is an intriguing middle to base note perfumery component; its aroma is powerful, dry, tart, and wine-like, with intense diffusiveness and notes of green apple. When appropriately diluted, it brightens and provides lift, adds a fresh, fruity aspect, and imparts tenacity to perfume compositions.
Please note that the aroma of Cognac Green Essential Oil is one that is difficult to ascertain directly from a bottle or vial. To more accurately assess and be able to truly experience the myriad nuances of this oil, please use a Fragrance Tester Strip – this exposes the oil to air for the ‘drydown’ – the process of allowing the oil to evaporate, making possible the appraisal of the aroma as it evolves during evaporation, and until the scent no longer remains.
