The sweet, rich and balsamic like aroma of vanilla absolute have made it one of the preferred aromas of the cosmetic industry since its advent. Vanilla absolute is trraditionally used as a flavouring ingredient in foods and tabacco as well as perfumery. Vanilla generates a sense of well-being and a feeling of relaxation. Its aroma is euphoric and comforting.
Every vanilla flower is pollinated by hand and each blossom produces a single bean that is normally harvested after 8 or 9 months. Vanilla beans (from the pods) are then dried. Vanilla absolute is obtained from the pods by a complex process and its a highly valued ingredient in perfumery.
The vanilla beans originate from Madagascar. Vanilla absolute is obtained by solvent (glycerine) extraction of the fresh dried pod of Vanilla planifolia.
