Hyacinth (Hyacynthus Orientalis)

Green, floral, plant, strong.

Source

Hyacinths come from Asia Minor and the Balkans.

Extraction Method

Hyacinth absolute is obtained through extraction with volatile solvents. Since the manufacture of this absolute is virtually non-existent, perfumers reconstitute it artificially.

Use

Used mainly in floral notes as a fixative.

History

In Greek mythology, Apollo and Hyacinthus were friends. One day they were playing at discus-throwing, when Zephyr, the god of the winds, in a fit of jealousy, made the west wind wind blow the discus and hit Hyacinthus on the head, killing him instantly. The grief-stricken Apollo grew hyacinths from his dead friend's blood so as to remember him forever. Medicinal properties A vital scent that induces a feeling of eternal youth.
