In the description for this frag it partly states:

 

"Containing not one single essential oil nor synthetic, Norne is luxuriously composed entirely with 100% pure forest absolutes."

 

Isn't an absolute just another extraction process similar to distillation?  I'm wondering why the use of an essential oil in a fragrance like this would be viewed as a negative.  Are absolutes much more expensive to obtain and of a higher quality vs. essential oils?
