    Typically you would use Black Currant Bud Absolute only in very small amounts in a formulation. You can get 1/8 ounce from Eden Botanical for $30. It is about 1/2 that price from Liberty Natural but they have a $50 minimum order.

    You can try the black currant from Perfumer's Apprentice - three dollars a pop (2.5mL and it smells pretty darn good) under the name Cassis - a Givaudan product. Good luck in your burgeoning DIY perfuming!
