    Default Armoise - Mugwort .. ( Artimisia Alba )

    Hi all
    Looking up the notes that makeup of PS by Paul Sebastian , I noticed Armoise wasn't in this forum here , so here is a brief intro to it .

    ************************************


    Botanical Name:
    Artimisia alba
    Origin: India
    Description: This aromatic perennial herb has red-purple stems and deeply cut, dark green leaves with white undersides. Panicles of tiny red-brown flowers appear in summer. It is a tall-growing plant, the stems, which are angular and often of a purplish hue, frequently rising 3 feet or more in height.
    Color: Pale yellow
    Note: Middle
    Strength of Aroma: Strong
    Blends well with: Patchouli, lavender, oak moss, rosemary, pine, sage, clary sage and cedarwood.
    Aromatic Scent: Powerful, fresh-camphoraceous, somewhat green & bittersweet.
    History: Also known as felon herb and St. Johns' plant. In Europe the herb has been used in association with superstition and witchcraft and was seen as a protective charm against evil and danger. In Chinese medicine the dried, compressed leaves (moxa) are used to briefly warm the skin in case of internal cold.

    Does anyone else have any other fragrances featuring this note ?
    cheers
