Thread: Blue Lotus

  1. #1

    Default Blue Lotus

    Blue Lotus (Water Lily) (Nymphaea caerulea) hexane extracted Absolute – India:
    Piquant, spicy, powdery, rich fizzy floral reminiscent of strong cola and talc, sassafras and fresh ginger.

    Blue Lotus Absolute-Phytonic extract – Thailand: spicy, watery, zesty powder, less floral than the hexane extracted absolute and a bit milder with a sparkling berry note.

    Absolute steam distilled from Thailand -- maybe the same Nymphaea sampled.

    I hear this woman is no longer in business, but she also distilled boronia, and I got very similar effects, the fizzy berry / fruity note, a bit sugary like those conversation hearts and also strongly reminiscent of hyacinth and galbanum, powdery green... Just gorgeous!

    Thanks for the link. Enfleurage lists that as Hawaiian grown. I take it Egyptian Blue Lotus is a rare bird indeed.

    From the comments above, I think this must be the variety in the new LM Radikal Lotus.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
