Thread: 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!
