    Default Cannabis in perfumery

    Is cannabis tincure/EO used in perfumery? Does anyone know if it's available on the market/legal?

    Thanks

    There are some smelling notes in the Single Note thread.

    In addition we had a discussion about it a while back in another thread, but for convenience I’ll repeat here what I said there:

    There is an essential oil of cannabis sativa flowers that is widely available and is produced mainly for the perfumery market. Depending on the cannabis variety it can be either virtually free of THC or high in it - the latter would not be legal in the UK but the former meets the Home Office rules and can be sold freely.

    I understand however that the essential oil does contain the aromatic substance (caryophyllene oxide) used to train dogs to sniff out illegal cannabis . . .

    Hemp oil is different - that's made from the seeds and is used in cooking among other things - it has no appreciable aroma.

    Parfumerie Generale - Coze has sativa as a note.
    Nasomatto - Black Afgano is supposed to smell of hashish

    I've never seen a cannabis extract used in perfumery although I have seen an analysis of cannabis oil. I think a mixture of Patchouli and Vetikol Acetate smells remarkably like grass.

    Than it's maybe not a good thing to use it in perfumes if you don't want your clients to have problems while wearing it in airports or stations

    I’m ashamed to report that my first thought when I realised was more along the lines of ‘think of the fun you could have fooling the dogs and border agents’ but I guess that must have been my heavily suppressed anarchic nature leaking out . . .

    Along these lines (forgive the pun), what dogs actually smell to detect cocaine is Methyl_benzoate which is commonly used in perfumes.

    Fascinating - and perhaps that explains why so few dog-induced searches result in convictions as that is a very common perfume ingredient indeed.

    I’m amazed at the things I learn via Basenotes sometimes: I had no idea there was such a thing as a bed bug detection dog, or even that bed bugs had a distinctive smell. I live and learn!

    I do this thing called Oil of the day on my blog and wanted to use "Canabis Sativa" as my next Oil of the day but I need some more info. Is it a top, middle, or base note? what is the strength of the aroma? How would you best describe the scent?

    Enfleurage offers an essential oil of hemp: http://www.enfleurage.com/products/hemp.html

    I'm assuming this is fragrant and not the carrier oil. I think I smelled it once before.

    hemp is from the seed, Canabis oil is from the flowers

    I had a small sample of cannabis EO from Canada a few years ago. Very expensive, and I was disappointed to find a fresh grassy type fragrance - nothing like the smoke you smell from the odd passerby in Brixton. I would dearly love to make authentic smelling hashish incense!

    Default Re: Cannabis in perfumery

    That's the scent i want, if you ever walked upon or someone past by you who smoked a few minutes ago that aroma smells so good. I think even with pure HTC cannabis Oil you will not get the smell. I think the heat or burning of the oil is the only way to get that smell, like it is heat activated.

    I wonder if you could bottle the smoke and let the smoke residue settle in the bottle then add a carrier oil to soak up the scent???

    That would be an excellent idea - if it was legal!

    I have done it, I have come up with a oil that smells like someone has just smoked and the scent is stuck in their clothes. I think it smells like it, my friend who doesnt smoke, cant stand the smell of the smoke. Said when ask to describe the scent of this oil I was working on first words was weed.

    I curently only have 1 (2 dram ) bottle of this but I need a seasoned nose on this. Abu since you knew the scent as I wanted it to smell I would love fore you to try it. Only problem it smells so dead on I think shipping this will be a issue.

    Last week i bought an essential oil made from fresh THC free plants. It doesent smell like cannabis smoke but like freshly crushed cannabis plant leaves or flower buds. Even from THC free plants, the scent smells very true like marijuana. Not quite cheap.

    Conni, where didi you buy it from, if I may? I don't know how the one sold by Hermitage smells like, but the odour description you give here sounds great. I've always been keen on smelling a fragrance that incorporates the uplifting, fruity smell of fresh cannabis (if you've ever been in Panjab in late october you know what I mean - very similar to the smell of osmanthus flowers flowing in the air in September)

    Wow. That's fantastic! Please, please tell me that you still have the formula so that you can make more. I would be very nervous about such a great responsibility. I assume that you're in the US, as you mentioned drams? I wouldn't trust USPS with this precious cargo! Maybe there's someone on basenotes who's not too far from yourself who can help? Maybe you can start a new thread asking for assistance. For posting, you can use a sample vial which holds around 0.3ml and should be enough to check out the fragrance. You can get the vials cheaply from www.madinaonline.com. All the best with that, and let me know how it goes, because I might be interested in buying such an oil by the lb for my incense stick production, if I can work with the price. As for the problem with the shipping, it should be fine - just make sure that the bottle is washed on the outside and sealed properly, and then put in a plastic bag before packing it.

    Hi ! I bought it from Marienfelser Naturkosmetik here in germanyhttp://www.maienfelser-naturkosmetik...93a66642750c42 He has some quite rare essential oils and a few attars. I also bought a nice saffron attar. But be aware: he is not cheap !

    yes and no, I need to tweak it because the carrier oil I used was contaminated with peppermint, I grabbed the wrong bottle, so in the back of the scent you pick up some mint. Also to me the scent doesn't have enough staying power I need to add a base oil to it, or should I just leave it as is??

    If there is someone in the Austin, Texas area that would like to put there nose on this please let me know.

    Thanks so much. I checked but couldn't find the cannabis oil - it's probably my German? . I don't know, may you provide the direct link?

    Ok, found!

    Hi Oveis, it is in the link iīve posted, the first item ( HanfŲl, šth. ). Click at the first item and you see the botanical name cannabis sativa.

    Saveonscents.com sells a few different marijuana based scents that can be used alone or in harmony with other scents to make your own creation!

    I know that "Kinski" has a Marijuana note in it that is relatively easy to detect.

    If anyone wants a 1 dram sample of my marijuana scented oil just pm me, I am open to trades. It does not smell like the plant, but smell like someone smoked it. In the bottle the scent is real pungent, but on the skin it calms down. to tame it even more you can mix it with a leather or wood note.

    Good quality black hashish would probably work well in a fragrance. A lot nicer than the strong skunkweed aroma I sometimes get from passers by.

    I've not smoked either for years, but the black is very aromatic and 'incensey'

    Cannabis fragrances seem to be quite the current fashion, what with the states in the USA that recently decriminalized small amounts of marijuana for personal use.

    Agarscents Bazaar has a blend that reportedly features cannabis. Here's the product on Sharif's website, but alas, there's no information about it here. http://www.agarscentsbazaar.com/FLEU...BIS-PARFUM.HTM

    So here's a link to the same product on Agarscents' eBay store, which does contain product information. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-FLEUR-CA...item485158d9ec

    Hope these links format properly...something around here smells, uh, funny to me.

    The very nicest incensy smelling one was the 'rocky' that was a very hard solid with a yellow/green hue and there was a 'red rocky' too. The black that smelled so nice was Afghani Black I seem to remember. There was a black oil of the same too that got delivered in very unsuitable rubber bags. I never bothered asking how they were smuggled in....

    All in the name of art you understand.
