    Anyone know of a reliable seller of a good quality, pure absolute? Preferably in the UK or the EU?
    Thanks

    Sorry.....not in the UK but a great source nontheless....Perfumersapprentice.com.
    Purchased some a while back and couldn't be happier. Deep,rich,thick tobacco leaf. Really great stuff. I highly recommend you take a look.

    The only 1 I know of is this one, but it's very expensive:

    I can also recommend Perfumers Apprentice tobacco absolute. I'm pretty sure they ship to UK.

    Liberty Naturals has a nicotine free absolute, and a regular concrete, both from Bulgaria, both inexpensive, but they are currently out of the regular concrete

    Ever since I read about the Basenotes purse fragrance, I have been wanting to make an Ancient of Days one, with scents of Arpege, leather, fallen flakes of cigarette tobacco, a hint of spilled Old School Jergen's lotion, sort of almond-cherry-ish, rice powder and taffeta, though the last two would have to be more metaphorical than literal, I guess...

    Hi,

    I think I'm allowed to say this under forum rules about advertising... ("We do allow discrete links in signatures, and you may respond to a thread if your business provides a product or service that provides an answer to a members problem." )

    We have a Tobacco Leaf Absolute made up into extrait (20% aromatic in alcohol) at Essentially Me:

    Hope that helps,

    Alcohol is the correct dilutent. tobacco is strong stuff, I recommend diluting to 10% or even 5% - my 20% dillution is too strong to use easilly in anything other than a "tabac" fragrance.
