    Default Enfleurage

    Has anyone ever tried an enfleurage. I have heard of using crisco or another type of vegetable fat. Taking say rose petals or any aromatic product and putting them in a layer of the fat for awhile and then melting it straining it and repeating the process. My question is after you have a finished product( I have a violet flower)how do you use the fat in a perfume or how do I get rid of the fat and keep the aroma? Any thoughts.

    Hi Cason,

    I've tinctured smoke a while ago, and the parallel with enfleurage is to get the scent eventually out of the fat.
    It's easy, take a look at the last steps here:

    Happy perfuming!
