    Default Is there a blue lotus fragrance available?

    I'm seeking something with real blue lotus in it. I actually don't know what it smells like but blue lotus was said to be an Ancient Egypt favorite plant/flower. Anything with historical and or ancient significance I have an interest in and blue lotus just comes to mind. I'd be seeking this as an essential oil as well. I hope it exists.

    I recall from what I was told by some people at Fragonard in Grasse that their Beau Gosse (which by the way is a very nice scent) is supposed to contain blue lotus from the Indian sub continent. Can't confirm the veracity of that though.

    I have a feeling that there is a cream from Clinique have blue Lotus in them because I was asked to make a fragrance that matched it long ago. I got mine sent to me directly from India but I have no idea how pure it is or isn't.

    lf you go to the Advanced Search option in the directory & type "blue lotus" into the notes box, several fragrances come up. One of these l have tried; Secret Garden by Aftelier, a nice, warm floral.

    Nature's Gift has a Blue Lotus absolute, I have a little sample of it in 10% dilution. It's very pricey. They offer free samples with purchase, you just have to remember to ask for what you want to try in the comments when you check out. I think there's a caveat that you're not guaranteed to get the sample you ask for, but they have always given me at least enough to sniff what I asked for (with other purchases).

    It's definitely floral, I hate to say it but it's not my favorite floral oil, but I do like it more than their white lotus absolute.
