    Default What to do with Lilac Enfleurage?

    Hi all,

    I have just finished my lilac enfleurage (plenty of lilacs from my garden).
    I used shea butter. It seems that the butter is well saturated with the fresh smell of lilacs.
    Now I would like to do a lilac pomade.
    However, it doesn't seem to stay long on the skin.
    I am thinking to mix with some base notes. The enfelurage has captured mostly the top notes.
    I have some Peru balsam and Benzoin. Should I add these to the enfleurage around 1% ?
    Perhaps they can give some depth. I don't want to alter the lilac scent a lot neither.
    I don't know how they did lilac pomade in ancient times.
    What do you think ?

    I would rather add some clean musk, some exaltolide total perhaps

    or maybe a bit of peonile
