Firmenich’s Cedarwood Virginia oil is obtained from the wood of Juniperus virginiana. The profile is typically woody, dry, reminiscent of a woody pencil mine, slightly ambery. The essential oil, combined to a perfectly monitored rectification process brings to the Perfumers a unique woody profile. The rectification process concentrates the noble woody and slightly ambery notes of Cedarwood for an unforgiving and sleek elegant inspiration.
Widely used in woody composition to give a dry woody and ambery effect. Standard dosage in Fine Fragrance application: 3 to 4%.
Obtained by distillation of the biomass with water, or steam. The essential oil is physically separated from the aqueous phase by decantation.
