    Our French clary sage opens with complex notes of herbs and flowers. It is by far the most floral and luxurious clary sage we have experienced which is what led us to select it for our exclusive offering. Traditionally manufactured and steam distilled onsite, this oil is the finest example of a truly versatile and loved top note oil.

    Clary sage blends perfectly with bergamot, lavender and other fresh notes, adding complexity and interest. Touches were used to great effect in Moment Supreme where it modifies the beautiful aldehydic lavender opening and helps unite the central floral notes of the fragrance with the sweet labdanum in the dry down.

    Origin: France

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Clary Sage Oil, France, An Indepth Look:

    Clary Sage oil is a colorless to pale yellow or olive-colored liquid, sweet-herbaceous, tenacious in odor, soft and somewhat reminiscent of [ambergris] in its bitter-sweet undertone. Apart from the initial linalyl acetate-linalool notes, there is a very characteristic note in the odour of clary sage oil. The note remains in the dryout odour on a perfume blotter. Some perfumers describe it as tobacco-like, others as balsamic or tea-like.

    Clary sage oil is used in perfumery as an individual body or as a modifier for bergamot oil, lavender, etc. and for [ambergris] notes with labdanum extracts, cistus oil, olibanum resinoid, cinnamic alcohok, nitromusks or synthetic ambergris materials, etc.; in chypre bases, fougères, Oriental and “tabac”-type fragrances and in modern fantasy creations with aldehydic notes or even in woody bases.

    In the classical type of cologne perfumes it lends unique tenacity and acts as a very fragrant fixative, particularly in combinaiton with labdanum products and musks. It blends beautifully with coriander, cardamom, citrus oils, avandin and lavender, geranium oil, sandalwood oil, eugenol and derivatives, cedarwood derivatives, methylionones, phenylethyl alcohol, etc.

    Lovely clary sage with a definite rich chocolate note. Less green than others.
