    Hay absolute, otherwise known as foin or foin coupé (literally meaning "cut hay") is one of the most beautiful of all the absolutes. Critic Chandler Burr said: "One of the most sublime of all perfume materials. Hay is, as literally as possible, the smell of liquid summer sunlight." Combined with our stunning classic Foin Coupé base and a fond of green oakmoss and lavender "Avice Hill", you have the tools for truly remarkable fragrances.

    In addition to the expected coumarin notes, hay absolute is fruity, tabacco like, sweet and radiant. In traces it imparts a special je ne sais quoi, and in larger amounts it can become the star of the show.

    Steffan Arctander had this to say: "Hay absolute is used in perfumery not only in “new mown hay” bases, or in combination with flouve, melilotus, tonka, woodruff, deertongue, etc., but also as an individual note to be introduced whenever a truly herbaceous-sweet undertone is required: in lavender, fougere, chypre, colognes, tea-notes, tabac-notes, forest notes and various bouquets."

    Because hay absolute is so thick, we supply it at 50% dilution in Triethyl Citrate Natural making it ISO 9235 compliant.

    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.

    Indispensable for Tobacco Accords

    Provides an aspect of realism for tobacco that is complementary to what you get with coumarin/tabanon/vanilla aromachemicals/immortelle absolute. Critical if one wants a realistic tobacco accord without using any tobacco absolute.

    All Day Summer

    This beautiful scent is incredible, it smells like real, clean, warm hay with none of the unpleasant animalic barn aspects you might associate with hay. It's like innocent, childhood Summers at the farm and warm afternoons. It's also tenacious; I had it on a scent strip at my desk for days and it still smelled amazing. I could have this on my desk every day; it's so delightful.
