    One of the oldest resins used in perfumery, Myrrh is the bitter sweet gum which was offered as a gift by St. Balthasar to Christ at His birth. It was used by the Ancient Egyptians as a beautifying skin treatment and by the Ancient Greeks as a food additive.

    In the fragrance industry, Myrrh often forms part of a classic Opoponax base which should not to be confused with Opoponax resinoid sometimes called “sweet myrrh” adding further confusion.

    It should be noted that this product is technically a “resin-absolute” because it is cold extracted directly from the raw gum with ethanol. This is the preferred method for better odour properties as no damage is done to the product in manufacturing.

    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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 100%
    IFRA 49: 100%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
