    With the highest fixative power of all the iris products, orris resinoid is a hidden gem that far too few perfumers take advantage of. This should not be confused with orris butter which is actually a true essential oil; orris resinoid is deep brown in colour while orris butter (also known as orris concrete) is a white waxy solid.

    In addition to being a great fixative, Orris Resinoid imparts a lovely sweet Iris root note quite similar to that of orris powder but more intense and certainly more compatible with perfumery. This is perhaps the truest scent of the rhizome as the concrete (essential oil) has a far lighter and less earthy scent.

    We are selling this resinoid pure and in a 50% dilution in natural (EU & US) Triethyl Citrate as it is difficult to work with pure as it is highly viscous. Please ensure you select the right dilution from the options. 

    In addition to this well priced Germanica resinoid, we also stock the more expensive Orris Pallida Resinoid which is more floral and deep and less powdery.

    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

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

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.
