Swirling a glass of Cognac in a swanky lounge suggests images of old Hollywood glamour or an outdoor cafe in Paris. Cognac essential oil offers these heady, evocative and romantic images – and more.
Used by high-end natural perfumers all over the world, Cognac essential oil has a very complex aroma with aromatic notes of tartness and muscatel (grape) fruitiness and a complex, earthy richness. It has a fine wine or liqueur fragrance that is sometimes used to draw out the uniqueness of other essential oils when dropped into blends. It helps lift and modify certain notes in perfume formulas by providing a base or foundation note to lighter, sweeter essences.
Native to France (a town named Cognac) and the Mediterranean, the source of this essence is Vitis vinifera (common grape vine), which can sprout over 5,000 varieties of grapes. Produced from the wine precipitate known as “lees,” Cognac essential oil is extracted through steam distillation. As a specialty essential oil, Cognac will synergistically enhance your most beloved fragrances, providing exceptional and distinct nuances unique to this essential oil.
