The exotic scent of Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia) CO2 extract is warming and comforting. Many blends incorporate vanilla to soften other components and to give them a deep, rich aroma. Vanilla CO2 is often used in perfumery when creating sensual or aphrodisiac blends. A tiny bit of vanilla is all that is needed to sweeten and round out any synergy. This beautiful extract contains 12% vanillin. It is an extremely thick oil and may need to be warmed slightly for use. Because of the thickness of the oil, the sample vial does not come with an orifice reducer.
