  Cognac (no ratings yet)
Vitis vinifera, France
•Essential oil of Cognac
•Steam distilled from lees
•Intensely green, fresh, herbaceous aroma
•Somewhat harsh fruity undertone
•Therapeutic use undetermined
•Useful “Gourmand” blends addition in tiny amounts


Not a solvent-extracted absolute but a true essential oil, distilled from the lees left in the barrel when Cognac has been properly aged. Redistilled to remove the alcohol... this product is less than 1% ethanol (alcohol) but contains all the rich flavorings of a fine aged Cognac. Arctander writes “cognac oil is a pale yellow or greenish yellow, somewhat oily liquid of intensely strong, almost harsh-fruity, oily-fatty, yet green-herbaceous odor of outstanding tenacity and great diffusive power.”

This “White Cognac” essential oil is a bit less tart than the Green Cognac distilled in Bulgaria in copper stills, with more of a fruity note.

Said to blend well with Lavender and other, more exotic florals. Just a hint will brighten and lift complex perfumes. For masculine products, try blending with Patchouli, Cedarwood, or with Sandalwood. Try blending with citrus fruits, vanilla, or other food based oils for “gourmand” fragrance blends. WE plan to blend with Cocoa CO2, or with Coffee. Can you say “Truffle Blends”??? It truly is not a pleasant aroma used alone, but should be used in tiny amounts in blends.
