Gurjun balsam essential oil is gently warm, sweet and complex and you’ll find yourself regularly turning to it when in the need for the perfect material to round off rough edges and seamlessly bridging one part of a composition with another. The soft fragrance is woody, sweet, dry, balsamic and resinous with hints of pine, patchouli and camphor – beautifully calming and centering.
Gurjun balsam itself is an oleoresin exuded from trees of the Dipterocarpus species which grow in various parts of Asia, particularly in India and is used in the varnish and lacquer industry there. In natural perfumery can be used in a wide variety of compositions as inexpensive fixative and blender/modifier in the same way as other similar materials such as copaiba, guaiacwood and sandalwood.
