Cassis Absolue (Ribes nigrum)
Cassis absolute, also known as blackcurrant, has a very complex fragrance, that can be described as a walk in a luxurious green forest, full of fruits, flowers and sweets. The scent is comforting, fresh and invigorating at the same time, helping to create unique perfumes.
Part of the Ribes genus, the cassis (or blackcurrant) shrub, is native to Europe and Asia. It is very popular in traditional medicines for its anti-inflammatory properties and the fruit is a rich source of vitamin C, which helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity.
Lush purchase a cassis absolute that is made in France, from the buds of the plant. It is rare and very appreciated in perfumery.
