This fragrance has light green floral notes that are delicate. A truly celestial, uplifting scent. In natural perfumery it can be used, 'to produce sweet-herbaceous notes in certain floral perfumes e.g. jasmin, orange blossom, gardenia, sweet pea, freesia, and to produce new effects in wood or aldehydic perfumes or non-floral type in general. As in intensifier of clary sage, melaleuca bracteata, michelia leaf oil, or other tea-like fragrances, it is unsurpassed naturalness". - Steffen Artander.
