Very thick + concentrated!
Just as described in the product description, this product is very thick. It seems very high quality + smells amazing. I've ordered this product from Camden Grey many times, and it's usually consistent in quality + use friendliness. However, what I received in my most recent order came in different packaging than usual, was MUCH thicker than previous orders, and was not oil soluble. After a couple of hours of double boiler to try to melt and mix it with a carrier oil, all it wouldn't mix. After pouring off the carrier oil and proceeding to clean my double boiler, the absolute mixed completely with the water! This is not an absolute, it's more of an oleoresin. High quality! But not oil soluble, which was what I ordered and what I need for my product. REPEAT: As of 2/11/2017, this product that they currently have in stock is NOT OIL SOLUBLE.
Very concentrated, a little bit will go a long way. It is thick and need to be warmed up in the warm water bath. I like that it is food grade too.
Defitenely the real deal. Worth the price.
The best guilty pleasure EVER!
I can't believe I waited years to buy this! The smell is fabulous! I melded mine with Jojoba oil, a little work to get it to blend, but worth it. A tip: There is residual inside the bottle. I added jojoba to the old bottle to get out every drop, and this worked very well for me. One of the best presents I bought for myself.
A BIT PRICEY BUT WORTH IT!
I was reluctant to purchase such a pricey oil but my vanilla blends have become very popular with customers so I went for it - no regrets! I blended this absolute with sandalwood in a mist and customers (MEN AND WOMEN) are gaga over it - totally worth the price!
I really like this one -- and for the price, too! It's not exactly cheap, but it doesn't smell cheap, either and is of good quality and workable. One vanilla absolute I got with another company came to me really thick, sticky and wouldn't dissolve into anything! So if it's your first time buying vanilla absolute, this is definitely the way to go, especially for the price point.
A few years ago when I first became interested in making toiletries, I bought what I thought was vanilla absolute. I hated it. It made my head hurt very badly, so I was turned off by vanilla. I don't know what made me decide to try this one, but I am so glad I did. When I first opened the bottle, I literally wanted to jump in it and stay there. It is a very sweet fragrance, but not cloying. Unlike vanilla extract (which in all honesty I expected this to smell like), it does not leave an alcohol 'after smell'. It is heady. The fragrance is long lasting. Truly divine.
