What Stillpoint "Nose"
Tobacco Absolute is a rare a unique absolute. This extract contains no nicotine, but has been helpful to people that want to quit smoking. It assists with the psychological aspect of quitting not the physical ones. This absolute has deep tobacco aroma. It actually reminds me of my dad smoking his pipe back in the day.
This isn't a very easy scent to blend with and all you need is one drop. It is traditionally used in perfunery and fragrance formulation. It adds a masculine scent and feel to a blend. It is especially nice to include in formulations for men and formulations that need a more masculine note. Some of our customers feel that it adds a hint of a musky presence to the blend.

All parts of the plant are sticky, being covered with short viscid-glandular hairs which exude a yellow secretion containing nicotine. (Wikipedia)
