Destructive distillation of Inidan Boswellia serrata resin.
Choyas are a fascinating group of materials. Produced exclusively in India, the base material (in this case, frankincense resin) is placed into sealed earthenware vessels, known as Choyas, which are then heated over a gentle fire until dark, extremely smoky, tarry, leathery smelling oil drips from a small spout. Imagine the smell of the inside of a very old chimney! This process is known as destructive distillation and results in some of the most intensely fragrant materials available to the perfumer.
For use in tiny amounts in leather, fireplace, old church, incense accords etc.
Supplied here diluted to 10% by weight in isopropyl myristate for ease of use.
