Absolutes & Concretes
Absolute Oils are produced by solvent extraction.
Absolutes dissolve in alcohol and fixed oils but not in water. As the name implies, solvent extraction causes substances such as petroleum ether to pass through the prepared plant parts. The solvent is then evaporated off leaving a mixture of waxes and oil. This is called “concrete”.
After the removal of the waxes, the highly fragrant, intensely strong substance known as the absolute remains.
A concrete is the first step to producing an absolute oil.
The freshly harvested plant parts are then dipped into a solvent, usually hexane. This results in a highly fragrant and usually solid mass due largely to the high wax content. This material is usually further processed in order to obtain an absolute oil – by definition it is entirely alcohol soluble.
Concretes though can prove to be very valuable within perfumery, often showcasing further complexity in aroma profile than that of the corresponding absolute. They are also available at a lower cost than the matching absolute yet rarely available for sale. Due to their wax content, concretes are ideally used within solid perfumes – but require filtration if used in alcohol based perfumes.
