I have a difficult time finding Peru Balsam. This oil is lovely and a good price.

This is one of my top essential oils for scent! It has a wonderful sweet scent. It's not as intensely sweet as something like orange, it's more of a deeper sweet with some vanilla and almost musky tones. Very lovely as a base note in perfumes where you want sweetness but also some depth.

This is my new favorite essential oil! It has an earthy vanilla scent with hints of smoke and wood. It has a very sweet scent that will blend well with many other oils.
Note: It is very thick!, like oily sap. Heating helps thin it a little bit, but not much.

This is a rich, deep, and lovely scent. I find it appeals to men and women alike, though I use it in my masculine soaps
