Perfumery and vanilla

Vanilla planifolia is a vine growing plant indigenous to several tropical climates; Central and South America, Mexico, India, and South Africa with a very high quality originating from the island of Madagascar produces vanilla more than 65% of the world's.

Vanilla planifolia orchid produces a vanilla beans pods After flowering, long pods emerge that are also referred to as beans due to their long bean-like shape.

The quality of pure vanilla oil obtained for perfumery is closely related to the natural vanillin components it contains.


In other words!

The higher the component ratio of natural vanillin in vanilla, the more expensive the price tag will be. Therefore natural vanilla oil and extract are among the most expensive fragrances in perfumery

Generally considered to be a highly prized fragrance derived from the fruit shoots of the vanilla flower and the Orchid flower of Madagascar.

The production of 1 kg of vanilla oil requires approximately 500 kg of Vanilla Beans pods , which corresponds to pollination of approximately 40 000 vanilla orchid flowers.

Natural vanillin is the natural ingredient that gives vanilla its distinctive aroma and taste.


Solvent extraction involves the use of an organic solvent, such as ethanol or hexane, to obtain the oil. In the case of our Vanilla Absolute, ethanol is used as a solvent. A mixture of ethanol (grain alcohol) and water is used to extract the vanilla from the macerated beans. Then the alcohol and water are evaporated leaving only pure vanilla paste. Oils extracted using an organic solvent are defined as “absolute oils.” like CO2 extraction, the solvent mixes with the plant material and extracts the oil. Once the oil has been extracted, the solvent must be meticulously removed. If not done carefully, trace amounts of the solvent could be left behind, which is undesirable.

Because no trace of carbon dioxide is left behind in an oil once it returns to its gaseous state, CO2 oils are said to have fewer impurities than solvent extracted oils. In general, CO2 extraction also yields more oil than solvent extraction.

Very rich, sweet, dense, characteristic vanilla aroma with a faint bitter undertone, chocolate-like nuances oil

This product is soluble in both fixed (carrier) oils and 190 proof alcohol; not soluble in water.

Vanilla CO2 Extract

Vanilla CO2 Extracts are becoming more readily available. They are a beautiful, more natural and alcohol/solvent-free way to best working with vanilla.

The CO2 supercritical extraction process allows the production staff to more easily control the proportions of certain desirable and or sometimes, certain undesirable constituents that wind up in the final CO2 extract. In the case of Vanilla CO2 Extract, the aldehyde, isolate vanillin, is a crucial component in determining the aromatic profile of the extract.

The ratio of natural vanillin in vanilla oil is directly proportional to the quality and price of the oil obtained from the product. Premium quality oil with 26% natural vanillin content is obtained by distilling the resinous vanilla extract in high quality Madagascar vanilla sticks, Supercritical Co2.

Very rich, warm, sweet, and has a somewhat woody/animalic-like aroma oil

Soluble in fixed oils, but is prone to sedimentation when diluted in high proof alcohol

Vanilla Oleoresin

Oleoresin Vanilla can be stored for years as it does not oxidize '20+ years'.

Vanilla oleoresin is not technically an essential oil

Vanilla Extract, like the type that is used for baking, is made by macerating vanilla beans in ethanol or another form of alcohol. Produced by taking Vanilla Extract and removing the ethanol or whatever solvent was used to originally produce the Vanilla Extract.

Vanilla Oleoresin can be thicker than many essential oils. It depends on the Vanilla Oleoresin and on how much of the solvent has been removed. It can also depend upon your current room temperature. The cooler the oleoresin is, the thicker it will be to work with and Vanilla Oleoresin dissolves best in water and alcohol based solutions Unlike essential oils, Vanilla Oleoresin is lipophobic and unfortunately does not properly dissolve in carrier oils.

This is a highly viscous oil that requires the use of a dispersing solvent such as Alcohol: water mix, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin or Propane Diol (natural) for it to mix well in your formulation. If using alcohol to disperse the vanilla you will need to dilute the alcohol a little. Try starting with 95% of our alcohol : 5% water (our alcohol is a 95% strength so this takes it to 90% alcohol concentration and 10% water). You can use the Propane Diol neat to disperse the oleoresin.

This oil can be diluted at least 50% and still retain a very strong odour.

Very thick, molasses-like, dark brown liquid

Characteristic, rich, sweet, earthy oil

Vanillin Natural Isolate perfumery:

The vanilla obtained by this method is probably the most intense and strong vanilla scent on world.

95% pure vanillin and is crystallised powder in appearance. Therefore not liquid and chiefly aimed towards the perfumery. However this material can be used for food flavouring, in confectionery, ice creams, cakes, desserts, beverages and liqueurs, for tooth-paste flavouring, for taste improvement of lipsticks and again in perfumery.

The aroma is of course vanillin rich but the trace constituents round this material off resulting in a beautiful inimitable natural vanilla aroma. This material is obtained from the dried vanilla beans by supercritical fluid extraction with natural carbon dioxide. This product vanilla is a definitely recommended specialty perfumery ingredient.

Slightly caramelized, Extra sweet, Devoid of woody nuances and no very complex layers, vanilla candy sweetness, chocolaty and gourmand aroma.

This product can be diluted at least 5% and still retain a ultra strong odour.
