Balsam Peru has a warm, earthy, vanilla-like aroma and amazing fixative power that makes it popular for perfumery and soap making. "Scent fading" can be a major concern when blending essential oils for fragrance purposes. Balsam Peru helps to increase the staying power of lighter notes as well as adding sweetness and depth to many blends.
