Labdanum (Rock Rose) Absolute Wild Crafted

Choose Size

Labdanum has a very rich and complex odour, which is variously described as amber, sweet, woody, dry musk or leathery.

In skincare, rock rose is used for calm, toned, tight, young and smooth anti-aging skincare purposes. And its calm-inducing properties in aromatherapy make it a fun way to help combat stress.

Today, it is often produced for perfumery, particularly for creating scents of amber. It works as a fixative to anchor other scents.
