Absolutes differ from essential oils in that they contain a higher proportion of dyes, waxes and other components of the plant, so the aroma is highly concentrated and is more faithful to the natural aroma of the plant. The extraction process is through the use of solvents, and because traces of solvent may remain, they are only used for natural botanical perfumery.
