Verbenone

Verbenone

Its scent is well known and yet is more complex than one might think, like the plant from which it is extracted: rich, penetrating and warm. The shrub grows easily in Europe, in the Mediterranean basin, in Corsica but also in South Africa in regions benefiting from the sea air.

Quality This type of rosemary offers us an essential oil, which is quite distinct from the other two chemotypes of the species - cineole and camphor - by its complexity.
