The Invigorating Fir Needle
Fir needle in Perfume
Most of us associate fir needles with Christmas trees. It reminds us of the festive time of year, decorating the tree, the surprise and delight of what’s awaiting us under the tree on Christmas day. So who would have thought of its use as an invigorating ingredient in perfume. It’s crisp, it’s spicy and wild.
It’s been linked to perfume creation by the early Arab perfume makers who loved to combine it with Frankincense. The essential oil is distilled from pine needles, shoots and the cones.
