    Even more complex and a tad brighter than Pineapple Myrtle. Very wide array of fresh, fruity and berry aromas. A bit less tenacious a scent as compared to Pineapple Myrtle.

    I was really excited to try this new oil, and it has surpassed my expectations. I can’t even begin to describe it; it’s so complex, it’s hard to believe it isn’t a blend. It is everything the website promises and more: for instance, after about half an hour, I suddenly detected a slightly minty note. Such an unexpected nuance emerging well into the diffuser session is remarkable in itself, though that’s far from the only thing to love about this oil. Myrtles in general are very multifaceted, but the way the layers of scent unfold in this one is simply exquisite!

    What an amazing array of aromas within a single oil! Slightly sweet with hints of citrus and berry, with undertones of musk and grounding wood. I find this to be so refreshing and cleansing for a room in the diffuser. Such a beautiful addition to the Australian native range – love it!
