Looking for suggestions for an olive scent


Recommended Posts

I'd be interested in seeing where this thread goes...


On the subject of an "olive" scent.


The aromatics of black pepper, fig and oregano would get you close, I think...but you'd need a briney earthy sour element as well. Something like valerian root or spikenard (fermented winey) and possible even Elemi (lemony green pepper). The scent of olive oil is vastly different from that of olives (fresh or pickled). If you're looking for that fatty quality of olive oil then you can try SOS's French Fries which smells very much like oleic acid (olive oil) mixed with potato. IDK?


But for a fruitier picked from the tree aroma you might have to experiment. Best of luck.
