Cardamom has a sweet, pungent aroma that you may recognize from Asian Cuisine. This warming spice blends beautifully with florals, citrus, and other spices. Add it to perfume blends to increase complexity, but when it comes to Cardamom don't be heavy handed, the spice can be quite loud in large doses. Some fun fragrances to experiment combining Cardamom with are Banana, Chocolate, Mandarin, Clove, Ginger, Grapefruit, Pear, or Vanilla.
We carry both a Cardamom Essential Oil, and a Cardamom CO2 Extract. Both are high quality oils, devoid of the bitterness that can sometimes be found in cheaper Cardamoms. Of the two, Cardamom CO2 Extract is my personal favorite.
