Swirl this essence under your nose and be transported to languid lounges and Parisian cafes. Captivating White Cognac Essential Oil is distilled from the ‘lees’, which is the wine precipitate from the oak barrels after Cognac has been properly aged. The process of steam distillation removes the alcohol and captures the aromatic spirit of this fruity, euphoric essence. Cognac adds charisma to colognes and perfumes as they become imbued with muscatel fruity notes that bring levity to firs, flowers, and roots.

“I meditate, I do yoga and I have a lot of friends who are healers... And if none of that works, I go by a chocolate bar and a bottle of cognac.”
