The benzoin is a shrub covered with resin that is recovered to make a balm that gives off a vanilla scent, warm and woody.

Benzoin comes from a bush of type sytrax found in Indonesia, Greece or Laos. Its resin is recovered and extracted with volatile solvents to obtain benzoin resinoid. Benzoin has a vanilla, warm, woody smell which reminds us of caramel or cocoa butter. It is found in our fragrance kilim, an oriental perfume made of patchouli with flowery and spicy notes.
