Before being an alcoholic beverage (absinthe), wormwood is first and foremost a species of plant from the Asteraceae family. Native to Europe, Asia and North Africa, wormwood grows in regions with a temperate climate and on arid land. This aromatic plant is much more known for its liquor than for its therapeutic or olfactory virtues. In a composition, absinthe diffuses a green scent with a slight bitterness. Its perfume is very aerial and aromatic. It brings a lot of dynamism, lightness but also more floral facets and almost mentholated notes.
