Frankincense is a resinous material obtained from a Boswellia tree species. The most common use of frankincense (also called olibanum) is as an incense. In perfumery, frankincense is very versatile thanks to its peppery citrus top and woody balsamic base. Frankincense lends a lift to citrus and green fragrances, and brings softness to oriental blends.
Frankincense adds to the perfume composition woody, balsamic and peppery nuances.
