The use of anise in perfumery

The strong point of anise in perfumery is that each of its parts is fragrant. As such, anise is widely used in perfumery and is known to bring an aromatic, green and spicy touch to perfumes that contain it. Its essential oil is obtained by hydrodistillation of the plant in its entirety. In other words, it consists in injecting a stream of water vapor previously heated in contact with the anise. This vapor thus takes care of the smell of this plant before being distilled. Most often, anise comes to integrate woody, chypre or belonging to the fern family. If star anise is a variety of very different shape but with a somewhat similar smell, know that it develops a more spicy flavor.
