The warm heady licorice aroma will bring back childhood memories of black licorice shared with friends. A wonderful perfumery addition in subtle quantities, especially in Citrus blends or as an underpinning to a Vanilla blend. Fishermen believe that the scent of anise attracts fish! Place a small bottle in your favorite fisherman's tackle box along with a few sticks of licorice for him and make them both (fish and man) happy campers. Pure anise will turn to a solid crystal at 59 degrees F. Heat it up in a dish of warm water and the container will stay liquid until the temperature once again goes down to 59 degrees.
Anise (Pimpinella anisum)
