Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes
are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in
this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For
those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be
evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance -
particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost.
Cautions: Dilute before use; May cause skin
irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use.
Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Highly concentrated, dilute properly before use. Keep away from eyes & mucous membranes. Not For Internal Use. If pregnant, seek professional advice before use.
