The experimentation is about making a flavored / perfumed liquor with lavender and rose.

Rose in solvent.
- lavender extract, 1ml
- rose extract, 1 ml
It's very bitter, so it's better to add some fruit sugar. The taste of rose is slightly stronger, but it makes me really feel like ingesting a perfume, so I'd leave it like this. A nice flowery smell is still present in my throat after a couple of minits of ingestion. It's a nice sensation between tasting and smelling.
[Why did I choose rose and lavender combination?]
Inspired by the idea of flavor coupling, I was looking for a "good couple" to test. "He" and "she" should contain common substance(s). At the perfumery school in Grasse I've learned that there is a common chemical substance in rose oil and lavender oil.
lavender oil - main substances
- Linalool (10 - 20 %)
- Linalyl acetate (30 - 60%)
- Lavandulyl Acetate
rose oil (Damascus) - main substances
- Citronellol (45 - 50% )
- Linalool (20 - 25%)
- Phenyl ethyl alcohol (1 - 2 %)
- Nonyl alcohol
