Aromatic Scent: Clove Bud (Indonesia) Essential Oil smells like the actual cloves from which it has been distilled. The aroma of this oil is typical of the Indonesian variety, which is spicier than the Sri Lankan and Indian varieties, being less sweet and slightly more herbaceous. Because of this difference, we recommend that you order a sample before making a larger order.
