This recent French harvest has a mild sweet top note, earthy and root-like body notes and woody-herbal low notes. However, these do not determine the unique carrot seed aroma. European perfumers use it with chypres, citrus, costus, cassie, mimosa, fougeres, geranium, ionones and methyliones, and cedarwood derivatives. Oriental perfumes and fantasy blends contain small quantities of carrot seed oil. Aromatherapy use is primarily for skin tone, scars, and acne. Carrot seed blends well with Citrus, Fennel, Frankincense, and Geranium.
