Does beeswax smell?  Yes, it does: it’s honeyed, musky, softly sweet and intimate, sometimes with hints of pollen.  Natural perfumers – whose palette of ingredients is limited – love it, as it delivers an ‘animalic’ quality yet is cruelty-free, generally harvested from hives that have matured over five years or so, carefully harvested by hand and then extracted using solvents.  Beeswax also works brilliantly as a fixative, helping to anchor will-o’-the-wisp, volatile notes.
