Labdanum has a very rich and complex odor, which is variously described as amber, sweet, woody, dry musk or leathery.
In skincare, rockrose is used for calm, toned, tight, young and smooth anti-aging skincare purposes. And its calm-inducing properties in aromatherapy make it a fun way to help combat stress.
