Report: Essential Oils of Tasmania to Extract Fragrance from Pearls
Posted: May 27, 2014
Essential Oils of Tasmania, a unit of Atlas Pearls and Perfumes (Perth, Australia), will use a grant from Commercialisation Australia to build a plant in Tasmania to extract ingredients from South Sea pearls for their fragrant properties, according to a recent news report.
According to The West Austrialian, a local newspaper in Perth, Austrialia, Atlas produces a salty, floral pearl perfume named Ayu. Atlas plans to broaden its production of Ayu, which it already sells on a small scale at its Claremont store, and will also sell the extract to other perfumeries, the report said.
