The plant in depth

Rosewood is a magnificent tropical evergreen tree that reaches up to 30m in height. Endemic to the Amazon rainforest, it can be found in Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil. Thesweet, refreshing odor it exudes is responsible for the poetic name of “rosewood.” Many other species have the same common name. These are often species from the Dalbergia genus or other trees of the Pterocarpus genus, so named for the pinkish color of their wood, which is highly prized in cabinetmaking. The essential oil of Aniba roseaodora rosewood is extracted from the wood stripped of its bark. The precious, woody fragrance is wrapped in sweet, rosy, floral notes.

Over time, the intensive exploitation of rosewood for essential-oil production significantly depleted the natural resource. International safeguards have been put in place, such as the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), classifying it as “endangered.”  At the request of Brazil, the only essential-oil producer, Aniba roseaodora was placed on List II of the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). This measure led to development of export quotas and made it possible to stem illegal trade and unlawful logging. Albert Vieille’s rosewood essential oil is exported with a CITES certificate that guarantees compliance with quotas and respect for biodiversity.
