This French source has a mild sweet top note, earthy and root-like body notes and woody-herbal low notes. As a baseline Dr. Steffen Arctander describes lower notes as fatty-oily and spicy. In nature the oil contains significant amounts of terpenes; especially monoterpenes. However, these do not determine the unique carrot seed aroma.
It's primary aromatherapy use is for skin tone, scars, and acne.
Carrot seed blends well with Citrus, Fennel, Frankincense, and Geranium.
