Perfumed Spirit


Botanical Name : Theobroma Cacao

Country of Origin : Ivory Coast

Olfactive Family : Greedy

Harvester : Behave

Harvested part : Beans

Main application : Diffusion

The spirit or alcoholate of cocoa (Theobrama Cacao) is an alcoholic extract that is obtained by cold washing of the concrete of cocoa. It is made from cocoa beans sourced in the Ivory Coast. This old method has been brought up to date by our sourcing manager and allows us to get as close as possible to the original smell of the bean. And to retranscribe the whole of its olfactory spectrum.

This luscious, balmy extract is ideal for creating characterful perfumes or simply for enhancing your cosmetic creations. But above all, it will surprise you with its irresistible musky and reassuring fragrance.



From the very first bursts of the note, one is drawn to appreciate the splendid nuance between cocoa and chocolate. While the one and the other join in a balmy greediness as much as powdered, the distinction imposes itself little by little with the woody and animal evolution of the cocoa bean. Moreover, if bitterness were not a taste but a smell, we would find it here in its greatest elegance. The trail grows, evokes the undergrowth, and surrounds us with a powerful, musky, reassuring aura.

In food

CoE number : 452

*The CoE number is a European number of alimentary products. It is essential to be able to use them in food, without it, you are not allowed to consume them. Le Sourceur rejects any responsibility in case of non respect of these rules. Our alcoholates are also very concentrated in alcohol, it seems that they are ideal to use to create syrups, cocktails or any dish to be eaten cold, especially desserts. On the other hand and after many tests, their flash point seems too low to be of any interest in a hot dish, unless added after cooking, just before serving. Be careful with their use in the kitchen, too much of them can be dangerous. If in doubt, contact a specialist.

our recipes

We advise you to use the Cocoa alcohol for a small perfumed touch, go with parsimony at the risk of tasting several times your dish before tasting it. Also be careful with its alcohol content, especially for children. However, it should be noted that the alcohol is food grade.
