I have had a few harvests of the blackcurrant bud and only one seemed to smell of cat pee…. the others from the same distributor at different time smelt very much like the blackcurrant bud…. yes I have just sniffed it now….. but it is the oil and wild…. very fruity….the distributor uses organic or wild with very long distillation no chemical and detergents to clean the specially designed steel apparatus for low temperature distillation.
So would harvests due to particular climate of that year alter pheromonal and odour intensities?
