The aroma of Cucumber Hydrosol is light and is reminiscent to the aroma one experiences when cutting up a fresh cucumber. Don't expect the aroma of true Cucumber Distillate to be as strong as synthetic cucumber fragrance/flower waters.
Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).
