Perfumery: Surprisingly, Celery seed essential oil is used frequently in perfumery, but in only very small amounts, and imparts a warm, green-spicy addition. Used carelessly, it can ruin a good perfume. It can be found in florals, orientals, lavender bouquets as well as modern fantasy and aldehydic perfumes.
