Palmarosa is related to lemongrass but contains high levels of geraniol, giving it a sweet and rosy scent.

Arctander says

Palmarosa oil is a pale yellow or pale olive colored liquid with a sweet, floral-rosy odor and various undertones or topnotes according to the quality and age of the oil Palmarosa oil is the best natural source of geraniol of all essential oils. Palmarosa is used in many perfumes, particularly in soap perfumes, where its great tenacity is of outstanding effect.

Palmarosa oils blends well with all the conventional soap perfume materials and it forms an excellent base with small amounts of geranium oil and oakmoss absolute. Combinations with canaga (ylang ylang), rosewood, guiac, and amyris are excellent bases for further development or soap perfumes. In flavors, palmarosa was one of the first flavors used in tobacco.
