Myrrhe The resin (also myrrha, murr = bitter) obtained from balsam trees is characterized by a very warm, slightly spicy-sweet scent and a persistent bitter, scratchy taste.

It is used as anti-inflammatory medicine and in the perfumery industry. The substance has been used to aromatise wine since ancient times.

The smell or taste can also occur naturally in the wine and is also called balsamic in the context of a wine-tasting.
