Uh, basil oil does smell like licorice. It is THE highly concentrated "ESSENCE" of the plant material. Therefore, basil oil is in the same vein of smells as anise, licorice, fennel, and caraway. All products I have purchased from Jedwards IS TOP NOTCH. Their customer service is UNSURPASSED. This basil oil is the best price you will find for 100% PURE, UNADULTERATED basil oil of very high quality.
First time purchasing basil oil. This is concentrated and smells somewhat like licorice. Smells "therapeutic".
