Sourcing clary sage EO Russia

Anyone purchased a good Clary Sage Russia recently? I'm looking for that heady, sweet, slightly aquatic, herbaceous smell. Recently purchased Clary Sage Russia from Eden and Mandy Aftel's Clary Sage EO/chef's essence and found that both, unlike previous orders (made over a year ago), are lacking in that heady sweetness, more bitter, and lacking in depth. Thanks for any help.

I get nice Clary Sage France from The Perfumery. And the Bulgarian from Liberty is pretty good as well.
It sounds like you are after a large dosage of linalyl acetate. You could always spike these lackluster Clary's with extra Linalyl Acetate...???
