Café Tuberosa
[ tuberose from India ]

Its name refers to its root system and has nothing to do  with rose. Polianthes Tuberosa is a small white flower, the  same class as jasmine or orange blossom. In India, they  gave it a nickname, “Rajanighanda” which means  “fragance of the night”.

Considered at the same time carnal and animalic, creamy  and smooth, this tiny little flower is harvested in the south  of France but also in India.

Mythical ingredient, the tuberose has been used in  perfume since the 18th century. In Grasse they used to  extract the absolu with a particular extraction process, the  “enfleurage” which consists in enrobing flowers in fat to  trap the olfactive molecules. Its smell is quite floral but  also very animalic and vegetal.

Café Tuberosa
[ bergamot from Calabria ]

Citrus Bergamia, the Bergamot Orange is a fragrant fruit,  with the size of an orange a nd a yellow color similar to a  lemon. It is inedible, but extracts are used for scent food,  perfume and cosmetics.

The word comes from the word bergamotta in Italian,  originating from Bergamo, a town in Italy.

Citrus bergamia is a small tree that blossoms during the  winter. The fruit is not edible. The juice tastes less sour  than lemon, but more bitter than grapefruit.

Its production is limited to the Ionan Sea coastal areas of  the province of Reggio di Calabra where the temperature  is favorable.

[ coffee expresso accord ]

Coffee is native from tropical Africa, particularly Ethiopia  and Sudan. Today, it is cultivated in more than 70  countries. Coffee seeds were first roasted in Arabia  around the 15th century. The na me “coffee ” is derived from  the Ottoman turkish “khave” a nd “qahwah” in Arabic.  Coffee is today considered as the world’s most valuable  crop.

Coffee species are mainly robusta or arabic a but derived  from these are more than 60 varieties. In perfume, we use  more and more the coffee smell to recreate a warm,  delicious and quite addictive fragrance.

Unfortunately, coffee essential oil is forbidden in perfume  as it provokes cancer. Perfumers use their raw materials  palette to recreate a gourmand and sweet coffee scent.
