Grown in India, Cambodia and Guatemala, cardamom is extracted by steam distillation. It harmonizes beautifully with black tea and essence of sandalwood, bringing freshness to Escale à Pondichéry.
Black tea is mainly grown in Asia and is differentiated from other families of tea due to the fermentation of its fresh leaves, giving them their dark color and bitter taste. The tea note adds spicy freshness to fragrances. Strong, delicate and addictive, tea is behind the freshness of Escale à Pondichéry.
The symbol of feminine softness, jasmine is one of the most commonly used flowers in perfumery. It is so delicate that it alone is a fragrance.
