Blood orange is a variety of orange that contains anthocyanin, a pigment common in many types of fruit but rarely found in citrus fruit, giving its flesh its reddish color. It is a sweet and tasty fruit and is particularly popular in Italy. Blood orange essence gives off fresh, energizing tones.
The ‘Pepper Tree’ bears clusters of berries that are used as spice and known as ‘Pink Pepper’ or ‘Brazil Pepper’. Native to South America (Brazil), this tree is now grown on Reunion Island. Red in color and the size of a pepper corn, its berries grow in clusters and emit an intense spicy fragrance. Pink Pepper extract is obtained by using a CO2 extraction technique, which allows the peppercorn to retain its full aroma.
The Tahitian Tiare, which is a small shrub that grows in tropical climates, has snowy white flowers with a sweet and heady fragrance, wavering between Tuberose and Jasmine. Concrete and absolute, with an exotic fragrance and sun-kissed notes, are then obtained by extraction using volatile solvents. The Tiare flower is emblematic of French Polynesia and a sacred symbol of welcome and femininity. Tiare flowers are macerated in Copra Oil in order to produce the famous Monoi of Tahiti.
