Rich in traditional Mediterranean aroma the citrus-based essential oils of our compositions are extracted according to traditional and natural methods. In fact, they are produced by pressing peels and fruit leaves, the most vivid parts of the plants with intense aroma. That is the reason why we love citrus notes. They emanate natural energy!
Few people know that citrus fragrances are also called hesperide scents, a term in perfumery that is assigned to all fragrances made from citrus essential oils. This definition comes from the Greek mythology: according to its legends, gorgeous nymphs Hesperides guarded Hera’s magical garden full of brightly-coloured fruits. Today, just like in the legend, the hesperide fragrances are an ode for life and its sparkling side thanks to the natural vitality they emanate and vigour of their olfactive notes.
To produce citrus niche perfumes Officina delle Essenze uses Tangerine peel and Orange tree leaves, Calabrian Bergamot and Caribbean Lime.
