Making orange blossom perfumes
Flowering under the Mediterranean sun
Contrary to what one might think, the orange flower does not come from the orange tree, but from the sour orange tree. This tree of the Rutaceae family can live up to 600 years! The white flowers offered by the orange tree have been appreciated since ancient times and were used to decorate bridal crowns. Gradually, cultivation spread to the Mediterranean basin. To bloom, the flowers of the bigaradier need bright sunshine all year round as well as a semi-arid climate, which makes Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt the world's leading producers.
From the flowers of the bigaradier tree to the orange blossom perfume
Also known as Neroli, in honour of the princess of Nerola who used to perfume her bath with this essence, the orange blossom is delicate. Once spring is well established on the Mediterranean, the flowers are hand-picked. This makes these orange blossom perfumes and fragrances luxurious products and justifies their high price. The freshly harvested flowers release a sweet scent with fresh, green olfactory notes. Depending on the product and the desired elixir, the flowers undergo a different treatment before being delivered to the perfume houses. They are thus :
- - distilled with steam to obtain essential oil;
- extracted with volatile solvents to obtain eau de parfum or orange flower absolute.
After this stage, the flowers release a strong odour. Did you know that one thousand flowers are needed to obtain one litre of essential oil of Neroli?
Each perfume house then appropriates the little white flower to create its own scent.
