Collection: Citrus

A fragrance belongs to the citrus family when the citrus facet is presented in large quantities in the fragrance, thus defining the main accord, or "theme" of the fragrance.

The difficulty for the perfumer to work with citrus notes is to give them tenacity in a composition or a perfume. Working with citrus fruits notes for candles is even more difficult.

Citrus perfumes, also known as hesperidates, are characterised by the fresh and lively notes of citrus fruits such as lemon, lime, orange, bergamot and grapefruit. These fragrances are usually created by extracting the essential oil from the peel, leaves and flowers of plants. Citrus notes are light and volatile, so they are often combined with notes from other olfactory families to bring out all their facets.
