Home grown lemons! You cannot cultivate lemons in UK on such a scale that will be enough for perfume production. But Parterre (a perfume house based in Dorset) came up with an ingenious solution. They grow herbs that yield essential oils that smell very similar to citrus oils. Check out the citrus illusion of lemon thyme and bergamot mint in Run of the River.
Etrogs are huge lemons the size of a melon which are cultivated around the Mediterranean. We never see them in supermarkets as these citruses are mostly used for the production of essential oil and jam. However, we have a perfume that has a lot of shiny zesty etrogs in the formula and is even named after them, to celebrate their unique aroma.
Lemon in perfume doesn’t have to be the oils from the fruit; it can also refer to oil from leaves. This is the case of Hesperys, a soft woody aromatic perfume with some musky citrus on the edges.
A cologne formula from the archives of Versailles and quite likely a fragrance similr to a recipe used to prepare Louis XIV refreshing water.
Moving a few centuries forward. This citrus blend is inspired by Napoleon’s cologne recipe.
A fresh citrus mix, blended in Grasse in the old school French way from divinely good materials (the best you can get as a perfumer as the owner of Marie Jeanne is part of the Robertet company. This company has been a broker of the best natural perfume ingredients for a long long time).
