In this theme

Reawaken your zest for life this spring as we bring you the best of citrus freshness, perfect for the joyful sunny days. Citrus notes in perfumery have long been associated with vibrancy and liveliness, the inspiration for the chosen scents in this pack. From zesty and juicy to clean and tart, this collection of refreshing fragrances showcases the variety of materials and extraction techniques.

Citrus oils are commonly extracted through cold pressing or sponge extraction techniques. Cold pressing involves mechanically crushing the outer layer of the fruit and collecting the essential oil that is released. Sponge extraction, on the other hand, involves soaking a sponge in the juice and rind, which is then wrung out to extract the oil. Both methods are used to extract oils from a variety of citrus fruits, including oranges, lemons, and grapefruits. The tricky nature and instability of citrus molecules means perfumers face a challenge in prolonging their longevity. To overcome this, they often incorporate fresh materials such as herbs, woods, and synthetics into the citric composition.

We believe the sizzling and stylish citrus scents in this edit are the smell of happiness, bursting with notes of revitalising grapefruit, tangy lime, juicy mandarin, sparkling bergamot and exotic yuzu.
