NEROLI, TAGETES AND SANDALWOOD PERFUME YOUR SUMMER

HOW MANY TIMES DO WE READ THE INGREDIENTS OF A CREAM OR PERFUME WITHOUT PAYING ATTENTION, WITHOUT ASKING OURSELVES THE MEANING OF WHAT WE ARE WEARING? LET'S TAKE SOME TIME TO GET TO KNOW BRIEFLY SOME OF THE MAGICAL ALCHEMIES WHICH GIVE OFF NATURE’S GIFT THAT CAN BE FOUND IN MANY OF OUR FAVORITE FRAGRANCES.

FOR EXAMPLE NEROLI, OR ORANGE FLOWER, HAS ANCIENT CHINESE ORIGINS AND HAS BEEN USED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN COSMETICS AND MEDICINE. STEAM DISTILLED BY FLOWERS, IT IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED IN PERFUMERY BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT IS OFTEN REPLACED BY SYNTHETIC MOLECULES, BECAUSE IT IS A VERY EXPENSIVE INGREDIENT. SUITABLE FOR ALL-TYPE SKIN CARE, ESPECIALLY THE MOST SENSITIVE AND DRY ONES, IT ALSO HAS A REMARKABLE ANTIDEPRESSANT EFFECT AND IT IS VERY USEFUL IN TIMES OF DISCOMFORT AND SADNESS.

TAGETES IS A BRIGHT ORANGE CLOVE COMING FROM MEXICO AND IT IS STILL PROFUSELY USED TODAY IN RELIGIOUS RITUALS, ESPECIALLY FUNERALS, TO GIVE THE SWEETEST WELCOME TO THE SPIRITS OF THE AFTERLIFE WHO RETURN TO GREET THE LIVING ONES. ITS INTENSE FRESH AND CITRUS SCENT MAKES IT THE PROTAGONIST OF COSMETIC PRODUCTS, ENRICHING THEM ALSO WITH ITS ANTISEPTIC AND INSECT-REPELLING PROPERTIES.

SANDALWOOD, ORIGINATING IN INDIA, IS A LARGELY USED WOOD, BOTH IN PERFUMERY AND AS A NATURAL REMEDY, OBTAINED FROM THE SANTALUM ALBUM. IN INDIA IT IS MAINLY USED TO PRODUCE INCENSE STICKS, BUT IT IS WIDELY USED AS ESSENTIAL OIL FOR ITS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, STRESS-RELIEF, APHRODISIAC PROPERTIES. IT GIVES TO ALL FRAGRANCES THAT WOODY AND WARM BASE NOTES THAT PERSIST ON OUR SKIN FOR A LONG TIME.
HAVE A VERY NICE AND PERFUMED REBIRTH!
