In 2015, at our production site nestled in the vast fields surrounding the village of Almaden de la Plata, Spain, cistus labdanum production continues to gain momentum. The harvest began sooner this year than last year because of the hot weather this past spring. As early as June, the cistus plants were already heavily laden with gum to withstand the scorching heat of the sun’s rays.

The processing stage that turns Turkish rose concrete into absolute is in full swing at our production units. We plan to double our quantities in 2015, despite reduced harvests in Turkey. As a late frost in April damaged over 20% of buds in the flower fields of the Isparta region, the available quantities of Rosa damascena absolute are in decline this year.

neroli

The bitter orange or Seville orange is a small tree or shrub with glossy green leaves. It bears white blossoms in spring, each with five fleshy petals. Clustered in the axils of the leaves, the blooms contain small glands of highly fragrant essences. The orange blossoms open in spring between March and April, depending on the region and year. At daybreak, once the dew has formed, the buds are carefully hand-picked or gathered on a sheet spread at the base of the tree.

haitian vetiver

Haiti produces 50% of the world's vetiver resources and the plant represents the country's principal agricultural export. Nevertheless, the supply chain has many problems that place the raw material at risk: insufficient remuneration for farmers, a speculative market, inconsistent yields, poor harvesting practices causing soil erosion, etc. Albert Vieille chose to become involved in the supply chain by supporting our Haitian partner in its traceability process, improving the supply chain's quality and sustainability so as to preserve an essential raw material.

roman chamomille

Roman chamomile or Chamaemelum nobile, also known simply as chamomile or English chamomile, is an herbaceous plant with small, delicate, aromatic flowers resembling daisies. The word "chamomile," from the Greekchamaimelon, means "dwarf apple" or "ground apple," referring to the Roman variety's fruity aroma of overripe apple.Indeed, a carpet of blooming chamomile releases the delicious scent of apple when tread upon. After a two-year growing period, the flowers and twigs are harvested in the summer months as the blooms open, in June-July in Italy and in July-August in France. The flower heads are dried and then distilled for eight hours to obtain the essential oil, which captures both their fragrance and virtues.

balsam peru

Albert Vieille has contracted with a Salvadoran company to ensure the Balsam Peru supply chain's long-term survival, to protect and promote this raw material. Why such a commitment? The Balsam of Peru industry is now threatened by balsam tree deforestation in favor of coffee crops, and the disinterest of local disadvantaged populations preferring to grow food crops. Our intention is to provide better remuneration to local communities to make collecting the resin more attractive.

styrax tonkinensis

Styrax, a precious resin from the tropical forests of Honduras, is an endangered aromatic raw material. Day after day, deforestation reduces its natural environment and local populations are losing interest in harvesting it, as it is an unprofitable activity. In order to preserve this natural resource and traditional savoir-faire, Albert Vieille, in partnership with a salvadorian company, is developing a sustainable styrax supply chain in Honduras.
