Plant of the month – June: pinkpeppercorn

Native to Peru, schinus molle has spread to temperate regions of America, from Bolivia to northern Argentina. The fruits, commonly called berries, are actually drupes (fruits whose seed is contained in a hard pit surrounded by a fleshy part).

The Pink peppercorn essential oil is recognized by its spicy, resinous notes, but also by its fruity and sweet facets. Its note is carefully constructed, which explains its current popularity. Its first uses in perfumery date back to the mid-90s, at this moment it often integrates floral bouquets. It has gradually emerged in the landscape of perfumery to become today a staple of the palette of the perfumer along with the rose or musk. It is mainly used around woody notes, violet and rose in a perfect harmony.
