The berries are processed in supercritical CO2 extraction, a process that will bring a sparkling freshness to the CO2 extracts of pink berries.

CO2 extract is mainly used in fine perfumery, but also in cosmetics in smaller quantities.
In fine perfumery, CO2 extract of pink berries brings elegance, freshness and modernity.
Used in floral bouquets but also with woody, violet or rose notes, the pink peppercorns CO2 extract adds spice and freshness to perfumes. Its sparkling top note, its spicy freshness, will complement citrus, fruity but also aromatic notes.

Native to the Indian Ocean, the Schinus terebinthifolius is a small tree with a dense, drooping silhouette. The delicately scented flowers form hanging clusters that give the drupes or pink berries. It is the drupes that give off the spicy, peppery and woody scent characteristic of pink pepper.

Between May and July, collectors cut the branches with the most berries with a machete and collect them in bags. The berries are then separated from the branches: either by the “beating” technique, which consists of hitting the branches with a small paddle, or by hand, branch by branch. Then the berries are stored in wooden crates and then put in a drying oven to reduce their moisture content. They are then winnowed with a sieve to separate them from the last pieces of branches and leaves.
