Arancia di Sicilia by Perris Monte Carlo at Indigo Perfumery
In perfumery, the essential oil of bitter orange has a higher value than that of more common, sweeter varieties. Sanguinella oranges (blood oranges) grown on the slopes of Mount Etna are characterised by intense red colour and a complex, aromatic sweetness. They produce an exceptional, outstanding oil.
Capua, the ultimate producer of essential citrus oils since 1880, harvests the oil with the help of two extraction methods. The pure essence of this sweet orange is brought to life.
First, the brown-coloured essential oil is extracted from the skin without coming into contact with the fruit juice.
The second extraction method takes place towards the end of the growing season. The whole fruit is put into a press. The oil from the peel is mixed with the juice. A special extractor is used to separate the juice from the slurry. At the end of the process, a centrifuge separates the oil from the juice. After this complex process, the two very different essential oils are used in our new masterpiece.
Arancia di Sicilia combines the invigorating, aromatic energy of blood orange with the sweet treasures of Sicily. Its heart contains an irresistible combination of almonds and cinnamon. The base notes reveal creamy musk and sensual amber, along with the unique aroma of coffee.
