Mandarino di Sicilia by Perris Monte Carlo at Indigo
A little background: mandarins, a slightly drier and more bitter citrus fruit, are found and grown in Southern Italy. Mandarin selection is dependant on the quality of fruit, the moment of harvest and the extraction process. The different qualities of essential oil have triggered interest in the creation of a fragrance that represents this fruit in its entirety. Here, younger green, less ripe mandarins are used for their fresh and green notes.
MANDARINO DI SICILIA
Mandarino Di Sicilia has three unique fractions of essential oils; first from the green mandarin, a delicate and volatile oil that becomes heavier in the second transition and the third essential oil rounds off to a yellow mandarin.
Mandarino Di Sicilia's fragrance features different layers of olfactory notes stemmed from the flower, notes such as petigrain and neroli, to accords of geranium and the ripeness of amber. The sillage will envelop sunny days with rays of sunshine beaming down in the middle of an orange tangerine field dancing with the fresh fruit aroma.
