A special, menthone-rich quality of Egyptian peppermint dominates this streamlined re-reading of the fougère family. Pepper and rose geranium assert the note’s explosive, masculine character while cèdre cœur (a fractioned distillation of cedar wood essential oil) brings a clean, powdery feel. Black tobacco absolute and Tolu resinoid add smoky oriental inflections to the ambroxan and white musk base.
Note de voyage : Mentha piperita
Peppermint and the embalming ritual: an unknown story. The mummies of Pharaonic Egypt are often accompanied by flowers in their final resting place. A garland made of peppermint (Mentha piperita) was found in 1884 in a tomb. Writings point to several other species of mint, also used in ancient Egyptian funeral techniques, like myrrh, cinnamon and vegetable oils. Several other species of mint have been reported.Franz Eugen Köhler, Köhler’s Medizinal-Pflanzen – 1897
