PEPPER: SPICE OF THE WEEK

 

 

An often surprising ingredient in many perfumes is the most popular spice in the world, pepper.

Yes, really!

 

There are three kinds of pepper used in perfumery, black, white and pink. Black pepper, steam distilled from the Piper Nigrum vining plant ‘s unripe fruit, contributes sparkle and zest to the notes. White pepper is steam distilled from the ripe fruit and reveals a slightly more musky, yet still perky side. Pink pepper comes from a completely different plant, the schinus molle, an evergreen tree native to Northern South America, and is actually not considered to be “real” pepper. It adds a more floral, somewhat sweet and rosy essence to perfumes. All are currently popular as perfume notes.
