Velvet Curaçao

Curacao Peel Oil which is generally offered under the above name is the hand pressed oil from the peel of green bitter oranges. The green peels are also dried and sold to botanical and pharmaceutical houses under the name of Jacmel or Jacmal orange peels. These peels are produced in the West Indies, particularly in Jamaica where also the ordinary bitter orange oil is produced. The true Curacao peel is derived from a variety of the bitter orange tree, the varietas curassaviensis. This tree is cultivated in the tiny island of Curacao, off the north coast of South America. The island is part of the Dutch West Indies. The true Curacao peel is slightly smaller than the jacmal peel and the Curacao peel is much stronger in aroma. It is doubtful, however, if any essential oil at all is produced from the true Curacao peel. The larger part of the production of Curacao and Jacmal peels are shipped to Europe and the U.S.A. for preparation of tinctures and flavor extracts. These are used in flavor compositions for liqueurs of the Curacao type, Triple Sec and Grand Marnier.

    CARISSA, BY PK PERFUMES (by Cassiano Silva – Perfumart)
    Carissa is a white flower of 5 petals and aroma very similar to jasmine and gardenia, with smooth white flower aspect and, sometimes, fruity nuance. Normally, it grows in the form of shrubs, but can also reach 10 meters of height and is protected by thorns. The fruits of Carissa tends to be dangerous, when green and, when ripe, can remember cranberries, but bigger. In some species, can also provide fruity taste reminiscent of apple or strawberry.
    And it was this delicacy behind the thorns, that Paul Kiler tried to reveal through this creation. The perfume is composed by notes of Carissa, green nuances, pure rose, tuberose and opopanax (sweet myrrh). Then, the floral aspect becomes stronger and notes of jasmine and orange blossoms appear. Finally, there is an intense blast of myrrh and Australian sandalwood, embraced by the softness of the musk and ambergris.
    The result is a fragrance that reveals strength and elegance, which makes me think in tones of white and pink and whose sensitivity is the main feature. After 1 hour of applied, I was surprised by an aroma that reminded me immediately, the smell of Lady-of-the-night (also called Night-blooming Cestrum), which is that flower that has the power to perfume an entire street.
    And while the fragrance evolved on the skin, my mind took me to a flower garden around a beautiful fountain, an ideal place to sit and read a good book.
    For me, Carissa is a floral able to invade into the soul.
