01 Home Fragrance Diffuser Basil, Fig Leaf and Mint
A Mediterranean village warmed by the sun’s rays, where a pasta dish made with green pesto awaits. We all picture something similar to this idyllic image whenever we hear the name of this aromatic herb: basil. It has a fresh, green, herbal, spicy, aniseed aroma and is often used in colognes and citrus notes. Basil essential oil is produced in the south of France or in Madagascar by distilling the leaves and stems. Basil is a mystical plant! In India, every Vishnuite household has a jar of basil in its window to bring luck, and in some regions of Africa, it is used to ward off bad luck.
Why does Bon Parfumeur love fig leaf so much?:
It reminds them of vacations. Who hasn’t crumpled a fresh g leaf between their fingers and then brought its scent to their nose? A true delight! The fruit of the fig doesn’t yield an essential oil. The leaves are often used by perfumers for their green and woody notes with potent accents of fig, which give the composition a very natural and authentic effect.
How is mint used in perfumery?
Mint has many beneficial properties and has always been widely appreciated and used. Greek women and athletes would rub their arms with mint essences to scent themselves with it. Today, mint is very on-trend and adds great power and an invigorating freshness. It’s also a reassuring smell that reminds us of childhood memories, pinched pieces of chlorophyll chewing gum, or the smell of the older kids’ toothpaste. Want to hear a quick story? In Greek mythology, Hades, the god of the underworld, fell in love with the naiad Minthe. His jealous wife Proserpina turned her into a plant.
- To improve the diffusion regularly turn the sticks. It is up to you to choose the number of sticks you wish to use. The more sticks you use, the stronger and faster the diffusion.
- Once finished, don’t throw it away! The glass of the candles and diffuser asks is recyclable. Bottles will become pretty vases for flowers. A great way to give a second life to these products.
