GREEN

Type
Reproduction accord

Tea, aromatic, green, fresh.

A slightly sweet-scented note, green tea evokes a fresh, aromatic and green fragrant trail. It is both refreshing and deeply herbaceous. It is lighter than the black tea note, which emits smokier, woodier dimensions.

Production

A member of the camellia family, the botanical name for green tea is camellia sinensis. It flourishes in warm, damp parts of the world, including Sri Lanka, China, India, Kenya, the United States and Argentina. While it is possible to obtain green tea extract through distillation, the popular green tea note is most commonly recreated synthetically from other essences and molecules.

During a visit to the tea specialist: Mariage Frères, the attention of perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena is caught by a note of Darjeeling: Castleton. Placed at the heart of this fragrance, the green tea accord, clear and refreshing, combines citrus and floral notes. This success opens up an infinite number of variations around tea, and marks the beginning of androgynous fragrances.

History

Our adoration for tea leaves is thought to date as far back as five millennia. As the legend goes, an ancient emperor, living in what is now modern day China, discovered tea by accident. Emperor Shen Nong was privy to boiling his own water, and one day, managed to doze off during the process when a few leaves fell into the water from a nearby bush. Upon waking, the well-rested emperor was delighted by his fortuitous creation and henceforth decided to grow gardens filled with all sorts of tea trees. Thus, the world’s second most consumed beverage was born. Nowadays, about 1,200 billion cups of tea are brewed every year (or 36,000 cups every second).
Once picked, tea leaves are rapidly heated to high temperatures to destroy enzymes and thus prevent fermentation before being dried and rolled several times. The Chinese method uses copper pans on fire, while the Japanese method uses steam drying. Peoples across Asia have recognized and reaped the benefits of tea leaves for millennia. Tea leaves are known to protect heart health, boost energy, aid in weight loss, support mental health, regulate blood sugar and aid digestion.
