Behind The Scent: Vetiver Bourbon: Vetiver is a tropical grass commonly cultivated for its strong and fast-growing roots, which can grow 3 to 4 meters deep. Not only is Vetiver highly tolerant to droughts, but it also helps protect against soil erosion. This Vetiver, however, can claim the honorific title Bourbon, because it's specially sourced from Madagascar (it's basically the perfume equivalent to the wine industry's Grand Cru designation). In Madagascar, the roots are distilled near the fields, conserving the aroma—as well as our carbon footprint—and the extraction is subsequently reworked and refined at our facilities in France to enhance that earthy, rosy scent you love. Prune Jungle Essence is a unique distillation of whole dried prune—woody pit and all. Our partners use a sophisticated technique (it involves a high-purity recyclable solvent), which allows for a seamless extraction. The result? An ozone-layer-friendly essence that's safe for you and the planet. Black Pepper Jungle Essence is a unique distillation of fully-ripened black peppercorns that have been dried out. Our partners use a sophisticated technique (it involves a high-purity recyclable solvent), which allows for a seamless extraction. The result? An ozone-layer-friendly essence that's safe for you and the planet.
