NEZ + the naturals notebook 

The golden apples of the Hesperides
Born from the crossing of the bitter orange tree with the citron tree, the lemon tree thrives in hot, sunny climates, from Argentina to the Mediterranean Basin. Its tart, sparkling, zesty, juicy essence, obtained by cold-pressing the peel, is essential to eaux de cologne, but it also brings an unrivaled freshness to many masculine and feminine fragrances. Discover the many facets of this sun-gorged fruit by journeying through botany, art, gastronomy, history, agriculture and chemistry without overlooking, of course, perfume and perfumers.
