What does the word peach mean?
The peach's scientific name is "Prunus persica". It belongs to the Rosaceae family. Its name comes from the Latin "persica", meaning "from Persia", as it was thought to have originated in Persia. However, it actually originated in China and was introduced to Persia by the Romans.
In the beginning...
The peach has a long history in perfumery. The Greeks and Romans were already using peaches to create perfumes. In the Middle Ages, the Arabs also contributed to the use of peaches in perfumery to create fruity, sweet fragrances. Today, peach is still a common ingredient in women's fragrances. It is often combined with other fruity notes such as raspberry or cherry to create light, fresh fragrances. Peach-based fragrances can also be combined with floral notes such as jasmine or rose to create more sophisticated scents.
The peach originated in China, where it was first cultivated over 4,000 years ago. It was then introduced to Persia, then to Europe by the Romans. Over time, the peach has become a very popular fruit worldwide, cultivated in many regions: Asia, Europe and North America.
Peaches, the fruit of the peach tree (Prunus persica), are grown in many parts of the world. Peach cultivation requires a temperate to warm climate, with a sufficient cold period to allow good winter dormancy. Peach trees are generally planted in spring in well-drained soils rich in organic matter. Regular pruning is necessary to maintain a shape suitable for harvesting and to promote good air and light circulation. Protection against disease and pests is essential, with the use of biological control methods and phytosanitary products where necessary. Peaches are harvested when ripe, usually by hand, to preserve their flavor and quality.
Peach scent is created using accords rather than pure peach extracts, for several reasons. It depends on the availability of raw materials, as peach is a seasonal fruit and its harvest can be limited. In addition, by using accords, perfumers can precisely control the olfactory characteristics of the peach note. Nevertheless, it's important to note that the exact composition of a peach perfume can vary from brand to brand and perfumer to perfumer. Some perfumers may choose to use natural peach extracts, while others prefer to create a peach accord from both synthetic and natural ingredients.
Quality control: By using accords, perfumers can precisely control the quality and olfactory characteristics of the peach note. They can adjust proportions and ingredients to achieve the desired scent, while ensuring olfactory consistency and stability.
