Chinotto Gourmand Italian niche fragrance
Chinotto Gourmand Eau de Parfum is joyful and energizing.
Over 300 years ago, the Chinotto plant was brought to Savona from China by a Savonese sailor. The unique climate created by the proximity of the mountains to the sea made Savona the perfect environment for the Chinotto plant to thrive, and this charming Italian town became its new home. The bitter citrus of the plant came to be highly regarded among navigators, who believed it was an amulet that protected them from diseases and danger on the high seas.
The Chinotto plant’s flowers are abundant and delicately scented, and the leave and fruit peel contain oils often used in fine perfumery and cosmetics. The citrus is quite bitter when freshly picked but can be transformed into delicious candied delicacies and fragrances when properly processed.
