The citron, a citrus fruit

The citron comes from the citron tree, a citrus-producing tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. This one takes its name from the cedar because of its thick and rough bark. In fact, the citron is an ancestor of the lemon. It is a large, oval and quirky fruit, sometimes slimy and up to 25 cm long. Likewise, this giant lemon can weigh up to 4 kg! Like its cousin, the citron has an acid pulp, sometimes green or yellow. However, unlike the latter, this one is not very juicy. This species related to the lemon tree is native to South Asia and more particularly to India. What is more, the citron was the first citrus fruit to spread to all Asian regions as well as to enter Europe, as early as the third century BC.Today, the citron is mainly present in France in the department of Corsica or in Languedoc Roussillon. In contrast, other countries are much larger global producers. This is notably the case of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Italy, China and South America. Indeed, the hot and dry climate of these regions turns out to be particularly favorable to this small fruit which is usually harvested between September and November. Finally, note that citron is a slow growing fruit. Its tree grows only from two to four year old plans and does not bear any fruit until it is three years old.other countries are much larger world producers.

The citron in our perfumes

The first perfume with the scent of citron was invented by Carlos Huber, a perfumer of Mexican origin who launched his own brand called Arquiste and accompanied by a collection of six fragrances including one based on citron. In addition, citron is very popular in perfumery for its zesty smell and marked acidity. Its citrus accents make it a favorite material for the top notes of fragrances. Thus, the citron brings them freshness and tone with a simple breath. Its essential oil is obtained by cold expression of its zest, a method very commonly used to extract the scent of citrus fruits. Overall, citron is reserved for fine perfumery. Its scent is also reminiscent of colognes. Moreover, the citron appeared in 1920 in theessential Eau de Cologne Eau de Fleurs de Citron de Guerlain.

In addition to this ancestral juice, citron also appears in men's fragrances such as Armani Code, Chrome Sport by Azzaro or Dior Homme Sport, as well as in feminine nectars such as Downtown by Calvin Klein, Chance Eau Fraiche by Chanel or Byzantium of Rochas.
