The Ginger Mint

  • September 2016

Citrus more than Ginger

Its fragrance is more reminiscent of citruses than ginger. Nonetheless, its name is derived from the golden glow emanating from its young leaves in full sunlight, which fades as the plant grows.


Green sensation

Bergamot aroma is the most prominent and enduring of all. You may discern floral and citrus hints, inclining to soapy notes. Resinous (β-pinene), smokey and woody notes mingle to produce the aroma of Ginger Mint, evoking distinct spices (nutmeg, cloves, licorice and anise, caraway, cocoa), even certain Mediterranean herbs (thyme, oregano).



Coriander, the alter ego of Ginger Mint:

Coriander combines particularly well with Ginger Mint to achieve an oh-so-fresh blend. The elusive citrus hints brought by Ginger Mint are strengthened by the freshness of the Coriander.
