Aroma & Flavor
The pepper-like notes in this complex essential oil have similarities to culinary herbs and spices as well as nutmeg and myrtle. Cascarilla is often used at low levels in commercial perfumery due to its biting top note yet, powerful diffusion over time. However, in niche perfumery, where overdosing has been a common trend, Cascarilla can be a great addition in tabac, orientals and fragrances with powerful pimento, leather, and pepper notes. The flavor profile of this oil is spicy and bitter, aiding to its common use in tonics and bitters.
