World's best harvests

I only processed the best harvests from all over the world in LUCE DI SEGANTINI. Here are some examples with detailed descriptions for you:

Iris pallida
Family: Iridaceae
Origin: Italien
Heart fragrance: Mostly water vapor distillation from the roots, which were previously stored for three years (fragrance formation by fermentation)
Special feature:
The Romans and the Greeks valued Iris as a fragrance. Iris is used as a fixative in noble perfumes. Iris, named after the goddess of the rainbow, is one of the most precious fragrances in the world. Deeply hidden in Mother Earth, this light-bearing essence is extracted from the roots of Iris pallida, a species of sword lily. A violet-like scent with a soft, flowery undertone, powdery, radiant.
The Romans and the Greeks valued Iris as a fragrance.

On the Schafberg / Pontresina in Switzerland

For the development of the fragrance LUCE DI SEGANTINI, it was important for me to go to the Schafberg north of Pontresina in Engadin / Switzerland. The Segantini hut is situated at 2731 meters above sea level, where the painter often lingered and painted on his easel. A little off the hut, on July 12, 2015, I picked a few yarrow blossoms and set them as a mother tincture. This mother tincture creates the essence of Schafberg and it flows in to the perfume flask of LUCE Di SEGANTINI.

Other ingredients of LUCE DI SEGANTINI

Viola odorata
Family: Violaceae
Heart fragrance: Hexane extraction of green leaves
Origin: Ägypten
Special feature:
Violets and iris are a source of confusion when it comes to "typical violet". The typical violet perfume is replaced today in perfumes and cosmetics by synthetic Jonone; As is the case with the known violet pastilles. Even for the romantic violet perfumes of the 19th century - when there were no synthetic odors - the precious "Iris essence" was used as a violet-like fragrance. Obtaining an iris essence is, however, very costly. The result, however, is worth every effort, so radiantly beautiful and truly fragrant after delicate violets.
However, in LDS, the perfume of the true violet also flows from the heart shaped leaves of the Viola Odonata with its heavy, earthy-grass-green smells. The magic of the transformation comes only when this intensive fragrance is diluted, and the mood-brightening fine light effect, is allowed to unfold.

Jasminum grandiflorum
Family: Oleaceae
Heart fragrance: Solvent extraction with hexane, or further with ethyl alcohol
Origin: Egypt
Special feature:
Jasmine is called "moonlight in the grove" in India. The moonlight-colored flowers smell, especially in the night, so charming, so lavish. From 2 o'clock in the morning the tender jasmine flowers are carefully selected by experienced dexterous women pickers, who harvest the blossoms. For one kg of jasmine scent one needs the unimaginable quantity of 8 million flowers. This precious natural jasmine costs over 30,000 euros, while the synthetic jasmine is traded with a few euros. The complexity, the beauty and the sensual beguiling essence of the real jasmine can never be achieved from a synthetic source. From the collected jasmine blossoms one obtains a sensation which makes us optimistic, and gives us an indescribable feminine feel from the lush jasmine scent.

Pinus cembra
Family: Pinaceae
Head cardiac perfume: Water vapor distillation of the crushed branches and branches with needles
Origin: Austria, Switzerland
Special feature:
The Arve is considered the queen of the Alps and grows most slowly among all conifers. The Styrian research company "Joanneum Research" has proven that sleeping in a bed of arven wood reduces the heart rate and results in a savings of 3,500 heart attacks per day.
Knotted, solitary arvens in the middle of the battle zone on the edge of the forest are the epitome of weather trees. It grows in the high Alps up to the tree line of 2700 meters. As a pioneer plant, it colonizes and consolidates rockfalls. The pine is also a light-hungry tree, it loves the free heights. In the valley, in a closed dark forest, she would not survive. Arven can become ancient. Thus they found their way into the fairy tales and legends of our ancestors, are a symbol of longevity, endurance, strength and protection. The essential oils smell powerful, fresh and pure, capturing the special alpine landscape in its fragrance.

Achillea millefolium
Family: Asteraceae
Heart fragrance: Water vapor distillation of dried flowering flowers and cabbage
Country of origin: Hungary
Special feature:
The color of yarrow oil is blue because of the high content of chamazulen. The botanical name Achillea derives from the Greek hero Achilles, who according to the legend was supposed to have treated his wounds with the help of this plant. In plants bearing animal names within them, their meaning is already indicated. Just like in deer or bear herbs. So what does the yarrow have to do with sheep? People have observed animals, learned from them. It was probably shepherds who had observed that sick sheep eat a great deal of yarrow and thereby heal themselves. The second part of the word - the sheaf - comes from the Old High German garwe = health care worker. The scent of the yarrow is highly diluted and gives stability and endurance in changing situations.

Cistus ladanifer
Family: Cistaceae
Heart fragrance: Water vapor distillation of the flowering branches and leaves
Origin: Portugal, Crete
Special feature:
The nickname ladaniferus, given by Linné, means "hard," because the resin which separates the cistuses was called "Ladan" (= sticky herb) by the Syrians and Phoenicians. The labdanum was already appreciated in ancient times as an aromatic substance.
Whole land can be impregnated in the shimmering, hot air of the scent of the sticky leaves of the bony and harsh-looking cistus shrub. The flowers, on the other hand, appear extremely delicate, even crumpled. Sheep and goats roam the barren landscape. At the Schaffel the resin lumps remain, which are then collected from the fur. A gold-colored essential oil is obtained from the resin. This archaic Cistrosenduftnote, which carries something sweet, earthy in itself, already had King David 3000 years ago in his nose.
