Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is a southern fruit that thrives in warm regions with high temperatures and high humidity. Cnut comes from the Arecaceae family, ie, the palm family with a juicy, simple, and tightly closed fruit. The fragrant note of coconut is precious in the world of perfumes and fragrances. It almost instantly evokes memories of summer, endlessly long beaches with crystal clear water and white, pearly sand. The sweet, exotic, milky, and sweet note of cnut will open you up for hedonistic pleasures, just as you open up its stony exterior.
Fruit similar to a coconut existed in ancient times, before Christ. However, the cnut we know today is thought to originate in the tropics of South Africa, South America, and the Ganges delta. Coconut was first mentioned in the 15th century and has been one of the favorite fruit sweets around the world ever since. It quickly found its application in alternative medicine, cooking, cosmetics, and the perfume industry, where it still occupies a high position of popular fragrance notes.
Coconut meat – the inside of the fruit contains a large percentage of natural fats and can be dried or eaten fresh. The liquid from the fruit of this exotic fruit is used to prepare various drinks, creams, serums…
Coconut water is a favorite drink in tropical regions like Hawaii and the Caribbean, where you can find it fresh, canned, or bottled. The taste of cnut water varies depending on the place of origin.
In perfumes, coconut gives freshness, creamy and sweet tone, soft texture with a very exotic and juicy undertone. It is best combined with fragrant floral notes such as lily, jasmine, and violet. The combination with sweet orange blossom, neroli, cognac, chocolate, and vanilla is also exciting, where it provides a feeling of real and endless enjoyment. Many perfume lovers adore the combination of cnut and vanilla because, as they say, it can make you feel like enjoying the sun by the sea, even on the coldest winter day.
For the needs of perfume production, mainly essential coconut oil, the so-called cnut absolute, is used. Cnut absolute is one of the many natural perfume materials that are not widely used but are still used and priced in many perfume houses, although in practice, aldehyde variants such as C14 and C18 are often resorted to.
Whether you enjoy cnut through crunchy treats like Rafaello balls, rubbing your face trying to erase wrinkles and wrong choices, or drinking water in hopes of recovering from a stormy night as soon as possible, one thing is for sure… a world without coconut would be a sadder and more boring place.
