Black currants were once called “the forbidden fruit,” as people falsely believed that the plant and its delicious berries spread a disease that killed pine trees. Well, turns out, that’s bogus, and now we get to freely indulge in the deliciousness of black currants without feeling like Eve and worrying that we’ll be booted from our own homes for enjoying them! With their earthy, acidic tannic structures, these berries are inherently less sweet than others, which is why they’re often made into jam, to bring out their natural sweetness. If you love mildly sweet, earthy, tannic scents, you’re going to love Black Currant.
Scent notes: Blackcurrant jam with undertones of black tea and rosewood
