Cardamom is an herbaceous plant native to India and Sri Lanka, nowadays cultivated in Guatemala, Ceylon and Central America. It produces a fruit in the shape of a green capsule containing small seeds. Used since ancient times by the Greeks and Romans, it has survived through the ages thanks to its medicinal virtues and fine taste. In perfumery, the seeds are dried and then steam-distilled. This operation enables to obtain an essential oil of cardamom. Its fragrance is spicy yet fresh and elegant. We distinguish powerful aromatic notes with camphor and resinous undertones. The refined and spicy smell of cardamom can be found in the incenses agité.
