The Albert Vieille company has announced the addition of a new quality of CO₂ extract to its pink peppercorn line.
The original Albert Vieille quality is extracted from precious peppercorns gathered on Réunion, Madagascar and Mauritius. Today, the naturals specialist at Givaudan introduces a new quality that combines pink peppercorns sourced from both the Indian Ocean and Brazil. This product is born of a collaboration between the Albert Vieille teams and the perfumers at Givaudan.
With this release, Albert Vieille meets the challenge of offering clients a distinctive, traceable product that remains price competitive.
For Albert Vieille, strengthening and securing the resources of the pink peppercorn supply chains in the Indian Ocean and Brazil is a top priority, and the supply’s sustainability is safeguarded by long-term collaborations with local partners. These partnerships commit both parties to a specified quantity and quality while guaranteeing a fair price. The sourcing areas are also chosen in keeping with Albert Vieille’s sustainable commitments and established best practices in peppercorn harvesting.
Pink peppercorn CO₂ extract is a prized ingredient in fine perfumery, adding character to fragrance compositions. Supercritical CO₂ extraction is a process that gives an extract sparkle and freshness, with notes that are airy, spicy and lemony. This new quality made with pink peppercorns from the Indian Ocean and Brazil preserves this fresh, sparkling, peppery character in the top note, while contributing dry, woody notes of cedar.
