Discover The Good cape species Tunisia

Far from Tunisia's major tourist routes, the Cap Bon peninsula is a regular host to big names in the perfume business in search of sour-orange-tree flowers. Once distilled, the flowers produce the neroli essence, an ingredient of top-notch perfumes such as Guerlain. Of the orange family, the sour orange tree is cloaked in spring by white flowers, of which over 1,000 tonnes are harvested per year to produce barely 1,000 litres of neroli essence. This accounts scarcity of such high-brow perfumes and goes some way to justifying the high cost.
