Flavour of the Week - Passion Flower

Also known as Passiflora, and often cultivated for their deliciously tasty fruits, or for the flower itself, Passiflora is also home to several very fragrant flowers.

It is thought that they originate from South or Central America, with many, nowdays, being cultivated in more tropical countries.

Some would argue that a true Passionflower Absolute for use in perfumes has not yet been achieved, however based on the sheer number of species it is defintetly possisble.

Flavour / Scent - Mild, sweet, light fragrant.
