Accord No. 05: White Pepper is AER's version of a classic fougère done with a modern edge. A dry, spicy core of white Pepper and bright elemi blended with opulent Corsican immortelle battles a Tangerine and blue chamomile entry. Tobacco leaf and galbanum emphasise the perfume’s crispy dry personality. The scent is underlined by a French oak moss – the classic fougère underpinning. Crisp, exciting and full of surprises.
White pepper starts as a black peppercorn, but the outer skin is removed before sun-drying. This perfume contains three different peppers: a white and a black pepper grown in Madagascar; and Peruvian pink peppercorn (which is not a true pepper). All three peppers are also commonly used for cooking.
