This Puts the “fruit” in Tutti Fruitti
Tutti Fruitti gets its signature scent from three different ingredients. Orange Essence has an intense, fresh citrus scent that helps energize your mind while simultaneously instilling a sense of calm and relief. Because the essence is distilled from the juice itself as opposed to the peel, Orange Essence differs from Sweet Orange with its strong, effervescent, juicy top note, but the same therapeutic benefits we know and love. The Orange Terpenes (an isolate of Orange Essential Oil) help expand on the fruity orange aroma and give it even more complexity. Pink Grapefruit also lends its bright, sparkly citrus aroma to this blend.
While you might find it more difficult to detect the scents of Tutti Fruitti’s non-citrus ingredients, they are still integral components that really make this blend pop! Geranium, Spearmint, Anise, Buchu, and Basil all offer their subtle herbal and floral notes. The result is a delightfully fruity and complex blend for spring.
