What does pomegranate perfume smell like?
Pomegranate Punica granatum is the fruit of a shrub native to the Middle East area - Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, and the Himalayas in northern India - grown and naturalized across the Mediterranean region and the Caucasus since ancient times. However, it has also been produced commercially in California and other areas with similar climates. The fruit of the pomegranate is a berry. It is the size of an orange with a rounded hexagonal shape, thick reddish skin, and around 600 seeds. Each seed is surrounded by a bag filled with juice, which is squeezed during processing. The name pomegranate derives from the Latin pomum apple and granatus seeded. The pomegranate is mainly used to produce juice known for its antioxidant properties. Depending on the variety, it can be extraordinarily sour or pleasantly tart with some sweetness. Pomegranate juice is typically reduced to a form of molasses in Middle Eastern countries. It is also used to produce grenadine, an ingredient for a mixture of flavors and coloring. The pomegranate scent is subtle, distinct, wrapping the powdery green scent of its skin around the sweet-tangy, winey aroma of the seeds.
