Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “We are very excited to introduce this new Zanthoxylum CO2 extract which aromatically is a far better proposition when compared with the essential oil. Bursting with citrussy and fruity notes as soon as you uncap the bottle, this is a fun and vibrant material, and not in a childish manner either. The fruity character is well balanced with the bitter aromatic dark citrus peel essence, in fact imagine drinking Italian chinotto, thirst quenching, bitter-sweet and with that gorgeous “dark” citrus peel note throughout. In the background of the citrus notes, a classic zanthoxylum melody completes the picture with its sweet, waxy, lychee and delightfully bright Far East fruit aroma.
This Zanthoxylum CO2 extract is a top note that unfortunately cannot boast a long duration on skin and yet it makes a brilliant head note injecting fun, juiciness – minus the annoying cloyingness of some juicy smelling aroma chemicals – and a wonderful bittersweet tartness. Alcohol soluble but only partially oil soluble.”

It’s unbelievable how essential oil and CO2 are different from one another. While the EO begins with an almost offensive (apple vinegar-citrus mix) but charmingly peppered acidity and this one starts with a full-blown-in-your-face slight bergamot-like citrus zest-ness with delicate sour lemon undernotes. It’s quite possible to get lost in all the exotic fruit nuances captured in the bottle of this material. For a brief moment there was even an apricot passing by. When the EO starts to mellow down to its calming embrace of waxy berried, but still a bit acidic middle, the CO2 still punches hard with its zestines that now heads more in the direction of a luscious blood orange. I was hooked when I read the description of the EO, I confess. Now I am glad that I have them both. It’s interesting to compare, they are like two siblings of opposite characters.

This is a very special fragrance.There is a lot of citrus smell in it, but also a trace of an oily scent. Furthermore it reminds of the smell of a Sitca fir.

A seriously under-appreciated scent. Zanthoxylum CO2 reminds me of orange-peel marmalade and Korean Citron tea. It has a sour quality at first that makes you think this would not play nice with other oils, but it can add richness to lemon, lime, orange blossom, and ginger. It adds an edge to other gourmands as well, especially vanilla and cacao.
