A Note to Know: Yuzu
Summer is heating up, and we’re reaching for all scents, packing citrusy and fresh top notes to cool us down. Cue: Yuzu, the Japanese citron that brightens your fave fragrances. A citrus fruit of East Asian-origin, the Yuzu fruit is the size of a tangerine, yellow colored when ripe, and has a distinct tart flavor (it’s a cross between tangy grapefruit and sweet mandarin). The aroma is zingy, juicy and sublime – and perfect for summer.
