ORTIR Apothecari perfume ingredients


At niche perfumery ORTIR Apothecari we are proud to grow and to distil the key ingredients that are blended into our luxury fragrances.

I may have taken the pic, but sadly cannot take credit for this juicy specimen (the lemon pips I proudly planted have yet to sprout, but then it is still only February and the days whilst certainly getting longer are only slightly so.)

Lemon essential oil, pale yellow in hue is cold-pressed from the rind of this marvellous yellow fruit (just dig your nails in and you get the idea).

Liquid sunshine.

Fresh, bright and uplifting, it is used primarily as a top note in perfumery so you can see why it grows best where the daylight hours are longest and perhaps for now that isn't here in West West Wales.
