The advantages of the smell of watermelon
Watermelon has very few calories and also little sugar. This is why this makes it one of the best slimming allies for those who want to lose weight. Indeed, thanks to its high water content, watermelon helps in the elimination of the kidneys, as well as to dislodge the orange peel. Watermelon is a fruit rich in antioxidants, which protects us from free radicals and strengthens our immune system. In addition, watermelon contains lycopene which helps our body to fight against tired cells. Watermelon also contains vitamins, mainly A, B6, C as well as potassium which makes watermelon a great help against muscle cramps. Finally, watermelon is good for the heart because it keeps blood pressure at a normal rate, thus preventing cardiovascular disease.
Watermelon in perfumery
Although it may seem surprising to say the least, watermelon is used in perfumery, just like strawberries, currants, peaches or apples. Since it contains a lot of water, it is impossible to obtain an essential oil by extraction. The smell of watermelon is then synthetically reproduced in the laboratory. In perfumery, watermelon brings fruity, sweet, tangy, aquatic tones, but also crunchy. Watermelon can be found in fruity, citrus, aromatic or even floral compositions, as in Escada's Sunset Heat where watermelon is in the middle note alongside peach. We therefore discover watermelon in citrus compositions such as Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Noir,a fragrance for men where watermelon is positioned as a top note alongside basil. Also in Eternity for Men Summer 2007 by Calvin Klein, an aromatic-aquatic composition, where watermelon is in the top note next to coriander.
Very refreshing, watermelon is one of the star fruits of the summer. Watermelon, which has many health benefits, is also used in perfumery. Both fresh, tangy and sweet, watermelon offers essential tones for fruity, floral, citrus or aquatic compositions.
