Minty and icy, the essential oil of Corn Mint offers itself to us with a beautiful intensity. Also guaranteeing a subtle aromatic composition, it continues its course towards more herbaceous and leafy areas. After a while, notes of undergrowth and tobacco remain, as much sunny as rural.

Mint is used as an accessory, i.e. in small quantities to give freshness to an often green, fruity and/or aromatic top note.
