Cocoa is native to Central America. The Aztecs are the first to encounter cacao pods, learning their unique properties and introducing them to the world. It is said that Hernán Cortés, during his trip to Mexico City, discovered the importance of cocoa beans.
Cocoa comes from a perennial tree, which produces oblong fruits. Once ripe they take on a reddish hue and can contain up to 40 cocoa beans each.
Xocoati, extracted from cocoa beans, a bitter mixture melted with ground chili pepper and cardamom, creates a perfect elixir for the palate that was once called "delicacy of the gods". It was said that this Aztec drink gave the gods the strength of power and knowledge. For this reason Montezuma, the last of the Aztec kings, had such a sweet tooth that he drank up to 50 cups a day.
CACAO AZTEQUE is a fragrance that we cannot do without. COCOA ABSOLUTE is a rare and precious material that creates a rich and dense note, with a penetrating aroma that gives dependency. This exotic scent will stimulate your senses and bring spicy memories back to mind.
