A juniperberry is the female seed cone found on various species of junipers. When young, the berries are green and transform to a purple-black colour upon maturing.
Green berries are used to flavour gin, while the mature dark berries are used in European cuisine.
An essential oil is extracted from distilled berries and used in aromatherapy, perfumery and as an incense.
Crisp, citrus notes are electrified with pepper and juniperberry in Element by Hugo Boss, making it an everyday go-to fragrance with a twist.
The hot, spicy and balsamic aroma of the juniperberry is best when balanced against a burst of freshness.
