Cedro di Diamante

The Diamante citron (Citrus medica var. vulgaris or cv. diamante − Italian: cedro di diamante) is a variety of citron named after the town of Diamante, located in the province of Cosenza, Calabria, on the south-western coast of Italy, which is its most known cultivation point.


Cedro di Diamante

The diamante citron fruit is the most celebrated citrus in Calabria by well known poets such as Byron and D’Annunzio.

The Cedro Di Diamante has a unique quality of being a non acidic citrus that is fresh and sweet often used for culinary purposes. At one point in the 80s almost abandoned by perfumers for its highly illicit content of furocumarins. With the innovative abstraction technology, the oil is now extracted without furocumarins and bans were lifted.

The prized citrus essence is infused with a mix of florals and spices, rounding off in the end with iris and musk to present effervescent layers of aroma. The brightness and freshness of the scent will linger and light up any of those around you with the sparkling zesty note.
