The history of freesia is reported to go back 200 years to South-Africa where all species were discovered. It received its name from Dr. Christian P. Ecklon who named it after his friend a German botanist, Friedrich H. T. Freese. Freesias are native to the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. The fragrance of freesia is incomparable in that it contains a cheerful bouquet of peppery zing and floral freshness. Projected at the right intensity, a delicious aroma radiates for a long distance. High in linalool, a major component in all freesia varieties, it emits a refreshing, floral woody aroma with a subtle citrusy-terpenic note.
