The sweet and delicate smell of orange flower water is unmistakable for anyone who knows it. Just a few drops of this essential water add flavor to fruit salads, warm milk or even a cup of hot water (the latter is called "white coffee" in the Middle East). Orange flower water is also used in various French pastry recipes. Théodule Noirot was a dedicated herbalist who started making plant extracts for liquors at the end of the 19th century. Noirot has remained faithful to traditional recipes and is praised for its flower waters and its liquors.
