Although there is no certain information, it seems that this simple aphrodisiac blend was imported from French Polynesia in 1880 when King Pomare V agreed to cede the kingdom of Thaiti to France and was granted its protection. On that occasion, Pomare V, among other things, gave French Prime Minister Jules Ferry the original recipe for this passionate mixture used by Polynesians in courtship rituals. Brought home by Ferry, La Perdición was so successful that many French people forgot its origin and considered it a French spice blend. This melange has a warm and intense aroma, mainly due to cinnamon and cloves, and today, in French cuisine, it is used to flavour soups, ragouts, sausages and pâtés and is also excellent with pork, poultry and mushrooms. It also perfumes spiced sweet breads, puddings, dry biscuits or the custard used in fruit tarts.
