BUILDING A FRAGRANCE

Aromatic notes are usually combined of sage, rosemary, cumin, lavender and other plants which possess a very intensive grass-spicy scent.

FRESH NOTES

Aromatic (Fougère):
Aromatic notes are usually combined of sage, rosemary, cumin, lavender and other plants which possess a very intensive grass-spicy scent. They are often combined with citrusy and spicy notes. Aromatic compositions are typical of fragrances for men.

Citrus:
Citrus fragrances’ compositions are based on lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit or mandarin, with other citrusy, aromatic and tart notes for men and floral notes for women.
Water:
Compositions of this group include fresh accords of sea water, mountain breeze and clean linen and are mostly found as fragrances for men.
Green:
Green notes can add a sharper freshness to the floral bouquet. Compositions of this group include accentuated green notes of grass or leaves, besides aromatic components (lavender, rosemary, wood). Galbanum is a typical ingredient in this type of perfume as well as combinations that evoke freshly-cut grass.

FLORAL NOTES

Floral:
Floral notes are dominated by the scent of flowers. Single floral notes are capturing the fragrant spirit of a particular flower (soliflore), while floral bouquet combines fragrances of several flowers in a single and harmonious note. Floral notes may rely on fragrant essences of real flowers, but very often floral notes combine synthetic and natural material.
Soft Floral (Aldehyde):
Animal, powdery or slightly woody notes often enhance the floral bouquet. The top note is a marriage of aldehydes and hesperidia.

Floral Oriental:
Sweet, warm, powdery base typical of this group harmonizes with such flowers like gardenia, tuberose, tiare or with a spicy note of carnation
