Our sense of smell plays such a pivotal role in taste that it’s no wonder these delicious gourmet ingredients form such scrumptious fragrances. From the bright, zingy notes of citrus fragrances to the juicy, summery symphonies of fruit fragrances, all the way to the deep, rich harmonies of café scents, the Gourmet fragrance family has something for every appetite.
The Fresh fragrance family is bursting with nature, from the familiar leaf and plant notes of Green fragrances, to the revitalising aquatic notes of Water fragrances, Fresh fragrances are as light and clean as they are vibrant. With zesty, often citrus notes, Fresh fragrances are perfect for those who desire the familiar aroma of fresh cut grass, or the cool and relaxing scent of an ocean breeze. The Fresh fragrance family is divided into three categories: Water, Green and Natural, to help you find your perfect nature-inspired scent.
Typically the most popular fragrance family. Synonymous with femininity, floral fragrances have a fresh, familiar and often evocative quality. Although they can be single note, led by the scent of a particular flower, floral fragrances are often bouquets of various flowers, forming heady symphonies of floral notes. In order to discover your perfect floral scent, floral fragrances can be divided into three fragrance families. By adding powdery or vanilla scents, Soft Floral scents are produced, whilst the addition of fruits and spices produce Oriental Floral fragrances.
Warm, sensual, fiery fragrances make up the Spice and Wood fragrance family. Often heavy, the compositions that contribute to this family are wont to linger, their deep harmonies able to withstand the test of time. Citrus notes are often used to lighten these darker fragrances, contributing to their earthy relish. The addition of different notes can greatly retune the symphonies in this fragrance family, from mossy wood scents, to dry wood or oriental.
Zesty, animated notes of citrus oils, such as lime and bergamot, form a distinctive splash of fragrance, as their cool and refreshing symphony blend into an energetic and awakening accord. Crisp and sharp, citrus fragrances are reminiscent of freshly laundered sheets, their tangy notes working in harmony to form a light and clean scent.
Fruity fragrances combine various delicious fruits, such as watermelon, berries, passion fruit and peach to mix up fresh, juicy cocktails. Blended with floral tones, fruity fragrances emit a summery sweetness that’s difficult to resist. Unlike wood scents, there is nothing dark or deep about fruity fragrances, rather they are bright and bubbly, their sunny disposition always a welcome aroma.
Familiar notes of cinnamon, vanilla and coffee beans form a warm, comforting sweetness reminiscent of coffee shops and fresh pastries. Creamy and luxurious, café fragrances are rich and appetising, their sugary aroma a definite crowd-pleaser. These delicious scents are indulgent and enticing, like holding your favourite sweet treat up to your nose before allowing it to envelop your taste buds.
Green fragrances refer to those with notes of crushed leaves and freshly cut grass, from which we discover a distinct freshness. Popular green notes include plant leaves such as violet leaf and, most commonly, galbanum, an aromatic gum resin. Herbs often contribute to green symphonies, such as the aromatic notes of rosemary, thyme and basil, the likes of which may often characterise the fragrances they form. Whilst the concept of a ‘green’ fragrance may conjure a sporty, outdoors image, the potency of the galbanum resin often creates a more formal fragrance.
Marine and aquatic notes are used to invoke fresh, watery smells, such as those of the ocean or the wet air after a thunderstorm. The Water fragrance family specialises in soft, sea breeze fragrances, its notes often used to awaken floral, oriental and woody scents. The dewy notes of water fragrances are often reminiscent of rain, its symphonies light and icy. This fragrance family is perfect for those who seek a refreshing, enlivening aroma, far lighter than that of the Spice & Wood family.
Perfect for those who seek barely-there fragrances to freshen their home discreetly with neutral and subtle harmonies, offering a cool, airy scent. These non-intrusive fragrances offer a breath of fresh air, their delicate scents releasing a clean and refreshing aroma into your home. Think clean white sheets billowing in the breeze, and fresh, clean towels.
The marriage of classic floral notes such as rose, and powdery notes such as iris or vanilla, form Soft Floral fragrances. A diverse fragrance family, most Soft Floral fragrances contain Aldehydes, a scintillating fragrance found naturally in rose and citrus oils. Although Aldehydes have a sharp, metallic scent, when hushed by powdery notes, they produce a soft, flowery symphony, far lighter than that of the Oriental Floral accord.
Picture flourishing bouquets and spring blossoms. Floral fragrances are considered ultra-feminine, their sweet symphonies seldom used for masculine fragrances. Whilst few fragrances are made up of one, solo note, floral fragrances may hold one flower in the spotlight, the accompanying notes acting as a chorus line. Conversely, floral fragrances may be formed of a full, fresh bouquet of flowers, with each flora playing an equal role. Bouquet or single note, floral fragrances are classic, romantic and light.
A warm and sensual union of flowers and spices, forming an exotic fusion of floral and oriental fragrances. Built upon a sweet, powdery base, the Oriental Floral (or ‘Floriental’) fragrance family is warm and seductive, with top notes of exotic or spicy flora such as the tiare flower. This marriage of floral and oriental blends flowers with spices, warm woods and resins, to create a sweet, sensual symphony. A perfect fragrance for those who desire the warmth and spice of Oriental fragrances with a lighter, sweeter touch.
Voluptuous, sensual, and seductive. Oriental fragrances tend to have an ‘after-dark’ feel, their richness prone to linger. Their fresh, fruity top notes act as an introductory composition to their full bodied nature. Blends of traditional oriental resins, lavish flora, sweet vanilla and musks combine to form a sumptuous harmony, the likes of which are rooted in perfumery history.
Wood scents are nutty and earthy in nature, with spicy, sophisticated, masculine accords. Classic wood scents are dominated by notes of patchouli and vetiver, as, despite their status as roots and leaves respectively, their scents are markedly woody and earthy. Whilst some wood fragrances linger, their deep aroma strong and heady, others, such as those containing sandalwood, are luxuriously soft and creamy. Opt for mossy wood fragrances for earthy wood notes, reminiscent of leaf-carpeted paths, or dry wood fragrances for dry, leathery accords.
The Spice fragrance family is made up of warming spices you may recognise from the kitchen. Spicy, mulled notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg form sensual aromas often reminiscent of Christmas or cooking. These heated notes are often used to add a bit of fire to wood or oriental fragrances, their deliciously sweet harmonies able to complement their rich accords.
