Oriental perfume – sheer sensuality
Oriental perfume has a unique sensuality. The intense and heavy fragrance is reminiscent of a journey to exotic lands where the markets are overflowing with all kinds of spices, rugs, silk, leather and flowers. The intoxicating blend of fragrance notes develops slowly, allowing the individual nuances to emerge gradually. An oriental perfume releases its fragrance over a long period of time and should ideally be used sparingly.
Oriental fragrances are characterised by sweet, warm and very intense notes. They contain base notes with aromas of spices such as saffron, almond and vanilla, floral components, animal elements and woody notes.
Oriental fragrances embody the longing for faraway places
Perfume with oriental notes was first developed at the start of the 20th Century. This was a time characterised by world discovery and an interest in exotic and foreign influences. Events such as the International Expositions in Paris, theatre and opera performances, as well as new and convenient opportunities for travel promoted the ideas of fashion designers, artists and perfumers, who also drew inspiration from oriental role models.
It's no secret that oriental perfumes are perfectly suited to women. However, men can also use these unique, exotic fragrances. In order to enjoy the subtle nuances and not overstimulate the senses, you only ever need a few drops.
What are oriental perfumes comprised of?
An oriental perfume is often created around a base note of vanilla. However, it may also contain base notes of almond, coconut, patchouli, cinnamon, tobacco, musk, tonka bean, amber and leather. The fragrance notes will then either go in a spicy or floral direction. Floral, oriental fragrances, for instance, often contain the essence of rose, lavender or tuberose.
They can be combined with the delicate nuances of apple blossom, almond blossom, orange blossom or violet. Fruity accents are given to oriental fragrances through a composition with nuances of citrus fruit, melon, pineapple or raspberry. Components such as sandalwood, cedar, grass and violet leaf provide bitter and woody nuances.
