Aromatic Olfactory Group
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.
- Aromatic Aquatic – Compositions of this group include fresh accords of sea water and are mostly found as fragrances for men.
- Aromatic Fougère – Name of the olfactive group ‘fouler’ derives from French word ‘fougère’ or ‘fern’. Coumarin can be found in the center of compositions. Perfume-originator of this group is Fougère Royal by the house of Houbigant, created by Paul Parquet in 1882. The perfumer extracted the synthetic component coumarin and used it in perfumery for the first time. Coumarin can be found in nature in several plants, such as Tonka beans, and it possesses intensive scent of freshly mown grass. Fougere compositions include notes of lavender, geranium, moss and wood. This group primarily includes perfumes for men.
- Aromatic Fruity – This is a relatively recent group, which encompasses mostly fragrances for men and unisex fragrances composed of aromatic components and fresh fruit providing a fresh, moist and exotic impression.
- Aromatic Green – Compositions of this group include accentuated green notes of grass or leaves, besides aromatic components (lavender, rosemary, wood).
- Aromatic Spicy – This group includes fragrances for men primarily. Combinations of spices and aromatic components leave a fresh and cold impression typically.
