for perfumes with character

Several different elements can be smoked in flavors.
However, wood is one of the most suitable ingredients.
They are often very present in the base notes of essences but can also appear at their heart, for decidedly intense juices.
Sandalwood, cedar, patchouli, or even oud wood are all ingredients that can be smoked, revealing another facet of their personality, richer, animal and airy.
Likewise, resins are also ingredients that lend themselves very well to smoking.
The sap or balsams then blend wonderfully with the most precious wood, cultivating a new idea of ​​sensuality.
Vanilla is also an ingredient that lends itself very well to this practice.
It then becomes sweeter than ever and particularly sweet.
Finally, incense or tobacco also contributes greatly to creating a sense of mystery in the juices that contain it.
Smoky notes to reconnect with the sacred sense of perfume.
Integrating smoky notes into perfumes also means reconnecting with the sacred sense of perfumery.
Indeed, at its origin, the perfume takes its name from the term “per fumum” which literally means “by smoke”.
In the past, herbs and vegetable raw materials were burned to be offered as offerings to the gods.
Smoke signals were therefore sent into the air and the perfume then appeared as a sort of bridge between the human world and the divine universe.
The smoky notes integrated today in essences reconnect with this primary meaning of perfumery, taking us into a very strong ancestral olfactory heritage.
