40notes Perfumers' Palette
Notes and Accords are the building blocks of Perfumery.
One of the most startling developments I've witnessed in the fragrance world, both Indie and Industry, is the urgency to create Natural Perfumery.
Whether as scent alone or in formulations, consumers are asking for fragrance to comply with the 'greening' of our overall footprint.
Concurrently, consumers and professionals alike lack the vocabulary and understanding of Natural Perfumery.
Definitions of essential oils, absolutes, fractions, isolates, hydrosols, CO2's; extraction methods, labeling requirements elude.
Are Absolutes natural?
Why does that Isolate sound so scary if it's natural?
How do you label a Natural Perfume?
