How do tulips smell, very little people think. They are too beautiful and fragile – looking to be as wet tight buds turned into shaggy restorereplica petals single. However, the re-creation of the smell of tulips is haunted by the perfumers and sympathetic. And the first thing coming to mind is his olfactory incarnation – La Tulipe from Byredo. It’s the aroma of a wide fleshy Tulip leaf, well, or torn petal – fresh and clean to such an extent that soon begins to resemble a Laundry detergent. Or mediastay the March snow.
As to the origin of the Tulip notes – it’s complicated. In the sense that you get from this flower oil or absolute impossible. «The situation is not the easiest, says perfume chemist Matthew Yudov. – There are certain characteristic substances, which are treated more or less clearly. CIS-3-hexenol, for example, no smell of green grass and sloping lawn. But often, as in the case with the Tulip, this is not. Moreover, mixing the same substances in different proportions, you can get like completely different flowers. Monoatomic is always a complex mixture, no easier conventional perfume compositions. Here for tulips no such Tulipanes or turpenoid who put – and the Tulip. Here are possible options, and get the smell of a variety of ways. The classic approach is: profile of the Tulip is somewhere between Lily and saffron, with pronounced notes of honey and tobacco. So there is nothing secret in creating the Tulip is no question of imagination and good balance.»
And here is the proof. For example, among two dozen notes formula Phathom V, BeauFort Tulip, and juniper berries, tangerine, black currant, soil, thyme, Lily, Jasmine, ginger, cumin, black pepper, oak moss, salt cedar. But from the bottle it smells distinctly of fresh-cut succulent with thick stems that hurry was wrapped in wet gauze to a bouquet of flowers wilted on the way home from the market.
At Songe de Tulipe Italian brand Il Profumo, despite the name, Tulip peculiar: transparent green liquid oozes out from it, soft dusty odor black velvet pollen on the stamens.
Note Tulip is a frequent guest in the scents of Bond No. 9, created in honor of the realities of new York. Before you think «Oh wow! Why is it that?» just remember that the most beautiful tulips blooming in the parks, on the streets and even on the median strips of highways of the Big Apple. Well: High Line – fresh-cut grass on the lawn superwhores respectable American family; Chealsea Flowers – floral fragrance fair, as boring as a straight-a student, and indeed all too correct; Madison Square Park – a deliberately fresh, on shaky border himonya, the smell of blossoming trees and flower beds.
Two more spring flower, whose smell is produced synthetically, – the Lily of the valley and lilac. Oil of lilac to produce vomozhno, but at a cost: no more than three liters of tens of millions of flowers. «Lilac is one of the first flowers, whose fragrance has learned to synthesize in the laboratory, says Matthew Yudov. – Classic purple chord, invented about a hundred years ago, was based on gamma-terpineol, heliotropine and cinnamic alcohol».
The smell of lilacs – persistent, heavy, powdery, with a noticeable bitterness (it gives hydrocyanic acid). The spring lilac – Decou-Vert from Laboratorio Olfattivo, smells from flowers, leaves, branches. In a bottle of En Passant perfume publishing house Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle – a white lilac Bush. Blossoms wet, with drops of rain. Some of the branches broken, so the smell is especially bitter. This is the taste of chewed «happy» flower is the five-leaf.
Do not ignore the budget lilac perfume. Yves Rocher Lilas Mauve – sweet powder, as if someone blew round vintage powder box, and in the air hung a cloud of fragrant pink dust. Lilac «Romance» from the «Gardens of temptation» Brocard – more than realistic still life with a bouquet of lilacs on the terrace of the Villa on a Sunny day.
As for Lily, toLassica of the genre – the legendary Diorissimo, released by Christian Dior in 1956 and instantly became a hit. Here he writes about the British fragrance expert Lizzie Ostrom, in the book «Perfume. The history of the flavors of the twentieth century»: «Diorissimo – it is the leading spring fragrance, transparent like chiffon, a cross between a soap and juice plants. This complements the smell of germinating onions, morning wet grass and the chirping of birds. It can be described as beautiful and sensible, he is not calling».
The most honored aroma of Lily of the valley – Guerlain Le Muguet. It was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1908 and dedicated in the French tradition to celebrate the Day of Lily of the valley on may 1. Tart green belotsvetova note of Lily of the valley in compostie was accompanied by lemon, freesia, iris, ylang-ylang. 90 years Jean-Paul Guerlain slightly changed the formula (bergamot, rose, lilac, Jasmine, musk, sandalwood), and from 2006 Le Muguet began to sell only once a year – the first day in may. However, Russia made an exception and moved the sale on April 20, considering the love of our fellow citizens to celebrate may holidays away from boutiques, in nature.
In the nomination «the most uncompromising Lily of the valley» winner Lily of the Valley by Demeter – clear, pure smell as if modelled out of wax flowers on a thin green stem. The second contender for the title – Mughetto Florentine brand Santa Maria Novella, tied with a thick thread of bouquet, from which palm then for a long time will smell of sharp herbs.
Sometimes Lily is behaving atypically, and a vivid example – Muguet Porcelaine from the line Hermes Hermessence. «Classic Lily of the valley is not enough. Watercolor, greens, freshness, spring ice stream, gedion, squeaking clean and freshly-cut young zucchini» – wrote about the fragrance of the perfume critic Love Belianska in his blog Parfantasy. Vegetable Lily of the valley? Wow. Another of the interesting – Bouquet Romantique from Mimmina Flower, where Lily breaks persistently viewed viscosity pureed with sugar of strawberries. And Ramon Molvisar Elements 5 – this Lily of the valley will hit the olfactory receptors in the first few seconds, and then it will absorb the moist soil, which grows peppermint and lies dry needles.
