Floral perfumes emerged during the 20th century and are directly inspired by nature. They are based on one or more floral scents and consist of a variety of creations. There are two different types of floral perfume, the so-called soliflore fragrances which consist of a single floral note, and floral bouquets whereby different floral notes are combined.
Floral fragrances are composed of various ingredients such as lily of the valley, rose, violet, iris and frangipani. These scents can be combined with botanical, fruity or spicy notes to reveal the true beauty of an olfactory composition.
Characterised by their sweetness and delicacy, essential or absolute oils are mainly used as heart notes to increase the longevity of pleasant floral notes.
Composed of more than 250 aromatic components, the Bulgarian rose is a flower full of warmth and tenderness. It was described by the Romans as the flower of Love.

The Iris flower has no smell; it is the iris’ rhizome or root from which its essence is extracted, which reveals powdery notes of violet and gives the perfume a powerful yet refined edge.
