When perfumery was first established, fruit was not considered to be a fragrance. Fruity fragrances are contemporary creations, which are reconstituted in laboratories using molecules that exist in their natural state such as ( lactones and gamma-undecalactone). Their aroma can range from sweet notes, such as raspberry, strawberry and peach, to exotic and fresh ones.
Fruity notes are rarely used alone in natural perfumery. Due to their subtlety, they are more suited as an accompaniment to other heart or top notes, giving them freshness or body as desired.
Symbolic of seduction, exotic fruit notes have become very popular in men's fragrances. They are a blend that perfectly complements the floral family, giving a sense of freshness and delicacy.
Frambinone is a natural element that is the main aromatic compound found in raspberries. It gives the perfume a fruity touch that is both sweet and sour.
