ORIENTAL FAMILY

Warm & bewitching

Did you know?
Oriental perfumes only became popular in France in the 20th century with the emergence of the great perfumes of François Coty which were centred around ambrein, the main component of ambergris. The first major success in traditional perfumery occurred in 1925 with Guerlain's Shalimar. These amber-like and oriental fragrances are indispensable ingredients in Oriental perfumery.


The fragrances of the Oriental family stand out because of their unique blend of warmth and sensuality. They take their richness from fine, decadent ingredients such as vanilla, tonka, benzoin, patchouli and balsam of Peru, which are often combined with exotic floral and spicy scents.


Characterised by their strength and power, their resinoids or absolutes are mainly used as base notes to evoke their warm and opulent tones.
