What are the natural fragrances?

Natural fragrances are scents derived from natural sources such as plants, flowers, fruits, spices, and other botanical materials. These fragrances are typically extracted through various methods like steam distillation, cold-press extraction, solvent extraction, and enfleurage. Here are some examples of natural fragrances:

  • Essential Oils: Essential oils are concentrated liquids obtained from plants. They carry the characteristic fragrance and properties of the plant they are derived from. Examples include lavender oil, rosemary oil, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil.
  • Floral Extracts: Fragrances extracted from flowers are commonly used in perfumes and scented products. Examples include rose extract, jasmine extract, and ylang-ylang extract.
  • Citrus Fruits: Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits have aromatic oils in their peels. These oils are commonly used in perfumes, candles, and cleaning products for their fresh and uplifting scents.
  • Spices and Herbs: Fragrances derived from spices and herbs add warmth and depth to perfumes and other scented products. Examples include cinnamon, vanilla, clove, and ginger.
  • Woods and Resins: Fragrances obtained from woods and resins have a rich, earthy, and woody aroma. Examples include sandalwood, cedarwood, frankincense, and myrrh.
  • Balsamic Materials: Balsamic materials such as benzoin, labdanum, and peru balsam provide sweet and resinous notes to fragrances.
  • Mosses and Lichens: Fragrances derived from mosses and lichens add a green, earthy, and mossy aroma. Oakmoss and lichen extracts are commonly used in perfumes.
