Floral fragrances can often be very intense as the natural aromatic compounds are quite complex. Sometimes, it’s nice to have that prettiness in the background or dialled down a notch.
These fragrances are generally lighter in feel overall, so they usually are not dense Orientals. Often, the floral notes might be paired with fruits or citrus, or simply, these can be fresher, more airy scents.
Aroma molecules like Hedione are particularly important in this category. Hedione has a jasmine-like aroma, but brings so much lightness and transparency to fragrances. It’s often used in high concentrations, rather like its more woody cousin, ISO E Super.
