Plum, a delicious scent

The scent of plum is used in both male and female perfumery. Plum offers velvety, sweet, gourmet fragrances with floral and syrupy facets. Plum belongs to the fruity olfactory family and it will be found mainly in the top note. As in the Repetto perfume for women by Repetto. The plum top note brings its very fruity fragrance to the heart of the fragrance which is made up of orange blossom, cherry blossom, almond and rose. The trail is rather woody, thanks in particular to patchouli. Result, a fragrance that expresses an intense femininity. Depending on the variety of the plum, perfumers put the spotlight on either its sweet, fruity side, its floral side or its gourmet accord.

Plum and its association with the different olfactory fragrances

Like its olfactory family, plum harmonizes perfectly with other fruits, as well as with floral, woody, citrus and oriental notes. Plum has incorporated many floral fragrances such as Amarige by Givenchy, Diorama by Dior or even Calypso by Lancôme. In these scents, the plum can reveal all its floral and sweet side. However, we discover the plum in perfumes for men, some are woody, others oriental like the perfume Jacomo for men by Jacomo, created in 2007. Here, the plum in heart note is proudly associated with the walnut. nutmeg, chili and coffee. Jacomo for men has a taste for the unexpected and for escape. It is a seductive fragrance, but authentic. The plum offers all its flavor with refined notes, such as vanilla, mahogany, cedar wood as is the case for Hugo Boss 'Boss' fragrance. In this woody-spicy plum, still in the top note, is associated in base note with warmer notes such as sandalwood, vetiver or cedar wood.

A small fruit appreciated by all, the plum offers more than 400 different varieties. In perfumery, plum fragrances are reproduced synthetically, in particular thanks to the damascone molecule. Belonging to the fruity family, the plum has soft and sweet facets. It goes perfectly with other fruit notes as well as floral, woody and citrus notes.
