Aldehydes, the synthesis revolution

Without aldehydes, the "Chanel N ° 5" perfume would not exist… Indeed, the first use of aldehydes in luxury perfumery was carried out in 1921 to give one of the most beautiful creations of "Chanel N ° 5" perfumes. »… Aldehydes do not have a poetic name, but they are full of particular and different olfactory notes. The number of carbon atoms classifies aldehydes, so we find aldehydes C6 to C12. Thus, we note that the C10 aldehyde smells of orange, the C11 smells of candle wax, the C12 the smell of a hot iron… Aldehydes give a composition soaring and power. They are undeniably temperamental! Many designers have subsequently followed "Chanel N ° 5" by incorporating aldehydes, as in Coty's "Magnet," "Liu" by Guerlain, or even "Calèche" by Hermès.

Aldehydes agreements

Due to the many fragrances they offer, aldehydes can be associated with all olfactory families. Aldehydes very often accompany flowers, to which they give a magical effect and an exceptional radiance. The flowery-aldehyde perfumes are very numerous today and very appreciated by women because they are essentially feminine perfumes. As for the perfume "Arpège" by Lanvin, created in 1927 and yet still so modern. "Arpège" immediately brings freshness with bergamot, neroli, and honeysuckle. In the heart notes, Bulgarian roses associated with jasmine and ylang-ylang offer a sumptuous, irresistibly flowery side. It must be said that this perfume was created by Jeanne Lanvin for the 30 years of her daughter Marie-Blanche, to whom she wished to offer "The most beautiful perfume in the world." Aldehydes are also available in chypre-floral-aldehyde, which offer fragrances for elegant, self-confident women, such as "Mitsouko" by Guerlain or "Eau du Soir" by Sisley.
