Collection: Asafoetida Fragrances

Perfumes that contain the unique and pungent note of Asafoetida, derived from the dried oleoresin of the Ferula herb, are not as common as other fragrance notes. However, it can add a distinctive and intriguing touch to a perfume. Asafoetida has a scent profile that falls between leek and onion, with a stinky, sulfurous quality that can be polarizing. Despite this, it has been used in classic fragrances such as Ma Griffe and in modern fragrances like Premier Figuier, showcasing its versatility and potential to add depth and complexity to a scent. If you're looking for a fragrance that is unique and daring, one with the Asafoetida note may be worth exploring.

Description

This pungent material is the dried oleoresin from the taproot of the herb known as Ferula. Popular names for this substance include Devil's Dung, Hing, Ting, or stinky gum, due to its unpleasant aroma. This perennial herb grows to six feet in height, with bright yellow flowers. The often unpleasant aroma of oleoresin is offset by its value as a culinary spice. Asafoetida has a strong distinctive flavor described as reminiscent of onions or leeks. The spice is very popular in Asia for the flavor it imparts and for its anti-flatulent and anti-microbial properties.
