The Art & Science of Natural Perfume


The Determination of Those Who Know How to Make Natural Perfume


An emerging trend that provides an alternative to the commercially available scents in the market is natural perfumery. This is a concept that is a union of both science and art to produce natural materials used to create perfume. Examples of the raw ingredients used in natural perfumery are flowers, spices, and woods.

An artisan natural perfumer can extract the essential oils from these materials and then dilute it in alcohol, oils, or waxes to create a perfume in either solid or liquid form. The process has been used since the 19th century and it is only in recent years that it has regained its popularity. The main reason for this is that there is a renewed interest in all things organic and natural.

In addition to this, natural perfumery produces products that do not dry out your skin and is able to produce an actual representation of the scents. Unlike chemical substances, there is no singular note from the first application that dries down. It is also a proven fact that it is better for the health if the body is exposed to less chemicals. Finally, natural perfumery offers a lighter alternative that does not produce scents that linger too strongly on your skin.

What distinguishes natural perfumes is that they are created using the classic processes on how to make natural perfume instead of the factory scale procedures that are more commonly used today. It is able to create all of the scents found in mainstream perfumery while maintaining low, if not non-existent, levels of harsh chemicals.

As such, natural perfumery does not offer synthetic fragrances like lilac, violet, or those from fruits. These scents cannot be produced using distillation or extraction. What natural perfumery processes does is to create similar scents by blending different essential oils. This process is called trompe-nez, which translates to “to fool the nose”. An example of this is to use the ambrette seed to recreate the smell of musk Thus, the problem of achieving different scents have been given a solution by those who have invested time in learning how to make natural perfume.

More often than not, natural perfumery is conducted on a personal level. In fact, those that are engaged in its practice are referred to as artisans. It is not unusual for the products to be packaged by hand. An advantage to this is that custom blended scents can be made for individuals at a reasonable rate. Such a personalized practice is practically impossible when it comes to commercial perfume houses.


Aren't you glad Natural Perfumery still exist?
