Notes : 

Hedione, a compound crafted in the 1960s, has emerged as one of the most widely utilized aromatic elements. When extracted, it conjures the delicate and immensely fresh essence of jasmine, accompanied by a subtle lemony undertone reminiscent of a lemon slice immersed in a crystalline glass. In its unaltered form, Hedione contributes to the olfactory profile of tea and jasmine fragrances, albeit with a distinctive airiness and luminosity. Beyond its transparent and lightweight nature, Hedione seamlessly intertwines with other ingredients, infusing a creation with freshness, volume, and expansive diffusion. According to Francis Kurkdjian, it can be likened to a gentle breeze carrying the essence of petals.

AmbroxanTM, derived from sclareol, a natural component of clary sage, stands as a creation from the 1950s that progressively replaced ambergris, a natural secretion from the sperm whale. Mirroring the diverse facets of amber, dry woodiness, and minerals, AmbroxanTM represents a highly potent woody note characterized by a lingering sillage, introducing a contemporary sensuality to various compositions. This distinctive element has given rise to an extensive family of akin molecules often referred to as "amber woods."

Virginia Cedar

The distinctive aroma reminiscent of pencil shavings is embodied by Virginia Cedar—woody, dry, with a subtle spiciness and creaminess. Also known as red cedar due to the hue of its wood, this North American cedar belongs to the juniper family, specifically Juniperus Virginiana. While various cedar types find applications in perfumery, Virginia Cedar takes center stage in the heart and base notes, imparting a vertical dimension to its woody theme. Diverging from the characteristics of the other prominent cedar varieties in perfumery—the arid Texas cedar, the animalic and leathery Atlas cedar, and the smoky Chinese cedar—Virginia Cedar offers a unique olfactory profile.


Derived from the pistil of various crocus varieties, saffron, often referred to as "red gold," holds the title of being the most expensive spice globally. While natural saffron is excluded from perfumery due to its safrol content, a highly allergenic compound, its distinctive essence is replicated using one of its derivatives, saffronal. Possessing a potent fragrance, saffronal exudes bitterness and a subtle metallic quality, introducing a play of warmth and coolness to the overall fragrance profile, accompanied by a leathery and tarred facet.

Renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian strategically incorporates saffron in the top layer of fragrances to counterbalance the sweetness of citrus notes. Its aromatic intensity is often harnessed in conjunction with Oud-based perfumes and amber accords, contributing to a complex and alluring olfactory experience.
