When you think about perfume ingredients, pineapple probably isn’t the first one that comes to mind. To be fair, that’s because it’s not that commonly used. However, when people first smell pineapple perfume, they usually rave about its sweet, distinctive aroma; which is intensely evocative.
If you’re curious to know more about pineapple scented perfume, here’s some useful information to help you.
There’s nothing new about using fruit in fragrance. Lemon, bergamot and apple are all commonly used in perfumes around the world. So why is pineapple not so common? Well firstly, it’s more expensive. It’s also hard to extract long-lasting scent from it. However, when perfume-developers make the effort to preserve that great pineapple fragrance, it’s beautifully intense.
Pineapple is a naturally sweet fruit, but it has a sharpness to it too, which is why it works so well in fragrance. That little bit of bite provides the perfect counterbalance to so many other ingredients, such as vanilla, coconut or even the more sultry scents, like amber and sandalwood.
As far as we’re concerned, the perfect pineapple perfume should transport you to a tropical island. It’s such an evocative scent, that as soon as you inhale it, images of white sandy beaches and clear ocean waters should come to mind.
It’s a fresh, punchy sort of smell, so as a result, the average pineapple cologne is likely to be more suited for daytime wear than for evenings. Even better, if you’re looking for the perfect holiday fragrance, this is definitely a good option!
Shawq, a Unisex Eau de Parfum, is a great example of a pineapple perfume in action that opens with invigorating notes of lime, pineapple and blackcurrant. The ripe, aromatic fruits move seamlessly toward a combination of lily of the valley and birch at the heart of the fragrance. The tender white bells of the lily contrast with the strength of the birch to represent both the boldness and the tenderness of his heart. Patchouli adds further strength and presence in the long-lasting base note signature, with sensual musks and ambroxan providing a warm frame for the uniquely appealing Shawq signature.
Amaali Concentrated Perfume Oil (for Her), also opens with juicy pineapple, crisp green apple and zesty lemon. Making a statement right from the start, the colourful fruits add life to a cold winter night. A breathtakingly feminine bouquet of white jasmine petals and deep red roses bring the heart of the fragrance out into the moonlit air, leaving an enchanting floral trail in your wake. This fragrance, just like the woman who wears it, is full of surprises. As the petals meld seamlessly into woody sensual territory, a radiant accord of golden vanilla and silky caramel emerges, making you smell unforgettably delicious all night long.
Put simply, if you’re planning on jetting away this summer, this is the ideal cologne to take with you.
Pineapple is such a strong, distinctive aroma that it’s not guaranteed to be to everyone’s taste. However, if you like your fragrances to be immediately recognizable, potent and lively, then it might be worth testing a pineapple perfume out, to see if it works for you.
Think about the following before making a decision:
Where will you wear it? Are you looking for the ideal fragrance to wear on holiday? Or do you want something that’s more suited for daily use? What about in the evenings? For example, if you’re searching for a fragrance that’s sensual and opulent, a pineapple-based scent might not be quite what you’re looking for.
Do you like attracting attention? If so, pineapple is a natural match for you. Its recognizable aroma is sure to turn plenty of heads, which is great if you want to make a big impression.
