Cardamom is mainly used in Indian and Middle Easter cuisine, yet it provides fragrances with a very deep smell that lingers on for hours at a time. This is why it’s widely used in fragrances. The mysterious, darkish smell combined with hints of subtle sweet notes usually marries well with other spice and fruit notes to create unique scents. Many times, it’s used often in citrusy fragrances, since it blends pleasantly with citrus notes like sweet orange, lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, petitgrain and neroli.
Oud or agarwood, the provocative fragrance note has been solidly trending for the last three years. The demand for this enticing scent has cemented oud’s place in both mainstream and niche perfumes.
Oud is derived from the Southeast Asian Agarwood tree, which forms a dark resin in order to protect itself from a specific strain of mold. Oud is then extracted from the resin, and blended into the heartwood.
