Spicy Perfumes: History and Characteristics
Caressing the senses with spices is an ancient art that has spanned the millennia: as far back as 2000 B.C., in fact, spices such as Cinnamon, Ginger, Pepper and Cardamom, were appreciated and widespread especially in the Middle East. Over time, they came all the way to Europe through the famous “spice route” which started from Indonesia, and passed through Sri Lanka, India, Egypt, and Italy, conquering the noses and palates of mercants, bourgeois and aristocrats of the era, until it even became a status symbol in the higher social classes. They could be used in cooking to give flavor to dishes, but also to create perfumes, creams or unguents from the most different beneficial effects: for this reason, spices were also used as trade commodities, and their value even challenged that of gold.
Today, the situation has slightly changed: one no longer measures a person's wealth and prestige by how much pepper he or she keeps in his or her household reserves, but there remains a tendency to enrich male and female fragrances with the spicy and sensual aroma that characterizes these raw materials. In particular, there are hottest spices, such as Cinnamon and Saffron, which give an elegant and intense touch to a fragrance, and coldest spices, such as Cardamom and Pepper, which give more freshness and energy instead. In general, spicy fragrances have a strong character, are deep, spicy, fresh and elegant, and are used both in the bottom notes, to give intensity and persistence to a fragrance, and as main raw materials within the composition. When should you use spicy fragrances? There is no real fixed rule: it depends a lot on one's personal preferences! Generally speaking, a warmer spice turns out to be more suitable for the winter, while a cooler spice is an appropriate choice for the summer or mid-season.
A little bit of trivia: do you know what is the most used spice in perfumery? Contrary to what you would expect, the answer is... the Vanilla (which falls into the olfactory family of sweet perfumes)!
