Fruit Meets Floral: The Best Combinations

A lot of people tend to think of perfumes as either floral or fruity in nature, but why not both? There are numerous different fruit and floral combinations available that can be pretty incredible when done right, and the aromas that these combinations create can be a great way to bring something familiar to the table while still offering something a little bit different. Let’s check out some of our favorite fruit and floral combinations and explore why they work so well for insight into how you can make use of them in your own aromas.


The tanginess of orange and the almost overwhelming sweetness of rose may not seem like they would be a perfect fit, but this is a classic fruit and floral combination that is sure to please, and that can be spiced up in a number of different ways. Advanced Biotech’s Natural Octanol is the perfect way to bring in orange aroma, as it already includes an element of rose. Combined with ingredients such as Natural Neryl Acetate to boost the rose aroma, perfumists can easily create incredible and exciting products.


Another great combination is pear, with its fresh and tart profile, which goes perfectly with gardenia, which is aromatic and bright. For an even more refreshing twist, green apple can be added into the mix. The overwhelmingly bright aroma of cherry may not be for everyone, but it can combine well with numerous different floral aromas, including more delicate florals such as orchid.


The best way to think about creating new combinations is to consider the various elements of the existing aromas. Think about the way that they fit together – what do they have in common? What about these fruit and floral aromas is dissimilar? Often, very different aromas can combine harmoniously and create something that, while unusual, is also appealing to buyers. Be sure to explore all the options at your disposal when creating new aromas, whether it is for a perfume product or for a personal care product such as shower gel or lotion, where fruity-floral combinations are especially prevalent.
