The Top 5 Floral Fragrances (And How to Use Them)

Floral aromas have dominated the fragrance industry for many years, and for good reasons. Floral fragrances are among the most pleasing types of aromas in nature, and come in many different forms. They can be found throughout the fragrance industry, in everything from perfumes and colognes to home cleaning products. One of the most interesting things about floral fragrances is the fact that each is diverse, and can be used in a number of different ways. They can also be paired with a number of different fragrance ingredients for new and unique aromas. However, the properties of some floral fragrances make them ideal for specific uses.


5. Jasmine – The exotic fragrance of jasmine has made it a particular favorite in a number of different applications. While it is popular in perfumes and other bath and body products, jasmine is exceptionally useful in the creation of fragrances for the home. It can be found in a number of different home products, including scented candles, room deodorizers, and incenses. It pairs well with warm and woody fragrances, and for more experimental applications may be paired with aromas such as leather or musk. Advanced Biotech’s Natural Jasmine Absolute provides an easy way for fragrance creation teams to add a rich, exotic jasmine fragrance to their products.


4. Orange-Blossom – While people’s first impression of orange-blossom may be to take note of the citrus essence it carries, as the fruit grows from these flowers, orange-blossom also has distinctive floral notes that make it perfect for many types of fragrance. Orange-blossom is commonly used in fresh and invigorating perfumes and body products such as body spray, shampoos and conditioners, and lotion. Advanced Biotech’s Natural Neryl Acetate allows fragrance creation teams to add orange-blossom to their products to recreate this sweet and invigorating aroma.


3. Gardenia – Gardenia is a striking aroma that could very well be considered a classic in the fragrance industry. It is most commonly used in the creation of perfumes and other products for the body, but is seeing increasing usage in products that are used in the home. Among the most popular are scent diffusers, gardenia scented oils and sprays, and gardenia scented candles. Gardenia pairs well with a number of other floral fragrances; it is commonly used in “white” blends with other floral fragrances such as lily.


2. Rose – The most iconic floral scent, rose has been popular for a number of years. It can be used in virtually every application that one could imagine, due to the versatility and popularity of the rose aroma. Rose also pairs well with a number of other fragrances, ranging from other sweet florals such as the aforementioned orange-blossom and gardenia to musky aromas, such as leather and wood. Fragrance creation teams can look to products such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Nerol, Natural Geraniol, and Natural Octanol to create a great rose aroma.


1. Violet – A key fragrance ingredient, violet can be used in a number of different ways. This floral scent is notable for being warm, rich, and for providing the perfect base for the creation of great, complex fragrances. By using Advanced Biotech’s Natural Ionone, Natural Alpha Ionone, and Natural Beta Ionone, violet is also fairly easy to harness and use, whether one is creating a perfume or a delightfully scented cleaning product.
