Floral Oriental

Floral Oriental perfumes are becoming a popular fragrance group. They retain the feminine charm of traditional floral perfume but the oriental undertones of these complex fragrances give a deeper and more sensual base to their lighter floral counterparts. Floral Oriental Fragrances tend to be fragrances for women and not men due to their softer, more feminine edge.

Floral Oriental fragrances and perfumes are soft, spicy and distinctly feminine. Many of these perfumes for women contain spicy orange flower, mixed with tart Aldehydes and sweet oriental spices. Other popular combinations are rich amber notes, blended with green tones and white flowers, such as Jasmine and Magnolia. Some even take hypnotic blends of oriental resins, night-blooming flowers, musks and vanilla and mix them with the scent of freshly cut flowers.

In this manner they represent a diverse and rich fragrance group. Some Floral Oriental Perfumes are light and bright throughout with a rich oriental base, such as Lancome Poeme, Cacheral Eden and Emporio Armani She/Elle, while some a much deeper and more Oriental throughout, lightened with white flowers and cut grasses, such as Guerlain Samsara, Van Cleef Perfume and Chanel Allure Perfume. Others contain powdery flowers, over an oriental base, such as Vivienne Westwood Boudoir, while many recently have sweeter fruits, vanilla and rose, over the traditional floral oriental notes, for example Valentino Rock N Rose, Valentino V, Givenchy Ange ou Demon and Guerlain Insolence perfume.

Floral Oriental Fragrances for women first appeared in the early 1900’s and quickly became one of the most popular fragrance categories of the first few decades of that century. They became unfashionable in the 1930’s but by the 1970’s this fragrance category had enjoyed a revival to become a staple of most people’s fragrance wardrobe.

Other Floral Oriental Fragrances:


This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
