Are you on your quest to your perfect weight? Who isn’t…? In case you adore the sweet smell of cotton candy and toffee and find it difficult to resist it, you have a healthier and more pleasant alternative to eating a handful of candy – get a perfume with a caramel note in it and you’ll get the best of both worlds!
Caramel is what we think of when our cravings for something sweet reach their peak. The sensual love affair between candy and condensed milk brings to the world the rich and creamy caramel – irresistible to both the palate and the olfaction.
The warm buttery, toffee caramel aroma coming from your kitchen will not leave anyone at home indifferent. Throughout the years caramel has deserved its place in the food industry (especially for desserts). It’s been used as a flavoring in desserts, as a filling in candies, as a topping for ice cream, etc.
Caramel has a long history. It’s been used for hundreds of years and its use can be traced back to the 17th century. No wonder it was a favorite dessert even back then – the ingredients were easy to find, the process of making it didn’t take much effort, and it had a long life – features that make it a preferred dessert even today. Not to mention its divine taste, of course!
An interesting fact about caramel is that Americans love it so much they even have a day to celebrate it – the National Caramel Day, 5th of April!
In the food industry caramel goes well with flavours like vanilla, chocolate, apples, milk, and maple. In perfumery, it blends very well with fruit, sweet, and oriental notes, and especially chocolate, patchouli, acacia, sandalwood, amber, and vanilla.
This buttery note is widely used in perfumery due to its ability to enrich the delicate floral fragrances and add sweetness to their elusive nature. It is also used in oriental fragrances, enhancing their delicacy. There are many diverse caramel nuances that modern perfumery avails of: cotton candy, salted butter caramel, dulce de leche, and toffee notes. Each one of these nuances adds a different shade to perfumes, which is why this note is so popular both in men and in women fragrances.
