Apples (Pyrus Malus, from the genus Malus) have a distinctive scent that can be used in perfumery to create a range of fragrances. Apples are believed to be native to the region of Central Asia, specifically in the area encompassing modern-day Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and the southern parts of Russia. The wild ancestor of the cultivated apple, known as Malus sieversii, is still found in these regions. Over thousands of years, apples were domesticated and selectively bred, leading to the development of the numerous apple varieties we have today. Our apple is an isolate, which is a specific aromatic compound or ingredient that has been extracted or isolated from a natural source, which in this case is apples.
In perfumery, apple is often used as a note to add a fresh, crisp, and fruity character to fragrances. It can evoke a sense of youthfulness, playfulness, and naturalness. The scent of apples can vary depending on the variety, ranging from sweet and juicy to tart and green.
Apple belongs to the Fruity family and is used as a Top/Middle note. It is commonly used to provide a vibrant and refreshing opening to a fragrance composition.
Apple notes can be blended with other ingredients to create unique fragrance compositions. It pairs well with citrus fruits, berries, florals, woods, and spices, allowing perfumers to create a wide range of aromatic combinations.
Overall, apple notes add a refreshing and fruity element to perfumes, contributing to a wide range of fragrance compositions. Whether it's a crisp green apple or a sweet and juicy red apple, the scent of apples can bring a vibrant and youthful character to perfumery.
In Celtic and Druidic traditions, apples were highly regarded and associated with wisdom, immortality, and the Otherworld. The mythical land of Tir na nOg, the Celtic equivalent of the afterlife, was said to have apple orchards. Apples were used in divination rituals and as offerings to deities.
In Norse mythology, apples were associated with the goddess Idun, who was the keeper of the golden apples that granted the gods eternal youthfulness. The apples symbolized rejuvenation and vitality.
