Thread: Cologne with cherry notes?
Sorry if I 'm dragging this but I 've been wondering about that for ages. It says in the text that bitter almonds and the seeds of apricots and cherries contain similar oils. The cherry scent as it is found in cough syrup or lozenges does not include the bitter almond flavor of the cherry pit.
Hey Guys, I received my bottle of Casran today and had to sample some on my wrist. Though not an easy scent
to detect, due to the aftershave strength, my impression was that it was a bit perfumy. Certainly not as masculine
as M7 and Varvatos. It certainly smells pleasant enough though, so I expect to give this one a go.
Here is a Google Books excerpt which talks about how benzaldehyde is the main component in cherry juice and how benzaldehyde is important as an ingredient in synthetic cherry flavorings:
Oh, and by the way, I am wearing L'Heure Bleue extrait today...the first few hours are cherry-vanilla-almond, kind of jammy and pastry-like.
I remember that I had a formula for making a cherry accord for fragrance and benzaldehyde was key.
