    Default Fragrances inspired by geographic locations

    Has anyone done this before?

    I would like to start a list of scents inspired by places and geographic locations.

    My list (some are common):

    From Les Voyages Olfactifs collection:
    Guerlain London 04

    Byredo Bal d'Afrique

    YSL Paris
    YSL Parisienne

    Guerlain Shalimar

    Chanel Coromandel

    Any more quick thoughts?

    L'Artisan Dzongkha - a rapturous fragrance, inspired by the remote Buddhist mountain kingdom of Bhutan in the eastern Himalayas. Rich with aromatic influences Dzongkha tells a special story on every skin: that of Dzongkha itself, the spiritual language of Bhutan.

    Diptyque Tam Dao - the fragrance was named for the Vietnamese hill station north of Hanoi. Tam Dao was established as a resort town during French colonial rule; the town is now inside of Tam Dao National Park and is a popular weekend tourist destination. Diptyque's Tam Dao fragrance was created by perfumer Daniel Moliere, and the notes include rosewood, cypress, ambergris, and sandalwood.

    Diptique Do Son - Relief from the sweltering climate, a pagoda on the shores of Ha Long Bay, where trade winds tenderly caress the flowers. A name that sings, undulating like waves upon a beach. Do Son is an eau de toilette rich with contrast, exuding the fresh, intoxicating sensuality of tuberose.

    Hermes Un Jardin après la Mousson: created in 2008, it explores the facets of an unexpected India, when the monsoon restores to the earth what the sun has taken, chasing away the burning breath of drought. Ginger, cardamom, coriander, pepper and vetiver speak of the rebirth of nature captured in Kerala, a universe engorged with water. The nose behind this fragrance is Jean-Claude Ellena.

    L'Artisan Passage d'Enfer - The Hell is a way of passing the 14th arrondissement of Paris between the Boulevard Raspail and Rue Campagne-Première . It takes its name from the former name of the boulevard Raspail, Boulevard d'Enfer (leading place Denfert-Rochereau ). This is the last remnant of the name of Wood Hell bad reputation which covered this area in ancient times.

    Notes: The above descriptions are directly from Diptique, Hermes, L'Artisan's website or found elsewhere.

    How about:
    Bal à Versailles
    Bond No 9 New Haarlem
    Avignon (and Zagorsk, Kyoto, Jaisalmer)?

    Of course, a lot of brands will just stick 'Paris' or 'Other exotic name' on the bottle without having been inspired by those places per se, so it's a thin line ...

    Yes, especially brands like Bond No.9 - ALL their fragrances are named after NY burbs and locations, not just New Haarlem.

    I was going to post about CdG incense series, you beat me to it. :-)

    Hmmm, some of these are a bit tenuous. It's highly unlikely that Jean-Paul Guerlain was inspired by Derby the place when he made his classic men's scent ...
