Soft and fruity scent, comfortable and mellow.

Velvety and soft, the peach note adds a juicy, soft note to both fine and functional compositions. Its scent is pervasive but mellow: adding a comfortable, peachy-smooth duality to floral bouquets and fruity compositions.

Production

The peach tree (otherwise known as the Prunus persica) is a deciduous tree belonging to the Rosaceae family. First cherished and cultivated in the Zhejiang province of Eastern China, the peach tree can be found thriving in many temperate climates today. Without a doubt, peaches are an experience of the senses: peach-soft skin grazes lips, a fresh yet honey-sweet scent greets the nostrils, and taste buds are treated. Unfortunately, it is not possible to extract essential oil from peaches, and thus the pleasures of peaches are reproduced synthetically—most notably using gamma-undecalactone (aldehyde C14).

Iconic perfume
Guerlain
MITSOUKO EAU DE TOILETTE

This fragrance by Jacques Guerlain, created in 1919, is one of the first to combine natural and synthetic raw materials. It is considered the first fruity fragrance, thanks to a creamy peach note: undecalactone, also called peach aldehyde, which brightens up an intense and sensual chypre accord.

History

The popularity of peach as a fragrance note really hit its peak during the 90s, when the fashion industry fell into a fruity-fragrance frenzy. But you mightn’t have guessed that the synthetic note of peach has existed for quite a while longer: gamma-undecalactone, or aldehyde C14, was first discovered in 1908. The note was first popularized in 1921 with Guerlain’s “Mitsouko,” and then again in 1944 with Rochas’ “Femme.”
