FRUITY

Type
Reproduction accord

Fruity, alcoholic, rising top note with liquorous and woody accents.

Warm and smooth, this gourmand note adds a good swig of character to masculine accords. Dashingly complex and well-versed at sparking intrigue, rum is a note that packs charisma. Its woody, molasses-inspired facets vibrate alongside ripe, fruity notes of subtly sweet character.

Production

The intoxicating scent of rum is produced through sugarcane distillation. After fermentation, rum is crushed and distilled before being aged. In perfumery, a further process of extraction is undertaken to obtain a scent that’s perfectly shaped to the perfumer’s liking.
Origin
Guadeloupe, martinique

History

The history of rum is closely tied to the history of colonialism, trade, and the world’s obsession with sugar. As a byproduct of sugarcane, rum was introduced to the world for the first time in the 17th century once it was discovered that molasses, a byproduct of the sugar refining process, could be fermented into alcohol. Rum was an instant hit, and its popularity spread quickly. The global trading routes that sailed the supplies were well-established to meet this newfound demand—meaning rum ended up in the hands of sailors and pirates alike.
