Perfume and Fragrance Trends 2009

Fragrance Trend Predictions For 2009

At the beginning of each year, as companies start forecasting anticipated trends, I can't help but get excited. I'm fascinated by the amount of research and scientific analysis that goes into the process. It's a bit psychology, economics, and a whole lot of creativity. Pantone, for instance, predicts tones that affect the fashion and home industries, trickling down to cosmetics and other beauty items, too. Even the food industry has their version with flavor trends. And recently, it was the fragrance industry's turn, as Perfumer & Flavorist magazine announced the results of Bell Flavors and Fragrances top 10 profiles for 2009. Here's a bit more about fragrance types, and check out the scents below:

  • Tilleul/linden flower (limey).
  • Sandalwood with creamy lactones (organic compounds that have milky, creamy, and coconut qualities).
  • Deep dry amber notes.
  • Floral rose violet.
  • Tuberose orange flower.

  • Citrus aromatic.
  • Oriental floral.
  • Floral fruity.
  • Floral woody.
  • Woody — olive wood, precious wood, and cedar wood notes.

That Tuberose orange flower sounds interesting. I've always liked citrusy scents although was never crazy about rose scents. I'm curious what that one would smell like.

A lot of these sound nice, but I've never been a fan of anything rose-scented.

These notes are beautiful! And thank God we're over the heavy Gardenia that is overwhelming in so many fragrances!!!
