Delicate Osmanthus Home Fragrance has a fruity, slightly coppery fragrance which bathes your home in the magic of this iconic Asian flower. The top note of osmanthus reveals its sunny side, enhanced with the spicy freshness of lemon. The ultra-feminine floral heart reveals its mellow facet, while the sensuality of patchouli is subdued by the sweetness of musk and the dryness of amber. Perfume secret: Osmanthus is a shrub with prickly leaves with elegant clusters of flowers whose scent fills the air in towns in the south of China near Guilin, which means “forest of sweet osmanthus”. In China, it is one of the ten traditional flowers grown for its fragrance for over two thousand years. It is very sophisticated and plays an important role in traditional Chinese ceremonies as a symbol of love and romanticism. Much used in perfumery, it exhales a rich apricot-like fragrance with white flowers and a touch of powdery violet.
