As plants, geraniums are bountiful, flowering and abundantly fragrant; these virtues make geranium oil a staple in any perfumer’s lab. Interestingly the leaves of the plant are the fragrant component rather than the flowers, and the oil is commonly extracted for perfumery by steam distilling both the leaves and the stem.
The beauty of geranium is its versatility and longevity. Moreover, it holds the potential for myriad diffusions from leafy-earthy to rosy-minty and rich. The leafy side adds to a fougere composition while its partnership with rose can encourage a greener, fresher rose scent as if you’ve just picked it from the garden. Indeed, geranium is even called “the other rose”, where its scent is sharper, and more herbaceous than traditional rose fragrances. Popular in soaps and lotions, geranium is often ubiquitous with clean. As a trend in perfumery the earthiness can reflect petroleum with a green nuance which impresses an expensive and exotic feel.
We’ve thoughtfully selected the perfumes in this pack to give you the best experience of the use of geranium. There are perfumes for reference as well as examples of how geranium can be styled as fresh, with rose, and as a chypre or fougere. We hope you come to know geranium as so much more than a simple floral note, but a complex and compelling material in its own right.

One of our all-time bestsellers, geranium delivers a heavenly green and musky nuance. With geranium, neroli is more verdant and sparkling rather than citrusy and super-fresh. This perfume exudes modern feminine sophistication.
Geranium is one of the few materials in this exquisite perfume and is used only to highlight the beauty of the rare and fragrant rose de Taif. In its herbaceous synergy geranium brightens and reflects the peppery rose creating a flawless and captivating impression.
In the background geranium is green and earthy promoting the pink pepper and juniper as lively and spicy tones. The cinnamon and patchouli ensure a warm and seductive diffusion, balanced with vibrant notes of vetiver, enhanced and refreshed by the cool geranium.
In its earthiest form geranium is highlighted by notes of crude oil and leather, conjuring a rich and altogether ‘expensive’ effect. Combined with woody vetiver and boozy rum, the strength of Black Gold is softened with styrax and cumin producing a much more sumptuous effect.
