PUSHING THE LIMITS OF NATURAL FRAGRANCE
We live in an industry of “off the shelf," white-label repurposed products that marketers whip into something special. Nothing was off the shelf when it came to one of Corpus’s most distinctive attributes. It was no easy feat to create a natural fragrance that meets the expectations of fine fragrance
THE MODERN VEGAN CHEF
Natural perfumery could be compared to the modern vegan chef who transforms the constraints on ingredients into convincing and satisfying substitutes. Only with a great amount of research, development, creativity, and experience can you compete with the expectations set by conventional chemistry.
Our natural fragrance is built with the traditional fragrance architecture of a base, middle and top note. The fragrances we have come to love over the years are chalked full of synthetic compounds that give them a burst of top notes and a musky base. The typical Musk and Aldehyde notes that are used in perfumery are only available in synthetic forms.
This presented a major challenge, but we pushed our chemist to go above and beyond and stretch the possibilities of the palette of natural notes at our disposal.
CONSTITUENTS OF NATURAL FRAGRANCE
Natural fragrances start with essential oils. In addition to essential oils, natural fragrances use oleoresins, distillates, fractions, concretes, absolutes, and extracts. All of these materials are extracted directly from the plant source, but each plant releases its fragrance materials differently. For instance, Rosemary essential oil can be easily extracted from a plant through steam distillation, but true Vanilla comes only in an absolute, i.e., extracted with a solvent.
