Cinnamon is a spice that has been used in perfumery for centuries. It is native to Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), the neighbouring Malabar Coast of India, and Myanmar (Burma) and is also cultivated in South America and the West Indies.The spice, consisting of the dried inner bark, is brown in colour and has a delicately fragrant aroma and a warm sweet flavour. Cinnamon is used to flavour a variety of foods, from confections to curries to beverages, and is popular in bakery goods in many places.In perfumery, cinnamon can be found in both men's and women's fragrances and is often used as a middle or base note. Its warm, spicy, and sweet aroma adds depth and richness to fragrances and helps to create a more harmonious blend.

Natural or Synthetic?
Cinnamon is used both naturally and synthetically in perfumery. Natural cinnamon oil, extracted from Cinnamomum spp. bark, offers a warm, spicy scent. Synthetic versions are used for cost-effectiveness and sustainability.
