Photo Geranium :: fragrance ingredients

Geranium, with its floral and slightly minty aroma, is a popular ingredient in perfumery. The scent of geranium is often described as rosy with green and citrus nuances, making it versatile in a variety of fragrance compositions. The essential oil of geranium is extracted from the leaves of the Pelargonium graveolens plant. This natural extraction captures the full breadth of the geranium's aromatic profile, from its floral heart to its green and minty accents. Geranium is commonly used in floral, fresh, and herbal fragrance families, where it adds a vibrant and uplifting dimension.

Natural or Synthetic?
Geranium oil is naturally extracted from the leaves of the Pelargonium graveolens plant, usually through steam distillation, producing a rosy, green, and slightly citrusy scent. Synthetics, such as geranyl acetate, are used to mimic its aroma, especially in instances where cost or supply of natural oil is a concern.
