The garden-fresh scents of tomato and basil

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 08/10/2011 - 7:59 PM

Nothing says summer like garden-ripe, homegrown tomatoes and fresh herbs. And while a caprese salad and homemade salsa are completely agreeable to the taste buds, do they really work in your fragrances?

The fact that, here at FragranceNet we are often sold out of Marc Jacobs Basil perfume and Donna Karan DKNY is a clear indication that, yes, tomato and basil indeed work in fragrance form.

There are other fragrances on the market that contain notes of tomato and basil, including Nina Ricci’s Liberty Fizz, CK Truth, Jo Malone Lime Basil, Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, Annick Goutal Passion, Essential by Lacoste, Sisley Eau de Campagne and Demeter Wet Garden cologne spray.

The greeness of the tomato note often blends well with accenting floral notes, providing an overall crisp, clean aroma … as well as a reminiscent olfactory experience. Let’s face it. Nothing really beats the smell of a ripe vegetable garden.

Makes me want a slice of tomato right about now.

You read those blogs for certain information; information we may not provide as handily… say for instance fragrance launches or reviews of the newest scents.Of course we’ll have that information from time to time, but why do something that’s already being done … and well? We’ll see what happens with this little blog that could. Hopefully, if anything, it’ll just be fun to read and give you a peek into our world at FragranceNet.com.My name is Wendy.
