This olfactive group was named after the perfume Coty Chypre created in 1917. Chypre means Cyprus in French. This sharp scent is based on a harmony of oak moss, labdanum, patchouli and bergamot.
Leather scents in various nuances, from floral, velvety compositions to tart and smoky ones are placed in this group.
Scenting leather products in order to mask unpleasant scent of leather itself, since urine and faeces of cattle, as well as blood and tar had been used in its traditional production, marked the beginning of perfumery.
Citrus fragrances are old and abundant. Its compositions are based on lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit or mandarin, with other citrus, aromatic and tart notes for men and floral notes for women.
The largest fragrant group encompasses numerous versions of compositions with a floral heart. Freshly picked flowers, flowers with aquatic, green or powder nuances, as well as floral-aldehyde, floral-fruity and gourmand compositions.
