Korres Rose Wood/Blackcurrant/Cyclamen, Saffron/Amber/ Agarwood/Cardamom, Pepper/Jasmine/Gaiac Wood/Passion Fruit (2009) {New Perfumes}

Rose Wood/Blackcurrant/Cyclamen

Korres has introduced a series of three perfumes presenting interesting note contrasts inspired by four main fragrance facets: spice, fruit, wood and flower. They are called - the descriptive names are quite long - Rose Wood/Blackcurrant/Cyclamen, Saffron/Amber/ Agarwood/Cardamom, Pepper/Jasmine/Gaiac Wood/Passion Fruit. Special care was taken to develop eco-friendly formulae...

"As part of an ongoing effort to eliminate potential exposure to polycyclic-musk (PCM), nitro-musk and phthalates, Korreshas opted for a fragrance that is free of these synthetic, non-biodegradable compounds that are widely used as fragrance fixatives and are known to cause irritations and bioaccumulation; Korresdeveloped instead a formula, preserved with a natural food-grade antioxidant - Rosmarinus officinalis [rosemary]."

A philosophy of perfume is proposed,

"What is fragrance nowadays? For George Korres it's an expression of individuality and mood, a reflection of the various sides of one's self.  A unique fragrance. Not easy. Not temporary'.[...] A fragrance that is translated into three [3] different blends, each of which was created independently. Grasse, Tokyo, Genève. One brief, yet three of the world's leading perfume houses working closely with George Korres - one perfume house for each scent."

The blends incorporate further notes than the ones listed in the titles of the scents.
