Pineapple Plant


The scent pineapple is a aroma compound known as methyl butyrate. Like most esters, it has a fruity odor, in this case resembling pineapples. At room temperature, it is a colorless liquid with low solubility in water, upon which it floats to form an oily layer. Methyl butyrate is present in small amounts in several plant products, especially pineapple oil.

It can be produced by distillation from essential oils of vegetable origin, but is also manufactured on a small scale for use in Burberry Summer cologne/perfume.

Citron Fruit


Citrus is a common term and genus (Citrus) of flowering plants in the rue family, Rutaceae. The most recent research indicates an origin in Australia, New Caledonia and New Guinea. Some researchers believe that the origin is in the part of Southeast Asia bordered by Northeast India, Burma (Myanmar) and the Yunnan province of China, and it is in this region that some commercial species such as oranges, mandarins, and lemons originally came. Citrus fruit has been cultivated in an ever-widening area since ancient times; the best-known examples are the oranges, lemons, grapefruit, and limes.

Rhoifolin is a chemical compound. It is a flavone, a type of flavonoid isolated from Boehmeria nivea, China grass or ramie (leaf), from Citrus limon, Canton lemon (leaf), from the bigarade or bitter orange (plant), from the grapefruit (leaf), from Ononis campestris, the cammock (shoot) and from Sabal serratula, the serenoa or sabal fruit (plant). Flavones are a class of flavonoids; flavonoids are a class of plant secondary metabolites that are used in Burberry Summer cologne/perfumery.

Tonka Beans

Tonka Beans

Tonka beans had been used as a vanilla substitute, as a perfume, and in tobacco before being banned in some countries. They are used in some French cuisine (particularly, in desserts and stews) and in perfumes. Its use in food industry is banned in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration. Many anticoagulant prescription drugs, such as warfarin, are based on 4-hydroxycoumarin, a chemical derivative of coumarin initially isolated from this bean.

Coumarin itself, however, does not have anticoagulant properties. Tonka bean oil is extracted from the seed of the Dipteryx odorata. The oil is composed primarily of coumarin, which is used to flavor tobacco. It is neither a pressed oil, nor an essential oil, but was traditionally obtained by soaking the large, single tonka bean seed in rum or other alcohol for 24 hours, after which crystals of coumarin appear on the outside of the seed, and are collected.

The seeds contain up to 46% oil by dry weight. In more recent years, most commercially produced coumarin is synthetic, which has reduced the demand for tonka beans as a crop. Coumarin derivatives are also used medicinally, as anti-coagulants. Coumarin is a fragrant organic chemical compound in the benzopyrone chemical class, which is a colorless crystalline substance in its standard state. It is a natural substance found in many plants. Coumarin is used in certain perfumes like Burberry Summer and fabric conditioners.

Coumarin has been used as an aroma enhancer in pipe tobaccos and certain alcoholic drinks, although in general it is banned as a flavorant food additive, due to concerns regarding its hepatotoxicity in animal models.

Thyme Herb Leaves


Thyme is any of several species of culinary and medicinal herbs of the genus Thymus, most commonly Thymus vulgaris. Ancient Egyptians used thyme for embalming. The ancient Greeks used it in their baths and burnt it as incense in their temples, believing it was a source of courage. The spread of thyme throughout Europe was thought to be due to the Romans, as they used it to purify their rooms and to "give an aromatic flavor to cheese and liquors.

Oil of thyme, the essential oil of common thyme, contains 20–54% thymol. Thyme essential oil also contains a range of additional compounds, such as p-Cymene, myrcene, borneol and linalool. Thymol, an antiseptic, is the main active ingredient in various commercially produced mouthwashes such as Listerine. Before the advent of modern antibiotics, oil of thyme was used to medicate bandages. 

Thyme essential oil also contains a range of additional compounds, such as p-Cymene, myrcene, borneol and linalool.

Nerolidol, also known as peruviol, is a naturally occurring sesquiterpene found in the essential oils of many types of plants and flowers. There are two isomers of nerolidol, cis and trans, which differ in the geometry about the central double bond. Nerolidol is present in neroli, ginger, jasmine, lavender, tea tree, Cannabis Sativa, and lemon grass. The aroma of nerolidol is woody and reminiscent of fresh bark. It is used as a flavoring agent and in perfumery.

It is also currently under testing as a skin penetration enhancer for the transdermal delivery of therapeutic drugs.

Aquatic Notes and Burberry Summer

Calone or methylbenzodioxepinone, trade-named Calone 1951, was discovered by Pfizer in 1966. It is used to give the olfactory impression of a fresh seashore through the marine and ozone nuances. Calone is similar in structure of certain alicyclic C11-hydrocarbons like ectocarpene, excreted by some species of brown algae as pheromones. Calone is an unusual odorant which has an intense "sea-breeze" note with slight floral overtones. It was used as a scent component since the 1980s for its watery, fresh, ozone accords, then as more dominant note in several perfumes of the marine trend, beginning in the 1990s, one being Burberry Summer a man fragrance.

White Musk

White Musk s in the perfume industry, are a class of synthetic aroma-chemicals to emulate the scent of deer musk or other natural musk. Synthetic musk s have a clean, smooth and sweet scent lacking the fecal/"animalistic" notes of natural musk s and are sometimes attributed as having notes of blackberry and ambergris. These compounds are essential in modern perfumery and form the base note foundations of most perfume formulas. Most, if not all musk fragrance used in perfumery today is synthetic.
