It has long been known that vanilla, cinnamon or even pumpkin used in perfumes has aphrodisiac properties on the senses. It turns out that this is also the case with hedione, whose effects on the brain were recently discovered by German scientists at the Ruhr-University of Bochum. Incorporated into perfume formulations, this molecule stimulates areas of the brain associated with pleasure and sexual desire. Hédoné was also, in Greek mythology, the goddess of sensuality and sensuality…
Hedione scent, a galvanizing breath of freshness
Hedione is actually the most intense and fresh part of the jasmine. It was propelled by Dior’s Eau Sauvage in 1966, an ingredient that has been heavily exploited by perfumers ever since.
Its scent has an icy, energetic and lively breath effect, not only increasing the freshness of the formula, but also prolonging its consistency. An airy touch, which gives fragrances that make all the difference.
The 7 most beautiful perfumes that contain hedione
1. Psychic Love by Initio
Well inspired by the discovery of German scientists, the Initio brand has imagined a whole line of fragrances around hedione. Among them, Psychedelic Love combines its refreshing notes with two other aphrodisiac ingredients, rose and vanilla.
2. Givenchy Haute Couture
Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful perfumes in the world. A delicious blend of inventive raspberry and ultra-soft and ultra-pure musk, with a captivating black pepper/vetiver blend. In this composition, hedione supports the sparkling aspects, prolonging wakefulness into the evening without flinching.
3. Eau d’Orange Verte by Hermes
A fragrance that smells of freedom, the great outdoors, carelessness and holiday love. Eau d’Orange Verte d’Hermès, composed of an overdose of citrus and crushed mint leaves, with an icy effect backed by hedione, has remained one of the house’s most cult creations since its creation in 1979.
4. Aqua Vitae Colon Forte by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
This fragrance is a splash of freshness, a breath of fresh air. This, thanks to the airy accents of hedione, of course, enhanced here by sunny notes of lemon and Sicilian mandarin. Transparent and desirable, like a large glass of lemonade under the killing sun.
5. Rochas water
Full of the olfactory riches of the Mediterranean, this fragrance is fresh and sensual like a perfect dip in the sea, thanks to a sparkling citrus trio at the top: lemon, bergamot and mandarin. Everything is covered in a veil of basil/green verbena and bunches of white flowers, brightened by hedione.
6. Double Water by Diptyque
A very modern and very elegant version of vanilla, in contrast to the gourmet compositions you often associate with it. Here, vanilla, tastier than ever, is exploited in its drier facets by lively notes of hedione, and a cool spice accord emblematic of Diptyque.
7. Flower by Kenzo
A delightful hint of violet, sensual drops of hawthorn, carnal rose…all twisted by an energetic whiff of hedione and topped with a vanilla base that no one can resist. Here’s the fantastical scent of poppies, a Kenzo bestseller.
