Chypre Perfume History and Composition


Chypre Accord

For a number of years I have been thinking of offering a Chypre Accord as its aromatic qualities
lend itself to a wide variety of perfume creations. The fine rich citrus notes  one end of the aromatic spectrum and the lovely coumarinic mossy notes provided  on the other end, with resinous, floral notes of  in between act as a fine crucible for creating a range of Chypre perfumes such as:

Chypre Fruity (Strawberry Melange, Apple Melange, Raspberry Melange, Pineapple Melange, Davana eo, Cape Chamomile eo, English Chamomile eo, etc)
Chypre Floral (JasmineAbsolutes, Rose Absolutes, Orange Blossom Absolute,  Osmanthus abs, Carnation abs, etc)
Chypre Fresh (developing the citrus bouquet with additions of Lime eo, Combava Peel eo, Yuzu eo, Mandarin eo, Citron emetic)
Chypre Forest (developing a forest bouquet with Blue Hemlock Spruce Absolute, White Cedar Absolute, Black Spruce Absolute, Fir Balsam Absolute, Templin Essential Oil, Giant Fir eo)
Chypre Green (developing an herbal dimension of Chypre with Hyssop eo, Basil abs and eo, Rosemary eo, Yarrow eo, Sage eo, etc) 
Chypre Leather (Cade eo, Choya Loban, Choya Ral, Leather Melange, Birch Tar eo)

In short it was in my mind to offer a classic Chypre Accord so perfumers could have a core essence around which they could create their own signature essences without having to individually procure each individual absolutes and essential oils which go into creating the wonderful rich, warm, complex, green, mossy, resinous, coumarinic, delicate floral bouquet that is at the heart of Chypre Accord.
By good fortune colleagues in France with whom I have worked for many years agreed to create a natural Chypre Accord using absolutes of Linden Blossom, Mastic/Lentisque, Oakmoss, Tonka Bean, and Ylang along with essential oils of Bergamot Bergapetene Free, and Patchouli. This concentrated Chypre Accord  is blended in a ration of 25%  pure essences  as listed above to 75% perfumers ethanol to produce a perfume strength essence which is ready to be enjoyed as it is or as a base for further perfume work.
