When you think about perfume ingredients, pineapple probably isn’t the first one that comes to mind. To be fair, that’s because it’s not that commonly used. However, when people first smell pineapple perfume, they usually rave about its sweet, distinctive aroma; which is intensely evocative.
If you’re curious to know more about pineapple scented perfume, here’s some useful information to help you.
Pineapple fragrance – what’s it like?
There’s nothing new about using fruit in fragrance. Lemon, bergamot and apple are all commonly used in perfumes around the world. So why is pineapple not so common? Well firstly, it’s more expensive. It’s also hard to extract long-lasting scent from it. However, when perfume-developers make the effort to preserve that great pineapple fragrance, it’s beautifully intense.
Pineapple is a naturally sweet fruit, but it has a sharpness to it too, which is why it works so well in fragrance. That little bit of bite provides the perfect counterbalance to so many other ingredients, such as vanilla, coconut or even the more sultry scents, like amber and sandalwood.
What sort of pineapple perfume?
As far as we’re concerned, the perfect pineapple perfume should transport you to a tropical island. It’s such an evocative scent, that as soon as you inhale it, images of white sandy beaches and clear ocean waters should come to mind.
It’s a fresh, punchy sort of smell, so as a result, the average pineapple cologne is likely to be more suited for daytime wear than for evenings. Even better, if you’re looking for the perfect holiday fragrance, this is definitely a good option!
Our version of Virgin Island Water is a great example of a pineapple perfume in action. It’s a fantastically tropical scent, with not only juicy pineapple, but also the heady scent of hibiscus and the sweetness of coconut. To round it all off, the fragrance also features lime, mandarin and tropical wood, with just a hint of ylang ylang and jasmine.
In fact, one of our reviewers commented that it was reminiscent of pina colada, which is definitely a nod to this perfume’s more playful side. Put simply, if you’re planning on jetting away this summer, this is the ideal cologne to take with you.
Is pineapple scented perfume right for you?
Pineapple is such a strong, distinctive aroma that it’s not guaranteed to be to everyone’s taste. However, if you like your fragrances to be immediately recognisable, potent and lively, then it might be worth testing a pineapple perfume out, to see if it works for you.
Think about the following before making a decision:
- Where will you wear it? Are you looking for the ideal fragrance to wear on holiday? Or do you want something that’s more suited for daily use? What about in the evenings? For example, if you’re searching for a fragrance that’s sensual and opulent, a pineapple-based scent might not be quite what you’re looking for.
- Do you like attracting attention? If so, pineapple is a natural match for you. Its recognisable aroma is sure to turn plenty of heads, which is great if you want to make a big impression.
