What Is the Verbena Plant?

Verbena (verveine in French, or aloysia citrodora in Latin) was cultivated in the rainforests of Chile back in the 1700s, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean and eventually arriving in Morocco, the Mediterranean area, Kenya, and China. This delightful flowering shrub produces a yellow or green oil that smells strongly of lemon, hence its common alias: lemon verbena.

But what does verbena smell like?

Verbena smells fresh and floral (with a hint of lemon!) – a refreshing, yet calming touch of nature. Combined with its garden-like green-herbal nuances, verbena is often used in perfumery as a top note for its freshness and energy. You’ll find it in blends that include bergamot, patchouli, rose, lavender, and sandalwood.

In addition to being used in perfume, verbena oil is also frequently used in home sprays, massage oils, candles, and body products such as lotions and mists. Its aromatherapeutic benefits probably explain its popularity: verbena offers powerful relief from the monotony of the daily grind by inspiring and stimulating the mind through its captivating aroma.

The Most Popular Verbena Perfumes

Lemon verbena is a fabulous scent. But as with anything new, it can be intimidating to bring a new scent into your life. There are so many different perfumes out there, and each has its own unique characteristics. Don’t worry though, we’re here to help. Here are some of the more popular verbena perfumes that might inspire you to find your perfect scent.

To start with, we have the aptly-named Verbena. This verbena perfume from L’Occitane incorporates lemon verbena and geranium for a light, fizzy opening before drying down with a sweet and tart flavor on the skin. Then there’s Creed’s Green Irish Tweed. This Eau de Parfum for men welcomes you with hints of lemon and verbena, accented with peppermint, making for a wonderfully citrusy and spicy opening. Suitable for men of a gentlemanly personality: he who is charismatic, confident, and – above all – at ease with himself and the world. Lastly, we have the iconic lemon verbena perfume featured in Little House on the Prairie, a western TV series that first aired in 1974. In the show, lemon verbena was the perfume of choice for the characters Laura and Miss Beadle. Now admittedly, it isn’t officially on sale, but that doesn’t make it any less popular. You can find inspired versions of the show’s trademark women’s perfume from online marketplaces such as Etsy, or perhaps even DIY your own lemon verbena perfume sachets.
