Spicy notes are gaining popularity in modern perfumery to help convey sparkle, fizz, personality, energy, and sometimes, a mystery to fragrances.

Spicy notes could be divided into "cold spices", like cardamom, coriander, pink pepper, ginger, juniper, and "hot spices", like nutmeg, cinnamon, peppers, and pimento. In both cases, these spices provide a great deal of temper to the fragrance.

Our Spicy Orchid (inspired by Black Orchid by Tom Ford) is a good illustration of the use of hot spices in perfumery, while our Spicy Vetiver (inspired by Terre d’Hermes) is a good illustration of cold spices use.
